Summer is my favorite so I’m always sad to see it end, but with new styles to dream about and the warm weather still lingering it makes it a little easier to say adiós! This weekend I went on a day trip down south to soak up some final summer rays. After surfing all day we went exploring in the fields and found some dreamy locations! This outfit was perfect for kicking off fall. I wore my graphic tee with some printed lace up shorts and a simple fedora that kept the sun off of me while adding to my “wild bohemian vibes.” While on paper it seems like a summer outfit, the dark colors gave it that autumn feel. Adding some black boots was the perfect way to transition this weekend getup into the new season. Put a feather in your hair and you’re ready to take on the fall season while keeping a little bit of summer with you all year long.

As we came closer to Labor Day, I found myself itching for an outdoor adventure. After all, September is the Monday of months because it marks the end of tan skin, perfect weather and pink sunsets…So I felt as if I had to go out with a bang! Of course, my whim of wanderlust lead me to Morro Bay—A seaside village just North of San Luis Obispo. It is an easy drive straight up the scenic Highway 1.

Just two hours north of Pichilemu is one of the most beautiful coastal cities in the world. Viña del Mar has the beach and surf culture wherever you look. Reñaca is a famous beach break where we spent most of our time surfing. During any time of day at Reñaca you will see all the best Chilean surfers in the line up. My dad was given the opportunity to coach the Chilean National Surf Team and give them some advice on being better competitors. It was awesome meeting all the Billabong Chile team riders and seeing how the brands we have here in the States have made such an impact in other beach communities all around the world. Besides the surfing, there are all kinds of fun cafes, stores, and sandy beaches to lay on all day long. I brought my new camo jacket that perfectly complimented my overalls and striped crop top. This outfit definitely made a statement when walking along the boardwalk and helped me stay warm while still looking “cool.” My scarf (pictured below) added the perfect pop of color to my outfit and was even an awesome beach blanket for me to relax on while watching all the guys surf heats out in the water… oh and did I mention that we saw a few penguins while surfing?!

I was so in love the vibrant and fun town of Pichilemu that I decided to extend my stay by few days. During this time I was able to explore the other stunning beaches and find more fun surf spots. While walking the dirt roads of Pichilemu I found some awesome places to enjoy a local bite and even some cafes that served tea with an ocean view. The weather along the Chilean coast this time of year is pretty chilly (pun intended!). Because of this, I had to leave the kimonos and shorts at home. Instead I had to find cute, stylish clothes versatile enough for a beach and surf trip in a cold climate. This thermal was perfect for keeping me warm, without comprising style. I threw on some boyfriend jeans and a beanie to complete the look. This outfit was darling while also practical enough for discovering new cafes, stores, and views of my favorite beaches in Pichilemu.
