One of the best parts about going to New York City is not just the shopping, but the stores that stay open ’til 2:00a.m. No matter the circumstances from late arriving flights to picking up a few items during fashion week, I always find myself with the need to hit up Times Square for a midnight shopping excursion. During my last trip, I loaded up on biker jackets, gold hardware jewelry, and anything and everything leather. As someone who very rarely wears all black, I fell in love with this jacket and romper that spoke to the inner biker babe inside of me.

After what felt like a long hiatus from the blog to get settled into my new place, I’m excited to be back with a classic Fall look that I just can’t seem to get enough of. An easy way to gain longevity out of your favorite, classic pieces of clothing is mixing them up with other pieces that you would typically never pair them with. This is exactly the case with these Zara faux leather leggings that have been omnipresent in my wardrobe since we met. Worn with a rich denim shirt, plush vest, and floppy hat, the juxtaposition of textures inspires a boho chic feel channeling a “Maj” Rachel Zoe moment!

Hanging on to every word of the weatherman, “Expect a cold front to sweep through many parts of the Bay Area this week…”, I promptly yanked out my thickest Vail-ready sweater and stepped out into what I was already convinced to be the promulgation of Fall. With my mind fixated on what size Pumpkin Spice Latte I was going to order (Venti because I was going to make this moment last forever), sweat began to bead on my forehead and the San Jose sun lent out a rude awakening as I realized our version of a Fall “cold front” is 48 degrees only existing between the hours for 3 to 5 am. 

Nevertheless, I committed myself to my idea of the season and wore one of my favorite Fall outfits. After a stop at Starbucks for that PSL…on ice… I headed up to San Francisco because I’d be damned if I was going to waste a good outfit on a fair weather Fall.
