Hello Spring

What's more perfect for spring than a little floral frock?
I've been dreaming of beach days and dresses all week! For this post I'm bringing back some old favorites of mine, there's nothing like a classic that doesn't go out of style. I've had this Levi's jacket forever but I never get sick of it, perfect for adding a casual element to any outfit. This bag I bought years ago, The cognac color matches everything and the simple design makes it timeless.

Nude and Leopard

Since spring has started my need to wear black has definitely subsided. I've been loving these warm and neutral color palettes! I read somewhere recently that leopardprint was neutral, and I couldn't agree more matches with everything. Though spring has technically started it's still pretty cold in LA and I can't stop buying and cozy sweaters and dresses. This week in particular has actually been more chili than most of the winter!

Coach recently did a blogger campaign and sent me these shoes to try out. I haven't really worn Amy of their stuff for years except maybe a vintage bag, but I was pleasantly surprised with these shoes. They are super comfortable and really cute!

Winter Dress

During the winter one of my favorite outfit options is a long sleeve dress and tights. I loved how this dress was simple, but had unique touches like contrast paneling and great textured fabrics.This look is actually pretty comfortable but looks kinda fancy. And how fun are these mock thigh high tights? I think they add a little spice to any outfit.

LA love

So I haven't posted for weeks, probably the longest since I've started my blog. I've just been crazy busy along with starting my new design job! It's been great so far, I'm stoked on it. Our company is called Truly Madly Deeply and we're located in DTLA. We mostly design graphic tees exclusively for Urban Outfitters but we also design for Forever21 and Anthropologie. I can't wait to start showing you all my designs :)

I'm always up for supporting local brands, especially in the graphic tee world! I got this top from a rad Los Angeles based brand Daydreamer. I love the slouchy loose fit and the peplum ruffle adding a feminine touch. My jeans and necklace are also LA local brands Articles of Society & Love Nail Tree.

Street Smart

Decided one pair over overalls just wasn't enough. The thing I like about these ones is they fit on my waist and legs just like skinny jeans would unlike a lot of what else is out there right now.
A few of my friends recently commented that my style has been very "street" recently. One person even refered to me as "streetwear dani", haha. Anyways I was kinda horrified by this because I feel like "street" is synonymous with "ghetto". But there's no denying that fashion trends have strayed far from the girly and bohemian look that was so popular and gone more into a streetwear direction. I will admit I have been indulging in this casual urban look a bit too much lately and here's another example of it!

School girl skirt

 The plaid fad continues. Easily one of the hottest trends this winter, and oh boy have I overdone it!
But so has every other blogger I suppose. I've been really this classic sexy school girl look. It's funny I've talked to a few friends who grew up wearing a uniform to school and they can't bring themselves to wear a plaid skirt like this anymore! I usually try to avoid forever 21 due to it's awful quality, but I just fell in love with this skirt and figured it was such a fad item I'd only wear a hand full of times anyways. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite mesh & leather tops from For Love and Lemon's a rad brand out of LA that's just killing it right now.

Winter Florals

 This Dress! It's a Reformation X Urban Collaboration. I love love everything reformation puts out. This is one of those statement pieces you just have to own. Long gathered sleeves, front & back cutouts, & floor length with legs slits. Talk about attention to detail! During the winter months I'm more drawn to dark floral prints with black backgrounds. The only problem with a dress like this is you never seem to wear it because you feel like there has to be a really good reason to, I know every girl can relate to this!
