October in LA generally means summer temperatures won't drop off till around Halloween. In anticipation of another Autumn delayed, an upcoming trip to Portland was just what I needed to satiate my recurring need to keep cozy and bundled up. Along the way I partnered with Teva to bring you my rendition of the highly controversial socks & sandal combo. In a effort to give the outfit a sophisticated vibe I opted to dress them up with a wool kimono coat and sheer socks. By adding a slightly see through element I wanted to add a sort of refinement to the traditionally laidback trend. The result was a perfectly demure look that was just as clean as it was comfy.
