How could I resist this path, filled with beautiful fall leaves, in the parking lot at Stanford Shopping Center? I couldn’t! My original plan was to find some pretty holiday decor, and snap some photos in front of it, but then, I saw this path and had to change my plans immediately! Can you blame me? These fall colors are soooooo pretty!!

While it is still technically fall outside, I am in full-on holiday mode. This fall season has been so busy with my kids schedules, that I haven’t really had time to relax, or think! I am craving the holiday season because it means peaceful time with my family, moments to share with my friends, and more time to chat about fashion, style, and beauty with you! Love that!

When Chico’s sent me this black twin set as a holiday gift last week, I was thrilled! I love a good classic twin set; especially in black! This is a great twin set to reach for on casual days since it is over-sized. I gave it a little holiday flair with my green scarf from my holiday capsule wardrobe. I can definitely give it more sparkle after Thanksgiving 🙂 If you don’t own a classic twin set, you need one! Definitely check this one out, it comes in a ton of colors! Love!

Are you excited for the holiday season too? Despite it being busy, do you find it peaceful and relaxing too?

Puff sleeves and cropped wide leg jeans for fall 2019

puff sleeve trend paris texas boots chloe baghow to wear cropped jeans

wearing: sunglasses / blue and silver door knocker earrings / lipstick / black puff sleeve top (last seen here and here) / snake belt / cropped wide leg jeans / Chloe bag / pearl bracelets (purchased in Hawaii, similar here) / holiday nail polish / black stamped croc boots /

“These boots were made for walking. . .” well. . .not really. They are comfortable, for high heel boots; but they are not walking shoes, like sneakers. haha That being said, isn’t it fun to quote Nancy Sinatra lyrics now and then? I think so!

I can’t seem to get enough of this black puff sleeve top for fall. It’s turned into my workhorse top of the season. I have been pairing it with different styles of jeans, various booties, and also skirts! It’s black, so it goes with everything. It’s also comfortable, easy to wash and wear, and the puff sleeves are super trendy and fun. Love!

These cropped, wide leg jeans do extend me horizontally on camera, but I tell ya, in person-they do not! It’s so weird how some articles of clothing add weight when photographed, while others do not. I think the high waist, and cropped leg, are what make them add weight in pictures. In person, these jeans don’t do that! So, maybe I just need to stop photographing them, haha! They are super comfortable and really do look nice in person, if you are in the market for cropped, wide leg jeans! I really do recommend this pair; unless you want to snap pictures in them everyday, then maybe forgo the wide leg, cropped look for now. . .just sayin’

Have you tried the wide leg, cropped pant trend this fall season? If so, what do you think?

Sweater weather and fabulous boots

Hello sweater weather! It’s finally cooled off here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and it feels so good! I love getting cozy in a soft sweater, and wearing a fabulous pair of boots.

These boots are soooo amazing! Of course, as I write this, I realize you can’t really see them. They are hidden by my bootcut jeans. What you can see is the stamped croc pattern which is golden on black leather. It’s about as fabulous as stamped croc can get; at least in my closet! What you cannot see is the top of the booties which offer a western style, cowgirl boot top. They are wide, curved and amazing. You can see them online here. Next time I will make sure I wear them with a skirt, and take a close-up photo of the boots to show you!

This is a great, late fall look for cool, casual days. If the morning fog burns off, and temperatures rise, the sweater can easily come off. It’s all about layers this time of year! It can be fifty degrees one day, then eighty degrees the next. The weather is always confusing itself during the fall season!
