LOS ANGELES -- the land of palm trees, cool vibes, & laid back style. Break me off a piece of that any day. Here's my scoop on LA's best treasures and how to look like a local.
Let's get this straight, if you think LA is all bout the superficial, the glitz and glam of Hollywood, think again, there is another side to LA that sings to my heart, part gritty, part chic, and a whole lot of unpredictable free-spirited charm. Definitely worthy of a second glance, once you look past TMZ headquarters you'll find a city with an authentic voice and a rich soul.
LA STYLE is effortless and undone. It's definitely edgy, and everywhere you look there is leather and more leather. If I had to sum up LA Style: it's part rock n' roll, part bohemian child-of-the-wind, and part off duty actress/model. No one looks like they're trying too hard (with the exception of a budding blogger or two) -- but damn they look good. Moms in the park running after their 3 year olds were unabashedly hip, rocking leather jackets and dressy hats, green smoothie in hand.
I rotated a variety of CK styles that were totally LA inspired and definitely allowed me to blend in with the cool crowd. Below are my top 3 styles that I wore on repeat, styled in multiple different ways. Hint: they're also up to 40% off from now until Valentines and the best part is that they're totally season-less and will be staples in your wardrobe for years to come.
