OK so this is a slightly inaccurate 'outfit post' in that these pictures were actually taken one balmy/not below freezing day last week when I woke up feeling all summery and not today. Today I was wearing an unimaginative man's tartan shirt and boring but perennially practical American Apparel denim shorts, nothing worthy of visuals. I am pretty sure that this particular choice of attire had something to do with my new found obsession with 90210 or more specifically, Ivy from 90210. The epitome of boho chic, she makes teeny tiny bikinis, loose shapeless dresses and fringing look effortlessly cool, a nice contrast from the rest of the characters with their perfect hair and horrible designer handbags. There is something about that laid back luxe Californian style that I love; beachy hair and nonchalance just screams sexy. Although it also helps if you have a rocking body and a killer wardrobe (see the beautiful Rumi Neely of fashiontoast ). The best thing about this look is that it's relaxed, it's not a brief, bizarre trend like the Skort, it's more a way of life.
|I love Ivy. Seriously considering going back to blond for summer.|
