A Pop of Color

The mercury is rising here in Los Angeles and I am trying to find ways to dress for season while keeping relatively cool. I hate when the weather jumps around like this from hot to cold and then back again... it's quite bipolar.

I had my eye on this lace top from Ann Taylor LOFT since it came out as I thought it would serve as a nice pop of something different under blazers in the winter and a piece that could stand alone in the warmer months. When I went to the mall yesterday to finish up some Christmas shopping I decided to get it as a little holiday gift  for myself. Okay, that was a lie. I specifically went to the mall while doing errands because the little "find in store" option on the LOFT website said they had one in stock close to me and I thought it was fate. 

Today I spent way more time with my blazer off than on due to the heat, but it was nice to have something fun and festive like this lace peplum top underneath. For a little flair and in keeping with the holiday spirit I paired this with a red bag and a purple blazer. The red soles on my Louboutin Cate boots also serves for another unexpected pop of color. Like the temps here they are red hot!

  1. The lace is so lovely paired against the purple blazer Katie!

    1. Thank you! I thought the purple would be something different, even though I was tempted by a black blazer!

  2. These are most certainly my favorite boots!

  3. Love this outfit and love love love the top! p/s: I've totally done the same with Find in Store for items and running errands. ;)


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
