With half of October behind us, it's high time to start diving into fall fashion Babes! Am I totally late to the party?! Of course I live in a mild climate...but if there is one thing that I have learned since moving west: Seize the moment whenever it strikes 😀 LOL! I grew up in a climate with four full seasons, each season brought on a new wave of fashion inspired inspiration. My very first year in California I mourned fall! Like seriously. It was extremely hot for most of the year, I found myself wanting to pull out sweaters and coats even when there was no practical need to (especially my furs). Since then the weather has shifted a bit, or perhaps my perception has shifted? Actually, I'm quite sure it is more so the latter. Perception really is EVERYTHING. Flashback: I remember a mentor shared this thought with me early in my career. I rolled my eyes up into my head and silently disagreed. But now...YES- I can totally understand what she was saying! Fast forward: Now I feel like I must have some variation of fall/autumn in my life. 
When I think of fall colors, shades of burgundy (or merlot) near the top of my list. I decided to pair two bold cousins together, adding an extra layer underneath this beautiful deep plum dress (which I've also worn sleeveless BTW). In my head red goes with everything, I have no idea why I haven't paired these two beauties together before 👀
For finishing touches I piled on more red (I've been a fan of red since I was a toddler & I have the pictures to prove it 😊) by way of silk earrings, a bold lippie, socks to add height, and my new booties (which I recently unveiled on my IG Stories)! These booties were totally made for walking - comfort & style -YESSSSS! 
Until next time,
Xx

  2. I agree about perception! Once you really get it, you are unstoppable! :)

    Red is such a powerful color, and I like how you made it more earthy here, it isn't fire here - it's a color of foliage. :) Love this combination!

    1. Isn't that the truth Natalia!?! Once you get it- YOU GET IT!
      Thank you much! I think the deep plum toned down the red (which is truly fire engine), while the red raised the richness of the plum so that the final result was that both colors stood out equally ;)

  3. Hello, I found via Rachel The Hat. I love these two colours together, why is it that autumn and winter clothes seem to be darker shades. What's wrong with a little colour in the cooler months?!
