top 4

camel wrap coat // jeans // tank (I have it in black too!) // leopard wrap headband // nude sandals // small Fendi Bag

Today I’m sharing 4 fall essentials on heavy rotation: tank, good denim, wrap coat (worth every penny), and lastly, a scarf headband.

I love styling a street style look – especially while in Europe. Milan was an amazing place to gather inspiration. I saw lots of edgy looks, but also elevated basics. It got me thinking about my own basics and what my necessities are during this transitional time of year. Which is why I put together this quick list to give you guys some ideas if you’re working on building out your fall wardrobe!


Camel wrap coat

This coat has seen a lot of mileage in the past few days and I know it will continue to at home once the temps cool down. Every year I have to make sure I have a good camel coat and this wrap style is definitely it this year. If you don’t have one, I can’t recommend this one enough.


Layering tees and tanks

Easy tanks and tees are a huge must for me year-round but especially in the fall for easy layering. I could walk out the door in the morning and it’s cool, but then by the afternoon it’s hot, so having great tees and tanks under my sweaters is always a lifesaver. This tank is my absolute favorite and it’s only $20. I own it in three colors.


Denim

A good pair of jeans is key for a successful fall. You know I love a good pair of flairs but also loving a straight style right now with raw hems. Or, I’m always a fan of skinnies with lots of distress.


Accessories

My number one fall accessory right now is the scarf headband. They’re so cute and are perfect for second (or third) day hair. And because I love a good statement earring, I have to include them as a must-have too. I really love to wear a pair with a headband when my hair is more pulled back and the earrings can be on full display.

As always, my shop page is open 24/7. Happy Wednesday!

I am not one to school you on what hats are most flattering, what works for your face and outfit, however, these four hats have changed my opinion on hats. I was always one to shy away from hats since I was going off the assumption that my head was too big to wear them let alone look good in them. That however is wrong according to my hair stylist who told me my head is small. This new found size of my head has me googling brixton hats and fiddler caps and baseball caps alike. I’m hooked. I narrowed it down to four I regularly loose around the house, chide Reid for stealing and will likely be seen on my head on the gram ūüôā Happy Friday!

1. BASEBALL HAT I like the classic Yankees!

2. RED CAP¬†this one is the most flattering and versatile, I can’t stop wearing it

3. BERET Get one in every color! Also in pink

4. TRUCKER HAT This is the cherry on top of a cool casual look

I had the opportunity to drive around Los Angeles in a Mercedes AMG convertible with a driver from Germany and photographer. I won’t lie, it wasn’t my worst job and I spent the day smiling (despite the LA traffic) with my hair blowing in the wind. Our goal was to visit as many LA hotspots as possible in this beautiful ocean blue Mercedes AMG convertible. Who knew LA had so many instagrammable spots? Actually you probably guessed it is FULL of photogenic hotspots, but we only had half a day, so I included 4 below. What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear.

One of the fun things about moving from LA from Chicago is everything is new and we are always discovering something new here in LA! We like to support small businesses, so it was fun to stumble upon some unique caf√©s that make LA so unique. Just don’t forget to bring your laptop, a magazine and order a double espresso. A good caf√© is worth savoring.

2. Café Birdie 5631 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042

Our family weekend was full of energy, and started with brunch at Dinette. So much yum and lots of people watching! The kids enjoyed the croissants while we went for the avocado toast, which was no sacrifice let me tell you. You almost can’t believe it’s good for you. We love avocado toast so much that I compiled my top faves in LA below. Am I missing one? Let me know! And, if you’re curious, see our top coffee shops in LA¬†here.

Top 4 places to get avocado toast:

Ledlow (So many good layers and a little kick. Not to mention the whole place is insta-worthy)

Winsome (I loved the creaminess. So good and super kid-friendly. It always makes my list.)

Gracias Madre¬†(Oh my goodness. You will be asking for a double order. Don’t forget the guac. This place is also insta-worthy)

Dinette 1608 Sunset Blvd. Great people watching, kid and dog-friendly, and great avocado toast. Go early.
