Crochet Daisies in Venice Beach

Monday, September 23, 2013

I decided to go simple today and just wear a mini crochet dress that I snagged at the LF sale the weekend before. I wore tan shorts underneath to give an optical illusion effect and so that the crocheted bits could be seen better. While my Balenciaga Cut Out boots were not my first choice for this outfit, I thought I should wear flats while I explored the canals at Venice Beach. I consider my style to be very beachy and boho, but I still want to maintain a tomboy vibe so I'm glad I wore the boots to give my outfit an edgier feel. I also brought along my favorite One Teaspoon cape, which is the least photogenic article of clothing in my closet. Sometimes it looks really cool in the wind, but somehow I never end up using the shots I'm wearing it for my outfit posts.

Serenity in the City

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I have always wanted to move to Orange County after I graduated college since I consider myself a beach city girl, but ever since I started working in Los Angeles, I have slowly become addicted to the city. There is just so much that goes on here, I feel like I would be missing out on a lot of opportunities if I moved away somewhere else. Spending time in LA has really helped me focus on my future and while there are a lot of distractions here, it is definitely the place I need to be right now.

More random chit chat next time!

2 Shades of Grey

Shop Akira Draped Bust Maxi Dress // Dolce Vita Jules Boots // Shop Akira Jackie Geo Stud Bag // Pura Vida Hipster Beanie // Low Luv X Erin Wasson Crescent Moon Pendant // H&M Rings // Brandy Melville Bralette

I have so many maxi dresses, but this one is easily my favorite plain one. Words that come to mind when I think of it- slinky, thick, soft, lush, and expensive. This one has two layers sewn together so I don't have to worry about people seeing my underwear selection in the sunlight.

As hot as it is in Southern California and as much as I want the weather to cool down, I'm a little scared of how fast winter is approaching. I love layers and I guess wearing shorts every day is getting a little old, but I fear the season of Uggs of jeans. Until then, it's slits and cut outs for me!
