I sure am missing the Carmel weather, especially now that we’re into triple digit temperatures on repeat here in Texas! I honestly can’t even imagine wearing this leather jacket right now… but it was SO fun to be able to wear some of my fall picks a little early thanks to the cooler Carmel temps! These pieces will definitely be coming with me to California again at the end of August… speaking of which, I feel like I’m going to need a serious packing strategy for my upcoming three week long getaway.
This leather jacket was such a solid find! The color is a gorgeous warm beige, and I love the simple moto silhouette – no crazy bells or whistles. I wore almost every day of our trip, as it truly looked great with all of the sweaters, tees and dresses I brought along! It looks just as good with soft neutral hues as it does with the darker ones displayed here. I wore it with a beige + ivory striped sweater on my birthday, as well as with a black tank, white jeans and sneakers on another day of the trip.
I also love a fall floral print, so I couldn’t pass up this ALLSAINTS midi dress either! As luck would have it, these two pieces were a match made in heaven. The dress fits very loose, so I cinched in the waist with the help of my trusty Isabel Marant knotted belt. It’s also sleeveless, which makes it a great transitional piece for wearing early this fall here in Texas. This dress is on sale at Nordstrom and on ALLSAINTS – I went with a size 6 and it’s a perfect fit! This print also comes in an adorable off-the-shoulder top you can shop here and here.
