Backpack from SoleSociety // Chuck Taylor Core Hi

I remember the anxiety that came with the planning the first day back to school- the Lisa Frank supplies, the latest Jansport backpack color and the most stress riddled dilemma...what to wear! 
It wasn't until my Sophomore year that I had to even worry about this, since I attended private school up until that point and had to wear a uniform (something I would soon miss after the frenzy of having to stay afloat with the fads and trends in public school).
However, little did I know, my personal style back in the day would now be a staying trend not only pegged for Back to School fashion! (at least that is what I tell myself)
Iconically, I have stuck to certain style staples throughout the years- a leather biker jacket, denim with a white tee and last but certainly not least....Chuck Taylors (that of which recently received a fabulous makeover of the original style!)
Without spending an arm and a leg on the looks for back to school, there still needed to be money left for the Lisa Frank pencils don't forget, there was always a budget. But aside from the budget, there was the importance of the label (unfortunately) So this season, even though I personally am not going back to school, I styled my iconic wardrobe with an updated twist and on a budget with the help of my friends over at Zappos! A perfect destination for getting the labels we love at a better price!

Fall Styles- What to Wear During the Transition

I was excited to partner with Le Jolie for this shoot especially since we were able to shoot at the famous downtown bike garage and local hangout, The Chun. They were kind enough to let me invade their space as well as their vehicles.
Fall is just around the corner, after we get out of this heat wave in Los Angeles that is ushering in three digit temperatures. However, I put together a few styles with the help of the crew at Le Jolie for  perfect Fall transition looks!
While you are waiting out the weather for Fall wardrobe, keep it simple by layering basics and playing with fabric you normally would not wear in Summer. The easiest way to cheat a 'Fall Style' look is to incorporate neutrals into your mix.
Keep the accessories bold but minimal. Fall is all about hats, so get creative and integrate a few of these into your ensemble before Fall is full-fledged. I also have taken keen to bold sunglasses for Fall.
Just because the temperatures are dropping (soon to be), doesn't mean the sun stops shinning. I recently invested in a pair of bold frames from NastyGal and Wildfox. Both offer a decent selection as well as an array of prices.
