Surf in Paris with Layers.

Surf in Paris with Layers.

Just when I thought winter would never come… It’s frigid!  No, that’s totally an exaggeration.  My fingers are frigid, but it’s almost 60 degrees outside.  I know I shouldn’t be complaining because I know some of the country is ACTUALLY frigid right now, but I’m cold!  The only way to beat the weather in LA when it dips below the average temperature of 71 degrees?  Layers!  Layers are such an awesome way to experiment with shapes and patterns, which is absolutely my favorite thing in the world. Obviously. It’s actually kind of funny how this outfit came to be.  It started with the Surf in Paris t-shirt from Millimétré (see my other killer scores from them in this post), but I was a little cold and I wanted to put something under it to keep me warm, so on went a turtleneck dress. The dress was shorter and I knew I would want more coverage, so I put on the boots.  I was STILL cold, so I put this wool skirt on under the dress, and it kind of peeked out the bottom, which was cute, but I needed more!  So then I decided enough was enough, and I got back in bed. After warming up under a mound of blankets, I decided to give life a try again.  I definitely liked the skirt and the tee together, but this time I reached for a top that buttoned all the way up to cover my neck, plus added a little pattern.  On went the boots again, because of course, how could I not?  BUT I WAS STILL COLD.  Idea!  My...
Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

This REBEL wall!  And how perfect with this outfit?  I loved the blue wall as well, which was near the REBEL wall, for the detail shots.  I love when a wall just compliments the outfit so perfectly, it ends up making the entire shoot so much more fun.  It kind of set the mood for the whole thing, you know?  I was obviously on one because look at all of the faces!  I’m just so silly, I know.   The clothes though, let’s talk about those!  I was on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing while in New York.  Who am I kidding? I’m always on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing.  I was so in love with the idea of fringe on my pants and a little extra tassel (in a lot of a extra color), on my neck!  One bright blue & gold Poppy Lissiman choker comin’ right up!  I decided to keep the shirt black & white, to accentuate the choker, and gave extra pops with the red sunglasses and sneaky-sneaks.   These sneakers were such a go-to while running around the city.  So comfortable!  Plus, fringe is made for movin’ and shakin’, so you have to have comfy shoes to do just that.  Again, who am I kidding?  You have to have comfy shoes to do anything in my eyes.  Ain’t no body got time for heels!  Except for sometimes.  Alright, I’m talking myself into one massive hole here because we all know that if you hand me a cute heel, I’mma make it work.   Especially if they have tassels.    Top: The Fifth Label via BNKR // Shorts: Rachel Comey //...
Doing Ninja Pants in NYC.

Doing Ninja Pants in NYC.

 I love the random parks scattered throughout the city in New York.  The little patches of green grass are always begging you to go in and take a breath!  Although my infatuation with them may have a little to do with the fact that there is absolutely ZERO green grass in Los Angeles right now because of the drought…  Either way, take a breath I did, right in the middle of all of the bustle of Chelsea Piers.   So, what better outfit to roll around in the grass with than a tee and ninja pants?  My Lena Dunham Birthday Suit Tee nonetheless!  This tee from Clashist may have been worn one too many times while in New York.  It was perfect for slipping on under or over things when needed, all the while adding quite a bit of interest to anything I was wearing.  Have you guys seen all of the awesome tee’s from Clashist?  And not just shirts, they have some leggings, dresses, swimsuits, and a necklace that I think everyone should have, right here.   And the pants?  Oh the pants!  Also seen in LA Ninja Warrior Ep. 1, I love that I feel like I could take over the world in these pants!  Which frankly was why I decided to bring them along to NY.  You NEED to feel like you can do anything in New York because anything can come up!  The little bit of wind coming off of the water made them even more fun, either blowing them up so I had balloons for legs, or pulling them tight and whipping them around.  All...

High Waisted + Cabin 14

I’ve been super inspired by 70s styling lately.  I normally don’t like to go full on retro with  my outfits, but this one just felt so right all together.  Don’t you think?  This tee makes me feel like summer is here and I seriously can’t wait to wear it with some high waisted shorts.  Nothing says summer more to me than tee shirts and cut offs, it’s summer’s uniform!  But until summer days actually hit I’m digging theses jeans and a pair of clog boots to top it off.   I think the trick to pulling off outfits like this is attitude.  All the time I hear people saying ” I could never pull that off!”  As Henry Ford oh so wisely said, “Whether you think you can or you think can’t, you’re right.”  If it makes you feel good, do it!  On this day, this outfit made me feel good, so I went with it.  I’m not saying that I never think back on outfits and wonder how it possibly could have made me feel good, but you only live once, so have fun!  No outfit regrets over here!
