First of all can we just take a moment to acknowledge the fact that I’m talking Fall fashion and there’s a palm tree in the back of my shoot?! Still so freakin’ cool to me. BUT don’t let the beautiful scenery fool you, this location wasn’t necessarily planned. My newfound gf Megan Hofferth and I scheduled a photog date last Saturday in Venice. Little did we know, it wouldn’t be as easy as we thought. After circling around the beach and boardwalk, we walked down some side streets. Eventually we were lucky enough to stumble upon this adorable little canal and voilà! a blogger’s dream was born. Funny what goes on BTS, right?
So although we did see some light rain this past week, it was still like 90 degrees a few days ago. How is a girl supposed to plan an outfit this way? To meet in the middle, Forever 21 blessed us with the beauty that is this dress. First and foremost I feel like a million bucks when I have it on. It’s a amazingly fierce, but it’s ultra soft and comfortable – I could probably live in it.
If you don’t live under a rock, you know the red wine color is trending right now. When you add the warm tones from the floral pattern it just screams autumn! Dropping the hem length from mini to maxi totally makes it more approp for the season as well. The look is stays fun and fresh with the high slit and wrapped waist; plus it’s a little more bearable when the temp spikes midday. Such a perfect outfit for a SoCal Friendsgiving!
Now if someone could just help me pack my suitcase for my trip back to Weymouth that’d be super helpful! Is it seriously already snowing?! I’ve already forgotten what it’s like to grab a jacket before I leave the house. Welp, thanks to Kara’s help (she’s a literal lifesaver), I’m at least a little ahead of the game!
Can’t wait to tell you babes all about what it’s like to be back home again! Safe travels to you and yours xo
