Venice Street Style

You had me at wide leg jean. Looks like a super stylish denim but wears like sweatpants! I am a super fan of the turtleneck and have been buying the Tissue Tee style turtlenecks for years. To me, a turtleneck is a fab stylish statement, a very New England/East Coast posh put together look without trying too hard…in a good way… ha ha! AKA super chic, effortless and just overall fab! Pair your effortless turtleneck with a long necklace or pull your hair back to show your elongated neck with a bold statement earring. The turtleneck can always be dressed up or down! Don’t sleep on this winter clothing staple!

I am loving experiencing all the different neighborhoods in LA and love everything happening down on Abbott Kinney in Venice. Especially all of the cool and edgy graffiti. What better way to showcase jean on jean than with a pop of NYC!
