The Winding Road

20 Sep

I always enjoy getting away from the city.

Even if it’s just a scenic drive through the Angeles National Forest, I love sightseeing. The worries of so many yesterdays melt away as I absorb the beauty of my surroundings.

Life is full of twists and turns and the path to achieving your dreams isn’t always straight. Sometimes, you have to take the longer way, a way that seems to veer away from your intended goal. But having a great set of friends makes things so much better.

As for the changing seasons, I’m starting to feel it. The sun goes down earlier, the wind chill is picking up, and people are pulling out sweaters, scarves, and boots.

LA seasons aren’t as dynamic as other places, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy cold weather gear. I can’t wait to bust out the heavier coats and jackets as I fully intend to take advantage of the crisp autumn air.

Right now, I’m obsessed with biker boots.

I got a cheap pair from Forever 21 and I’ve been trying to wear them as much as possible. Some may say it hits at an awkward length and it can make you look shorter, but I don’t care. To me, it’s awesome.

Outfit Details: Express pullover sweater- XS, Madewell jeans – 24, Free People watch pendant, random scarf, Forever 21 boots

    I don’t think those boots are at an awkward length at all… They are just longer than ankle booties and they look fantastic! Love the tousled hair and that wicked scarf. =0D

    I love the boots too! I think matched up with skinny jeans like you did doesn’t make your legs look short at all!

    I also love the changing weather. 🙂

    I like these boots on you!!! I like how you tucked in your jeans! I have been dying to find out about MADEWELL jeans- do you like them?

      I like Madewell jeans, they’re well-constructed like J.Crew jeans, but they have more variety and styles to choose from. Plus, they’re aimed at a younger market so the jeans tend to be skinnier and smaller than J.Crew ones.

    I love biker boots too!! I bought a pair a few months ago and have been wearing them to death! Makes me feel like I should’ve bought another pair to replace my current ones when they wear out haha

    Been feeling the changing seasons too… it’s darker when I go to work and when I come home now… makes it a little depressing actually. But I do enjoy the cold weather gear too! 🙂
