Summer in the City

Los Angeles, CA

During the whacky-weather month of September I'm always a bit confused about how exactly to dress. It's warmer than it's been all year but everywhere I turn I see plush fall styles. And while I'd love to add on a layer like the magazines instruct, it just simply too hot. It was 100 degrees in LA yesterday!

So what should you wear during this transitional time? I say stick to basic, cross-seasonal pieces. These floral shorts are exactly that. I snagged them a couple of weeks ago (for $15) and knew that they would be great for both summer and fall.  Perfect for the office or an afternoon of shopping (which is where I wore them here) you can easily swap out my summery top for a sweater when things begin to cool off.

Say what?

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.

Say Whaaat??!


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!
