OOTD: relax, max.

I just freekin' love this weather, peeps! It's been in the high 70s/low 80s and SUN. LOTS OF SUN. Heart. Its putting me in the summer-state-of-mind, and when I feel like that, I feel like relaxin'and'maxin'. (I just made that up, with the help of 90's sitcom reruns, I think.)

Tee: Old Navy perfect fit tee shirt
Vest: Monrow cotton vest
Skirt: F21 striped body con skirt
Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors cage sandals
Necklace: Baker's multi-strand chain necklace

I feel like this is a very Cali-inspired outfit. Just seems so laid-back and chill, which is what I was going for. Sometimes, all I want to do is wear my sweatpants outside, so instead of succumbing to the badness that is flannels-in-public, I reach in my closet for the most comfortable pieces and see if they work. I got lucky today, lovies. It did. (and a little inspiration was found in Harper's Bazaar, who suggested the vest to be paired with a tight skirt. Nice.)


  1. Love love love. So casual look fab as always!

    Love the skirt and that necklace! I'm ready for summer...I just wish Utah was too!

  3. Love your skirt Justine - you are the cutest!

  4. I love those shoes - and I wish I could pull off a striped mini like you can.

    You totally tricked me because I thought you cut your hair in that 1st pic!
    These pieces work really well on you - not many people can do the stripes and look that good!

  6. I thought you cut your hair too in the first pic too!

    I like the burgundy with the grey stripes- its a nice contrast. and you are rocking the striped bodycon skirt, I'm too scared of what I'd look like in one to even try it on.

  7. haha! Nope, hair is still in tact, although I'm always tempted to chop it all off.
