Easter Look.

ImageImageImageImage

After yet another week of slacking on the blog, here’s an Easter flashback to last weekend where I spent a beautiful day down in Manhattan Beach with my boyfriend and his family. We went to sunrise Easter service on the beach at 6:30am (!!!!!), napped of course, had an adult Easter egg hunt which turned out pretty awesome, and ate too much as usual. Fun times.

I’ve posted before on how I like to dress a touch above casual for holidays, since I think they are special days of the year, so for this fun day of beautiful spring weather I chose this loose and breezy, retro-print dress. It was really too warm for the fur vest, but I tossed it on for one shot anyway. You all know my take on being casual and comfortable when having holiday lunches with the family, so this dress’s loose and comfortable fit was perfect for the food and activities of the day. Paired with comfortable booties for the boho vibe, it was a fun and manageable outfit perfect for spring! :)

Fringe booties back in action! My most comfortable shoes of the past year, as you’ve probably noticed, make a heavy rotation through my wardrobe. I’m slightly obsessed with them, and no lies, following one very late night a while back I actually fell asleep with them on at one point. It’s love.

Keeping it casual, layered, and with a punch of color, I paired some bleach-wash skinnies, an oversized western graphic tee, and kept the burnt oranges as the highlight of my outfit with my textured cardigan. I busted out the fringe bag to keep the look going, and the best part was getting the chance to wear one of my favorite beauty products; Fresh “Sugar Lip Treatment” in Coral. It goes on like the most buttery-smooth balm imaginable, making your lips feel amazing, and covers like a lipstick. I’m obsessed and own almost every color. Muah! Kisses.

Floral, Fringe & fishnet.

I was feeling in the mood to go a little boho-cozy today. I like mixing textures, but was feeling somewhat neutral, so I threw on my taupe fringe booties, gray skinnies, a gray open-knit sweater, and my trusty hippie headwrap. I am in love with this little headwrap because it’s perfect for days when my flyaways are acting up. Today, my hair just felt unmanageable and all over the place, so on it went, keeping everything in place, without being pulled back. I opted for jewelry with a little more of a vintage “used” feel than my standard modern-and-delicate geometric pieces I usually layer all over the place. It was cozy and comfortable, until I tripped outside Starbucks and my latte slammed into the ground. That was fun coming back inside and reordering the exact same drink, from the exact same barista, in what most guys would find a very distinct outfit, with my weird little head thing and all. Soooo chic…

But speaking of guys and the weird things that girls wear… let me toot my boyfriend’s horn for a second: one of the things I love about him most is he is very receptive to fashion and trends. He has simple, masculine style but still with an interest in branching out and trying new things. He likes to look good, even if it’s a simple tee, and I love that. And the best part, all the weird combinations of things I wear and interesting trends I come home with he actually likes…including my little hippie headwrap and array of printed pants. The true test will be when I come home with a dropcrotch pant. I’ll report back on whether I’m single or not after that happens. I like fashion risks occasionally, and so far there hasn’t been much I’ve come home with where he makes that classic male “what the hell is that on your body” expression. What a keeper. :)
