L.A. OOTD 1 | FAIRFAX & MELROSE

 









New Look -  Black Tassel Front Shopper

I am so amazingly happy to show you all the first outfit from my L.A. trip last week. I've been a bit blue from being back in the awfully shit Welsh weather, but I've finally got round to going through the insane amount of photos that I took throughout my little California adventure - I definitely got a bit trigger happy...

Both myself and my boyfriend were pretty surprised at how warm it is over there - on this day it hit 28 degrees Celsius, and we spent the day both exploring the Fashion Districts in West Hollywood whilst also chasing the shade. It definitely came down to a big compromise between style and comfort in this situation. I ended up pretty much living in my Vans Old Skool's for the entire trip, so I could run around and explore without having to worry about sore feet - yaaas!

As I do burn pretty easily, this LYDC x Lipsy dress was perfect for keeping me covered while the light material was so comfortably breathable. Plus, have you seen the shape? The skater skirt was a massive tick for me, but it was a hell yes once I noticed the sleeves. This is a great understated way to jump on the Flared Sleeve trend without fully committing - and I love it. Throw on some ultra-black cat eye sunnies and a trusty tassel detail bag and hey presto, instant L.A. chic.

How would you dress up/down for that L.A. cool style?
