Ok, I’m finally ready to admit it: I’m not in California anymore–and it’s COLD here! So I had to throw a sweater over this dress from Nasty Gal, even though I hadn’t originally planned to. I’ve had this sweater since high school, and it’s one of my favorites. I got it at a sample sale in the California Mart (CMC–where all the wholesale showrooms are), and the print is fantastic! I’m not usually into the whole high-low style, but the shape of this sweater is so perfect.
By now you all know about my “white blazer” trick (aka: throwing a blazer over your pajama shirt to fake a polished look.) This outfit shamelessly incorporates that tshirt-blazer combo with another added dichotomy: shredded jeans and dainty heels!
I just got these shoes from BCBG, and they are perfect with a formal dress or to polish up these jeans. Don’t you just love when you find something so effortlessly versatile?!
With this outfit I’m also exercising all three of my tips for looking super-fly: 1) Wear heels with your jeans, 2) Carry a fab bag, 3) Keep your sunglasses on at all times.
Seriously though, walking around Hollywood in this outfit totally made me feel like a celeb. Try out these tips and let me know how it goes!
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.
Can I be medically diagnosed with a Starbucks obsession? Actually, don’t answer that…
I was feeling a dairy-free low-cal drink this morning, so I grabbed a Lime Refresher. Yum!
I’m rocking a brown leather jacket over a plaid flannel to stay warm today. It’s a great combo for a laid-back, yet still stylish, vibe. This plaid shirt is probably the single most worn item in my entire closet (aside from my VS leggings…) I seriously wear it all the time. It’s great for layering–it can be worn open over a tshirt, or underneath a jacket like how I’m wearing it today. A plaid flannel also looks sick with a baggy beanie and combat boots!
This one is from Urban Outfitters. It’s the most amazing material ever–definitely one of my best purchases. And it’s still available!
We all know I’m obsessed with leather jackets, but a brown one is ideal! It’s unexpected, yet still completely versatile.
The lace-up suede booties are so last year, I know, but they’re comfortable and Jeremy likes them
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
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?
