FALL in love
Even as an LA dweller I still don a scarf whenever possible and drink the seasonal flavored lattes to put myself in the spirit of the season, but it just isn't the same. Note: most times I cannot do the aforementioned activities simultaneously any time before Thanksgiving; wearing a super warm scarf whilst drinking a hot festive beverage is grounds for unwelcome sweating.
Fashion-wise I suppose I shouldn't complain too much, however. I can still wear my cute boots and keep them cute, as they're not used for warmth or trekking through the elements. My outfits aren't always covered up by a big, bulky coat. And I can wear flip flops year-round, which is especially necessary when heading to the beach (I guess that aspect isn't so bad either).
This weekend my SoCal peeps and I are having a fall party and are participating in one of the best pastimes during this time of year, no matter where you live - watching college football. While rooting for our Cougs we will be drinking (cold) seasonal ales and dining on autumn-inspired dishes. Our attire will most likely be sundresses, not sweatshirts and perhaps we'll take a walk along the ocean after our feast.
It imagine seems as if I have acclimated somewhat.....
