Call me crazy, but I kind felt like I might be the 4th Olsen sister in this get-up. There was something about the minimalistic & slightly menswear inspired look paired with the messy hair, slides and structured bag that seemed a little Olsen-esq – or at least similar to ‘The Row’ pieces which I could never afford in a million years. What do you think? I think the only thing throwing you off is the smile right? Otherwise I totally fit in with them. TOTALLY.
Anyway, the menswear romper is a Forever 21 piece from last Spring that I rediscovered in my closet the other day. I’ve rounded up a few more Olsen/The Row inspired pieces that are affordable below…
How is it Monday already – and the last days of March? I’m actually pretty exhausted because besides the fact that I haven’t been sleeping that well, I’ve working out pretty hard right now – which I AM excited about! Like I mentioned last week, Christine and I are doing some exercise classes with fitn and we ended up doing both spin & barre this weekend. It’s so much fun working out with Christine and treating ourselves to some coffee & girl talk after. We are doing another spin class this evening to so we might be slightly dead after that haha!
CMV and I also had a guest this weekend – one of his best friends from college. It was a great time showing him our ‘hood and the beaches on this gorgeous weekend. I drove the boys down the PCH on Saturday and stopped in Laguna at The Rooftop for a drink with a view before heading down to San Clemente for the sunset and dinner with CMV’s parents!
My workout class on Sunday morning was in Seal Beach which I had never been to. What a CUTE town! After working up a sweat in class, Christine and I got iced coffees at Javatinis before walking to the pier and then exploring some shops. One of my favorites was the boutique Stitch & Feather. If you are in the area you must stop by. I can’t wait to go back and explore some more – and maybe try one of the many restaurants along main street.
After that I took it easy, taking a nap & doing some laundry. I’m hoping for a more low key week and keeping up the exercise!
I actually wasn’t planning on taking pics of this outfit but I realized I had my tripod in my car and I was like why not? I wore this the other day running some errands and to go pick a few things up from Ari (who is getting married this weekend!!). It was a proper spring day in California – meaning not too, too hot and I decided that I wanted to “spring-ify” the white tee and jeans I had on. For spring, my favorite thing to do to dress up basics, is add a fun lightweight scarf and some metallic accessories – oh and a cute spring jacket is also great. I actually got this jacket for $10 from H&M 3 years ago and still love it. It was at the height of the mint color craze and at that price, I couldn’t pass it up. It’s a tweed material that also has a little bit of silver in it and I still love it. It goes to show, that sometimes the best (and most long-lasting) pieces aren’t always the most expensive ones! Also, don’t mind my hair. I had it in a messy bun all day and didn’t realize that the ombre part of it was all to one side of the bun. Oops.
