Falling with style

Even though my outfit for Thanksgiving was not very weather appropriate, I did bring a dress to wear on Friday and Saturday! We spent most of the day Friday on the beach, soaking up the vitamin D before heading back north for the rest of winter. The sweater proved to be a perfect addition in the evening. Once the sun went behind the horizon (at about 4:45 pm), the temperature dropped quite suddenly; it actually felt like fall!

Yesterday, we celebrated my grandpa’s 80th birthday with a big family party at my grandparents’ house! My grandma really went all out; we had an open bar, taco bar, dance floor, and live band. We had so much fun eating, drinking, dancing, singing, and hanging out with family members–some we haven’t seen in years and others we’ve never met (at least for my brother, cousins, and me).

I remixed my striped dress by layering this fun, asymmetrical cardigan over it. It was a cool night, so the cardigan was necessary and definitely appreciated! I brought a pretty necklace to wear in lieu of earrings (I like to give my ears a break after wearing the heavy ones from Friday). My mom did my eye makeup for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally–the last day of my remix chain! Today is also my last day in southern California; I’m not so excited to go back to the cold. (When I think about flying, I’m reminded of the quote that Woody says in Toy Story: “That wasn’tย flying! That was falling…with style.” Hence the title of the post. Also it’s fall, and I blog about my personal style, so I thought it was fitting in those ways, too. Haha.)

Do you recognize the jeans? I wore them on day 1 of my remix chain! I love the kind of “infinite loop” I created with my outfits. This outfit is perfect for travelling: slip-on shoes, comfy layers, long pants, and no belts or jewelry. Now I just hope I don’t have any problems leaving on maybe not the busiest travel day of the year, but one of the busiest!

P.S. Big thank you to my mom, who took my photos the past few days! ๐Ÿ™‚
