For those of you who may not be aware, my love for LA is insurmountable and forever growing. Each time I visit, I fall more and more in love with this place. The air is different, the people are genuinely nice and the warmer weather that exists, even with winter approaching, is a major plus. I recently visited during the Thanksgiving holiday and decided to do an LA edition on the blog. The style of dress will definitely be different when looking at ensembles for the City of Angels versus the Big Apple. Known for having a more laid back vibe and chill atmosphere, this can be noticed in the pieces chosen for my LA trip. You don’t really have to overthink it. Simply a flannel or bomber jacket with nice jeans seems very fitting for the LA vibe. Pictured here, I went with a cool bomber I purchased in New Orleans at Garb Boutique back in November. Living in NY, I thought I was going to have to wait until spring to wear it but luckily I didn’t. I paired the bomber with an over-sized Calvin Klein tee from Urban Outfitters, black denim from Old Navy and my favorite adidas. Comfy and stylish all in the same. Normally I have jam packed days in LA, trying to soak it all in within the 5-day span, so comfort is key. Check out more pics below and be sure to check back for other LA posts soon to come.
Own the Day. These 3 simple words mean so much and definitely represent my motto in life. Designed by Brooklyn-based company WCIBF, the white Champion sweatshirt with the black writing compliments my denim dad hat so well. I think I’m officially obsessed with the new dad hat trend but that’s okay. Urban Outfitters made it so easy once they made this ‘Babe’ hat. There was no second guessing the purchase of this. I’m also wearing the oh so popular NMDs, which can be seen in the other pictures below. Be sure to ‘Own It’! Each and everyday we have 24 hours to make something happen that we want to happen. Let’s do this!
Nike hosted AirMax Con during 3/24-3/26 in which they showcased all Air Max and their influence on the sneaker culture and footwear industry over the years. This was a pretty epic event, especially if you are into sneakers. They were a number of reputable people there including Mr. Flawless, a custom jewelry designer and Matt Senna, who’s craft includes casting and bronzing sneakers. Kith made a statement by offering Kith Treats creatively named to correlate with the Air Max theme. If you wanted to get a nice touch up on your sneakers, Jason Markk had a team there to get your shoes back spotless using their custom cleaning solution which can pretty much remove any scuffs or dirt from your shoes. Trust me; I saw this firsthand. Of course you could buy sneakers or make a custom pair to add your own flair to a new set of kicks. I happen to like the Air Max 95′ and the Air Max Thea myself. Check out some of the things I was able to see at the event below.
Living in New York, the main thing that I have come to focus on is being comfortable. A lot of my clothes are not that casual but I’ve learned I do not have to compromise my look . It’s perfectly fine to incorporate sneakers and still be quite stylish. Here I kept it pretty simple with a black turtleneck, faux fur vest and faux leather pants paired with the Jordan 11’s. Now this is when chic meets street.
