Keeping it “Cali Cool”

It isn’t until very recently I started realizing the impact the United States has on the fashion world. After all, Paris is synonymous with chic, but what are we known for? Well, I feel like New York got the effortless chic reputation, Miami gets all the fun, and California? Like our Coast we keep it cool.

As much as I would like to think I dress runway ready every day, that’s just not possible. But thanks to “Western Fashion Dress code” even my off days are still in line with tradition. It doesn’t take very much to achieve this look. Shorts and sandals typically accomplish this but in typical fashion girl style even something as simple as a pair of sandals has to have an element of drama- thus the choice of going with gladiator sandals. Surprisingly, my Steve Madden gladiators have been my go to selection for the past few summers. Shocking to me because typically the life expectancy I have for Steve Maddens is 2 months.

Alas, I’ve come to the conclusion to achieve said California Cool look you need 3 things- color, minimal accessories, and a gust of wind in your hair. A pink cadillac in the background is always a nice accent as well.
