inspired by: longer lengths

It's finalllly cooling down in LA and I can actually think about fall clothes without breaking out into a sweat.

Living in a warmer climate, naturally I need to amend my wardrobe as necessary during the transitional seasons. Retailers may be selling turtleneck sweaters, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be wearing them in October (the same cannot be said about PSL, I can drink those anytime, rain or shine... or heat wave.) It sounds basic but I am shocked time and time again with people who completely disregard the weather in their sartorial choices.

Stop trying to make fall happen.

My snark aside, to each her/ his own. You do you. All that jazz.

A trend I have been loving for the past couple of months, and one that can be easily worn this time of the year in LA, is anything with long layers. Long cardigans, long sweaters over long skirts, long coats, long vests. My personal favorite would have to be the long shirt dress. While I don't have the body or confidence to wear a normal dress over jeans, I love the concept of a maxi length shirt dress. Unbuttoned to allow a sliver of a pair of skinnies or a mini skirt to peek through, it's the perfect nonchalant, effortless look. Even this black silence + noise silky shirt dress I referenced in a previous post (...and ended up splurging on) might be a contestant for this ensemble.

Here's some pinterest inspiration for this style:
