The Coachella festival just wrapped up this weekend and if you haven’t already noticed, the coverage of what people are wearing is almost as important as who is performing. I wasn’t one of the lucky attendees, but given that the weather in LA this weekend was equally sunny as in Indio, I decided to dress as if I was there. I love this vintage top that my mom gave me. The lovely embroidery is all done in beads. I figured it’s a perfect stand out piece with a pair of cutoffs and ankle boots.
This is an impromptu shoot of what I wore to work yesterday. There’s nothing “in the moment” about the look. It’s just something I put together for a day on the go. I think these go-to looks tell more about our personal style than the ones that are more thought out and “new”. Given that both my shirt and watch are from the men’s section, it’s safe to say that my go-to style is a mix of masculine and feminine.
Had this been a solid colored pencil skirt, this look would have still been perfectly fine. But it’s details like a neon side-stripe and an exposed zipper that elevate it to a whole new level.
This look includes the oldest and the newest items in my closet. I’ve had this vintage tweet jacket for years. The leather effect shorts are new. I like how they complement each other. The jacket dresses up the shorts, and the shorts dress down the jacket. It’s a perfect juxtaposition of old and new.
I put this look together from top down, wanting to wear this Targa Trophy hat that a friend gave me. Special thanks to my colleague, Austin for taking the photos during our lunch break. Austin has a great food blog called Random Meal of the Day. Warning: It will make you very hungry.
I loved these pants as soon as I saw them on ASOS. Once again, it has the elements I love – black and white with a sporty side stripe. These pants will make more appearances on the blog, that’s for sure. For the début, I decided to pair them with a pop of color. The weather is starting to get really warm in Los Angeles, so this was my last change to wear this tissue turtleneck.
