California Girl

One of the things I take for granted is the casual ease of dressing in California. While at my core, I love the principle of being a well put together East Coaster, I have realized that I have slipped into a routine of cozy knits, soft-washed linens, and worked in denim, the wardrobe of a now-turned California girl. A classic backdrop of Spanish tiles and magenta bougainvillea complete the setting for this summer look, sure to be well worn throughout the upcoming months. Enter my latest obsession: the white bodysuit. This version is by Are You Am I, but I like this version as well, paired with this striped linen and cotton wrap skirt and denim jacket. Lastly, the shoes. Wedges can be a real hit or miss, teetering on a fine line between a French Rivera Brigitte Bardot or a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills (...or worse Orange County!) Eek! But the espadrille style combined with a wraparound ankle tie makes for a welcome modern update. On the brink of summer, this California look will be with me on my travels.
