Jean Skirt Days

When I'm out shopping,  usually if I'm picking between a pair of shorts or a skirt, for some reason, I always resonate with the shorts (high waisted ones to be exact). But it seems like the skater skirt rage that has been taking over the world this past year has found a way to slither into my heart and make me choose skirts more and more. But the jean version of the skater skirts is really where it's at this summer. Remember back in the day when everyone would wear those denim mini jean skirts out and to school? I probably had like 5 different versions that I would alternate between for my outfits. Well while those days may be behind me, I think I'm slowly reliving it through this new fad that's one of my must-haves and obsessions come this summer. Throw on a bandeau top and some floral sunnies and you're officially ready for a jean skirt summer.

Day Off

Heading into Memorial Day, there's nothing like taking advantage of the three day weekend by doing nothing but... hanging. And there's no more perfect way to do that than by getting comfy in your fave apparel. For me, that includes throwing on some Jordans (shoes and shirt turned tank) and a cute pair of denim shorts by J+CO. Getting ready for the beach and calm times ahead, one can't help but still be stylish while having some days off.

Summer On The Go

In a time where the weather in LA has changed from rainy and foggy days to scorching nights where it's 85 degrees at 11 PM, you need some clothes in your closet that easily adjust to the rapid changing temperatures and welcome and embrace the summer. I always love to have quick pieces that I can grab easily for a day out-- no-brainers that will allow you to adjust to the forecast changes and make you fit in well with what's going on around you. I used to buy all my purchases with a requirement in my head of needing to know what I could pair that piece with, with items already in my closet. But over the past few years, my purchasing mentality has changed-- buying items that I love on their own, and then leaving it to me later on to work backwards and configure pieces that worked well together. This shirt from H&M as well as these pink/peach shorts from Forever 21 that I had bought both randomly in hopes of being able to pair with items in the future both turned out to be great options and perfectly matching together. Throwing in my essential neon jewelry into the mix to complete the summer on the go ensemble, no one would expect that this super simple styling and outfit was whipped together within seconds.
