Day and Night

8 Feb

In classical ballet, everyone moves with such grace and ease that it’s easy to forget all the rigorous training they go through in order to display such elegance. I feel like that’s how it is with personal style. For some, it comes naturally, but for others, they must “train” themselves to find the balance between textures, colors, and silhouettes.

I’ve hit a bit of a rut and I’m reverting to what I know best…cardigans, skinny jeans, scarves, flats, and a chignon. When I can’t think of anything to wear, I pull out this type of outfit.

Outfit Details: GapKids Stella McCartney cardigan M, William Rast Jerri Ultra Skinny jeans 24, Nordstrom cami XS, Steve Madden flats, Forever 21 scarf and purse

During the weekends, I want to explore LA a little bit more. Even though I’ve been here for quite some time, I really don’t know this city very well. So, I’m scouting around for cool nooks around town that jump out at me. I pass by the LACMA (LA County Museum of Art) quite often and the streetlight exhibit really caught my eye. Finally, we had a chance to stop by at night and take some photos.

It was an interesting venture into the densely packed streetlights on Wilshire Blvd. There are several different styles of lamps and just seeing all the details engraved on each light made it so fascinating. Who knew that streetlights can have character?

    I love photography’s ability to make the ordinary beautiful. These lamp posts are just lovely! I love your red flats! Very wizard of Oz-ish eh? 🙂

    Btw thanks for the info on the contacts, as well as your other commenters. Maybe I’ll try a pair myself!

      Thanks! I didn’t think those flats were Wizard of Oz-ish…but now that I think about it, it kind of does. As for the contacts, they’re fun to wear, kind of like a new accessory.

    Grey and dark red is one of my favorite color combinations. Excellent choice of shoe. =)

      Thanks for the compliment! I love mixing new color combos with grey…it’s my new neutral!

    The grey colors are a nice combination, especially when accompanied by the red scarf 🙂

    And the photos with the streetlights are really fascinating! I agree with MizzJ that photography can make something ordinary appear extraordinary.
