Sunday Styles no. 44


Hello, Los Angeles Autumn!

What does that really mean? 80+ degree days, tons of sun, and a very real confusion every morning as to what one should wear. The mornings are brisk and in the 60's. The afternoons are in the mid-80's. The evenings drop back down with a touch of humidity (by LA standards, which is still pretty dry relatively speaking.)

So, yesterday, I was out and about in all black (like ya do), thinking that a pair of shorts would keep me from melting. Sadly, such was not the case...And with that Charlesband and I ducked into an American Apparel and I got around to picking up one of those scoopback leotards that I've been meaning to get forever. (And Charlesband came out with the most adorbs denim jacket!)

The good news? It solved the problem! Wearing all black in the confusing weather is no longer an issue with this little number...and, so, I'm doing that thing that people do, but never admit to. I'm wearing the same outfit two days in a row. (Come on, you know you do it...especially if you don't plan on seeing the same people on the second day.)

I'm in love with this top! A few absolute pros:
  • Bra? Nope.
  • Keeps me from slouching! (Because if I did, there is potential for it to just flop off and for me to accidentally flash everyone with some full-frontal action...which is SO not happening. Shoulders back, ladies!!!)
  • Streamlined! Hey, leotards can kind of be a pain, but you don't have to stress about stuffing in your shirt, it coming unstuffed or weird bunching of fabric. It's like a second skin.
  • Affordable. Duh. Total plus!
  • A great basic! Shorts, pants, skirts. It goes with everything...and if you get cold, you can just throw on a cardigan and call it a day.
I can't think of any cons right now...in short, that's an absolute win in my eyes!

So, if you're on the west coast and are looking for a basic that works for this frantically fluctuating weather, go pick yourself up one of these. It's dramatically feminine without being gross. Really, there are few things prettier than the nape of a woman's neck and the curves of her back.

Alright. Back to life! Have a great rest of the weekend! xo!
