Fall in Southern California can be a tricky one. Come September it feels like we should be dressing the part for the change in season, but LA’s warm temperatures don’t usually permit for that. In fact, September is often the hottest month of the year. Since it can be a challenge to find the middle-ground, I try to opt for colors and textures that look more like fall, but still feel practical. These jewel-toned shorts are a perfect example. The darker colors elicit a feeling of fall, and pairing them with leather mules instead of sandals offers a bit more coverage. To complete the jewel-toned look, I added these Madewell bangles for a delicate pop of gold.
