Had to cut my head off here on account of my face being farcical. Dress (worn as top) Very Old TOPSHOP, Shorts TOPSHOP, Herringbone Tights OASIS, Watch MICHAEL KORS

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.

    looooveely blog :) xxx

  3. I loveee her hair!

  4. Oh my god! I am OBSESSED with Ivy! She is totally my new style crush (that grey dress she wore to Naomi's birthday party?!), but have been far too embarrassed to tell people and thus reveal the fact that I watch 90210 slavishly, rather than Boardwalk Empire/The Wire/whatever box set everyone is foaming at the mouth over this month.x

  5. Ivys hair is lovely. Nice shorts!!

  6. 90210 is totally my guilty pleasure programme! I also love Ivy's style (And looking at Liam, of course}.


  7. Love Ivy's style :) like the outfit too x
