{STYLE} Palm Tree Paradise






As I inch closer to yet another anniversary with NYC (11-years since I landed in the City That Never Sleeps for a season-long rendezvous, and 10-years since I started planting some roots), I still hold Los Angeles, my hometown, deep in my heart. I have a complex, love/hate relationship with LA, but it's the place I was raised, the city my family emigrated to when they left their respective homelands, their adoptive locale, and the page on my weather widget that I look at, enviably, whenever I need a reason to question why I moved to New York in the first place. The same way LA became home for my family, there's no question that New York has become my home - no matter how much this past winter left me kicking and screaming. Still, the colors, weather, and waving palm trees that are trademarks of the city continue to inspire my style sensibility - and the pink-and-green combination has always been a point of weakness for me! (I give full credit to a childhood of dreaming of the color palette from that hotel that shall not be named). Just a dozen days until I set foot onto those palm tree lined streets again...

  2. I had this skirt, and rethought the top! The 14 was so big on me, I was excited but then my top half is still wierd right now! I love the way you style this and I hope Asos comes out with more versions for this because I still want one as a set. Love love the pink additions to it.

  3. Oh man! Have you tried a smaller size?? My only issue with the top is that I definitely cannot wear a bra with it... which i guess turned out okay.

  11. I love to find things that require that I DO NOT wear a bra. They're kinda the best.

  15. Lucky you Cass, i'm a 44H, I can't "not" wear a bra ever! Nic, that's was why I didn't get the top. I wanted the entire set, but i didn't want my bra showing, but I sent it back, i kinda want to go back for the 12 and see, it's such a good quality fabric and such a nice print. I'm waiting to see if they come out with other prints since this one is doing well.
