We have concluded that there are 3 major ways to embrace Fall and simultaneously beat the heat.
1. Fall colors, obviously. See Monica's green/black and Michaela's navy/black combos. So not ss12.
2. Light clothing: Michaela's pants may be pants, but boy do they let in a breeze thanks to cotton. Meanwhile, Monica ditches trousers all together and rocks bare, but very fall, legs. We are both wearing T-Shirts, thick knitted sweaters are just not possible...yet.
3. Booties: Riding boots cut-in-half. Need we say more?
And there you have it, a California Fall through the eyes of two weather wimps.
