The Best of Free People Fall

fall free people / chasing kendall

Every year I wait for fall… not because of the pumpkin spice lattes (too cool for that 😉), not because of the pretty leaves and fall air (we don’t have that in SF 😉😉), not because of the snuggly couch time (too busy for that 😉😉😉) — just because of FALL FREE PEOPLE. 🙌😍

Don’t believe me? [check this out] – An impromptu, extreme bit of raw honesty which occurred at 9:20PM last night in “confidential” convo with a best friend. Finishing up this blog post this morning, I just decided to include it, cause I’m “extra.”😝  And in the spirit of honesty, I love all that👆 fall stuff – bring on the pumpkin spice! But but but, fall Free People still takes the cake for highlight of the season (I mean, check out my fun corduroys 🔝). 🍂 🍁💯

Per usual, they crushed this years coat game with fun puffers (no lie, I’ve had this one in my cart for 2 months 🙏🛍 ) and on-trend pea coats. They also have the best turtlenecks for layering, my personal fav style tip this time of year.

See below for more style tips and top 5 Free People fall picks!

For most, Free People might most closely resemble that free spirit, summer bohemian mentality, but for me, fall is everything and more. 🤗💕💕💕💕

Beer Booze

Beer Rec: Pumpkin Harvest Ale

The Facts
Style: Ale
ABV: 6.3%
Brewer: Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
Location: Half Moon Bay, CA

Happy Halloweeeeen!!! It’s finally starting to feel like fall, (just a little bit) so I figured why not help ring in the season with a fun pumpkin beer! ‘Tis the season doesn’t just apply to Christmas. 😏😏🍺🎃

TASTE TEST: Hmmm that’s more pumpkiny 🎃 (and bettter) than I thought it’d be! The smell is what really gets me though. Never smelt a beer that had such a strong smell before, like spices and fall…and pumpkin hehe. Nuts, sweet almond. Hints of apple pie. Minimal carbonation, light feel in the mouth.

Thank god it’s foggy outside so I don’t feel bad just curling up in a ball with a beer and binge watching Season 2 of Stranger Things. Quite literally, I haven’t moved my buns in 5 hours, and on episode 5.😬  Talk about a Sunday funday!! haha this is myyyyy kind of Sippin’ Sunday, with the best pumpkin beer I can ever remember! 🍺🤗🍺

Seasonally Conflicted

sf fashion blogger| Chasing Kendall

Currently: Caught between seasons

It’s a funny thing, SF (and being a fashion blogger in SF), because our seasons sometimes have their head on backwards. Most of the world dresses seasonally appropriate, while it feels like I’m in Australia having opposite seasons. I mean yesterday was 80 for god’s sake!!!

But maybe thats why I have a hibiscus on my thick sweater. Like is it warm or cold? Either way I got both covered! 👌🏼😜🌺 Or maybe its just because I love dressing like a grandpa. 🤓❤️ I mean have you ever see old people style?? They truly rock it. ZERO fucks given; I draw inspiration from that fearless, self confidence.

You can call it grandma style, but I love layering turtlenecks under things (chunky sweaters in this case). 😉  Layering in general brings a level of sophistication to the entire look, and also one of the easiest ways to look “casual chic” this fall. *Cough cough* an excuse to just be really snuggly and warm…😏

Shop turtlenecks perfect for layering:

Shop chunky snuggly fall sweaters:

Jeans but heavily ripped, a turtleneck but a short sleeved one, a sweater with a tropical flower…. there are ways to compromise. 😝 I may be caught between the seasons in this look, but my layer game is on point! 🙃

THAT SF SUMMER, WHO KNOWS…. It really just makes my hair frizz up! 🆘👇🏼😂😉👇🏼 // Shop my look at the end of this post

Booze Cocktails

The Bourbon Rosemary Smash Cocktail

bourbon rosemary lemon cocktail | chasingkendall

Fall is here, which means bring on the spices and the bourbon! I didn’t go full send on the fall cocktail just yet though.😏  Since the weather is still quite nice outside, I was feeling a more refreshing fall inspired drink, and the fresh lemon gives it just that! 🍋🥃😋

bourbon rosemary lemon cocktail | chasingkendall

Ingredients (for 1):

1.5oz bourbon (I used Russell’s Reserve) 🥃
1oz fresh lemon juice 🍋
.75oz dark amber maple syrup* 🍁
4 large sprigs of rosemary 🌿

Process:

  1. Crush 2 large sprigs of rosemary in your hand and add it to the shaker with ice.
  2. Add the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup (*depending on your lemons & tastebuds you may need to add a little more or less syrup) and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  3. Strain into a rocks glass with large cubes of ice and garnish with a rosemary sprig.

Very similar to a Bourbon Sour but the rosemary and maple give it a necessary fall update. 🍁😛 I think fall is my favorite season for cocktails. Things get a little stiffer, a bit more sophisticated and interesting. 😉

With everything unimaginably terrible going on in the world, sometimes it’s nice to take a moment for yourself. Learn a new recipe/skill, a little zen moment, if you will. That’s what making cocktails is for me….and then I just get drunk to forget all about the worst of it. 😝😝 But honestly, anyone else know how to better deal with all this catastrophe in the world?! 😫🙏🥃

🥃 + 🍋 + 🍁 + 🌿 = 😄 #SippinSunday

The Must-Have Graphic Tee

red-graphic-tee3-1

I’ve seen it, I’ve done it and now I’m blogging it. ✔️

White tees with red writing scrawled, embroidered or printed across the front have made their mark!  They’re everywhere and ohhhh so hot right now. Paired with white denim, a la Haim, while it’s still hot (yes, whatever it’s 75 degrees in October, so shoot me 🌞 ) or paired with black denim and a blazer to be right on-trend for fall, I’ve never seen a graphic tee actually elevate a look before…. until these babies came to market.  😏💯⚡️

They most definitely get the 🆒 stamp of approval. Plus, who doesn’t love a cool new tee?

Shop my favorite red slogan graphic tees:

In fact, I’m going to go put one on right now and head to work! XOXO ❤️🖤❤️

My Favorite Fall Collection

agjeans1

A couple months ago I was approached by AG Jeans for a collab (😁😁), I’ve loved the brand since high school but didn’t know much about their most recent designs. *Blog post not required,* but after 2 months of wearing their clothes 5/7 days a week, I NEED to spread the word about my new found obsession with the brand. 🙌💯

It’s less about chasing perfection and more about embracing authenticity.

I’ve never resonated with a collection more than the AG Jeans A/W ’17 Collection….never, ever. It was inspired by Young Hollywood in the 90s, one of my favorite fashion decades for the low-maintenance dressing and too-cool-to-GAF attitude. 😎🆒

I love that AG’s take on 90s revival has a modern twist. With silky slip dresses, small scale florals, and reworked denim they didn’t go “full grunge” on us.  There’s grit and glamour, masculine and feminine, chic but thrown together – the balance AG has on the 90s fashion tightrope is impeccable. 👌⚡️

Shop my favorite items from the collection:

My heart skipped a beat when I heard it described as “…sometimes tomboy, sometimes hyper-feminine, but always slightly undone.” I mean, I’ve never heard of anything more me.  AG Jeans’ A/W Collection has me hooked on the cheek like fish for sureeeee. 🎣😬
