ASOS jeans, boots, cardigan, and hat, Kate Spade bag, H&M tee
Can you guess where these photos were shot? Big surprise, Golden Gate Park of course. Although the weather here in California is in the 60-70s, I wore a fall appropriate outfit. I threw on a slouchy army green cardigan for some warmth and black floppy hat for good measure. My white t-shirt, ripped jeans, black boots, and black bag are staples which you have seen way too many times on the blog. Thanks for visiting and have a great thanksgiving holiday! We are incredibly thankful for all your support here on Flying Neon Lights.

Weather in San Francisco has always been pretty strange; hence this post’s title. This fall foliage happened well into the winter season, but it is never too late to take fall photos! Amanda and I shot this post at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco; the fall colors were gorgeous and perfect for my warm layered outfit. I layered my hefty denim jacket over my grey hoodie and added a printed scarf to keep me warm. I balanced these colors with black jeans and black chelsea boots, and threw on a brown knapsack to hold my valuables. For those of you that have been following us, you probably know that this is not the first time we shot in Japanese Tea Garden. However, it is the first time we saw so much beautiful fall foliage there. Pictures don’t do it justice, but we tried!
Have a wonderful week,
ASOS jeans,bag, brogues, Banana Republic belt, Gap hat, Van Heusen top, Forever 21 jacket
Over the years, I’ve become dependent on certain items for the times I am unable to connote up an outfit. My fedora not only keeps me warm from incoming winter drafts, but also shields sun out of my face during this Fall period of transition. These boyfriend jeans, which I’d bought last year as a impulse buy, have served me well in both the LA heat and SF fog. Finally, I finished the outfit with a chiffon top and brogues which transition well from the workplace to everyday wear.
Tiffany and I shot these photos while rooftop hunting in San Francisco. This background is one of the many views showcased on top of SF’s financial buildings. Let me know if you want the location details!

dress (Cotton On), cardigan (H&M), jacket (thrifted), scarf (gift), boots (Macy’s)
This holiday weekend, Amanda and I decided to photoshoot at Golden Gate Park – no surprise! However, what surprised us was the mist spraying in front of the De Young Museum’s garden, which led to an impromptu shoot! I’m pretty big on layering, so I wore a simple black cotton dress and layered it with a knit cardigan and vintage jacket. The chilly weather permitted for tights with tall brown boots, and I topped off my outfit with a printed scarf. Hope ya’ll have a fantastic week, thanks for visiting! 🙂
sweater and skirt (H&M), booties (Macy’s)
This week’s outfit features a simple printed sweater top paired with a black circle skirt and black booties. The sweater is a perfect compliment to the skirt for the fall weather and is very versatile for events, bordering on casual and semi-formal. We shot this comfy outfit by the pillars in the Music Concourse; I highly recommend this sight-seeing place if you ever come to SF! Have a great week!

Here is our guest blogger Leanna’s anticipated second post, which we shot on a bright and colorful rooftop garden in downtown San Francisco! Stay tuned for more guest bloggers and creative outfits!
“Sf is notorious for 65 degree summers and breezy days so I always have to be strategic in what I wear – something light enough for the sun but warm enough for the wind. Today I picked out a plain white tee with an accent pocket and paired it with simple black leggings. To pull the look together, I chose black ankle booties and threw on some silver necklaces to add some bling. You can never go wrong with the simple, clean, black and white look. It’s classy – but without the effort. Thanks for checking in and I hope y’all are enjoying the rest of your summer!”

This week, Amanda and I headed over to our 2nd go-to spot at Turtle Hill. As winter is approaching, I decided to keep warm by layering my blue flannel over my grey hoodie and v-neck t-shirt. I kept my outfit casual by wearing leggings, brown boots, and a beanie. Funny enough, my outfit went along with my surroundings to give a lumberjack-esque look. To our delight, Amanda and I made it right on time to take advantage of the spectacular lighting and to try our hand at silhouette shots as the sun started to set. Once again, thanks for visiting, and I hope you guys have a fantastic week!
Ann Taylor skirt, Abercrombie boys flannel, Gap kids fedora, Old Navy jean jacket, Nike sneakers, ASOS Limit watch
Playing with an essential closet item, the pencil skirt, for this post today. This skirt from Ann Taylor is one of the more professional pieces I own, but I toned down the corporate(ness) by pairing it with a bunch of laid-back clothing items. Namely my super dirty Nike free runs and boys flannel shirt. The color combo of the flannel-musty green and blue- works perfectly with my oversized jean jacket. I finished off the look with my fedora and everyday watch.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Usual connotations of minimalism: monochromatic colors and negative space. For today’s post, I’m offering my interpretation of minimalism by featuring this photo taken in downtown Los Angeles. To me, minimalism not only entails muted black and whites, but also shape angles and interesting textures and layers. In this picture, the downtown buildings are all shapes and sizes; all arranged into beautiful, cascading layers. Thank you for visiting and hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
