Ventured down the road to Laguna Beach today for lunch with my mother at Nick's Laguna Beach. If you are in the area, please go check out Nick's. It is one of my favorite spots to eat locally and the food is always amazing. I always want to try something new when I go, but I always end up getting the braised short ribs--so good! These were shot in an alley way just down the street right before our dining adventure. Every time I go to downtown Laguna I always see this alley and think of how amazing it would look in a photo shoot. It has a touch of urban city, which contrasts greatly against the casual beach lifestyle of Laguna Beach. That contrast in Orange County is hard to come by.
For this outfit I wanted to show some transitional looks that can get you through the fall season. Fall to me is about layering. Here in California it is always questionable how warm it will get through the day or when or if you will even need a light sweater or maybe a leather jacket for a chilly and cold evening. I have always found it an annoyance to be wearing something too light or too heavy. So yes, layering in light to medium fabrics is important!
I started light with an ASOS long-line tee and heavily distressed ASOS light skinny denim jeans. I am so in love with long-line shirts! The length and ease of them are great and I can wear them with anything. I honestly almost forgot I had this tee in my closet and broke it out today for this shoot. I accessorized with a NIXON 51-30 watch, TOPMAN rings, ZARA wide brim felt fedora, and a black ZARA zip clutch. To transition this look for a night out, I would layer on a light cardigan or my go-to leather jacket.
