Sunday Styles no. 45


Holy confusing weather, Batman! What is going on right now in LA?
Seriously, people, the mornings range from being in the 50's to 60's and the afternoons are in the 70's and 80's...In short, it's a whole world of "what am I supposed to wear?!" all day long, every day.

Don't get me wrong, I adore the crisp morning walk to get coffee and the chilly breeze that hits me when I'm standing in the shade, but one minute I'm freezing and the next minute I'm sweating my bum off. Of course, there is only one remedy for this type of situation...

LAYERS!

Yep. I've been a layer monster the last week and it's definitely helped. Like a fashionable onion, you just peel away the clothes as you step into the sun and re-onion yourself the minute you hit a shady patch and get that delicious fall chill.

T-shirts, light sweaters, crisp button-downs and jackets are the name of the game and for this occasion, I finally went and got myself a new military-style jacket. My older one (you can see it here) has gone through hell and back again. The pockets have holes, there are little tears here and there and though I still adore it, it's not cuttin' it anymore in terms of a good transitional weather piece. It has graduated to "wear to the beach or the park so you can sit on it" status...which is actually a pretty honorary title. Most clothing never makes it that far.

Anyway, cut to me at Madewell last weekend (I think I visit them a little too often, to be honest) and me discovering, like a sailor led by a siren song, this tough-as-nails, but flatteringly tailored military style jacket. There was no question. Done and done. It has lining, it has tons of pockets (a must for me since I like to leave the apt without carrying a bag), and a nice big collar (which my earlier jacket didn't have) for those particularly chilly winds. It's also a darker olive drab, which will allow me to wash it a bunch and let it fade without it basically turning white. YES!

In other news, I'm obsessed with wine-colored lipstick right now. So, there's that too, but I'll write more on that later. No need to go into details here.

So, I'll be taking this little outfit off to the Huntington Library today with Charlesband so we can sit in the shade of a tree and I can try to pretend I don't have to fly again tomorrow to NYC for business. (I'm just thankful that LAX is back up and running and horrified by the shooting...seriously? Can we just ban the right to bear arms now? I'm ok with that.)

Alright. Time to decompress.
Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!! xo!
