If you don’t know already, I’m a California girl. Being born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I have come to know a type of easy Californian way of dressing. A mixture of boho, beachy and carefree are key characteristics to describe this style. I feel most comfortable and confident in a good pair of jeans and a t-shirt which is totally indicative of the West Coast way. That’s why this outfit from Charlotte Russe was the perfect look for me. Boyfriend style jeans have always been a favorite style of mine. They can be dressed up or down and offer a lot of versatility. I paired the jeans with a basic white crop top and a kimono style cardigan. I love kimonos because they offer a bit of coverage but still allow the outfit to be light and airy. Lastly I completed the outfit with lace up caged heels. This style of shoe is somewhat casual even though they are heels so it went well with this laid back look. Also, the caged design all around was a different touch and an unexpected feature to the shoe. Overall this outfit is “California Cool”, simple but still stylish.
