Guest Post: The Daily Dani

This week, I'm road-tripping home to Pennsylvania with Ben and our kitties. I plan to relax, spend time with friends and family, and drink lots of cheap beer. I'll be taking a break from blogging while I'm gone, but, lucky for you, I have some fabulous guest bloggers lined up! If you miss me too much, follow along on Twitter

Hey there, chill air & perfume readers! I'm Dani from The Daily Dani! I post daily outfit photos, weekly blogger features, and an occasional bit of celeb style! I'm pretty excited to be babysitting Hannah's blog while she's off on her little vacay!

Truth be told, I get super jealous every time I head over here and see Hannah's adorable outfits and stunning scenery! Boston seems to have the most perfect weather! Over here in Southern California, it's been wavering between the high 80s and low 100s. YES, I SAID 100S! IN OCTOBER! It's disgusting! I've been longing for Autumn weather, for changing leaves, and for Fall fashion! Lately, I've been stuck wearing shorter hems and sleeveless pieces. I don't even know how I've even been able to bear wearing close-toed shoes!

Here are some of the warm weather looks I've been sporting lately...

{Outfit Details: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5}
Honestly, I'm so ready for OUTERWEAR! Even though I can't throw on my pea coat, military coat, or denim jacket, it's not stopping me from daydreaming about them! I put together some outfits ideas for you all to check out - I'm sure some of you have the pleasure of temperatures below 80.

A pea coat is such a classic staple, not to mention so easy to transition from Fall to Winter! I think when you go with a classic, it's easy to take it all the way. Classic stripes, a dark corduroy skinny, and some very special loafers! Go with traditional styles and silhouettes, but throw in fun twists - like pops of color and edgy studs!

A military coat (especially one with leather details) is so menswear-inspired that I think it always requires a contrast of femininity! A dainty lace dress is the perfect balance to such a tough piece! Pile on the funky jewelry and a fun purse, make it cold-weather compatible with some tights, and pump up the volume with some ultra-vampy booties, and you are rocking this military trend!

A denim jacket is a necessary staple in every wardrobe! It is the perfect topper for any outfit, from a sundress to a classic pant, or to a very au-courant denim-on-denim look! I, personally, love a denim jacket with some plaid, and I always do plaid with a little Native American mixed in! If it's a particularly brisk Autumn day, why not throw on a light scarf and cute knit hat? Some people say less is more... I say, the limit does not exist!

I hope the look I put together have inspired you all to revamp your Fall outerwear pieces! Have you been trying out your own Fall looks? Leave me a comment to send me in the direction of your posts so I can be inspired by you, too! (Oh, and be super jealous of your Fall weather!)

Hannah, even though I wish I were on vacation, too, (I swear I could have stowed away in your suitcase...) I hope you're having a most fabulous time! Hurry back!

Thanks for having me! Come say hey over at The Daily Dani, and enjoy a (hopefully) chilly, beautiful fall!
