Links, Love & Other Random Stuff

First off, Happy Halloween!

Does anyone have any fun plans/costumes? In truth, I haven’t really given Halloween much thought at all and will probably relax with a glass of wine and go to bed early. I’m not even sure if we get any Trick or Treaters but we got candy just in case! Here are few links & love from around the web this week…

Come fall, I usually can’t wait to bring out my cozy layers like knit sweaters, furry vests, wool coats & pretty scarves! However, unfortunately the high SoCal temperatures have not been conducive to that type of dressing the past few weeks. A few days ago though, I felt a little bit of a crispness in the air – the kind that I recognized from when the seasons started to turn back in New England. It made me so happy and immediatly conjured up visions of me curled up in front of a fireplace with a cup of hot apple cider. It’s funny how a chill in the air can make you feel all warm and fuzzy  inside and I could think of no better time to break out my new favorite sweater …

I was so excited to find this cream ‘Annie’ sweater from Shabby Apple. It totally reminds me of one my mom used to have when I was younger – and one I would try and steal all the time. It also instantly invokes a sense of nostalgia for me and all the fun fall activities I used to do with my family as a kid. Anyway, there is something so classic about a cream crew neck sweater and I really love the texture of this one. It’s almost a bit like a fisherman’s sweater but a little more sleek & chic.

While I could think of a hundred different ways to style it, I decided to dress the way I wanted to feel that day – cozy! I paired the sweater with a faux fur vest, denim shorts & a pair of riding boots which have literally lasted me over 8 years. To finish off the outfit, I layered gold necklaces, added a vintage bangle and my beat up Fendi cross-body! Sure I could have added some crazy bling or a pop of color, but there is something about neutrals in the fall that I love. Plus, it keeps the attention on the gorgeous cream knit!

I feel like this combo definitely represents who I am right now and my New England meets California style. It’s a little bit preppy, a little bit boho & totally Abby.
