IRO Aubrey Mesh Inset Tweed Jacket, James Perse Relaxed V-Neck, Zara denim cutoffs, and Givenchy Suede Sheath Boots.
Two weeks ago, I headed out west for a little birthday celebration (mine) and a wedding. I started my trip with a first time visit to San Francisco, California and eventually made my way down to the wedding location, gorgeous Cambria, California. Prior to the trip, I had no familiarity with Northern California. I almost exclusively went to visit friends in San Diego and Los Angeles. I almost made the same choice again but thankfully, tried something new.
Above, some images shot at an incredibly beautiful beach in Cambria (one portion of the beach was further down the coastline). The Pacific Ocean was colder than I anticipated and brought in icy waters and winds. Fortunately, I packed some new fall essentials, like the above IRO jacket. It was a birthday gift and a well-received one at that! I'd had my eye on it for quite some time at Intermix; the jacket was an exclusive collaboration between IRO x Intermix and was completely sold out. A structured jacket with strong shoulders will win me over every time.
I'm sure you're thinking, "she's wearing suede boots on a sunny beach?" Please don't let the abundant amount of sunshine fool you; it was barely over 50 degrees Fahrenheit! My Givenchy Suede Sheath boots were perfect; knee-high, warm and comfortable. I wore them several times during the trip without any discomfort (worth the investment, if you can get over repairs from time-to-time on the shark tooth closure).
More images to come from my incredible trip, from sea lions to selfies at some of San Francisco's most scenic locations. It was a beautiful experience and I can't wait to share it with all of you.
