What I Wore: So Cal Fall

Happy Monday Friends!

I have two exciting things to tell you!

1. I have officially made it one week Gluten Free. 
2. It has finally cooled down to the low eighties and it's beginning to feel like Fall!

YES, I consider both of those things very exciting. Haha. Being Gluten Free has been very easy. SO easy in fact I feel like I may have been messing it up. I know that I haven't but I was just expecting it to be so much harder. I think the fact that I have already altered my diet so much that I feel like I am not giving much up anymore. I will keep you updated as the month continues. As for the weather, I am excited that it is cooling down but I am very sad to see Summer end. Summer is my favorite. It honestly depresses me when the sun sets by 5:30pm. Luckily I live in So Cal, so I cannot complain too much about the weather. ;)

Speaking of Fall, it drives me BONKERS that the LA and So Cal fashion bloggers have been wearing layers, jackets and pants making it seem like it has been Fall for about a month now. Yes, I am blowing their cover. It has been 95-100 until last Friday. I couldn't imagine wearing pants or shirts with sleeves let alone LAYERS! I want to bust out my cute fall clothes and boots like the rest of you but it just wasn't appropriate. In fact I have had this scarf for a few weeks, even though it is super thin and light weight, I just couldn't wear it until this weekend. Since I have had it for awhile I have thought of quite a few outfits I wanted to pair it with. I am a huge fan of Black and Cognac together. I wanted an all black outfit to be my blank canvas so that the scarf and my boots were the focal point. I love that this FRAAS Fair Isle infinity scarf is black and white because it can be paired with anything. I am still wearing my tank tops because it isn't that cool. The scarf was the perfect addition and right amount of warmth for what I was doing. I know that it will look good worn with layers in the true Fall and Winter months as well. So this my friends is how I am dressing for the So Cal "Fall" weather we are experiencing right now.

  9. Question about your boots: Do you think they will last a few years or will you need to re-purchase? I have muscular calves, too, and it's hard for me to find boots that will even zip or pull on! Love the way you let them take center stage. I love Fair Isle, too. It's so hard to knit...

    1. Great question... I think that they can definitely last a couple years IF you don't wear them every single day! I also think that the weather will come into account. I live in So Cal so they won't get wet or have to walk through snow which will definitely extend the life. These boots zip up and have a stretchy panel. My calves are 17 1/2 inches and I had no trouble zipping AND have room. That's NEVER happened for me. They are $50 regular but you know they have a new code every few days. I bought them for $37. Even if I have to buy a new pair every year, I am saving money!

    1. Thank you! I was pushing it by wearing pants and boots on that particular day. I only wore it at night so it justified. And yes, up until the last couple of days it has been shorts and dresses too! Gotta love So Cal weather!
