This was my first time visiting the famous OUE Skyspace LA. I have been seeing this amazing location on Instagram. When I got up to 1000 feet above the city, the view was better than just "Instagrammable". It's more than the height - its famour outdoor glass slide, the Colette Miller wings and the amazing 3D showroom are all so amazing. It's about the experience.
My outfit for this sky trip was from Nakd Fashion, a UK boutique brand. The blush sandals are from Just Fab Online. The bag is one of my favorite Chanel boy bags, the denim boy.
Guess what one of my favorite things about summer is? The beach!
Although some people in LA go to the beach year round, summer is the best time to go if you plan on going in the water. It can get cold during the rest of the year and that’s not as fun...obviuosly. One of my favorite things about the beach is the LA-type-of-fashion. It’s much more laid-back, effortless and relaxed. Although I still like to look cute, there’s much less pressure. Beach clothing is meant to be more comfortable and functional for activities. I love anything light and breezy or colorful and festive for the beach and just summer in general. My first two dresses are from Flying Colors apparel. The last one-one of my favorites because I love this vibrant orange is from KAS New York.
As far as accessories go, I gotta always have sunglasses and maybe a hat when I go to the beach. The sun is no joke this time of year! Straw or bamboo bags are handy too because they don’t get wrecked by the sand.Some of my favorites places to buy beach clothing and summer dresses are Forever 21, Revolve, H&M and Target. Amazon has a ton of choices too. It helps that shipping is so much faster now with Prime. I look forward to many more upcoming beach days and I am blessed to live somewhere with easy access to that.
I recently had an amazing time spending an afternoon at the famous Beverly Hills Hotel over on Sunset Boulevard.
Fun fact: The Golden Globes award ceremony has taken place here many times. So this is a pretty special historical place.
Beverly Hills is of course a place that’s known worldwide for wealth and celebrities, so I always like to look my best whenever I spend time here, lol. But that doesn’t mean I need to wear only expensive designer items. I actually prefer to wear a high/low mix of both high-end and cheaper fast fashion items. It’s more fun and relaxed that way.
My dress is by Jason Wu, who is most well-known for dressing former US First Lady Michelle Obama. I always love a vibrant bold print for summer. Plus this dress feels so light and airy. My handy crossbody bag is a timeless classic item from Chanel. My other accessories were more accessible. My sunglasses are from VYE Eyewear and my shoes are by Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s ready-to-wear collection. The chunky heel makes them easier and more comfortable to walk in while I still get the elevation:) I always love coordinating colors so I kept almost everything within the dark red/maroon/Burgundy family - kind of bold for me. I was trying to figure out how to play with these colors even in summer cuz I still love wearing red times year-round, why not? I love how put-together I feel when I opt for a monochrome color scheme.
I look forward to wearing many more fun outfits as summer continues. I will definitely keep you all posted, stay tuned.
