Stripes in Santa Monica


Photography by Samantha Klose

I want to show you guys one of my favorite looks from a recent trip to LA! With 70 degrees and sun in the winter, it's hard not to channel my Seattle summer style! Keep scrolling for my outfit details and to shop my look!


I styled white Topshop moto cropped wide leg jeans with a striped blue top from Tobi that I got last summer (check out the original post here!). These white crops are my go-to staple in the summer time, especially for brisker days, where shorts get too cold. Since the white goes with everything, they're great to get early in the season to have throughout!


Shop Blue Off the Shoulder Crop Tops


For accessories, I paired a straw cluth (shop some of my favorites below!), blue with gold mirrored Quay Dreamy Ways sunglasses, my favorite David Yurman bangle and nude espadrille sandals from Forever 21.

Heading to the Santa Monica pier is I'm sure something only tourists do, but seeing the Pacific Ocean with the vast sand beaches always makes me smile. It may not be the most local spot in LA, but I do still love trying to stop by every few trips. 

I hope you love shopping the pieces linked above! Let me know in the comments the types of style posts you hope to see here on Kelsey This Year!
