Moving from NYC to LA has definitely required some major adjustments. After landing the perfect place, finding a fulfilling job and trying to build a new network you still have something very vital to think about in your day to day; that something being style. I never want to compromise my style no matter where I live but I can say living in LA, you lean more towards cute and casual. I found myself completely overdressed during my early visits to LA for like a nice outing or dinner because I was so used to the NY way of life. Here you can simply wear a plain tee, biker jacket over the arm as a complimenting accessory or actually wear it once the night falls with nice booties and you’re all set. Heels aren’t a must here in LA (thank goodness)
I say all that to say, I’ve adding a ton of tees to my everyday wardrobe. Simplicity is key. A nice tee with boyfriend or slim jeans and a fresh pair of vans can be worn Sunday-Monday and I’m loving it. The look below showcases a Mondo Taco tee I grabbed from Goodwill for $1 and light washed jeans I snagged from Uniqlo for $9. To lighten the look a bit, I wore classic neon yellow Van’s. I thought this complimented well with the light denim and added a pop of color for a casual, spring look. LA, I’m still learning and adjusting to the vibes here. One thing for sure I am definitely becoming more aligned with comfy looks. Be on the lookout for more comfy, casual looks from this citygal 😊
I love love love the holidays. From the décor to the carols to the butter cookies with egg nog. Count me in! Not to forget the great festive looks you get to create as well during the holiday season. Fuzzy sweaters are always a good idea for a nice, festive look. Pictured here, I have a silver $5 H&M gem I purchased during the Black Friday promos. I mean fuzziness screams “it’s the holidays” and I liked the fact it was a bit over-sized so I could pair it with a fitted jean. I also recently ventured off in search for new denim. I felt as if I needed a fresh start and lucked up at Zara’s.
To my surprise I could fit some of their tapered skinny jeans. The light denim paired well with the silver so I decided to rock these versus a darker denim. I originally pictured me wearing this sweater with black but I’m glad I opted for a lighter denim. Okay, my next obsession is the rose gold Steve Madden pumps I’m wearing here. I fell in love with these when I first saw them at Nordstrom’s and decided then I had to own them. I went online to check out reviews regarding comfort and size comparisons and here we have it. My new prized possession. Silver and gold always compliments each other nicely when I think of interior design or fashion so I thought why not rose gold too. The picture-perfect Christmas tree on Rodeo Drive made for the best festive backdrop, don’t you think? Happy Holidays and enjoy time with your family and friends. Check out more from my festive look.
