The Tiger Who Came to Town

It’s 95 degrees in LA today, and I couldn’t be more ready for summer! Today’s outfit started out lazy: I just threw on a v-neck tee (Alternative Apparel–highly reccomend!) and shorts, to stay cool. Then came the necklaces…then the bracelets…and then the shoes.

It’s not my most posh look–it’s more like a simple outfit with a dressed-up twist.

But that’s what’s so fun about style! I love building my outfits and experimenting with my looks :)

Because people are already asking me about my necklaces: the one with the little kids kissing is from a flea market, and the longer one is vintage–those aren’t my initials haha!

Sidenote: These are my sandals from last summer–the sandal trend for this summer is unequivocally the Birkenstock.

Here’s how the cycle goes: Monday mornings suck, so you wind up going out Monday night as a pick-me-up, but then Tuesday morning ends up being even worse than Monday!

As per the cycle, I went out with some FIDM friends last night to celebrate our survival of “Hell Week” (aka, finals week…)

I wore my H&M silk blouse that you’ve all seen me wear a million times—hey, a girl’s gotta have a favorite! I paired it with a nude t-shirt bra, so it wouldn’t be see-through. And I topped it off with a sparkly statement necklace from Karen Michelle Boutique.

Then, I tied the look together with my new baby: a vintage, gold-sparkle mini skirt! I found it at a vintage flea market, with the tags cut out–so who honestly knows if it’s really vintage or just from Forever21….haha! But I don’t really care, I feel like a flapper in it either way.

My shoes are a simple, staple pair of BCBG’s. They’re not too big, by the way, the back of the shoes are shaped like that purposefully. Short Girl Tip: nude/beige heels make your legs look miles long.

Oh, and I didn’t do my hair. Why? Because it was Monday, and who can be bothered with a blowdryer on a Monday?!

City Safari

I swear all my best finds are from H&M–like this fantastic safari dress. I love it so much, and it was only $49 (no longer available.) I’m surrounded by expensive designer pieces on a daily basis, but when it comes to my personal style, the price tag has never mattered. I have a hard time shopping in some fast-fashion brick-and-mortar stores (too overwhelming,) but why not take advantage of their affordable prices by shopping online?

What’s the difference between “military” and “safari”? Honestly, everyone has their own way of differentiating, but my industry contacts said that there isn’t really a difference. I couldn’t decide which of the two trends this dress fit into better, so I dubbed it the “safari dress” simply because it sounded good in the title.

This safari/military trend should be kept with warmer neutral tones (i.e. colors such as beige and brown) and gold jewelry as opposed to silver. When properly kept with warm neutrals, this trend can also make you look live you’ve got a good tan–and who doesn’t want that?
