Fall has finally arrived in Los Angeles. We were all complaining just a few weeks ago about how blazing hot it was (100-plus degree days for weeks on end!), but now we’ve taken out our coats and scarves. Autumn was just a little delayed this year but now the temperature is in the 60s to low 70s Fahrenheit. Perfect for sweaters and layers.
When it comes to sweaters, I can’t resist rainbow prints. I’ve accumulated a collection from various sources and this one is new. I like the slightly retro look for it- the rainbow stripes are in more muted tones and this chunky knit looks kind of 70s-ish to me.
When thinking about where to take photos of this outfit, Ross suggested the Angeles National Forest. We live in the central part of Los Angeles, but the Angeles National Forest is only about 30 minutes away with its curvy, winding road and breathtaking views of the LA basin. I’ve gone camping here before, and going up in elevation on the Angeles Crest Highway is both kind of thrilling and scary (it’s a pretty narrow road!).
We didn’t go too far into the forest, as we didn’t have a lot of time before it got too dark, so we drove up to an elevation of about 3,000 feet and pulled off to a turnout that had good views of the mountains around us. It was a quiet day and the temperature dropped even further since we were at a higher elevation. Good thing I brought a warm scarf and hat!
I think this is the first time I’ve posted an outfit with pants; I rarely wear jeans except on the weekends when running errands. I think I just needed to find a pair of jeans that fit me well. I actually only had ONE pair, and they were so stretched out and fit poorly. I finally forced myself to go buy new jeans, and surprisingly this “always skinny” style from the Gap fits me really well! It’s high-waisted, which took a little to get used to, but I like them.
