Los Angeles, CA
It’s eighty degrees in February? I’ll take it!
Yes it’s summer in Los Angeles this week. The air is warm and everyone’s beginning to think of the lighter brighter days ahead. I’m soaking up these jacket-less evenings and breezy sun-kissed afternoon lunch breaks because although it’s never really cold here, this week has certainly felt like a treat.
Ok so I am actually laughing at myself as I type this because while yes it is great to have a bit of a heat wave here, I can’t help but acknowledge the fact that I have lost my sense of the seasons. My family and friends, who live back east, talk about snow and Arctic-like temps almost daily. It seems like every time I speak to them there is another blizzard! In fact, my sister informed me yesterday that her husband was quite literally skiing to work in the city of Boston.
Regardless of your current climate, spring is truly right around the corner (I swear!) and brightening your look is as easy as adding a vibrant color or flirty print!
Today, I attempted to make wardrobe mixing chic with this fiery floral and polka-dot combo. In the spirit of Valentines Day, I went with a look that is perfectly ladylike and ultra femme. This ruffled blouse tucks in nicely to a high-waisted skirt or fitted trouser pant and a bold red lip gives your look a playful final touch.
If you’re going for a casual afternoon soiree this V-Day, this is perfect. I have included some similar outfit ideas below for those of you in colder climates too!
