This was a last minute, had five minutes to pull something together before rushing out the door type of look. Yes, I will openly confess that I love nothing more than to look glam and stylish, but everyone has those days when a great pair of boyfriend cut jeans and a flowy lace top is the perfect combination for a casual day look!

In this case, I threw on my favorite Seven for All Mankind boyfriend cut jeans, a pink Topshop quarter length lace crop top, silver bejeweled statement ShoeDazzle heels (yes, they are that amazing that I had to blog about them AGAIN) and my navy snakeskin Elie Tahari tote that I adore. This bag goes with everything and I will use any excuse to incorporate the color navy into my wardrobe!

It’s funny how different neighborhoods in Los Angeles have such an immense influence on my wardrobe choices. That is what I love about Los Angeles-the diversity and how I can head to Santa Monica and throw on something casual like this outfit and feel effortlessly and subtly chic or I can wander around my neighborhood of West Hollywood and feel inclined to dress trendier and maybe incorporate some leather, denim overalls or a pair of “out-there” sunglasses.

I love this outfit mainly because of it’s comfort but also because loose fitted boyfriend cut jeans are so sexy on any girls body because it gives off this “I don’t give a shit” type of vibe that guys are instantly attracted to. It’s as if these types of jeans give off a burst of confidence that everyone around you can see, feel and secretly envy.

I picked up these IVI sunglasses at the gifting suite at the Nylon Young Hollywood Event and I absolutely adore them as they really compliment the boyish feel I was going for with this outfit. When I initially spotted these sunglasses I instantly thought “surfer chic,” and when I researched about the brand further I found they are exactly that! They are super trendy, radical and sleek-I’m obsessed! You can find them here:

Have so much to shoot this weekend and am incredibly excited about it. More to come but until next time…Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! Take a load off…
