Only a Californian could feel the subtle signs we’ve been experiencing of Fall. A little darker in the morning, a little cooler in the evening and a few more leaves than usual on the ground. Of course it’s still gorgeous during the day, so to an outsider it may look like the endless summer that is California, but being a native I can safely say the change is coming. That means stocking up on a few items to keep me warm and toasty during those bitter 72 degree days and 60 degree nights. Insert rolling eyes from my New Yorker friends here. I picked up these cozy moccasins at a surf shop the other day and haven’t taken them off much since. Combined with these super soft Mother jeans it’s like walking around in sweats and slippers without having to look like it. A word about surf shops: I think they are such a great place to find fun, cozy and different clothing items at a great price point. Yes, I’m a Californian so I live in this stuff, but it’s also a great resource for sweaters, swimsuits and Uggs off-season, great unexpected vacation gifts and of course sweet smiles from cute surfer boy salespeople, not that I pay attention to that sort of thing-wink, wink.
