Breaking Rules - #UntamedStyle Linkup

In the words of Britney Spears..."Oops I did it again."  Yes I did it again, failed to post a link up on Friday. No #UntamedStyle Link Up and no outfit to share either. Lately my work outfits haven't been anything special or even cute.  When the weather is 90+ degrees in the fall what do you even wear.  I don't want to still be wearing summer clothes.  Mother Nature is messing with my style mojo and it's affecting my mood.  

OK maybe I am being a bit dramatic, but when you wake up to chilly mornings and then its scorching hot by lunch time.  This really messes with my wardrobe choices.  If I wear sandals, my feet will be cold all morning long.  If I wear boots by lunch time my feet are sweaty, wanting to be released and set free. Sweaters are great in the morning, by lunch time I want to rip it off and just wear a t-shirt!  Yes I know you are thinking, Hello Veronica just wear layers? Layers are great and essential part of dressing for the fall, especially in California.  However sometimes I really don't want to worry about transitioning my clothing all day long because of the weather.  Do you feel me?  I just want to get dressed in the morning in what ever is weather appropriate and remain in the same outfit all day long! The struggle is real people...Ok enough ranting about my fall style woes.  I am sure some of you east coast readers are probably rolling your eyes at me.  LOL 

Today lets break the rules on this link up.  Yes technically its Saturday, but hey this my blog and I do what I want!  Right!!!  Today instead of sharing my outfit I will feature my 5 favorite links from last week, which is something I do any way.  I do love seeing everyones outfits and get inspired every week to continue blogging, you give me great ideas for outfits! 

Here are 5 of my favorite looks from last weeks linkup.  

This is Rachel from Rachel the Hat.  I love this look, its speaks to me with the long floral dress and a bit of edge by adding the leather jacket.  She added the chocker and fringe bag, this outfit is made in boho chic heaven!  I can totally recreate this look with items in my closet.  Thanks Rachel for linking up and giving me style inspiration!
Anna Shirley from The Glam Adventure is wearing a very California fall appropriate outfit.  A shirt dress with bare legs is so doable for fall here. I love the print and colors of her dress, those shoes are pretty fab too.  Yes it may be late October, but you can still wear dresses with bare legs and sandals in California.  
Sheela from Sheela Writes is always one of my favorites. Each week I look forward to seeing her outfits on the linkup.  This outfit is totally fabulous and also just right for California fall weather. It gets a bit chilly in the morning and evenings, wearing a light bomber type jacket with a dress is perfect. You can still wear bare legs, but just in case wear booties to keep your feet warm.  Oh Sheela how I wish to find and recreate this outfit in plus size. Thanks you for always sharing fabulous looks and giving so much style inspiration as well!

Chichi from The Style Tune understands my struggles. She shares how to wear velvet when the weather is still warm! Velvet is such a beautiful fabric and really trending for fall. It's great for colder climates, but you can still rock it when its warm like Chichi did.  I love the color of her shirt dress, so rich and vibrant and those silvery shoes....amazing!! Another great style inspiration on how to dress for those warm fall days.  I guess I am not the only one having this style struggle! :)

Joi from In My Joi, is also a So. California girl and shares my fall fashion struggles. I think she figured out a good mix of fall and warm weather style. She looks fabulous in her cute sweater and pretty skirt. Can we take a moment to ooh and ahh at those sparkly shoes!!

  1. Veronica, he you are the boss :) You did it again and its okay. Puh 96 degrees in fall, I understand.
    These five ladys look amazing :)

  2. We've all been there with falling short on time in publishing a blog post and you're right, better late than sorry. Thanks for persevering and hosting anyway.


    1. Thank you for coming back every week to link. Means so much read these lovely comments and see the fabulous links! :)

  3. Veronica, you are da boss of this here blog. You set the rules, mah friend, and you decide when (and if) you want to post :) we're all falling behind anyway so you aren't alone :)

    Thank you, so much!!! For the feature :) that dress is cut really big, I'm wearing a Small, and it goes up to Large I believe. You could check out the link from my website? To see if the measurements work? xoxoxo

    1. Thank you Sheela, sometimes I am too hard on my self and need to chill out! I am going to check out that dress and measurements. Sometimes I do find non-plus items that fit! :)

  4. That's exactly what I say---my blog, my rules...especially when my husband tells me I'm making up words!!
    But I do feel your pain...that's exactly how it's been here in Denver lately. I keep saying the weather is bipolar---ha ha!
    And I don't mind dressing in layers...when I have time to figure it out and plan it---if I'm doing it last minutes---it makes it hard!!

    1. Jodie, isn't that the reason we started blogging. Making our own rules! :)

  5. Veronica, you rock no matter when you post! I am always falling behind in my own self-imposed schedule. In fact, I should be drafting a post for today but instead I am surfing around reading other blogs. But, like you said, it is my blog and I will do what I want when I want! And even though I am on the east coast, I feel you, my friend. I hate when I get dressed in the morning and need an entirely new outfit by midday. We get that kind of weather in early fall for about 3-4 weeks and it drives me insane! Hopefully, the California weather settles down by early December when I will be traveling there for SpyGirl's Blogger Meetup. I would hate to have to over pack due to finicky weather! Thanks for the link up and have a fab weekend!


    1. Oh great I want to go to the blogger meet up too. I hope to make it and meet you Shelbee! 😁

  6. I feel you on the heat situation, as it is the same here. We had about one week of actual cooler temps and then back to the oven again. As much as I try to stay consistent with my blog, if I need time off, I take it and do not feel the least bit guilty about it. This is for fun and if it doesn't feel like fun I know it's time to step away.

    1. Jennie, you are so right when it's not fun, it's not worth the time and energy. I do blog for fun and because I love fashion. When it becomes like a chore then I struggle to get inspired and dread doing it.

  7. seriously this struggle is real! don't know how to dress most days! Thanks for the inspo!

  8. Love these looks Cid & thank you very much for the feature!!! LA weather has most definitely been a challenge, I feel like I have to turn everything in my wardrobe upside down to determine what to wear from day to day :)

  9. Oh, and I forgot to share: I work secularly full-time plus blog my style- the struggle is real!I try to stick to a schedule, and take pictures of looks on the spot whenever possible. If not, I do them over on the weekend :) 2-3 posts are my goal weekly, but sometimes I'm just swamped, and can only manage 1... O_O
