Dress It Up or Down

Most of the time, I am the person at the holiday parties that is way overdressed. I can’t help that I love clothes and dressing up! Life of an aspiring fashionista… For this year’s holiday party, I decided to mix it up a bit – dress it up on top, but dress it down on the bottom, or what my Grandma likes to call it “a fancy top with raggedy jeans!” haha. I obviously had to “shoulder” my jacket (tip: if all else fails, shoulder it), rock the shades, strap on the studded heels, and flash off my favorite Tannery LA bag to add a little bit more steeze to the outfit :)

Greetings from beautiful Spain!! This weekend, I opted for a simple chambray / floral skirt combo. This look is super comfortable, airy, and protects your shoulders from the sun when exploring a new city! I threw on a sequined cloth necklace for a little extra glam, and put my hair in a messy braid to avoid frizz from the nearby ocean breezes. I even wore my skirt backwards (gasp) for an edgier, zipper-in-front look. Simple, fun, and perfect for travel!

This week’s look:

◊ Skirt – Pink by Victoria’s Secret ◊
◊ Chambray – Nordstrom ◊
◊ Necklace – Forever 21 ◊
◊ Sunnies – Street vendor in Granada ◊
◊ Purse – Louis Vuitton ◊

Street Style: How to wear a chambray shirt!

Chambray shirts are all the rage now, so I couldn’t help but stop to photograph this girl on my way into work! She was so perfectly accessorized, with her brass heart pendant, casual white V-neck, and immaculately paired polkadot skirt + chambray! I loveee this look – the blue on blue is casual and looks super cute with her high brown boots.
