Sunday Styles no. 16

Ahoy, fair weather! You have returned to Los Angeles just in the nick of time! (Phew.) I was about to lose all faith in the city of angels, but things turned around this past week and we're back to sunshine and 75+ degree weather. Wonderful, wonderful. Faith, restored. Parka, back in the closet.

And, as was predicted, the coming of the warmer weather has brought on a brighter side of Nami. (Though, admittedly, last week's "dark side" was a lot of fun and that sweater will be getting a boatload of wear.) This weekend, I went a little, dare I say, "girly."

Leather, the secret to not looking like a doily.

Here's the thing. I'm a tomboy. When given the choice between jeans & a t-shirt or a dress, I'll go with the former 9 times out of 10. My fashion icons are people like James Dean and Rei Kawakubo. However, this Sunday I was feeling fashionably flexible and Husband Charles sweet talked me (a.k.a. promised me an Umami burger) into pulling out one of my dresses and giving it a whirl.

The key was to add my leather jacket and black heels to toughen the dress up a bit. So, both Nami & Husband Charles win and my gams get a little bit of sunshine while we're busy winning. Sounds like a good time overall. Also, burgers...also, this dress allows for maximum burger consumption due to a lack of a waist. More winning!

Hope things are warming up where you are and if not, hope you're cozy. I'm sending warm weather wishes your way! xo!

  1. Nami, I love that dress! It is so cute!
    My brother always boasts that the weather in LA is always nice... I am jealous.

    1. Well, it sounds like someone (someone named YOU) needs to come visit LA!
      You'll have to let me know if you do.

      As for the dress, thanks! It was a steal. Well worth it. :)
