over-the-knee and cozy.

ok guys, but these boots though! seriously, i am obsessed. they were definitely my investment of the season and i thought about them for at least a month before pulling the trigger, but they are mine now and I couldn't be happier! club monaco really pulled out all the stops to make the perfect otk black suede boot. i hope you agree ;) paired simply with grey denim and an oversized sweater, this is a go-to fall ensemble. try also pairing with tights and a mini skirt or a dress! enjoy!

last stop, london town! enjoying the city with a visit to buckingham palace and a walk through the royal parks. london felt like home and is a city we could live in easily. the perfect blend of san francisco and new york, topped off with charming british accents and royalty.

blush is definitely the color of the season. i am loving this easy, breezy, flowing skirt paired with the contrast of leather in the jacket and the bag. #fall enjoy!
