Fashionable: Fall Knits + A Leather Skirt

Kelly
November 25

I love a good leather piece (especially when its a good faux version) and this skirt is the perfect staple for the “rough” Santa Barbara winter. I paired this flared leather skirt, available locally at Chapala & Parker, with a taupe and black turtleneck, hoop earrings, a cheetah clutch, and black oxford heels.

Fashionable: A Cozy Sweater at Apple Lane Farms

Who doesn’t love a good orchard and Apple Lane Farms in Solvang is among my favorite fall spots. It’s open to the public and you can pick your own apples (the BEST apples ever and stay tuned for an apple chip recipe I’ll be posting on Wednesday). For a nippy fall afternoon I’m loving this chunky sweater which I paired with a simple white T, classic black jeans, my staple Frye boots, gold chain bracelets, and a nude purse, cat eye tortoise shell sunnies all available locally in Santa Barbara at Chapala & Parker. I loved my Brigette- inspired hair and makeup that Jess Wilcox did! And the photos, well I’m pretty sure Lane Dittoe knocked it outta the park.

Fashionable: Polo Vibes

Chanel was right, a little black dress is seriously key piece in any stylish lady’s wardrobe. A couple of weeks ago I styled this dress with a chambray and a fedora for a day time look. This time, I styled this dress simply with an oversized sun hat and Frye boots. This would be perfect look for a cocktail party on a ranch or a casual morning at the Santa Barbara Polo Fields.

From the Archives: Saturated Fall Flower Ideas

Kelly
October 02

I love fall and winter flowers and for this centerpiece I was inspired by bold red anenomes with their black centers.

Coupled with fall maple leaves, bittersweet, black dahlias and chocolate cosmos, I love the rich saturated colors paired with the darker, moodier flowers.

To make this arrangement you will need:

Supplies:

-floral shears

-floral foam

-container, I used this one from Jamali Garden

Flowers:

1 bunch maple leaves

1 bunch black dahlias

3 strands of bittersweet

1 bunch chocolate cosmos

2 bunches orange dahlia

2 bunches red anenomes

1 bunch frizzy orange/red tulips

1 bunch black scabiosa

Begin by placing the bittersweet and maple leaves first to establish shape. Then add in your larger blooms at different heights. Remember to turn your centerpiece periodically so you end up with a good shape from every angle. Layer your smaller flowers into the arrangement and ta da! You have a beautiful fall centerpiece!

Fashionable: Wearing a Little Black Dress in the Day

September 30

I love pairing a little black dress with boots. They’re are super comfortable and warm and work well as Santa Barbara gets (marginally) cooler.

This little black dress is from Free People. For the day time, I paired it with chambray (gotta where layers in SB), a gray fedora, and a beaded necklace my grandmother made.
