Baby, It’s cold outside.

COVERBABY

It’s getting chilly out here in LA! Time to bundle up and stay warm. This is the best time of the year to get use out of all of my favorite sweaters! I am a huge fan of sweaters and I am constantly buying them. The only problem is that I don’t get a whole lot of use out of them here in sunny LA. Anytime it gets below 60 degrees I think its freezing, and take full advantage of layering on the knitwear!

I absolutely love a chunky sweater- add in a loose turtleneck and I’m sold! This Aritzia sweater is sooo perfect. It comes in a bunch of different colors, I promise you won’t be able to choose just one! Throw it on over a faded pair of denim and some loose boots and you are good to go. I added in a little special something with my Valentino Rockstud Crossbody! Stay warm everyone!!

Boot Season!

CHLOÉ Studded Susanna boots

So since fall is here, it’s finally time to pull out your favorite boots and layer up- yay!! I got too excited for it that I packed of one of my favorite pairs to San Diego to try and get in the spirit. Unfortunately, the weather in Los Angeles is still beaming at close to 100 degrees making it very difficult and not fun, to enjoy the fall season. Tear, tear. (Side note: I get many comments/emails regarding posting more “fall/winter” looks for you guys experiencing the real colder weather for inspiration…but it makes it very difficult for me to when it feels like a sauna outside, it’s unbearable! I promise as soon as the temperature drops, I’ll post more fall/winter looks on the blog!)

Even though it still feels like the beginning of summer here in LA, I’m not letting it stop me from preparing for when the temperature cools down enough to wear chunky knits, scarfs, coats and of course boots. I’ve learned to not fall into the whole trend scene when it comes to certain pieces, but as I get older, it really is more about quality over quantity. Before I would just buy, buy, buy and wasn’t really concern about the quality, so I obviously just had a bunch of stuff that really wasn’t worth it. Now, I really scout for the perfect piece, bag, jacket, jewelry, or boots. I really do save money to splurge on the ‘right’ item because I know in the long run, I’ll have it for years to come.

But, I do know some of us can’t splurge because of other priorities, which is completely fine, but I think it’s all about being a smart shopper. Look for deals online, buy on sites like ebay for that designer item you’ve been eyeing, keep track of sales, but most importantly, whatever you buy whether its expensive or not, make sure you’re buying it because it’s a piece that will complement your wardrobe for years to come not just for a couple of months. Always think of quality over quantity, no matter the price.

I splurged a little… well, more like I got lucky, with these Chloé Susanna boots last year when I scored them for almost half the price on a sale! YES! I love the studded details and buckle straps that give it a tough look but the color makes it a bit more feminine and easier to transition from fall to spring. Eventhough the weather is still not fall appropriate, I’m making a wishlist of boots that I’m considering to splurge on for when it finally arrives in LA. I’m thinking a pair of knee-high boots to wear with  flowy dresses with chunky knits or black, buckle strap boots to replace my Balenciaga ones!

Any boots you guys are eyeing for this season or any classic ones? Share! I always want to know what other people are into!

Here are some cool options, both new and classic:
