Day & Night

Culver City, CA


Today I am keeping things easy, quick and casual. 

In an effort to shake it up a bit, I strayed away from my usual lighter, brighter look and went with a black and gray pairing.  I finally gave the trendy lace-up top a try and paired it with some go-to trouser pants. The result? A flirty look that works well for both day and night.  A casual day at the office, happy hour, a lunch with friends-- it works for all three!  

Have a great weekend everyone!

I’m heading back to work today after a whirlwind weekend away.  I sunbathed, attended a beautiful oceanside wedding, and spent my days indulging in seafood with friends and family. Needless to say, getting back to the office today has been a bit of a struggle. To ease my way into reality, I’ve decided to dress like I’m still on vacation with this fun, casual look.

I stumbled into these printed pants from H&M a few weeks ago. They were $10 and as cozy as pj’s so I, of course, grabbed them.  While this look here is very bold and casual, if styled with pumps and a nude blouse, you can easily pull off an outfit that’s well-suited for the office.  This ensemble is certainly a bit different for me and while I usually gravitate towards the classic, more polished pieces, every once in a while I like to let my hair down and try something new.

Comfy, stylish and perfectly professional-- trouser pants really have it all! They’re undeniably feminine and about as classic as the beloved Annie Hall.  While it wasn’t exactly easy for me to make the transition from my go-to skinnies to the newer, silkier cuts that have made their way onto the scene, I feel like I’ve finally figured out how to make them my own.

These high-waisted maroon trousers are from Forever 21’s Contemporary line. They’re silky soft and pleated, which makes for a really flattering silhouette. I paired them with a flowy lilac top because I think the colors balance really nicely. What I love most about these pants, however, is the cropped ankles. It really shows off a great pair of shoes and helps to elongate your legs. With that in mind, I chose to wear these stunning new Coach sandals. They are a great ivory color so they pair well with just about everything.

I love this breezy, sophisticated look for spring.  How do you guys like to style your favorite pair of trousers? 

This lookout is located just a few blocks from my office. It’s a great little escape that we frequent from time to time.  There are baseball fields, hiking trails, dog parks and running paths but mostly we go there for the views. It’s really breathtaking and this week, I needed a refreshing break. I love this shoot because Danny, my coworker, (and incredibly talented photographer) was able to capture exactly how we were feeling.  Sometimes to stay grounded, all you need is a little bit of air.
