Hello there! Yes, I’m still over here complaining about how hot it is in Los Angeles. This is going to be a reoccurring theme for a while here so sorry, not sorry. Earlier this week LA was #blessed with “cooler temps” meaning that for the first time in a few weeks it wasn’t 85 degrees and only upper 70s. Can a girl just wear a pair of pants and a sweater? Is that really too much to ask weather gods?
So, exactly how does an Angeleno dress in fall? Here’s how LA does sweater weather.
For starters, I think it’s pretty impossible to get away with/not die of heatstroke with pants AND a sweater. So if I’m really hell bent on wearing something cozy then I have to counter it with a skirt. It’s just the way the world works for me. This stretchy faux suede skirt has the cutest studded details on the pockets. I don’t like to overdo it with prints or a lot of embellishments, but these studs are just enough to give the look a little something. As for sizing, this skirt is very stretchy. I got my normal size, which is a 4, but if I wanted it tighter I probably would’ve still been okay in a size 2. Since it’s faux suede you can’t really beat the price point – only $85!
Now onto my cozy top from Current/Elliott. They’re known for denim but I think the brand also makes some really great tops. This is less of knit sweater and more of sweatshirt material, but to me still constitutes as a sweater. The ruffles are fun and thoughtfully placed. Sometimes when I wear tops with ruffled sleeves I end up looking a bit broad, but this hits low enough on the arm to avoid that. I’m wearing a size 1 (they have different sizing than other brands) but note that the material stretches out – if I were buying this again I would go down a size.
I bought this hat earlier in the year in NYC. It randomly had my name on it, so I decided I needed it. The kid inside of me that always longed for those nameplate souvenirs from Disneyland was ecstatic. I ALWAYS wanted a keychain or something with my name on it whenever my family went somewhere, but sadly Camille isn’t in the databases for names that go on souvenir gifts. So when I saw this, I was sold. I wasn’t sure what to do with the hat after I came home and thought it was kind of extra. So I’m really happy to see this style making appearances for fall.
So there’s the formula for LA sweater weather. Sweater + skirt + booties = fall in LA. I’m hoping to book some cheap tickets for somewhere cooler soon so that I can have real sweater weather with some pants, too. Any suggestions for a cheap weekend trip from LA that has chillier weather right now?
