This jacket though...

In San Diego, it is still nearly 100 degrees every day but September is upon us and it's time to start thinking about Fall attire. I am undeniably obsessed with this light trench coat and that style in general. A light jacket is an absolute necessity, especially during the seasonal transition. This type of outerwear can really turn a generic outfit into a chic little number. It provides just a bit of warmth but ads a ton of character to a simple look. 

I have always considered myself to be someone who "walks everywhere" but now that I've been spending half of my time in New York I've taken that term to the next level. I literally have to walk everywhere and I've become a freak about comfy/stylish shoes. I've always had this idea that women in NY were all like Carrie Bradshaw; running the streets in their 5inch Manolos. Holy sh** was I fooled! After a few weeks, I noticed that I was on the only one limping down the street in my Louboutins. AND, big purses are no longer a fashion statement but a way to store your heels whilst you trot around town in some cozy flats. Needless to say, I've had to make some serious adjustments to my shoe selection. A cute little oxford is a great shoe for the fall. Stylish and comfortable, they can be worn with a pair of shorts, some ripped skinnies or even a fun midi dress. They ad an element of effortless style to a look without sacrificing the flow of your outfit to a pair of flip flops or blistering stilettos.
