Fall Fashion in Los Angeles

Hello from Phoenix Arizona! The bf and I are on a much-deserved vacation here right now. We started off in LA last week, and took in all the sights there before driving over to Phoenix.

I’ve been to LA a few times now, and always love visiting Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice Beach while I’m there. We took one afternoon to walk from Santa Monica to Venice Beach and back – a nice sunny walk along the water. We finished off the day on the Santa Monica pier, which is always an entertaining spot. I love stopping along the beach right before you reach the pier, where you get a great view of both the beach and the whole pier.

I ended up doing the whole walk (14,000 steps in fact!) in my new Denver Hayes Veronica Western Ankle Boots from Mark’s (seen first in this post), which held up so well. It was about an hour walk total, and even with the low heel, my feet weren’t at all sore after we got back to the hotel that evening. The cushioned sole had a lot to do with that. I was so impressed!

I honestly had a pretty hard time styling outfits for this trip. The concept of wearing fall clothes in the warm LA sun seemed like a bit of a contradiction. I certainly couldn’t wear my fall sweaters, but I also felt like full-on summer clothes weren’t appropriate either. I ended up choosing clothes in fall colours that were looser or shorter sleeved so I wouldn’t overheat. And I know LA can be pretty boho, so for our day in Santa Monica and Venice Beach, I opted to wear my new Uniqlo drape mockneck top in a rusty red colour (that I picked up from the brand new Uniqlo at Metrotown), my high waisted jeans, and my sandy-coloured ankle boots from Mark’s.

Just by chance, while we were in LA, my cousin Christine also happened to be in town, so we were lucky enough to meet up with her for a bit to catch up. I told her about my struggled to style outfits for LA, and she said that’s why she went for ‘winter whites’ for her outfit. I thought it was a perfect fit for the setting!

We spent the rest of our time in LA at Universal Studios, Downtown Disney, and of course Hollywood. It was great to see so many places I hadn’t been to in years, and see how they’ve changed (or haven’t changed).
