Long weekends are the best. I spent the holiday shopping and having lunch with my mom at The Grove and then relaxing at home. I’ve been on a mission to find some work outfits for a new, more corporate job I am starting this week. The weather was beautiful this weekend so besides walking around and shopping at the outdoor mall, I spent a lot of time sitting out in the yard doing work by the pool.
I wore this out to celebrate the new job with friends. The outfit was perfect for dinner at The Churchill and then drinks in Hollywood at The Well and The Cat & Fiddle. I love the mix of hard, thanks to the top’s leather sleeves and the black skirt, and feminine, from the shoe ruffles and bow belt.
Leather sleeve top: Zara (new), tulip skirt: American Apparel (on major sale), bow belt: Asos (similar here and here), white and black square heels: Preen for Aldo Rise, feather headband: F21, clutch: American Apparel, brooch: vintage, earrings: Gorjana, rings Gorjana and XIV Karats, bracelets: vintage (large link), Sheila Fajl and Jessica Elliot (bangles).
