Going West Coast

Looking to the lovely West Coast for inspiration today. The steady beat of sunshine, rock-n-roll cool and creative chic outfits that Californians put together, make terrific warm weather influences for the rest of us.

So, Cal

There’s an undertone of ease to these looks, which I am always drawn too. Pops of color and accessories really elevate these looks from anything ordinary. The addition of a white blazer on Elsal of Wander Uptown, takes her short + T-shirt combo to the next level. And did you notice the light-wash jeans on The Maya Kay?! It’s a 180 degree departure from the over-dyed indigo jeans that have ruled for the past few years. The light color feels right at home during the warm months with an ocean breeze on your skin. If you didn’t want to lighten up your jean color (a bad-idea for some of us — like me), maybe a jean jacket is better. They’re back too.

I no longer wear short-shorts (eek), but would happily swap-out the shorts for a skirt or cropped pant in these outfits. It’s all about doing what works best for your body and re-imagining your closet in new ways. We probably don’t need as many new clothes as we think we do, just new ways to pair our current clothes.

We’ve finally got warm weather in Boulder and Denver, so we’re catching up to the rest of you. Enjoy the day!
