POLKA DOTS + PLAID (& A GIVEAWAY!)

The only downside to living in paradise is that we don’t get distinct seasons. I know everyone says this, but Fall is my season. It’s when I feel the most alive, excited, and inspired. Although I love living by the beach and having perfect weather nearly year round, I’m finding myself missing Utah a bit right now with the crisp air, the mountains changing from brown and green to red and orange, and the crunch of fallen leaves under my boots. But if I get up early enough in the mornings right now, the streets are full of fog rolling in from off the ocean, and there’s a tiny chill in the air, and it feels just a little bit like a hot cocoa, pumpkin patch, scarf and sweater kind of day. And that makes me so incredibly happy.

  • I love polka dots and plaid! I really like your ankle boots

  • I'm so amused that we have three of the same pieces you're wearing here–sweater, shoes, bracelet. Actually, not amused, but patting myself on the back because you have great taste! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love your pattern mixing here!

  • It's definitely crisp here! Snow showed up on the mountains yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm not super thrilled about winter, but I do have to admit, I loved using my seat warmers in the car this morning!!

  • Love the polka dots mixed with plaid. Great outfit. IT was definitely cooler here earlier this week, now it's raining, so it's a bit warmer.

    Have a good weekend!!!!

    Agi:)

  • I love the mix of patterns! Do you think the shirt runs small?

    • The button up runs a bit big. I got a small and it's a bit oversized (although I like it that way). The sweater is pretty true to size so I got a size up since I wanted it a little looser.

    • Thanks so much for the quick reply! Gonna have to get me one :).

  • OK, boring technical question, but what does "c/o" stand for?

    Thanks so much, I just discovered your blog through Pinterest, LOVE it!

    • It means "courtesy of," and means that I got the product for free in exchange for a feature on my blog.

      And glad to have you reading along! Thanks for your nice note!

  • such a cute look. I adore the pattern mix and your boots!

  • Love the outfit!!! It's too bad your seasons aren't as distinct but at least you're taking advantage of any chilly weather you get!
