When I lived in Toronto, which I did for most of my childhood (including my formative teen years), I loved the Fall. Let’s be clear, I loved the weather, not the imminent return to school. Yes those crisp, cool days when apples are sweeter, the air seems a little cleaner and people begin to feel a bit friskier. I loved it. Now I live in LA and though September is our hottest month, there is still a sense that a seasonal shift is afoot. And so, I begin to layer! I’m easing into it with a weather-appropriate lightweight chambray shirt and a flirty vegan leather skater skirt, both from Forever 21. I’ve tied it all together (see how I did that?) with a sweetly simple bow belt from Ted Baker. Et voila! A nod to Fall with due respect paid to the still-blissfully-warm sun. Next stop, sweater weather! Stay tuned.
