Hello my sweet, sweet readers! I’m back posting and stronger than ever! Remember I told you about my American holiday? I spent one week in the wonderful city of Los Angeles, California and another week in the sinful Las Vegas, Nevada. First holiday with the boyfriend and also his first time visiting the US. There was a lot of sightseeing, lots of adventures, party nights, shopping and more. Heading out to LA was absolutely amazing! There is something about that city, the people, their lifestyles, it’s fabulous! So, I have prepared for you today some of the looks I put together for my lovely vacation. I hope you like them!
LOOK 1: Take me out to the ball game!
I’m a born yankee fan, I have been all my life. The kind of fan that cries when stepping into Yankee stadium. So anytime I find myself in a city where that has a baseball stadium, I am there. When I found out Dodgers were playing against Phillies, that was it. I bought my tickets two months in advance and got a pretty good deal for some great seats! For the game I wanted to look comfortable but chic. I am not a sneaker gal, I have never been. But in the name of baseball, everything is possible. I chose a vintage t-shirt from the Dodgers, v-neck and a little washed out. I found it at Urban Outfitters. I paired it with some cut-offs in pastel pink. I tucked the tee in a bit to flatter my waist. Striped canvas trainers in white and blue. And since the game starts when the sun is still out, it is important for you to wear sunscreen and put on a pair of sunglasses, my choice: aviators. This ones are from AX.
For accessories, a simple backpack like this one from ASOS and a cute watch in pink, this one from Glam Rock in ceramic is to die for! For beauty, lip gloss with SPF, Clinique’s Long Last Glosswear in Bamboo Pink. Play ball!
LOOK 2: Big City Lights
There’s nothing I enjoy more than drinks after dinner! If LA has one thing to offer is its nightlife. But what I loved the most was to discover that our hotel, The Standard, had a rooftop pool that turned into a bar at night. So sipping Mojitos and Vodka Tonics while gazing at the goregous view of Downtown LA became one of our favorite activities. Here’s what I wore one night: A silk olive tank from Zara tucked inside my high waisted mini in strawberry, also from Zara (I also have it in green and floral). I cinched it with a braided belt in Salmon from H&M. I am obsessed with this combination, strawberry-salmon-olive, the perfect trifecta. For shoes, I wore a pair of my favorite babies, Steve Madden’s Karmenaf, floral pumps in white.
For accessories, an olive clutch with fringes, cute, cute as a button. For jewelry, a belted bracelet form Marc by Marc Jacobs, also in strawberry. Yeah I know, call me Miss Match. A white ring, this is from Disney Couture (I love their line). For the final touch, Essie’s Need a Vacation to add on more sweetness to it!
LOOK 3: Sky High Sushi Dinner
The day after a night out in town partying, the right thing to do is a cute dinner in a nice restaurant and then some room service Cheescake. One night we went to Takami Restaurant, on the 21st floor of a building located in Downtown LA. The view is stunning and the food is to die for! Rock shrimp, tuna tartare, Spicy Tuna and more… We ordered like 7 or 8 plates. For this night, I went for a more casual look. A pantsuit from Zara. I got it on sale and when I tried it on I wasn’t that sure it was going to flatter my figure. Well, it did! To play with the styling a bit, I added a navy blue belt with a golden buckle (same color of the garment). For shoes, my tan t-strap platform sandals. This ones are from ASOS. This shoe style is so resourceful! I need to buy another pair, they are wearing out on me!
For accessories, a green envelope clutch (this one is from ASOS) and a chain, gold bangle. For the nails, I got this nail polish at Walgreen’s. It was on sale and it is the cutest shade of lilac, from Revlon, Lilac Pastelle.
So there you have it, three days, three looks! Check back tomorrow for the second part of my trip! Fashion Week is almost here, are you ready?
