Something I have noticed about Southern California is that when the weather report says one thing, the day could decide it feels completely different. Which makes it almost impossible to dress appropriately for the day. In the morning, it could be gloomy and cold and ugly and by 2pm, it is beautiful beach-weather that makes you just want to sit outside all day. But then, once you spend some time in the sun, it warms up super quick. You end up seeing random people dressed like they live in completely different climates all in the same place.
So what is a girl to wear? Layers. And you don’t look ridiculous doing it, because there is no one standard for how people should be dressing. In the dead of summer in Vegas, you expect to see a lot of skin walking around everywhere. In So. Cal., it’s not entirely uncommon to see some skin, some sweaters, some boots or even some scarves all on the same day - if not within 15 minutes of it all.
On a questionable day that turned out to be a gorgeous spring day, I was feeling very… floral. It is the start of spring, after all! But as I was going through my closet, I realized that I am so over floral. I think I just overplayed it throughout the winter (while I was wishing it was spring) that I had no floral left to bust out that was not boring. (Yes, floral CAN get boring…) So I decided that skulls would be a suitable substitute. (Why not?) I am currently obsessed with my new skull scarf that I really wish I could wear it every day. It inspires me to mix different colors and completely rock it with pieces that have been hiding in my closet. It is definitely a statement piece.
As for the rest of this outfit? I pulled out an oldie but goodie from last summer with these Sam Edelman sandals… I am just as much in love with them now as I was the day I bought them.
|Hello, beauties ;)|
And of course, we cannot forget the arm party that came along for the ride…
