Daytime: High-Low, Printed Dress

I saw this dress at Zara on sale and knew I needed to have it. The abstract floral print and flowy, high-low hemline make it ideal for almost any occasion, day or night. I wore this outfit on Sunday to a picnic in Griffith Park. A cream, denim jacket, cheery, yellow belt and pair of mint wedge sandals made the dress casual enough for day. It was perfect for strolling through the park and sitting in the shade of big trees with friends. We sprawled out on a blanket eating sweet pastries and visiting nearby dogs.

Later this week, I am remixing the dress to show how simply it can be changed for night.

Check back on Thursday to see how a few, key accessories are all it takes to transform a look.

Printed dress: Zara, cream denim jacket: Theory (love this similar one), wedges: gifted Marco Santi via Sole Society, aviator sunglasses: gifted Chloe via Ditto, clutch: American Apparel, belt: from a Jason Wu for Target dress, gold ball studs: H&M, bracelets: Jessica Elliot (wood), Sheila Fajl (bangles) and vintage (triple strand).

Beauty note: I opted for a simple pink lip and cheek, and a loose, half braid bun (as seen in the last post) during the day.

Half Braid Bun

This weekend flew by. We hung out with friends at night. Drinks outside by the pool and fire pits at The Roosevelt Hotel was a highlight (highly recommended for groups, no guest list requirements). We also hosted a game night. During the day, I went to a picnic in Griffith Park (beautiful) with fellow L.A. bloggers and accomplished several DIY projects that I had wanted to try.¬† I’m excited to share some of these along with some fun, new outfit posts later this week.

In the meantime, here is a preview of the hairstyle I wore on Sunday. My hair is parted on the side and I have two half braids secured with clear elastics. The ends of the braids are wrapped into a bun at the back of my head and held together with bobby pins. I completed the look by curling one inch sections of the hair left down away from my face. Once my hair was cool, I loosened the curls by combing through them with my fingers.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
