OOTD: Let’s Hit the Canals

The Venice Canals in Venice Beach are a famous tourist attraction (and the site of multi-million dollar real estate). They were specifically designed with the bright culture and romantic feel of the original Venice Canals in mind.

I know it’s totally acceptable to dress down/like a hipster in Venice these days, but the canals still inspire me to dress up. I feel like I can wear a hat here and I’ll fit in.

I designed this outfit around my black and white old-fashioned hat, from a boutique on Melrose. Due to the black band in the hat, I added a navy long-sleeved crop top from Forever 21.

Going with the navy/black/white nautical vibe, I put on this white flowy skirt from Forever 21. The proportions are so perfect for the segue into fall: long sleeves on top, but a crop top and short skirt on bottom. Sandals were the perfect footwear – these silver sandals are also from Forever 21.

I opted for silver jewelry. The silver ring is my everyday wear from Tiffany’s. The Perry Street Bethany necklace added some color and pattern to the otherwise solid outfit. I received it in one of my Rocksbox sets and had to have it.

This outfit is also cute for brunch, a day at a museum or a lunch date. Hooray for versatility!
