Almost as if someone flipped a switch, Autumn arrived in LA. We awoke on Saturday to the sound of rain which soon cleared, and the rest of the weekend we enjoyed the kind of cool-ish, crisp, clear weather that makes a sweater-boot-and-scarf-loving gal almost giddy.

Those charms you see on the bag are my lucky “Rooster” charms from the Chinese zodiac. I’m a Rooster, which means I partner well with Ox and Snake. There’s a third one on there too which looks like it might be a Dragon. I purchased the charms in Hong Kong, and have forgotten most of the quick explanation that was given to me by the Sales Associate. If anyone is knowledgeable about Chinese zodiac signs, please feel free to chime in. 🙂 They’re lovely hand-painted porcelain, and I’ll try to get a better closeup shot soon. The bit of orange/green/yellow you see peeking out from behind the bag is what remains of a braided yarn bracelet that a Buddhist monk placed on my wrist as part of a blessing when we visited the Big Buddha in Phuket. (More on this in a later post.)
I’m finding these dark grey denim jeans to be so versatile, and have been wearing them multiple times per week. They dress up with a pair of heels or down, as shown here.
What season is your favorite to dress for?
