There’s nothing like the changing of the seasons to leave you feeling completely inspired.  Today I happened upon the Current/Elliot Fall lookbook and couldn’t help but picture myself completing the seasonal tasks listed above while wearing a similar look.

(*Full disclosure: Despite yesterday’s Call of Duty post, I still felt hesitant about embracing camo.. that is until I saw this military style blazer paired with an easy plaid dress.  Consider me converted.)

Blame it on the upcoming elections (p.s. go vote) or just plain cyclical fashion, but for better or worse military is back in fashion this fall.  You could go the easy camo route (which isn’t a bad choice given that these Zara gems have made it into just about every blogger’s wardrobe), but I say take a different spin.  Corduroys in deep burgundy (another hit of the season) are a perfect contrast against the neutrals here.  Add shine with a hefty watch and heels to keep the whole thing from skewing too masculine.  I chose shorts here to play up the still warm west coast weather, but these skinnies from Madewell will be a better option come cooler days.

Spent the weekend doing a bit more unpacking (organizing in a temporary space is not the easiest), checking out some new spots – including Zuma Beach in Malibu, and finally (despite the fact that it’s still beach weather) easing into Fall with a new two-tone green manicure and fall recipes.  Butternut squash is the new pumpkin spice?  Hope your weekend was just as good!
