Sorry for the picture overload, but I mean… Come on! How awesome are these pictures? This white building with it’s white shades pulled down in the windows was such a perfect backdrop to make my dress and shoes pop! It always makes me so happy when I find the perfect backdrop to an outfit. It’s so much harder said than done! Finding colored walls around Los Angeles isn’t so much a problem, nor finding white walls. The problem that you run across around here is the graffiti OR the painted over graffiti that was done in a slightly different shade than the original color. Every time I see someone painting a building somewhere I am like QUICK! Shoot time! Gotta get a shoot in before some little turd decides whatever he has to say is better than a beautifuly pristine paint job. Does this all make me sound old?
ANYWAY… The walls would be nothing without the outfits right? Right. I love that this outfit plays on black and white with the best pops of color to throw it off a bit. This mesh dress from A Common Space has the most perfect tropical print! I’m calling it sporty-tourist-core. It’s a thing, totally. Slap on a denim vest with none other than a hula girl sittin’ pretty right on the back and I think we’ve got one killer outfit on our hands. Disagree? Well, I can’t help you because you are wrong.
I thought the florals would be complimented oh-so-nicely with bright pink sneakers, and pulled the stripes from the collar of the dress down through the striped socks. It all just worked out too perfectly if you ask me. Pop on a killer bag and hit the road jack! You’re ready for the best sport playing, touristy vacation of your life!
