I have such a deep rooted love for overalls, so obviously I've been so happy that they have made a come back. I've been sporting them since summer 13'. I remember one of the first pair of overalls I had as a child that I literally couldn't live without and continued wearing them even as they were way to short. They were a dark washed long pair with Esmeralda on the front. They were everything!

I've linked a few of my favorite pairs of overalls below! Hope all of you guys have a beautiful Thanksgiving!! I can't wait for all the sweet potatoes my tummy is going to consume.

The Year Round Crop Top

Flannel// LF Robertson blvd
Jeans// Carmar Denim (bought at LF Robertson)
Key necklace// The Giving Key
I absolutely love hanging out at the Grove around the holiday season. The christmas tree, and the snow that falls makes it feel like a magical winter wonderland.  I had such a wonderful day strolling around with my bestie, looking at all of the Christmas decorations, grabbing lunch at the farmers market (best iced coffee at Short Cake LA), and popping in at the Revolve Pop Up shop where I purchased a House of Harlow Ring I'm beyond obsessed with. 

The weather in LA is a bit bipolar. One day it's hot outside and the next day there is a brisk chill. This can make it a bit difficult to get dressed in the morning. I absolutely love this new crop top from Wonderland Honolulu it's so soft and comfortable and can be easily worn all year round. Pair it with ripped jeans and a flannel in the fall or a skirt and knee socks, and a pair of cut offs in the summer. Nothing better then a basic crop or a basic tshirt, I feel like I can never have enough! 

Are you a fan of crop tops in the fall/winter? Would love to see how you style them if you are!

Casual Chic

Blazer// Zara (Similar one here)
Top// Southward Apparel
Skirt// LF Robertson Blvd
Key Necklace// The Giving Key
Shoes// Converse
This was a quick comfortable outfit I put together to run errands around the city and grab a quick breakfast at Urth Cafe with a friend. I purchased the ACL top from Southward Apparel after missing Texas a little bit and being envious of all the pictures my friends were posting at ACL last month (fun fact: I've only been to one concert in my life...bonus points if you guess which concert). I found this blazer in the back of my closet from Zara...I'm pretty sure I bought it in London when I was an intern at a fashion/lifestyle PR company. I remember being obsessed with blazers and American Apparel body suits that summer, and by the time I got back to the states I was over it. Now they are growing on me again and making a comeback in my daily outfits. Blazers are one of the best ways to give an outfit a pop of color, or to make a super casual outfit like this a bit more chic!

Have you ever worn an item so much or a style that you've burnt out on it and now it's starting to grow on you again?! I'd love to hear about it, or see pictures! Don't forget to email me your pictures or #llcstreet style on instagram to be featured on my blog and insta account on Wednesdays!

These are just a few blazers that have caught my eye!

November Necessities:It's all about the Accessories


November means it's holiday season! I start dreaming about pumpkin pie, black friday, sugar cookie tea  (yes this is a real thing, and it's magical), what it's like to live in a city where leaves turn colors, and how every pair of tights I own from last year seems to have a run in them. This month for my necessities section i'm focusing on some of my faves/crave accessories and shoes. 

Hats

As you can tell from my blog and Insta feed if you've been following, i'm maybe a bit obsessed with hats. To be honest this obsession is very recent. Before I cut my hair a year ago, I never ever wore hats. With my shorter textured hair, hats have a whole new feel on me, and they really complete an outfit! They also honestly make me feel more comfortable when I take pictures for the blog and instagram. Here are some hats currently on my wish list. 


Tights/Socks

I have ALWAYS been a lover of tights and socks. When I was five my mom used to dress me in mis matched lacy and slouchy socks, in high school I wore knee socks everyday with my school uniform and doc martins, and now I see them as the perfect way to keep wearing that skirt or dress all year round. I love to layer socks over tights and each other and use them to add a pop of color or texture to an outfit. These are some of favorites that I find to be a must for my closet.


Over the Knee Boots/Sneakers

Every season I am on the constant look out for the perfect over the knee boot! I have absolutely been in love with them for the last few seasons, but find it a struggle to find ones that stay up on me all day long and don't start slouching. I think it may be time to invest in a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, from what I hear they are perfection. I've also been starting to build a bit of a sneaker collection! I find that one of my favorite ways to wear them is with a simple leather skirt, sweatshirt, or tshirt. 


Bags

I really own a handful of bags and purses. I tend to just use the same ones over and over. I like to keep a big tote bag, small cross body bag, and a backpack or two. I also tend to stick with neutrals and blacks. In the last few months I've started to covet more and more purses, maybe i'll add some of these to my Christmas list! 


I know I haven't been keeping up with the blog in the last month, but when my applications are completed and submitted for grad school December 1st, I promise i'll get better! 

I have decided that I would like to a weekly street style section. I'd like to roam around town and take pictures and interview people who inspire my style, feature people from Instagram, and who send in email submissions! If you'd like to be featured send me an email (laprade.rebecca@gmail.com) with a picture of you in an outfit that makes you feel wonderful and confident, your name, occupation, and your current style must haves and must nots! Or you can tag me on instagram or #llcstreetstyle and every Wednesday i'll do a feature on my blog and Instagram. You guys can let me know if you love it and want me to keep it up, or I should ditch it.
