California Dreamin' // Outfit of the Day


I have not done an ootd post in such a long time! I had been trying to figure out when I would do one and when I wore an outfit that I really enjoyed, I just had to reach out to my friend, Ian, from Ian Rosal Photography to help me out!

It was a sunny day and I wanted to take advantage of it as the sun was going down. I'm not a model by any means (although I wish I was one) so taking photos were honestly really awkward for me. I don't know how models are able to pose without feeling weird!

This outfit is perfect as we transition from winter into spring, although there really is no need for a transition if you live in Southern California. We've had the same kind of weather for most of "winter."

There are a lot of dark colors, but the pop of red on my shoes and peach and cream for my flower crown brighten up this outfit a bit! The flower crown is my favorite piece in this outfit; I got it from a local fashion truck called Selvedge Dry Goods that specializes in vintage accessories and clothing. They also ship nationwide too if you would like something but aren't in the Los Angeles area!


Flower Crown: Selvedge Dry Goods // Purple Velvet Crop Top: Urban Outfitters // Brown Lace Bandeau: Stole from Sister // Black Knit Cardigan: Target // Black High-Waisted Shorts with Bows: Forever 21 // Red Snakeskin Loafers: Target





How would you transition into spring?

  2. I would transition into spring with cardigans and shawls made of light and airy materials! California weather is no reason not to layer amazing outofts, as I so love to do. The floral crowns like pictured are a perfect touch, or even simple chains with a flower here and there. The more nature like in look, the better this year - my prediction~

  5. My designer dress is amazing! I was so nervous buying a dress online; worried it wouldn't fit so I ordered a size larger just in case. It also shipped very quickly and arrived within 4 days!
