Chelsea & The City: Los Angeles Edition

I had plans to be a little more productive and share a very special outfit/giveaway today but unfortunately my second dose of cold medicine had something else in mind! Instead, I'm sharing my fourth installment of  'city style guide' and taking an imaginary trip to much sunnier LA skies.

Los Angeles is where I feel most at home. Every time I de-plane at LAX, I take in a deep breath (despite the infamous smog) and instantly feel at ease. There's something about the laid-back, carefree, California-cool vibe that just speaks, or rather whispers, to my soul. Looking for something to do in the Golden State? Head to Bottega Louie for the best macaroons, check out the Hollywood sign for a little dose of nostalgia and pound the pavement on Melrose for a few quirky wardrobe items.

California style is all about easy pieces with a little bit of urban edge. My perfect look for a day in LA definitely includes some cool kicks and staple aviators. Since the sun shines on the West Coast, a fedora and a pop of color are a must. I urge you to take a cue from my favorite Los Angeles style bloggers, Aimee Song from Song of Style and Julie Sarinana aka Sincerely, Jules, and layer on some fabulous arm swag and a California cool attitude!
