skirt: madewell (similar), crop top: asos, vest: zara, sandals: cotton on, glasses: ray-ban

At the beginning of each season, stores and blogs and the entire fashion/ retail industry buzzes with getting all of the things from all of the trends. While I love shopping as much as the next gal, I try not to get too carried away with the hype. Not to mention, I'd like to think I have an ability to stay true to my personal style and avoid trend salad status. Anyways, the trends I tend to cling too are usually related to pieces and elements already present in my closet. For instance, this madewell skirt from two years ago perfectly fits the blush pink bill-- aka the color of the season. Or errrr, one of the colors of the season. Added the oversized vest to balance out the softness of the skirt, and get that whole "tough chic" thing.

Side note, I've figured out what my outlandish, dream job is. Following in the footsteps of Rusty Ryan, I'm pulling the Bellagio job my fantasy is managing a LA hotel. But instead of hiding out in the Hollywood Hills, my place would be along the coast in Santa Monica or Malibu. It's so preeeeetty. And if you didn't get that reference, rent Ocean's Eleven now.
