It’s been pretty hot in LA, especially inland where I live. I was originally set on wearing a maxi dress the same afternoon I wore this, but it was 100 degrees in the Valley; even a long skirt over my legs felt too hot. When looking for a just-as-easy yet cooler alternative, this outfit was a no-brainer. It was perfect for a relaxing summer day, not to mention that it incorporated three trends I currently like: stripes, high-waisted denim, and leopard. Sure, this may not be the greatest photo of me, but it perfectly depicts the hot summer days we’ve been having and how lazy it can make you feel.
