Fall 16 Wardrobe Staple: The Silk Bomber
The Style Sauce satin bomber street style fashion blogger

If you're like me, you've already been planning your Fall wardrobe and you're SO ready to break it out (coat season just get here already!). I always comb the magazines and my usual online publications early to know what's coming- and it's super fun for me to pick out the trends from the shows at NYFW, LFW, PFW, and MFW that I personally think will be huge for the next year (I'm like almost ALWAYS right, btw. ;)) It seems that every August I go through this end of Summer in between season struggle, especially since it's always the hottest in Los Angeles August, September, and October. Enter "transition pieces". This is always a big fashion challenge because it can be so weird to mix Summer things with Fall pieces that are heavy fabrics like velvet, leather, and cashmere. 

Here's where the silk bomber jacket comes in. It's already every where for Summer, but plan on this piece being even bigger for Fall. The cherry on the top of goodness with this wardrobe staple is the fact that it's light weight enough to layer over a flowy dress for the chic-est end of Summer look, yet you'll still be able to wear this bad boy over a sweater with a pair of your favorite jeans and a boot when it's freezing (aka 60 degrees in L.A., ha). 

Another reason I love this trend is that it's something that all body shapes and skin tones look good in. It really is universally approachable. Below I'm picking out for you some of my favorites for all budgets. What do you think of the satin bomber trend? Let me know in the comments below.

Where to find: 7 of L.A.'s Best Walls
The Style Sauce Abbot Kinney Rainbow Street Style

I get a lot of questions about my blog, but today I'm addressing one of the most popular ones which is "Where do you take your pictures?". To start, finding locations for photos can be BRUTAL. For anyone who's ever worked in the production or entertainment industry, they can tell you that there is entire job descriptions assigned to "location scouting".  Basically, it's somebody's entire job in real life to simply find great places to shoot things at- and it's super important! While I live in Venice, it's obviously easiest for me to shoot my blog photos near my house, but I start to run out of ideas and spots. Here I'm spilling the beans with you about some of my favorite walls in Los Angeles for all of the bloggers, aspiring bloggers, photographers, and pretty much anyone coming to L.A. that wants to take some pictures with cool backgrounds.

Consider it your cheat sheet to an Instagram-worthy fashionable day in Los Angeles.

1+2) Are the rainbow and black and white walls featured below.

As these walls have just been painted in the past month or so and don't have a real name yet, they're sure to have one soon as they're a great place to shoot. I love that one side is rainbow and the other a stark contrast of black and white. Two locations in one! Caution- you have to walk through some sort of private dirt parking lot to get to it, and it says "Private Property". If you get arrested, definitely do not say The Style Sauce sent you ;)  

Address: 209 Broadway Street Venice, CA 90291

3) The Paul Smith Wall

Ok, so this is the insanely popular wall that is pink and literally everyone has taken photos on it from Sincerely Jules to Ohh Couture (two of my favorite bloggers, btw). Anyways, where is it? Well, you can find it on Melrose on the side of the Paul Smith store. Go forth and fulfill all your pink fantasies.

Address: 8221 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood

 

 4) #LOVEWALL #BLEEDINGHEARTS

This one is right off of Abbot Kinney, so naturally I've taken a photo in front of it, but let me tell you it's QUITE popular! I was literally fighting off tourists for a spot in front of it which was incredibly comical to my crew and I when we were trying to get a snap. It's right on the side of what is now Greenleaf Venice.

Address: 1239 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291

5) "Made in L.A." Wall

If you truly want to tell people you're made in L.A.- hit up this increasingly popular wall in West Hollywood. 

Address: 8025 Melrose Ave. (at N Laurel Avenue), West Hollywood

 

6) Shepard Fairey's District La Brea Mural

At the corner of La Brea and 2nd Street where the parking lies for the hip District La Brea Shopping district, there's an amazing and colorful Shepard Fairey mural. Part of it says "High Time" and then there's the word Peace and what looks like lotus flowers on a bright pink background. Check it out:

7) UniWolfCheetah

This combination of a unicorn wolf and cheetah is also poised just behind Abbot Kinney, and perhaps the most famous fashion blogger of them all - Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad- has a rendition of it in her very own home. Of course it needed to make the list. 

Address: 1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA

A Weekend With Mom
Mother's Day The Style Sauce Fashion Blog on the Venice Canals

Mother's Day is one of those Holidays that I think is one of the most important. It celebrates the women who have given us life, and there's really nothing I could think of that is more important than that. While my Mom lives just an hour flight away in Palo Alto, CA, it's been 5 years since she's come down to visit me in Los Angeles. Despite this, I somehow convinced her to come down for Mother's Day this year- and I was unbelieveably excited when she actually said yes! We had an awesome weekend in L.A. There's really nothing like girl time with your mom. We basically just shopped, ate, got manicures, and all of the things in between. Of course, the apple didn't fall far from the tree, and Mom taught me all the saucin' I needed to know from a young age. It's fun playing dress up with her, even now. Thank you Mom for giving me life and coming to spend an unforgettable weekend with me, I hope you'll come to L.A. more often. 

We took some photos near my home on the Venice Canals before our night out on Saturday- pictured here is three generations, my Mom, Me, and my daughter Ladybug (yes, I know she's a dog, but she is literally my child so it counts ok??) 

How did you all celebrate Mother's Day? Whether your Mom is close or far away I'd love to hear how others spent the day with their Moms, "Moms", daughters, or celebrating womanhood in general.. This stuff really gets to me, I'm one of those people that cry during Visa commercials. I'd say don't tell anyone but I just put it on my blog, so there goes my big I'm not sensitive facade! Who was I fooling anyways? ;)

Check out our Mother's Day style and let me know what you think! You can shop a lot of what we're wearing in this post in the gallery below.

While I love this pink hat from Lack of Color Australia with almost anything, it's especially cute with a flirty little black wrap dress and heeled boot. Perfect to take you from day to night.

Mom's sleeveless tunic dress is the perfect length and fit to dress up or down. We found it at a little boutique and I convinced to buy it knowing she'd be able to wear it with so much!
