#STORIESLA: MY LA STORY

#LASTORIES: MY LA STORY || THECHICITALIAN || My take on LA style with & Other Stories

This week I visited the & Other Stories store in Amsterdam because I wanted some new casual pieces for my curated wardrobe. I ended up buying a couple of items that remind me of LA style and my trip to LA. Today I wanted to share my LA story for the #StoriesLA competition.

ROAD TRIP TO LA
Two years ago I visited LA during my road trip. It was our last stop of the trip so we could recharge from the whole trip and explore all that LA has to offer. We had the cutest little Airbnb, we went to San Diego for Comic-Con and enjoyed the beach. The relaxing ending we hoped for.

A place I loved when we visited LA were the Venice canals. I did not take a lot of pictures when we were there {I think because the water was low} but I remembered walking around and imagining how it would be to live there. In these photo’s I wanted to use that vibe by schooting on one of the many bridges in Amersfoort.

LA STYLE
When I think of LA style, it’s all about looking effortless, stylish mixed with casual and a laid back attitude. It’s about simple summer wardrobe essentials and adding cool, trendy pieces. What I remembered from the weather is that during the day it would get super hot but by the end of the afternoon the temperatures would drop. I would wear shorts or a flowy dress with a jacket or a cashmere sweater.

Keeping this in the back of my mind I put together this look that I feel represents the LA style. Over here it’s way colder then when I was in LA, so no shorts. Instead I went with black jeans and a band inspired tee from & Other Stories {one of my favorite spring trends}. I obviously couldn’t forget cool sunglasses, stylish boots and iced coffee {not from Alfred Coffee but Bagels & Beans is my go-to}.

#STORIESLA + & OTHER STORIES
And now & Other Stories has opened a design atelier in Los Angeles. To celebrate this, they’re giving away a trip for two to Los Angeles. Even though I saw and experienced a lot during my last tip to LA, there is still a lot to discover {let’s be real, mainly food haha}.
