Fall Style Trends - September

Fall Style

While it's still beach weather here in Manhattan Beach, I can sense a Fall crispness in the air, really I can! (Or maybe it's all the football & pumpkin spice lattes I've been indulging in lately.) I've gathered up some Fall finds, including this cozy Banana Republic sweater that I've practically been living in! And if you're looking for a show that you can stay home & binge watch to, I highly recommend HBO's The Night Of, an 8 part crime drama series, so good!!

5 Ways to Display Your Art Prints in Your Home or Office


If you've been on Pinterest lately, you've probably noticed that gallery walls are all the rage right now! HERE ARE 5 chic & affordable ways to display your art prints, including my favorites the bulldog clips & skeleton clips. (See below for where to purchase the hardware.)

Where to Purchase Materials for Hanging Your Wall Art:

Here's a round-up of materials! Target is a great place for washi tape & clipboards, be sure to check the 'dollar bins' near the front entrance. Urban Outfitters online also has as great selection of wooden dowels & hangers. Click through for the links. 

Travel Style: Manhattan Beach

Coral, grey, midnight blue, grey, seaglass... This could be my favorite color combo yet! When in Manhattan Beach, do as the locals do & wake up early for a workout by the beach. Run along the water's edge (try Manhattan pier to Hermosa pier, 3 miles round trip), head to a yoga class at the Green Yogi or Beach House Yoga, or bike along the strand and see if you can spot a some a few AVP beach volleyball pros practicing. Reward yourself after with a latte at Two Guns (located on the MB pier & up on PCH) and splurge on an almond croissant, baked on-site while you were still in bed.
