{Fall Look Book} Purple Floral Denim

pants, sweater, bag: apricot lane, los altos
sandals: steve madden via nordstrom

If you've been around here before, you know I'm all about purple. And flowers. So why not throw them both into one look and call it a day? I think yes.  I'm dying to wear chunky sweaters like this more often, but the weather in Los Angeles just isn't having it.  Remember how I used to complain about the rain and having limited wardrobe options when I lived in Seattle?? {exhibit a} Today I want to take it all back and unpack my winter clothes, boots, and then cozy up in my favorite Starbucks on the corner of Queen Anne for the entire day.  This isn't to say I'm not loving my time here in LA, I think today I'm just missing my old stomping grounds, my sweet friends, and my secret love for falling asleep to the sound of rain instead of the sound of helicopters and firetrucks.  

Purple floral denim sort of makes up for all that, though. I mean, how can I be down when I love what I'm wearing?! My favorite cure to any weird funk: a cute outfit :) What's yours?
I'll be back tomorrow with a post about things I've learned since living in LA.

Have a great day!

PS. I'm starting a new little picture series on my Facebook Page! Each day I'll be posting my favorite room of the day over there for some mid-day inspiration and as a way to share my best findings with you. There's so many great spaces out there, I can't wait to dig up some pretties.  Hope to see you there and get your opinion on the spaces I post!
