This fall I really have played a lot more with neutrals and I thought I’d adventure out even more and play around with pattern and whats better then pattern meets neutral, not much. I have never been a polka dot person and never really saw myself wearing until until Krammer & Stoudt did it right.

I think a fail safe for playing with pattern is to keep the color muted if the pattern is loud – if there is one thing I learned from nights out that went dark is too much of anything isn’t a good thing. With this specific look I paired it with a simple pair of sneakers to keep it casual and a turtleneck because lets be real do I wear anything else? Pairing the other items down helped keep the look elevated and clean. What do you think of polka dot?

I’m all about the chill and in the fall months I’m all about staying cozy. Though we can’t really call it fall here in Los Angeles we can still sit by the fire, okay the balcony and cozy up, yes even barefoot.

As of late I’ve been all about simplistic and minimal wardrobe building. I feel like I’ve started to really invest in staple items that I can transition season by season and only splurge on a few trend items to keep the looks fresh and fun. This specific look is me around the house on a chill work from home kinda day AKA my favorite kinda days.

adm_9469As I get older I’ve come to realize how important and rewarding it is to know where my clothes from. Knowing that natural and high quality materials are used in the process are not only peace of mind but also really show in the longevity of the items. When I discovered Grana a couple months ago I wasn’t only amazed by the quality of the item but also the price point. It’s truly a goldmine when you can find quality like cashmere pieces that doesn’t drain the bank.

While learning about the process Grana goes through to make their cashmere pieces I was blown away. Before Grana even starts to knit, their wool goes through the (nearly obsessive) meticulous process of combing, scouring, dehairing, and spinning. Currently my favorite cashmere piece is this navy turtleneck, woven scarf and silk cashmere crew neck which are all must have essentials in my closet!

Fall is such a funny thing here in LA; the weather doesn’t really change, we start to wear jackets and turtlenecks even though we really don’t have too and everyone starts posting pumpkins on Instagram. Nevertheless its my favorite time of year. I like just about everything about fall time besides one thing; The lack of light.

I dread when the time changes and light starts to leave us at 5PM instead of 8 mostly because as a blogger it forces me to get my not morning self out of bed early to take photos. But that doesn’t stop me from chancing that golden light, I was out with friends when I saw the light lingering when we rushed to the hills to take these shots and oh am I glad we did.

I’m all about fall leaves, warm lattes  and rainy days even though that isn’t what I typically get being an Angelino and all but I can pretend at least. Being an October baby probably gives me a biased for my love for Autumn but you have to admit falls the best and here is 10 reason why.

  1. Fall clothes are just better. They aren’t too much like winter but too simple like summer.
  2. You can jump in leaves (Thats reason enough.)
  3. Two words, pumpkin seeds.
  4. Halloween. (Cause whats better?)
  5. Its that time of year you stop ordering iced coffee and if you are a basic you order a pumpkin spice (PS. I’m not a basic.)
  6. The new iPhone is released (Yeah, I’m actually a major techy and am always stoked for a new Apple device in my life.)
  7.  That crisp air.
  8.  Thanksgiving (AKA FOOOOOD.)
  9.  Theres two words for the season; Autumn and Fall – Whats your synonym Summer, Winter and Spring?
  10. Cause I was born in fall. (Lets be real this should be #1.)
