Seafoam + Short Shorts

It’s nearly impossible not to be drawn to bright shades with springtime around the corner. Although I still personally adore the shades of tangerine and cerise ( my spring time color obsession of last year), i’m also obsessing over this seafoam green color this season. So I was extremely excited when Rachel Roy sent this beautiful cutout shoulder silk blouse! It’s one of those pieces I know i’ll be wearing repeatedly over & over again! I also love pairing dressier blouses with undone casual shorts to give it more a casual cool california vibe!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I spent my weekend moving from my downtown LA loft to a cozy little home by the beach! It’s been quite a move & a drastic change but i’m loving the breezy & laid back lifestyle here. I guess its about time that I transition from a city girl to a laid back beach gal! If you had a choice would you rather live in the city or by the beach??

Why must everything you wear so expensive, how do we ever acheive this look if majority of us can’t get close to affording these things. Keep in mind, your followers/viewers are highschool-college students.

What a cute outfit! Makes me want to go out and buy a top like that. :) You have a very beautiful tan as well!

I’m not a beach lover, but I’d love to live by the beach just to hear the sound of the sea! But at the end of the day I like the city too much!
And I love how you paired that beautiful blouse with those shorts and heels!

Girls that glitter love the dark

Oh you are so lucky! I wish I could live by the beach! And have those legs, by the way… :-)

The seafoam green color looks absolutely stunning on you. I love how you contrasted it with the coral necklace and nailpolish, I didn’t know those colors go so well together! I also love your snake print bag!

Amazing outfit~ Looks really nice! :) Oh– and well, I like it either way: city for some wildness, the beach for serenity. :D

Selestice Solar ( March 19, 2012 at 4:45 AM )

For me, I prefer live on the beach! I love beach. :) NIce outfit.

Yen Yi ( March 19, 2012 at 4:19 AM )

Beautiful outfit! And to answer your question: The beach! Definitely one hundred percent the beach! I’m actually feeling a bit jealous right now.. A cosy little home by the beach, that would be a dream come true for me! Congratulations!
Could you maybe post some pictures of your home, you did that before and I thought your interior was so beautiful and ‘zen’ with the books and the flowers, very inspiring. I would love to see what you made of it this time!

Sabine@TrashFashion ( March 19, 2012 at 4:18 AM )

Great look! You look minty fresh! :)

Natasha Fatah ( March 19, 2012 at 3:34 AM )
