just blew it

The weather was perfect until the sunset and until I reached La Jolla Cove in Sandiego, Calif. I knew California weather wouldn't allow me to wear a faux fur coat or even a jacket perhaps in the middle of October, so I opted that out. But man oh man, was that a bad decision. Dave Chappelle finally came back from his vacation to Africa to do a stand up comedy show and I had never been to a LIVE comedy show and bought tickets right when I found out about the event. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and helped me with a big laugh when I was feeling depressed. Well, after driving about 110 miles from my home, it was well worth the long drive there and back. 

My photo shoot for my blog was one of the reasons why I left for San Diego at around 2p.m. The show started at 10p.m. My outfit was perfect (or so I thought) on my drive there, but right when I arrived at La Jolla Cove after getting some pizza at Bronx Pizza, which was SO delicious, I knew I had made a mistake. It wasn't too windy, but the weather was just very chilly. One thing is for sure I'm glad I have a closet in my car full of clothes(haha). I took my maroon/ ox blood colored jacket from Free People I recently purchased to celebrate the upcoming fall weather and put it on to keep me warm. At least my "just blew it" UNIF tank is still showing in these photos. I am so in love with this shirt and I love how UNIF pokes fun at some of the highly known brands out there, making it a statement piece for streetwear fashionistas and fashionistos out there.

Long story short, I kept myself warm, yet still in sync with a somewhat fall weather in San Diego and survived the day. Dave Chappelle was also an amazing performer and I plan on finding other standup comedian shows to attend to in the future.

fallin into fall

I am so ready for fall. This wishy-washy weather has been driving me crazy. I don't know whether to take a jacket with me or not because one day it's hot and one day it's cold and it gets cold at night at this time of the year. Since the weather in Long Beach cooled off other day, I told myself "why not?" and took my One Teaspoon leopard jacket, which I am in love with. Part of the jacket is leather and part faux fur. The combination of leather and fur is perfect because it keeps me warm, but at the same time because the leather part of the jacket is on the thinner side, it doesn't get too hot when I wear it. 

Thin layered one-piece dresses like this one from For Love and Lemons, are perfect for the weather right now in Southern California when the weather is just shy from 75 degrees. At night, I just wear a jacket to keep me warm from the breeze.

I also am so in love with the hi-lo concept of the Barbara Bui boots that I recently purchased from yoox.com. They sell different designer brands, which makes it easy for shopaholic designer brand fanatic individuals for me to shop on the site for designer brands. (TIP::: They also have a lot of stuff on sale too!) I've also been looking for the perfect boots that don't hug my calves too tightly because I have a little complaint about my muscular calves. The length of the boots is also the best because it makes my legs look extra longer!

reach for the sky!

Fall is all about layering and I am so ready for that. But the weather hasn't gotten cold enough yet to layer up like a 'mofo. Before "fall weather" in Los Angeles comes, I want to wear all my sheer skirts with some shorts on the bottom to reveal some legs for days type of thing going on here. I just love how sheer skirts, shirts just anything sheer makes everything a thousand times sexier than revealing 90 percent of your bare skin. 

Were you fooled by my cardigan? Cuz this isn't an ordinary kimono cardigan. It looks like a normal cardigan, but it doesn't have arm holes to wear it. So it's basically like a poncho, but an open poncho. Gotcha there, didn't I?! I just love how you can wear it around your shoulders or wear it to cover your entire upper body. 

I love skirts with slits on them. You get to show off your sexy legs without being too out there about it. The skirt is super sheer so you have to make sure to wear something inside and yes I am wearing biker shorts inside. Without it... You're basically going out naked and showing the whole world the color of your undies. Can't wait to layer up for the upcoming fall weather. I hope you're all ready too!
