Some people just love the cold and grey weather. They love the layering and dressing in cold weather styles. Drinking hot cocoa and singing carols. Growing up in San Francisco, I realized that the cold and fog are not for me! I may wear mostly black and dark colors but warm weather just screams “happy” to me. I love dressing for summer, hitting the beach and having bonfires at night. Warm breezes and cold drinks! None of those things are possible in a Northern California winter. That is, unless you want to freeze.
Penelope Cruz is radiant (as always) in red for this gorgeous calendar shoot for Italian alcohol brand Campari, shot by photographer Kristian Schuller. The “Kiss Superstition Goodbye” theme places Ms. Cruz in various “unlucky” positions, laughing in the face of fable as she kneels down to say “hello” to a clowder of black cats, or tip-toes along a crack in the pavement. All the while she manages to spill not a drop of her cocktail. Now that’s a lady.

Being a straight up hoarding, layer obsessing, mismatched cat lady makes you appreciate minimalism. You know it isn’t for you but you still see the beauty in a perfectly executed outfit with only three pieces. THREE PIECES!!? Are you kidding me? I am jealous of your commitment to fit and fashion so much so that every outfit looks perfect without having to layer on sixty pieces before reaching some sort of satisfaction. Enter the Stylorectic blog. Eszter, the girl behind the blog, has some of my favorite sleek and structured style of late.
I love the clear sandals, the sheer top with a peek of neon and the super neutral shades of this outfit.
Rounding up the best of blogger shots for autumn was no easy task! We get so many great photos from our bloggers that it is often hard to choose! Since it is fall here in the states, I decided to choose photos with a warm color palette and plenty of layers. Take a look below!
On the left we have Monroe of Fashion Steele NYC wearing our Come on Over Pleated dress, which is a good fall layering piece. On the right we have Jessica of Jump Into Puddles in our Mink Pink Once A Cheetah sweater and Yoki Chelsea ankle boots. I love tights and shorts for the fall!
Katie of Skunkboy Creatures blog in our First In Line Black Striped Dress. Although this dress would be really cool year-round, adding burgundy tights makes it a perfect fit for the chilly months of the year!
Metallics are my favorite this fall! They make any outfit flirty and fun! This dress, with its classic cut, is perfect for all the holiday festivities and for adding a bit of fun during the drab winter months! Veronica of Bitter Sweet Colours blog makes our gold-flecked dress and patent heels look perfectly demure.
What trends are you excited about trying this fall??
If you didn’t already know, Izumi Bogen of Hybrid Hunter has some super rad style! Edgy and sort of vintage-inspired, Izumi always makes LuLu*s clothes look fab and effortlessly cool. I wanted to pull together all of her recent LuLu*s looks into one post so you can see just what I mean! Take a look below!
1 boot-3 ways! Izumi is rocking the Big Buddha Wendy Brown Multi Southwest Ankle Boots in three different outfits here! With tights or the perfect black jeggings, these southwestern print booties are the perfect finishing touch!
