Spring has sprung, and tomorrow marks the first day of spring (for all of you who aren't in SoCal, for us here in LA, its been summer since the weekend!)!
On Saturday I headed to a fashion event in Beverly Hills with Samira, a fashion blogger from Stylemesamira.com! Post coming up to recap the event next week! It was a rather hot day (90 degrees F!), and so I busted out my favorite black dress shorts that I have had for years, I believe since I was 16!
I really wanted to wear my new Midnight Waters Necklace from the Yayoi Collection at Boyajian Trend Gallery, so I tried to come up with an outfit that it would be the centerpiece! I love figuring out outfits to go with statement jewelry pieces, and this was a great opportunity since it was a nice day out! I wore a plain white tank top from Forever21 that I got for $2! and a gray mini vest that I have had for some years, probably since high school as well!
I wanted to wear heels to the event but I knew I would be standing/walking around so I wanted to be comfortable. I wore these heeled sandals that were super comfortable that I bought in Hawaii, from a local store in Waikiki called Island Fever.
I then quickly curled the ends of my hair, which came out nice and took me only 10 minutes! I was amazed at how fast I have become at curling my hair. It also helps that I hadn't washed my hair in a couple of days -- this makes for easier to curl hair! I wore it half up so I could get some of the attention on the necklace!
Tank Top: Forever 21 | Gray Vest: old | Black dress shorts: old | Necklace: Yayoi Collection Boyajian Trend Gallery | Bracelets: Ivory given as gift | Watch: NY&C
While this would be a great outfit for a day out during the weekend, I surely can't wear this to the lab with the sandals and the shorts.
If I was going to transition this for work, I would just switch out the shorts and sandals for dark jeans and my black boots, or, if I was to wear this to a conference, wear some black dress pants with boots or closed heels. The top with the vest and necklace would be cool to add some style and flare for work otherwise!
What do you think about this outfit? For work, would you just change the shorts to pants and boots? Or what would you do differently to transition this better for work? Let me know in the comments below!
