When we think of Fall we think the leaves changing colors, pumpkin everything, apple cider and maybe some apple picking. We begin to pack up the bright colors of Spring/Summer and pull out the warm earth tones to set the tone.
For me living in California we don't have a real seasons its just sort of hot all year. So I try to pretend we have seasons and dress accordingly. So well the rest of the country is in a coat we will be in saltwaters and dresses. But with the change of the season no need to put away the bright colors.
When deciding what to do I always ask one of the girls what purse do you want. And when they pick I make an outfit around that. Sometimes it brings a challenge because I just can't see a clear outfit. So I went to my girls closet and pulled pieces to compile something bright but cozy because Brooklyn decided pink is her choice today.

Want to highlight a few of the small businesses I used from Instagram.
Carly Megan Children's Clothing is manufactured and ethically made in Los Angeles. The brand is a simple minimalist design that can be incorporated into everyday wear. I find her pieces are a great staple in the closet. Good for layering in Fall/Winter which is a must. Her Fall Collection titled "The Frontier" capsule is too good for all those winter adventures headed your way.
Leia Roux is a handmade shop in Southern California. Andie is the person behind the brand and makes great soft sole shoeless for kids. She is now dabbling into wardrobe and its a great shop for the essentials in your children's closet. Be sure to check her shop tomorrow 11/13 for a release on this cozy faux fur cowl scarf and few other pieces.
Fancy Free Finery is this little handmade wool-blend felt flower shop. I stumbled upon them in early summer and not sure how I didn't know about Katie sooner. My daughters absolutely love the single flower crown and wear them on a daily basis. Her holiday collection is now live and include some great colors with berries!! Did you know Katie ships from New Hampshire which is my favorite state!
Be sure to check out these shops they have some great people behind them. And remember to shop small this Holiday Season!
