The Griffith Observatory, nestled high atop the mountains of Griffith Park, is one of Los Angeles’ most famous landmarks. The Observatory offers sweeping views of the entire LA landscape, cliffs to the ocean, and so, clearly, is the perfect location to show off some new looks.
Apparently Elsa forgot to inform me that she was casting a wintery chill over LA last week, so instead of the late April flip-flops and shorts I was expecting to don, I was instead forced into a leather jacket to keep from freezing my ass off. I made it work, but a word to the wise: the Observatory roof turns into a horrifying wind tunnel whenever wind speeds reach over 10 mph.
But when the weather does turn on you unexpectedly, here’s what threads to rock that still have the seasonal vibe, but are warm enough to keep you cozy.
I can’t get enough of denim shirts. You can dress them up or down, and when you throw a cool leather jacket over top, you have an effortlessly cool look. And then pairing them with aviators? Fuhgeddaboutit. Instant James Dean. I complemented the look with a pair of grey slacks and – of course – Sperry’s, because they’re my ish AND it’s springtime, so helllloooo nautical vibes!
What do you guys think?
Please excuse the windblown ‘do. BIG THANKS to H&M and Forever 21 for the outfit!
