A breezy, long sleeve blouse, comfortable jeans, and a great hat – is there any outfit that feels more like a late Californian summer? As a (almost) California native, I think not.
I’ve lived in southern California – specifically Palos Verdes – since I was 5 years old, and my favorite time of year has always been Indian summer. That time of year where it’s supposed to be fall and the days get shorter, but the sun feels just as hot as it did in early August, and I still have the excuse to head to the beach for a Sunday Funday. So I picked out my most Venice appropriate, billowy blouse and fedora for an afternoon on Abbott Kinney.
I found this bright wall in Venice and it was begging for a photo shoot – the ideal backdrop for my minimal, Westside outfit. I really have been digging all those Reformation lace-up body suits floating around on Instagram, but I really don’t have the best body type for a leotard…they make me feel a bit hippy, so I found the next best option, a loose blouse with lace front details.
The rest of the outfit came together quickly, easy boyfriend jeans, a stacked heel for height that echoes the lace up top, and my most bohemian bag. I actually bought this little nugget for Coachella one year and I haven’t used it since, but I think that’s all going to change now, especially since the ‘70s trend is still strong for fall. Get on the boho bandwagon and shop some of my favorite pieces below!
