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

Little Red Romper
The Style Sauce// Genevieve Liebscher urban outfitters red romper street style Venice Beach

It's officially Summer in Venice Beach, which means it's hot and everyone is hitting the beaches. While I love Summer the most, it's sometimes hard to find things that are comfortable in the warm weather but still pulled together. What I've noticed is that I usually reach for a romper like the one I'm wearing here. I must have at least 20 rompers. They're flattering in that they accentuate the waist. They're easy because you only need to pull on the one piece and you're done- no fussing with separates! They're comfortable and will keep you cool in even the warmest of weather, especially when they're strappy and open-backed like this one is. Lastly, you can almost always dress them up or down! On the weekends, I live in a romper like this one. During the day I'll pair with a cute sandal, and by night I'll wear a heeled bootie for dinner and drinks with friends. Needless to say, rompers and Summer go together like peas and carrots. (Yes- that was Forrest Gump reference)

This particular little red number happens to also be on sale at Urban Outfitters, and an absolute steal at just $40! Pair with a pair of round sunnies and a little brown bootie and you'll be set for any Sunday Funday during warmer months.

Check this one out, and shop some of my other favorite onesies below for all of your Summer-ing by the beach.
