Here in beautiful California you can see the beginnings of fall start to metamorphasize. In the morning, it's cold & dewy. The snails are making their way across the stairs. Watch your step or you'll kill 'em all. At night the sun sets early & it's pitch black by 7 p.m. There are few leaves on the ground. You may need a cardigan once this week. This is how you know it's the beginning of fall in Southern California.
The start of autumn means you need enough clothing to stay cozy but enough to take off in case it gets too warm. Today was one of those days where layering was useful. Yes, I'm wearing a crop top. I took note from my post on how to wear a crop top in the fall. All you need is a little bit of layering. Same goes for shorts. I'm not ready to give them up because I hate wearing jeans.
Ganesh -- the character on my shirt -- is the Hindu god of wisdom, knowledge, & new beginnings. He's an interesting fellow with a rich history & cool symbolism. Every day is a learning experience. We gain knowledge with each thing to do, make, achieve, complete.
Can I talk about how impressed I am with these photos? My boyfriend is my photographer (thx bb). He's new to taking photos of clothes & I'm new to modeling them. We have gotten better at working together over time. I'm happy I don't look terribly awkward when posing anymore. Only partially awkward. Yippy! :p
I love leggings during fall & winter. They aren't as thin & fragile as tights. I'm too rambunctious to keep my tights in pristine condition. They end up with runs after a couple wears. Leggings are more sturdy. They can put up with my climbing trees & spilling beers & sitting on rocks.
