One of the many reasons I was so excited about leaving the Midwest was a warm October. I mean, Elsa and Anna can actually walk down the street without a full parka and knit hat? Mind-blowing. So to celebrate this inaugural year of Costumes without Coats, the girls and I decided on Batman’s right hand girl: Cat Woman. We had soooo much fun getting dressed and it wasn’t long until the kids were begging to go outside to show off their costumes and demanding pictures (no, you read it right. They wanted pics!). I’ll admit, I’m the mom who is AWFUL at costumes – to the tune of using the couch blanket as a cape. Yup, mom fail. This year, I did away with my old ways. Despite ordering multiple Cat Women costumes, the totally corny headband, and the slightly loose boys’ costumes, ol’ Amazon totally pulled through for me. They, and I really do mean “I”, were a complete success. Let the 88 degree Cali October-trick-or -treating begin!

Are you still reeling from the weekend and need some outfit inspo? Fall is a great time to experiment with proportions and layering and can be dressed up or down. I’m planning on wearing this combo with sneakers for school drop off next week. Next week!! What’s your favorite laying pieces?

So sometimes I like to consider this blog my running Christmas list. For instance, please notice this black and white jacket I’m wearing. Can you imagine Winter without this jacket? I didn’t think so. It’s unexpected texture for that last minute New Years Eve fête that adds a little something extra to my busted knee jeans and tee game. I know, I know, you can thank me later.

I rarely say no to fringe, and this skirt is no exception. I thrifted a black version of this skirt and it’s still a favorite. Gotta love the texture and movement! I like it dressed up with a white or black blouse or dressed down with a denim shirt. I’m sure my 5 year old will be wanting this fringe skirt come Saturday when I get home. Until then, I’m squeezing in as many coffee shops and oceans views in LA as possible despite the insane traffic on the 405. Happy Thursday!

It’s finally bootie season and I’m loving this pop of black and white from Mode Collective. They’re more versatile than you think, with black jeans or a leather pencil skirt. Perfect for brunch at Gjelina’s next week in LA.

There’s a thousand tiles missing from my kitchen along with the baking soda, the birthday plate and let’s face it, an ounce of my sanity. But who’s counting? Someone please tell the weather to get the memo it’s not Winter, but still Fall. My poor 2 year-old Tiger, Candy Corn, Spiderman and Repunzel had to trick or treat in the warm and domestic confines of Whole Foods to escape the not-so-kind 40 degree, blowing wind wet elements. However, organic lollipops cancel out most wrongs. Including Mother Nature’s. Which reminds me, my girls have science projects featuring farm life which we tend to know A LOT about here in the city. HA. So if your specialty is farm dogs and chicken coops, please comment below. Until then, I’ll be hibernating in an alpaca cardigan, these comfy Rockport booties, and eating leftover gummy bears until LA next week.

I’m a huge fan of occasion dressing but it can be a little intimidating. But now, whether it is a client dinner, drinks with the girls or Friday night date night, I have the dress for you. Er, jumpsuit. Let’s be honest, I’m usually not ahead on anything holiday, but the team at Eliza J keeps hitting it out of the park. I’m obsessed with this romantic skirt, and I’m a jeans girl! Go figure. I find Eliza J dresses to have just enough embellishment to stand out, a great classic fit (though it runs a tad large), and stunning colors. Don’t forget a simple nude or pointy-toed heel, both with a much more manageable lower heel, and you’re set! See my 4 picks below and share which is your favorite.

Since I’m usually responsible for holding my children’s hair ties, bandaids, and trash, a dress with pockets is every bit essential. And all of the above can be found in my pockets! This mini dress from Free People checks all the boxes for a fresh and new Fall dress: pockets, mock neck, cobalt, and just the right length for the accompanying tall boots. Shop the look below:
