An Autumn Weekend OOTD!

Hey everyone! Guess what?? IT FINALLY RAINED IN SOCAL! I was driving to work the other day (it usually takes me about an hour to get there) and it started pouring rain. I kid you not, it was POURING. I know to most people this is a fairly normal occurrence but to me it was straight up magic. I absolutely love rainy days but they rarely happen here. It was one of the only times I was glad I have a long commute because I could just enjoy the sound of the rain. This weekend has also been slightly chilly. There’s been no rain but I can feel the air is getting cooler. I thought I would bring out another fall OOTD, one that is still quite casual and something I would wear on a weekend during autumn.

As the weather is definitely getting chillier, the sun still pops out once in a while and will literally bake your face if you stand outside for too long. To compensate for the occasional heat, I prefer to mix my summer pieces with fall favorites. I’m a sucker for a giant cozy sweater in the fall (as most people are, LOL) but putting a little California spin on it is my fave. I bought this jean skirt last fall actually and it’s been one of my staples ever since then. It goes with absolutely everything and I love channeling my inner 90’s kid (shoutout to all my 1996 babies). Image.jpgSo with my favorite jean skirt I threw on an oversize auburn sweater. I’m always super into this color when fall begins and it goes well with most outfits (you’d be surprised). My coloring doesn’t do well with anything full on red, so I opt for burgundy, wine, or auburn tones like this sweater. This specific style is tight at the arms and is oversized everywhere else. In order to give my body a little more shape, I tucked in the front of the sweater since the skirt tends to make me look a little square in shape. I’ve been doing this with most of my outfits lately. It’s funny because as a kid I wore uniforms at school everyday and they were very strict about tucking in your shirt. I hated the rule and felt like such a rebel having my shirt untucked. Oh how times have changed!

Since purchasing this skirt, it’s also gotten a little big on me so I usually have to wear a belt. I love this black one because of course it goes with any outfit and this specific design has been super in style recently. I love the silver detailing and how it looks with a shirt or sweater tucked in. I’m learning more and more that with fashion it’s all in the little details, even if that means tucking in your shirt to show a cute belt. So simple but transforms a look!

As for other accessories, I wore a dainty gold necklace that says “Wish” (even though you can’t see it in the photos) and a long rock necklace. I’ve really been trying to accessorize more, even if it’s with one long necklace. I’m finding it makes an outfit more special, even though I’m one to go for simpler pieces. The earth tones in the rock (or is it a crystal?) pair so well with the auburn sweater and I love it for this season! This necklace is also painted with gold on one side! Next, since this is a casual weekend look, I threw on my classic black vans. As you all know, I love a girly look with something more edgy or even masculine. I like to achieve this vibe with my shoes most times, and you can bet you’ll always be comfortable in Vans! 

That’s about it for this OOTD. We oftentimes forget that being comfortable can also be made very cute. Adding small details or changing the way you wear certain pieces can really help transform any look. So get creative with fashion and have fun with it! It’s such an amazing way to express yourself and if you love something, WEAR IT! Let me know what you guys think of this look down in the comments! xx

    I love this outfit! Especially the jumper, it’s so simple but literally makes an outfit! And the necklace is adorable! I wish I lived in the US to get access to these things (as I assume I won’t get them here in the UK!)

    I'm not much of an accessorizer myself but I learned that simple jewelry can sometimes make a whole outfit! I'm not a professional stylist (or good at styling myself for that matter LOL) but anyone would be able to tell that this outfit is bomb! 🙂

    Love that it looks comfy too!! Beauty ain't worth it if I am dying LOL
