My Style // The Old LA Zoo


Earlier this week I shared some of my favorite office style looks.  When it’s 90 degrees outside getting dressed for work can be a real challenge.  The struggle is real!  This look is still one of my favorites!  It’s not too heavy, but you can keep wearing the skirt well into fall and winter with tights.  Are you sick of seeing this t-shirt yet?!  Oh how I wish I could go back and order another one!  It’s definitely seen it’s better days, but I am definitely wearing it right now while writing this.  Oh, and if you live in LA, this spot, The Old LA Zoo, is definitely worth checking out!  Have a great weekend, y’all!

In light of this increasing work mode, I’ve also shed my usual skinny jean routine and have been loving skirts. Nothing says “I mean business” like a boucle skirt, am I right?  The knotted tee keeps it more fun and playful than a button down or blazer would.  While we are still battling some less than fall feeling temperatures here in LA, I’m imagining this with opaque Wolford tights, chunky heeled boots, and a trench coat in a couple of months. Fingers crossed!

This post was shot at the Old Zoo here in LA.  It’s fun to imagine walking in and out of these caves where lions and tigers and bears once laid their heads… oh my!  Plus it seems pretty fitting for a post about getting back into work at full-speed.  After all, it’s a jungle out there.
