Just as temperatures started to drop over the weekend here in Los Angeles and I pulled out ALL the cozy sweaters, LA decided to hit us with another almost 90 degree day. While I’m definitely not complaining about the beautiful summery weather here, the schizophrenic temps are not always easy to keep up with outfit-wise. Since Madewell is my go-to store for comfy basics throughout all seasons, I’m sharing where to snag my favorite must-have versatile pieces of the moment for fall. The best part? Many of these pieces are currently on sale for 30% off an already discounted price using the code “ORDERUP.” These basics are perfect for layering (if LA ever allows us to get there!).
Growing up in upstate New York, I always looked forward to fall because I loved pulling out all the layers and textures to celebrate the change of season. Living in Los Angeles where temperatures barely drop below 70 degrees this time of year, we have to get more creative with our “fall” looks so that we’re not constantly sweating profusely. Sharing a fall outfit I’ve been wearing on repeat recently and how to use texture to style it regardless of the temps outside.
Since I was almost entirely bald for the first year of my life (before my #bighairdontcare came in), my mom would spend hours hand-making me bows. Apparently, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree because as soon as I learned Phil and I were having a baby girl, I couldn’t stop building up Naiya’s bow collection too. Thankfully, I’ve found so many bows I love online, I don’t have to spend hours making them myself (because those of you who know me best know that I would totally do that!).
Happy Monday! We spent the weekend celebrating Phil’s birthday with our little family. This year was so much more fun than last year because we don’t feel as insanely sleep deprived as we did with a newborn! I remember that simply keeping our eyes open last year to sing ‘happy birthday’ felt like the biggest task. This year, we had a lot more energy and I loved being able to focus on my hubby who has become the most amazing dad. Excited to jump into a new week in one of my favorite fall dresses. Sharing where to snag it, a collaboration you can’t miss and how I styled the look below.
When I first saw this silk floral-patterned Sandro Paris dress, it was love at first sight. When I realized it was also 60% off, I knew I had to have it. Sharing where to snag this little number and similar ones like it at a steal for fall. I’m currently tracking it down in every color because I’m obsessed. Reviewing how the sizing works too in case you’re ordering online and are hoping to nail the perfect fit without having to deal with returns. Enjoy!
