Never Fall in Southern California

I’ve lived in SoCal my entire life. We primarily have 2 seasons – Summer and Winter. It’s either hot or it’s cold.  And by cold, I mean low of about 50 during the day.  On my Instagram I currently see lots of beautiful trees and apple picking, scarves, and hats.  We’re still sporting summer gear in the Dell house.  Jon has always wanted to live somewhere with 4 seasons so we can have our kids experience a winter white Christmas and rain on less sporadic basis.

With Aubrey starting preschool this week, I’m paying more attention to the outfits I see on the other tiny tots on my Instagram feed.  I love seeing the little girls with colored tights under skirts or dresses.  Before she was born, I stocked up on tights.  And by stocked up, I mean I didn’t get much use because it was too hot to wear them when she fit in them.  But I can still dream, right?  I visited Gymboree’s site – they have such cute things.  Aubrey got a complete outfit for her birthday last year which will fit her now.  It was 24 months.  She has worn the zipped hoodie a few times but I believe she might fit in the other stuff now.

This year’s fall items are SO adorable.

I like that the leggings scream fall, but the fox skort doesn’t claim a season.  And, if you haven’t seen it yet, Google What Does the Fox Say.  It’s hilarious.

Another item that I’ve been wanting to purchase for Aubrey is a denim jacket.  She can easily transition a lot of her current dresses into fall with the addition of one.  I’d probably go with a larger size so she can wear it in the spring since it’s still pretty cool in the morning for when she’s at preschool.
