The weather is warming up in California and the sleeves are coming off. I went for a chic cut-off vest to add texture to my outfit and a thin black pencil skirt, while Luna keeps it casual in a baggy Balenciaga tee. She loves her Balenciaga sneakers, so we wore matching pairs for this stroll through Pasadena.
I love to mix and match styles right now, so the Marcella skirt and the chunky sneakers give that perfect mix of stylish and sporty. We have a lot of big plans this summer. It's good to have sneakers on hand - you don't want to walk around all day in uncomfortable shoes.
Luna and I love matching, so we also pulled out our matching Balenciaga handbags. The extra chain on her handle makes it easy for her to wear without dragging it everywhere, too. On dressed-down days like this, I try not to wear too much jewelry. I layered a few light gold necklaces to match the plunging neckline on the vest, but nothing too flashy. I stayed lowkey with the unassuming paperclip earrings, and let me tell you - I love these. They're not ostentatious, they're not too flashy to wear out, and they go with everything. I can wear them with a casual look like this or dress them up with something more elegant too.
I did go a bit bigger with the gold bracelet - it matches the accents of the bag and the necklaces so well, and it ties the look together without drawing attention to it. It's easy to go overboard on jewelry, but I'm always inspired by Coco Chanel's “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
We had such a great time on this trip, and I can't wait to edit more of the photos to share.
