Fall doesn’t have to be all neutral colors, dark colors and the occasional jewel tone. In LA, fall weather comes and goes. For example, this past week we experienced a heat wave that gave us 95 – 100 degree days on the coast. And then this weekend, a rain storm with thunder and lightning.
It can be difficult to know how to dress during these turbulent months of October – February. That’s why I prefer to mix together a little bit of summer, a little bit of fall and a lot of whatever the hell I want.
I purchased this melon-colored v-neck t-shirt from H&M during a “basics” shopping spree. At H&M, they have amazing deals on “basic” everyday items. These shirts are 2 for $10, t-shirt dresses are 2 for $20, and so on. Among the typical white and black v-necks I needed to replenish, I snatched up this fun melon top, figuring I’d find something to pair with it!
As anyone who reads my blog regularly or follows me on Instagram knows, I’m a sucker for orange and melon paired with crisp white.
So for this outfit, I decided to keep with my pattern and pair the top with these crisp white denim capri pants from Fashion Rush. I’m not a pants fan, because I feel like they smother my legs. But capris at least let some ankle-breeze in so they’re better in my book.
I’m also not usually a sandals person, but these strappy white sandals from Payless are so fun. They remind me of what an adult with a put-together job and a nice vacation schedule would wear on some tropical island somewhere. Again, I have an overactive imagination.
To bring the “fall” element in, I added this pink/orange/white infinity scarf from Target. Target has great, affordable accessories. Of course, this super-thin sheer scarf would be absolutely useless in actual cold weather. But here in LA, it’s a super-cute accessory that feels very appropriate for the season. It also blends together the bright orange and clean white.
The scarf acted as a necklace, so I skipped jewelry for the most part and just added a gold left-hand ring from Forever 21.
