Hello loves! 🙂

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Guess what? It finally rained in Los Angeles! 🙂 It was the first rainfall this autumn, and needless to say, I think we desperately need it due to California’s severe drought.

I also love rainy days because they make me want to just curl up with a good book and a blanket 🙂 Throw in some soft music and a cup of hot chocolate, and I’ve got the perfect autumn day!

On this particular rainy weekend, though, I was out and about because the rain was falling on and off throughout the day, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to shoot some autumn-themed outfits for you all! 🙂

To be prepared for any sudden showers, I dressed for the weather, wearing one of my newest finds – my olive green parka! 🙂 To give focus to the parka, I simply wore a long-sleeved t-shirt and my favorite jean leggings, accessorizing with a nude beanie and leather purse.

Parkas are an autumn-wardrobe-staple, since they’re relatively lightweight in comparison to coats, but at the same time, the longer length and the durability of the material makes it a perfect candidate for cooler, windier, and tougher weather conditions.

I generally like to pick parkas that have interesting button details because it can make an ordinary piece of outerwear look instantly chic.

I also pay attention to the folds of the collar, whether it’s low or high, since that can really add warmth to your outfit, as well as layering silhouettes 🙂

I make sure to look out for parkas that are made of softer material too since that makes the sleeves easier to roll up, which in turn, can help you create a lot more looks. If the weather’s a little warm, the sleeves can be rolled up so that the parka serves more as a statement piece, but if it gets a little chillier, the parka can be worn as is for warmth and functionality.

Although there are a lot of other color choices, olive green is a more versatile yet bold pop of color for the fall 🙂 Not only can it be worn on many different occasions, the green stands out nicely as the leaves slowly turn red and orange. And a big plus, no matter how many years olive green’s been around, it never seems to get old!

Paired with my trusty military-style boots, which is a shoe trend that seems to have been around for a few years already and is still going strong, this whole outfit emulates such a casually chic street style that’s effortless, comfortable, and functional for fall’s fluctuating weather conditions.
