Fall is one season where I switch all my blacks to browns before the coldness of winter sets in. The color fits in so easily with the warmth of the trees and leaves, while still being a dark enough neutral to ground an outfit, especially one that’s mixing prints like this. I found these mules by Two24 by Ariat at Zappos, a new-to-me brand that’s established itself in equestrian culture and heritage. Familiar with Secretariat? That’s where the name Ariat comes in. The inspiration is clear in the silver bit detailing on these mules, as well as the sensibility in the sturdy soles hat support them. They really add instant class and sophistication to this cozy weekend look. Plus, like every order I get from Zappos—free one-day shipping. Perfect for when I need something to arrive in time for a trip!

Do you ever read the “About” page of a new brand you discover? The way the world of clothing revolves around fast fashion these days, it’s pretty common for sites that carry inexpensive, trendy pieces not to have an “about” page at all. Why would they want to articulate just what it is they do? “We make it easy and cheap for you to fit in with everyone else—buy more, more, more!” No one wants to hear that. When you do find a brand whose ethos aligns with yours, it certainly makes you feel good to shop there, and I feel that way about Arno Cooperative. Not only are they sufficiently edgy enough to fit in with the trendiest brands out there today, but they are a women-founded company who practice slow, ethical fashion and put their people first.

Between that and my recent discovery that Reformation is all about sustainability, not just unique and adorable clothes, I felt great wearing this outfit despite its simplicity. Doing my best to live out the saying “quality over quantity.”

The title of this blog post is essentially an oxymoron. As much as I love visiting our neighboring coastal city down south, autumn is the time I’m ready to curl up on the couch with tea and a good book. But, whether I’m doing that in Los Angeles or Seattle, you can be sure I’ll be wearing my new pieces from Rails while doing it. I love that they’re California casual with just a touch of European sophistication and sensibility. Shop more of my favorite pieces below!
