Although the weather stays warm in Los Angeles up until the beginning to mid October, I like to slowly transition my summer style into fall. I don’t plan to try and create one or even two complete minimalist wardrobes this season. Designing and sharing a complete capsule wardrobe online as a blogger year after year was too much pressure. I explained my thoughts on why I believe this is in great detail here.
Since I made the decision to stop creating capsule wardrobes and just live, I have been loving the process of redefining my personal style.
I sold most of my clothing and have slowly been rebuilding my wardrobe with more thrifted and ethically made finds. I’ve actually been rotating the same six dresses all summer along with two skirts and a few tops. At some point I’ll probably add leggings and heavier sweaters to the mix for much needed warmth, but for now I’m good.
I’m in no rush to make things perfect which is especially surprising for me the perfectionist herself. After taking these photos, I couldn’t help but laugh since literally every piece (except my socks and jewelry) was purchased at different times from Crossroads Trading. Crossroads is one of my favorite consignment shops in the city.
I’ve been loving billowy flowing layers all summer with simple jewelry and other times statement pieces. I’ll probably keep this theme through the fall as long as it feels good. Even though this outfit is all neutrals, I have dreams of adding more plums and burnt oranges to my wardrobe. Time and luck will tell thrifting!
