I am so happy fall is here! The weather is better, and the fall styles are so fun and fresh! Love! It was refreshing to be able to wear this new fall outfit and enjoy a relaxing lunch with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun. She took these outfit photos!

If you have been following along, you may have heard me talk about how wide leg pants have too much fabric on someone short as myself. Well, I found wide leg jeans for short people like me! If you are short, or you shop in the petite department, I found wide leg jeans we can wear! Yay!

These fabulous, 1970s vibe jeans are available in short, regular, and tall. I am 5’4″ so regular jeans which are wide leg, flare, or bell bottom, are usually waaaaaaaaaay too long for me. So when I saw these jeans in short, and tried them on, I was hooked! They don’t hit the floor in bare feet, yet they hit in just the right spot with boots. My boots have a 2″ block heel, so they are tall, but not too tall. If I wanted to wear sneakers or loafers with these jeans I could, since the jeans are the right length.

The cool thing about these jeans, is if you are not short like me, they also come in regular and tall. I have a good friend who is tall, so I know she can wear these in the tall size. Love that!

Word on the street is that skinny jeans are over, much to my chagrin. So, it is time we find the new styles in our sizes! This fall season, we all need to replace our skinny jeans with a pair of wide leg jeans, and a pair of flares. I will definitely be posting more jeans as I find styles that work with short legs like mine!

Now that we have discussed jeans, let’s talk about food! haha My friend Dawn and I enjoyed a yummy lunch at The Counter at Santana Row. If you have not eaten at The Counter, you must go! They have a large variety of possible sandwich combinations you can customize on your own. I love their Impossible burger with cheese, mushrooms, and pesto. They also have meat burgers, chicken and veggie. It’s so good!

Rainy day event outfit

rainy day event outfit ideas

Wearing: blue and silver earrings / puffy faux leather jacket / dress (original post here, current version here) / black handbag / fall nail polish / boots (old, current version here) /

This is one of my favorite dresses, and I rarely have the opportunity to wear it! I purchased it in the fall of 2019 to wear to fashion week, and then in early 2020, everything shut down. This meant my dress just hung in my closet for quite some time! Now that events are starting to make a comeback, I finally had an opportunity to wear my dress again. Yay!

Last week, when it was raining here (yes, we got rain! Yay!), I attended an event at the Olympic Club which was originally scheduled in 2020 and had to be postponed for obvious reasons. It was so nice to finally be able to have an in-person event! The Bay Area has really been shut down, so it is only now that life is starting to look normal; including rush hour traffic, but I digress. . .

This dress is really fun because it looks like a skirt and top, but it is one piece. It is really easy and comfortable to wear, plus, it makes people think you are good at tucking in your top. haha I love the new versions of this dress in stores for fall, maybe I should pick up another one now that I have places to go! Love!

If you are looking for an investment jacket, this one is fabulous. I purchased it last year and the brand continues to have it on the market. It is a classic puffer jacket, and since it is faux, you can wear it in the rain. Love that! I’m looking forward to staying cozy in it again this year. If you are in the market for a fabulous and cozy jacket, I highly recommend this one!

Pink blazer and jeans

Wearing: purple and gold earrings / sunglasses / black twist neck top / pink tweed blazer / G buckle belt / jeans (old, love this pair) / fall nail polish / ivory handbag / golden boots /

I’m wearing bright pink! The Barbiecore trend is so much fun, and I love that this trend is so easy to wear and integrate into anyone’s personal style. Some people who love a bold look can rock bright pink in an all-over, tonal look. Others, like myself, who just want a touch of pink, can rock this trend with one article of clothing, or even with accessories such as earrings, a bracelet, or a scarf. Love it!

This blazer is really fun. I love the tweed fabric and the bright hue. It is easy to throw over jeans, a skirt, or a dress for a polished, Barbiecore look. Love that!

One of the color combo’s a few designers played with for fall was adding purple touches to pink. Yes, the pink and purple combo we all wore in the 1980s, it might catch on again! So, I paired my pink blazer with purple earrings just to have a touch of my favorite childhood color combo. Seriously, I think my whole closet was pink and purple back in the day! haha

Since I was in a fun mood, I paired my pink blazer with my golden boots. Aren’t they a kick! This pair is actually quite comfortable, and I was able to walk in them as strolled through San Jose’s Japantown and enjoyed lunch at Minato. If you haven’t been, it is an old, established restaurant that has been in San Jose for decades. They have delicious entrees with very generous portions. I had a tone of leftovers! The food is really good, and the service is exceptional. If you haven’t been yet, you need to go now!

I enjoyed the tempura lunch and my mom had a steamer bowl. They were both sooooo good!! Both dishes are delicious, in case you are wondering what to order.
