Fall Style Crush: Atlantic-Pacific

This title might be a touch misleading. Because, let’s be honest, Atlantic-Pacific is my style crush year around. Always polished & put together, always chic, always appropriate. I’ve admired her style since I first fell in love with fashion blogging.

And while her Summer street style is something amazing, I swoon over her Fall and Winter looks every year. She’s nothing short of perfection – From making knee-high socks look effortlessly stylish to the most gorgeous outerwear you can imagine to swoon-worthy handbags.

So keep scrolling for some of my favorite Fall/Winter looks from Atlantic-Pacific over the last few years to get you inspired for a stylish season.

There are oftentimes judgment associated with food choices – Whether you’re eyeing your friend’s second helping of Chinese food or wondering why your sister has chosen to eliminate gluten. Eating a primarily vegan, gluten-free diet meals that I spend a great deal of time explaining my choices, talking about what I can, and listening to men tell me to “go eat a steak.” When I saw Gena’s How To Date A Vegan Without Really Trying I was hooked, reading her boyfriend’s sweet words about being open & communicating with your partner about their diet really hit home.

I’m a long-time fan of cold showers, I do in fact take one every morning, so I loved learning a little background on the tradition – The James Bond Shower: A Shot of Cold Water for Health and Vitality.
