California Casual with Silk and Pearls

#OOTD featuring HOMAGE BY CONSUELO VANDERBILT COSTIN for HSN Pearl necklace, Christian Paul watch, CUSTO Barcelona pants, GOGA blouse, Club Monaco cami, Coach pumps and handbag

My favorite thing about fashion in Los Angeles: the pairing of unexpected pieces with an overall air of comfortable and casual.

I start with one stunning accessory… in this case: a statement pearl collar necklace that dresses up the entire look.

Next I add a blouse made of a beautiful cream colored silk, loosely fitting and tie-front, by GOGA, a friend of mine. I tie it loosely over a clean, breezy, white silk cami.  The silk fabrics take the look upscale without losing the casual feel.

I LOVE PATTERNED PANTS and these are my current favorites… I get tons of compliments on the unique black and white pattern. I pair them with these amazing black pumps with gold hardware and just the right heel height to look like a heel but still be perfectly comfortable.


Then I accessorize with a pretty, cream colored watch and a contrasting color handbag (Watermelon!) and I’m ready to go: the perfect California hip/casual mix for around town or out with the girls.DSC_2044RT
