My Style Challenge: LA Style

I know, I'm being lazy and just occasionally posting an outfit. But mayhaps we'll be seeing my style slowly change as I get all West Coastie!

So how does west coast style differ from east? Well, it's certainly brighter and more flowy. Even the grungers rock loose flannels or shredded, oversized tees. It's pretty much constantly Coachella here in LA.
While I don't really consider myself festival style, I can rock a glam watercolor dress and call it close enough! Dress and belt from Anthropologie, Hollywould for Target clutch, I can't remember where my shoes are from, and a ring bracelet from Scoop NYC.
Ring bracelets are definitely my "thing." Kinda like Regina George and hoop earrings.

PS Yes my arm muscles are almost cartoon-like...

My Style Challenge: New Kicks

I've remained steadfast again wearing Birekenstocks as fashion (though I actually have no issue with the shoes themselves). However, I have recently cracked and bought myself some ridiculously expensive sneakers that aren't for the gym!! I have to look LA now that I'm all SoCal!

I'm a fan of wearing sneakers with casual skirts. I actually had to buy this outfit when someone spilled pasta on my dress at work - not bad for running across the street to a little Venice boardwalk shop!

I'm wearing: LA Made tank, Vans skirt, Yes Style cardigan, Prada sneakers, Tom Ford sunnies and H&M belt. Jewelry includes a necklace from a tiny boutique in Wilmington and a McQ by Alexander McQueen bracelet from the Net-A-Porter sale.
To go along with my new LA life is a micro tattoo I got on a whim!! It's a heart emoticon as a cheeky nod to my digital life. Also you get a better look at my fun razor bracelet.
I usually don't wear sneakers much, but these have been a huge exception!
