Vague

Nikki Dror

Leave it to the Cali Girl to still be wearing shorts in October…

But, I mean, I packed so many cute outfits that I haven’t been able to wear here, in New York, because it’s so cold! So on days when the thermometer gets up to 65, I’m like, “Ok, it’s basically warm enough for shorts.”

Strangers ask me if I’m cold, but I just smile and say, “I’m from California.” (I’m learning that it’s an acceptable excuse for a lot of my weirdness here.)

People around here aren’t that used to seeing this much skin in Fall, but I can’t say I really give a damn.

Babydoll Grunge

Yay! My photographer (and boyfriend) is back in Los Angeles for the summer–Now I can get back to regular outfit posts. Thanks, Jeremy!

As you’ve probably already realized, I really love creating a dichotomy within my daily looks. Today, for example, I’ve paired a lacy babydoll blouse with grungy leather booties.

I think that’s an important aspect to maintain in all my style endeavors: I don’t like to fully commit to any single theme, or else I feel like I’m wearing a costume. So yeah, I can wear the lacy blouse or the harsh booties–but, by not letting either one dictate my full look, my personal style can still shine through.

So go forth and explore fashion, dear reader, but never play a character–just be you!

Night to Day: Pajama Trend

b&w

As a girl who is always on-the-go, I’m constantly on the lookout for wardrobe pieces that can be worn “day-to-night.” In other words, I’ve hit the jackpot when I find a dress that can easily transition from a long day at work to a dinner date.

The pajama trend, however, seems to do the literal opposite: it goes from “night-to-day.”

This blouse is (no, seriously…) part of a silky pajama set–but I love wearing it out as a regular blouse.

Here, I’ve paired it with denim shorts to create an interesting blend of formal and casual (since the blouse isĀ silk,) and threw in a colorful pump to pull my black-and-white look together.

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.
