That ’70s Vibe.

That ’70s Vibe.

Totally feeling that 70s vibe with these culottes.  I have to give my boyfriend credit for these ones, he pushed me to try them on because they reminded him of a circus tent.  Or, to be more specific, it reminded him of the circus tent on the American Horror Story billboards all over town.  I’m not really sure how I should have taken that, or what you should do with that information now, but either way I left with them.  Sometimes it just works okay? Any way, I loved the juxtaposed bright blue with the light blush tone of the sweater, which was then all tied in with the stripes of the pants.  Again, sometimes it just works, right?  To really jab the 70s vibe in I went with clogs with wooden heels, AND THEN… I also threw in a wood ring that, I’m not going to lie, reminds me a little of wood paneling, but in the best of ways.  It all just flows, from one piece to the next!  Plus, it’s comfortable as all get-out, so that kind of just cancels out any doubt.

Ice Cream.

Ice Cream.

Sooooo… the Portland based ice cream company, Salt & Straw, opened a location in LA.  Can you say bad news?  I can’t because it’s the best news, despite what Los Angeles’ waistlines might say.  With crazy flavors that you just have to try out (Avocado & Strawberry Sherbet, Tomato Water & Ojai Olive Oil Sherbet, and Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese), to more classic ice cream flavors (Chocolate Gooey Brownie and Single Origin Amadeas Vanilla), their ice cream is seriously THE BEST.  No, this isn’t a sponsered post and I wasn’t gifted anything, I just loooooooooove their ice cream and feel it is my duty to spread the word! On to the real story here though, or at least the reason you probably come to OTK, outfits and not ice cream.  This dress is an instant classic!  Why?  Dresses like these are perfect for pairing with something that you REALLY want to stand out.  With this outfit it was my BOUNDla wood necklace that I wanted people to be able to see, in all of it’s angular glory.  Here is my process from beginning to end: It starts with: the necklace. Next:  I had been dying to wear the necklace for some time, but I wanted an outfit that would really just serve as a background to it.  It pairs perfectly with tees, sweatshirts and mostly anything, but I really wanted it to pop.  My mom (Love you mom!) sent me this dress and I instantly knew they were made for each other!  The higher neckline of the dress makes the shape of the necklace really stand on...
