Slip Into Fall


 Coat: SheIn | Dress: Cotton Candy LA via Forever 21 (Similar: 1, 2, 3) | Choker: Brandy Melville | Shoes: Steve Madden

So, it kind of takes LA a while to get the whole "fall weather" memo. These past few weeks in particular have made it painful to even think about bundling up in fall clothing, with temperatures soaring up to the 100's and my sanity basically dependent on the two little fans in my apartment and my car's AC. Thankfully, the weather has finally started to cool down just a little bit (and by a little I mean a little - it's still mostly in the 80s lol) and light layering has now become more of a possibility.

I'm glad to see that slip dresses are still very much in style because I don't see mine going away anytime soon. And while I could still easily wear them on their own with LA's current toasty weather, I figured it would be fun to style them up for fall anyway and be prepared for when I actually do find myself in chillier temperatures. This silky slip dress from Cotton Candy LA (dupes linked above) and this beige trench coat from SheIn came together to create a look that's got some of that quintessential fall layering action going on but also isn't too heavy. They're both pretty lightweight, and I especially love how breezy the trench coat is. It drapes over whatever you're wearing with no hassle and it cinches sturdily at the waist for when you want to be a bit more bundled up. I got mine in XS just because I didn't want to be completely drowned out by the coat, but if you want a bit of a looser, cozier fit then I would recommend going up a size as it's a bit fitted in the sleeves.

I adore the just-rolled-out-of-bed feel that this outfit possesses. It's effortlessly luxurious and is totally giving me a ~glamorous movie star making coffee in the morning~ kinda vibe. You know, always a good look to go for. The coat and slip dress combo is one that I will definitely continue to rock in the coming months and I'm excited to show you guys all of the different varieties that I'm able to come up with! Stay tuned.
