The weather in Santa Barbara this past weekend was cool and crisp, but sunny and bright. A true California fall. While in Santa Barbara I was inspired by all of the Spanish architecture and design influences (particularly these painted tiles), so I paired these mustard-yellow chinos with this Ulterior Motive tie. The tie is a great staple fit for any season and can be thrown into almost any mix. I love the colors together… not only does it mimic the Spanish tile color scheme but throw on a tweed blazer and I’d be ready for prep school. This was a perfect outfit to do a little exploring while in town and even though there’s a tie involved, I left the shirt untucked to keep it somewhat relaxed and casual.
