While fall may technically be here, the weather in Los Angeles is anything but fall-like (at least for someone who grew up in the northeast). I want to wear layers (or at least pants instead of anything light and flowy!), but with temperatures close to triple digits, that's just not going to work out. So without the ability to swap out my wardrobe without being sweaty and completely miserable, I had to change my approach to fall style.
I started thinking about accessories. Even small things can change up a look. Given our weather, scarves and jackets are out of the question, at least for now. And my jewelry remains pretty much the same year-round. But what I came to focus on is changing up my nail polish. Instead of lighter and brighter shades, I'm now gravitating towards darker hues.
Just this small change can make such a big difference. And really this is not just for those of us still in summer weather. This is perfect for those who don't want to buy a bunch of new things for the season or simply do not have the time or energy to do so. Changing up your nail color only takes a few minutes and you can even multitask and listen to a podcast or talk on the phone while doing it. Or just enjoy some peace and quiet.
