I'm all about functional clothing. Anyone who knows me knows that I went through a phase where I exclusively shopped at American Apparel. For this look, I wanted to be extremely casual all while pulling things together to create an attractive look. I enjoyed the fact that each piece is transitional and can work with other things that I have in my closet. I'm also a huge fan of mixing both versions of my personal style ~ dressing down/casually always calls for a good time especially in this Southern California heat! Do you have any style tricks to mix multiple style elements? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
