(Cardigan-Timeless Boutique on Melrose; Silk Cami- Indie boutique in Sydney; Clutch-Nastygal.com; Shorts-Ditto)
This photos were shot in May, a week after finals. I was finally able to shop in stores instead of online shopping between group meetings and assignments.
Shopped on Melrose for the first time (and had been back many times since), I got this neon cardigan from Timeless Boutique. What's amazing about this piece is that the edges are lined with clip buttons so you could basically clip it into anything you want it to be. I have it as a cardigan here, but I can also wear it as a straight scarf, infinity scarf, a halter top, a maxie skirt or even a dress! I will try to do at least 2 other variations of this piece before the end of this summer :).
LA is getting warmer by the day but the nights can still be kind of chilly, especially on the beach. A light cardigan/wrap like this would be perfect for a beach outing. It takes up so little space in your bag but it as a soft layer (the grey section, as you can see in the close-up, it uses a different fabric than the neon sections) that will give you enough warmth.
