Checking in with more Holiday attire featuring this gorgeous emerald green lace up velvet bodysuit. I decided to throw on a pair of high waisted wide leg trousers for a nice balance and a look you can wear to an office party event or to your Holiday family dinner. I really love having a comfortable yet edgy look that really plays into the roots of my style.

The Trouser Short

trousershortheader

As the weather continues to fluctuate through Southern California I am given the difficult task of dressing for both warm and overcast weather. Being within the confines of my work Biodome and it’s also fluctuating weather patterns has also proven difficult, where do I draw the line? I took a risk today by wearing a pair of floral printed trouser shorts. If the fact that I am wearing shorts is at all brought up I can at least mention their material gives them the “corporate” portion while the length gives them the “casual” side. If you couldn’t tell already, I am in love with printed bottoms. I believe they are something every girl (or guy) should indulge themselves in. Even if you are not a fan of prints, buy a pair of fun solid colored bottoms to spice up some of your everyday blouses.

P.S. I recently purchased this wonderful black blouse from the Conscious Collection at H&M. The material has the perfect weight to help it flow onto my body yet maintain it’s structure which has been seemingly difficult to find for me lately.

On another side note, I’m in dire need of a pedicure, I apologize for the naked toes! Happy Friday!

I am in love with these new floral pants I purchased from Brandy Melville. They are so fun and feminine with a little 70s twist. Their clothes really are effortless and give you that beach bum vibe. I could probably sleep in their clothes they are so damn comfortable. Nick and I visited the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach this weekend (his first time) and afterward took a little walk down the pier. It was cloudy and overcast compared to the scorcher the day before but it made it a lot easier to walk around outside.

H&M always catches me by surprise at the most random times. I went in looking for a mesh jersey top and came out with this acid washed print skater dress. This was one of those pieces that I didn’t have to contemplate buying. The length and fit are perfect for work and pairing it with my H&M leather jacket and GoJane booties let me add a little edge. I love skater dresses and their ability to make you feel sexy yet girly at the same time. I attribute it to the whole tight on top and flowy on bottom. I would highly recommend grabbing one for an evening out during the summer months.

Nothing like finding great spots to shoot at right by your house :). Got these pants during a visit to Topshop in Vegas and am extremely happy in their versatility to be dressed up or down. Perfect for work and play. Happy Sunday!

I found these French Connection pants in my closet the other day. I almost forgot why I bought them a few years back. I love mixing baggy with slim fits, normally I stick to oversized tees and tanks with leggings but I couldn’t resist wearing these. I mixed them with my favorite American Apparel bodysuit, H&M leather jacket, and Jeffrey Campbell’s. Needless to say I was the tallest person in the office that day.
