Back-to-School/Southern California Fall Look Book

Outfit One:
DIY Cropped Pocket Tee
American Apparel Easy Jean
Jeffrey Campbell Pointe
WESC Leopard Letterman Jacket

In Southern California, Fall is pretty much still summer because it still gets pretty warm. So I've put together a sort-of summer transition into fall look where the crop top is "summer-y" and the pants and jacket are very "fall." It makes a great back-to-school outfit because it's very comfortable to wear all day…well, maybe not the shoes. For school, you can switch up the shoes with a pair of vans, chucks, or JC platform sneakers.

Outfit Two:
UNIF Bundy Jumper
Obey Mens Cardigan
Nike Air Force Ones

Again, this outfit is a transition from summer to fall. The jumper is definitely meant for when the weather gets warm/hot, but when it does get a little breezy or chilly, throw on a loose cardigan to give that fall look.

Outfit Three:
Cheap Monday Bomber Jacket
H&M Tank Top
American Apparel Easy Jean
Nike "Speckle" Roshes

This outfit is more for when Southern Cali starts to get a little more cold. A bomber jacket will definitely keep you warm when it gets pretty windy in the fall. Then, when it gets a little warm in the middle of the day, the outfit looks good without it. This would make a great back-to-school look as well!

Outfit Four:
H&M Jumper
American Apparel Circle Skirt
Jeffrey Campbell "Cat Tapestry" Platform Sneakers

Perfect fall look for the bi-polar SoCal weather in the fall. Gets chilly and hot at the same time. A nice knit jumper over a circle skirt and a pair of sneakers makes for another great back-to-school look. Very laid-back with a girly and boyish touch.

Outfit Five:
Brandy Melville "Anastasia" Halter
H&M Leather Jacket
Vintage BONGO Jeans
Jeffrey Campbell Soirée

A classic "cool" Cali look. Very laid back and SO "California." Another transition outfit from summer to fall. When it gets windy, throw on a leather jacket to this look and still look cool.

This is just my take on how I like to dress in the fall. I live in southern California where the weather is always beautiful. Hope these looks will inspire some of you this fall! Let me know if you like any of these looks down below in the comment box! Stay Curious, xoxo.
