Just as October rolled in,
and the pumpkins showed up,
and the gourds took over the grocery store,
and the leaves started falling,
and candy corn became a midday snack,
California was all “Oh hell no, it’s not fall yet” and decided to be 90 degrees again.
Kind of like this: “Hi, can I get a pumpkin spiced latte please? But hold the pumpkin, hold the spice, add watermelon agua fresca, and you know what, go ahead and take away the latte part too. Extra ice, extra limes.”
It all happened about a week ago, when I was taking an awesome photography class on a street corner in downtown LA (which I mentioned here, Jaymee mentioned here, and Ann-Marie mentioned here!), and I was sitting in direct sunlight, melting into a pool of hair products and lotion. You gotta love that California sunshine though, because pretty soon winter will be here and you know how crazy CA winters can be. I mean, total mayhem in the seasonal department. YA RIGHT, it’s mild and boring, yada yada. Happy October!

I forgot to mention that I was going to Toronto for 7 days. I usually alert the masses any time I have a trip planned, but this one snuck up on me and before I knew it, I was 3 days deep into the trip and forgetting what a blog even was, etc. Life happens and don’t I know it. Anyway I’m back!
I would LIKE to say that a Toronto-centric blog post is coming, but I also said that a Lollapalooza post was coming and where the hellz is that one? Still on my iPhone, that’s where it is. So I might post one if my brain can kick it into high gear. In the meantime, check out all of our hard work from Toronto on InStyle.com: here, here, and here.
Anyway, this is a weekend outfit if I’ve ever seen a weekend outfit. I took a seemingly nice dress and messed it up with a flannel shirt, because you know what, it gets real cold in the grocery store and I’m definitely not wearing a full-on jacket now that we’re finally experiencing real summer weather. 80 degrees days, don’t I love you so. I have to bring something to keep me warm in grocery stores though, otherwise I’m shivering like Leo DiCaprio on that plank before he drowns as I’m walking from aisle to aisle.
Also, Kyle asked if my outfit was a nod to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero album and you know what, I’m just going to pretend that it is to up my cool factor. I’ve been feeling old and out of touch lately so anything to up that cool factor is FINE BY ME.
