Have you ever felt inspired by a place? Whether it’s your hometown or a vacation destination, you feel influenced by the colors and culture surrounding you. This happens to me every time I’m in beautiful Malibu California. California weather is so different than the East Coast and I was totally inspired by the relaxing beachy atmosphere, especially when styling my outfits. This off-the-shoulder maxi dress is by my favorite contemporary brand, Alice + Olivia. I thought this color was so fun and unexpected. The dress also has great little details, like the scalloped and embroidered accents that add a bohemian vibe. I paired it with blush pink accessories, an oversized belt and stacked suede heels and a cropped leather moto jacket for the cooler Malibu evenings.
I also paired the outfit with an accessory trend I’ve been loving….tassel earrings. They add an exciting statement piece to any look. Lately, I find myself reaching for my tassel earrings more than any other jewelry because they make any outfit a bit dressier and pulled together. I love how simple they are, making a statement without being overwhelming. Even though I’m back on the East Coast now, I’ve still got California on my mind and in my wardrobe.
