Packing my bags for a trip back to my hometown of Los Angeles is always fun. L.A. is the city of the “casual cute” look. Lately I’ve been experimenting with dresses that are loose and flowy, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to test some new ones. No, I am not pregnant or gaining weight. I just get a kick out of testing the limits of feminine and a little sexy without having to feel like I’m wearing saran wrap. Kind of like my take on the little black dress I posted a few months back.
On Sunday I stopped by Huntington Beach for a day of leisurely fun in the sun with my mom. I decided to pull out this little grey number from Forever 21 (similar) paired with my old go-to Chuck Taylor sneakers (which I think only get better with age). Together they were a “casual cute” win.
Back in NYC, I’m looking forward to trying this dress with some tights, boots and a leather jacket until the temps finally pick up, and also with some sandals in the summer.
And speaking of cute, it was great to be able to cruise around LA in this hot red beauty this weekend thanks to my friends at Lexus. Their brand-new NX crossover SUV was the perfect way to complete my look (and it matched my hair at that!)
