The Streets of La Jolla

The Streets of La Jolla

The great thing about winter in southern California is that the temperature never truly drops below 50 degrees, which means that all my cold-weather attire is more like fall (or even spring) style for everyone else. Last weekend I had a mini weekend-getaway to San Diego, where I spent the days exploring the lovely shops and cafés of La Jolla. I was dying to wear my new over-the-knee boots that I received for Christmas, so I specifically chose an outfit where I could show them off. I paired them with a suede camel skirt so that the shoes would stand out against my legs. I chose to keep the rest of the outfit all neutral so that the look wouldn’t seem too flashy. And I opted for a black faux-leather jacket and my burgundy floppy hat to give the outfit some extra texture.

I loved this look because it was super easy to throw together, but looked so stylish on! I got lots of compliments, which always makes you feel nice :). It was the perfect weekend outfit that could easily transition from day to night. Plus, I had owned most of the pieces for quite some time now, which meant that I could utilize what was already in my closet to put it together! I’m all about reusable pieces, especially on a college budget!
