    "I just moved to California from NYC, so one of the biggest adjustments I'm making to my wardrobe is adding more color — I realized I was wearing SO much black in New York! I like the muted tone of these pink cords because they're unexpected for the season. Keeping everything in the same soft color family allowed me to play with texture for this look. I mixed the corduroy bottoms with a vintage leather belt, a sheer top with floral appliqués, and the fuzziest reversible jacket. I kept the rest simple — a few dainty necklaces are all you need. I've been wearing my CAM Star Mate Medallion Necklace nonstop. I'm a Leo, so the embossed lion is a symbol of strength and protection for me."

    "When the air gets crisp, I like to get outside and explore the hiking trails. Topanga Canyon is one of my favorite places. I'm in awe of the California fall colors, which are a variety of saturated neutrals. A deep blue sky, golden-brown mountains, miles of grey rock mass flecked with patches of green... I was definitely inspired by my surroundings while putting this outfit together. 

    I am obsessed with these chartreuse cords because they're slightly distressed on the ankle, and the high-waist makes them perfect for pairing with my Silence + Noise Roll Neck Cropped Sweater. The white knit draws the eye up and pops against my olive skin tone. Crop tops can sometimes feel a little too 'summer', so I balanced it out with a grey maxi cardigan, and added a classic bandana and stacked gold rings to complete the look."

    "My style changes daily based on my mood; it can be eclectic, bohemian, polished... the list goes on. The grey corduroys are cropped and flared, which I love because they feel a bit seventies. I paired them with a white dolman top and let a little of my Anette Lace Triangle Bra peek through, with a relaxed blazer and fisherman hat for some extra warmth. Since the top and bottoms were black and white, I decided to add some interest with funky accessories. The Ecote Metal Tipped Belt broke up the look, and the Woven Blanket Scarf added some color without being overpowering. I couldn't resist the quirkiness of the Mackenzie Grommet Mini Bucket Bag — for me, this was the best part about this look! I love wearing at least one conversation piece."

    "My boyfriend is a surfer — I usually meet him on the beach in Malibu after work. It can get pretty chilly once the sun goes down, so I like to pair my maroon cords with a cozy sweater. The open mock neck on this one makes it easy to transition from the beach to a night out; I can add a pair of drop earrings and boots and I'm ready to head to dinner at one of our favorite local spots. If we decide to do something more chill, I'll skip the earrings and keep it simple with an over-sized jean jacket. I love how the Indigo denim contrasts with the jewel-toned corduroy in the golden hour light."
