an L.A. dream (part 1)

outfit 1 black maxi: James Perse racerback maxi dress, Old Navy denim jacket (sim here), Kooba bag, floral crown made by me
outfit 2 yellow dress: H&M neon yellow maxi dress, Big Buddha multicolored clutch
outfit 3 pink dress: Old Navy pleated maxi dress (also worn here), vintage belt, Vince Camuto heels, Ray Ban aviators, Kooba bag

Some snapshots from my weekend in L.A. for the Lucky Fabb conference! A floral crown and dyed pink hair tips were my look for the weekend. I made the floral crown specifically for the trip, inspired partly by miss Lana Del Rey and an extension of my signature flower headband look from 2 years ago. It seemed just so perfect for a spring fashion weekend spent in bohemian L.A. I so love any kind of hair accessory (remember these?). I dyed my hair (washes out) with this – it works better on true blond hair but I liked the subtle, pastel effect I got with my blondish balayaged tips.

Fun for the weekend included Saturday pool and beach time with gal pals Krystal and Natalie, a Sunday blogger brunch (aren’t we all so cute?!) at the Viceroy where we stayed, dinner at the awesomely delicious ‘pop up’ restaurant  Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing on Abbot Kinney in Venice (where we sat next to the insanely good-looking Ian Somerhalder which was exciting to me only because I am a huge Lost fan), playing L.A. dress-up for a cocktail party at the Kelly Wearstler boutique on Melrose, and a trip complete with outfit pics to Opening Ceremony. More pictures from the actual conference coming tomorrow and I promise I don’t wear another maxi dress, ha. The floral crown, however, does make a repeat appearance.

dress // pants

Aritzia sweater and tee shirt dress, Gap pink denim, Old Navy tassel earrings (I just bought them in a store, they are seemingly unavailable online), Covergirl Lip Perfection in ‘Divine’ lipstick

I’ve done it. I’ve brought it back. The dress over jeans look. You know, the one I was so into around 2003-2004 (must find you picture of 19th birthday dinner outfit…). But believe it or not, it’s kinda like, a trend again (I do not lie, see here, here and here see #3). It all comes back doesn’t it? This is my mild and timid version but someday soon I am thinking of trying to go full on pouf skirt over denim leggings. Hmm…. gotta find the perfect combo. For now, I leave you with this tunic tee shirt dress over denim look.

Say what you will about the tassel earring trend being soooo last season, when I saw these at Old Navy I said I gotta have um. They’re pretty great for like $8, yes? Especially in pretty cobalt blue.

And didn’t you hear? Matching your lipstick to your pants is the new matching your lipstick to your manicure. Get on it.

A dash of lemon yellow adds just the right amount of optimism to a January ensemble ♥ How adorable is this Old Navy striped midi skirt (came with a belt, and I removed it). A total score .
