OOTD | Sitting Up In My Room

Living in Los Angeles is starting to grow on me (just a little). I think it's mainly because of my apartment in Downtown LA. I love the hustle and bustle of the city life, the urban streets, graffiti and art, immense array of shopping, restaurants, nightlife and best of all everything is walking distance! Living in downtown is like a whole different world compared to the mountains and palm tress that you would mostly see here.

This outfit for me is perfect for a casual day in Downtown LA, especially if you are walking and exploring the area because it provides you with comfort for walking while looking uber stylish.

:: OUTFIT DETAILS ::

Sweater: H&M  | Boyfriend Jeans: Old Navy  | Booties: Charlotte Russe


I decided to make the red sweater is the focus of this outfit by muting my bottom pieces (the black booties and the jeans) and adding a highlight accentuate the top (i.e. the gold jewelry) and I think it came out great as I got a lot of compliments from people walking the street. I still wanted to add a bit of edge to this look (going for a downtown urban feel), so I thought these ripped boyfriend jeans would do that.

I call this look.... downtown living.
