When Pretty and Pumpkins Collide


Boots: Lucky Brand Leggings: Alice and Olivia Top: Free People Scarf: Coach Hat: Saks

Well it appears as though the seasons have finally caught up to the calendar. Mother nature has finally had her obligatory Pumpkin Spice Late (with soy, of course cause that’s just how I envision Mother Nature to roll) and has bestowed upon us days where it actually makes sense to wear a scarf and yes even boots!

So what better way to spend the first chilly day in Fall other than to head up to my new official favorite photo spot, Rileys Farm in Oak Glen. This time I took my little family with me. My little Olivia had a blast running through the fields of pumpkins and yes we are those dog people who let her pick out her own pumpkin.


So in the spirit of weather below 75 degrees, which by So Cal fashion bylaw means it’s time to bundle up, I grabbed my favorite boots, hat, big glasses and my newest Fall addition, my plaid scarf and boom! Perfect Fall ensemble! Minus the peacoat due to the ruggedness of my destination. However, despite some previous investments into ensuring serious Fall vibes when it comes to the style department such as my favorite ALC leather pants, there are some other staples I look forward to adding to my closet this season. See below my list of Fall must haves for this season.

  • Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots
  • Vegan leather leggings- Free People, because, well obviously.
  • Wildfox Sweaters- because one can never have too many of those. A
  • Tunic Dresses in all dark hues- navy, burgundy, and maybe even some emerald for kicks and giggles.
  • More scarves- Prints and solids to mix it up.

In addition to cooler temps and pretty foliage, what are your favorite things about Fall dear readers?









Just Call Me Jessie The Pumpkin Slayer

First of all, THANK YOU Wildfox for creating my go to Halloween shirt. Who doesn’t love a smiley face top with fangs? Just call me Jessie the Pumpkin Slayer! Although, if you ask my boyfriend or my Grandma apparently this outfit screams Julia Roberts “Pretty Woman.” Interpret that how you’d like.


After the Pumpkin Patch we ventured over to South Coast where I got compliments everywhere I went on my outfit! Some guy practically chased after me to tell me my outfit rocked. Thanks again kind sir! Finally I had to confess. The reasoning behind the decision to sport these absolutely awesome Sam Edelman boots was for reasons of vanity and concealment more so than anything else. While out getting my Barbie girl on this past weekend I fell and banged my knee up pretty bad. This would mark the second time I’ve skinned that particular knee. Such is the price to pay whilst looking cute wearing wedges. So if you see me covering my knees over the next couple of weeks, it’s due not just to the colder weather but rather a ghastly bloody gooey mess that was simply the result of fashion gone horribly wrong.


Apparently it’s wiser to wait to get your pumpkin the day before Halloween. Mine was only $2!
