My Summer Lookbook

Summer is finally here and let me tell you, it is HOT in Los Angeles. The other day I got in my car only to BURN myself on the leather seats and then again on the metal details. Ouch!

All weather-related complaining aside though, Summer is my favorite season for SO many reasons. A few of them being: the beach. rosé. having rosé during the day. having rosé during the day on the beach... basically a lot of rosé and a lot of beach... Okay, you get the picture.

As I go about my day, I'll notice a few trends that really stick out to me. So far, Summer in LA has brought these 3 looks to the top of my list as "Must-Haves", for their effortless vibe and comfortable demeanor. I'm always looking for ways to make it look like I put in more effort than I actually did, especially when it comes to getting ready. So, I came up with a couple "short cuts" (no pun intended) to use when putting together an outfit.


Why? The girly-girl dress in the middle of summer in LA on it's own comes across as cliche. Not to mention, BARE. It's a skimpy spaghetti strap dress that barely reaches mid-thigh. Throw on a light denim jacket and tennis shoes- and BAM! Total comfort while still looking put together. You've got a flirty dress on, but the rest of your outfit is understated, striking the perfect balance between dolled up and super casual.


Why? Embroidered denim jackets are very much IN right now. I'm seeing them everywhere. Literally everywhere. There's actually one outside my window as I type. See? They're everywhere. But in all seriousness, they're everywhere for good reason! They look good, they're interesting, and almost everyone has their own variation of one. I like to do denim on denim because it's summer and we can get away with that right now. Enjoy it while it lasts.


Why? So, the whole "athleisure" concept is nothing new, but I think it's important to note it here. Running shorts or leggings worn with a fitted t-shirt and your favorite hat from the best school (cough, USC) gives you a look that says "Yes, I'm running errands. No, I won't be working out. BUT, if I have to race you to the checkout line I WILL win".

I hope these little short cut/style formulas are helpful! If you're like me and dread putting together a new outfit everyday, give these a try. What are your go-to outfits for summer?
