Flare Fest

Flare Fest

I love Summer nights and the events that come along with them. Having a reason to wear a cool outfit at 8 pm is great. Actives in LA like The RoofTop Cinema, Summer Nights in Exposition Park, The Hollywood Bowl, or Hollywood Cemetery each have their own variations to play with.

While attending an event or just hanging out on a rooftop with friends, I take advantage of wearing some of my brightest colors, because they are less overwhelming at night and they bring out happy vibes.

For this look, I neutralized my bright colors with black to give the look a less casual vibe. Even though it's easier to achieve this by wearing dark colored pants, shorts or a skirt.

When wearing colors that are on opposite sides of the color wheel, it’s always a good idea to add something to the look that ties the colors together. In this case, my earrings, that where a hand-me-down from my mom 8 years ago, were the cornerstone for the two colors I chose for this look.

Two years ago I cut my mint colored pants into shorts and donated the remains to i:co to be recycled. Whenever I cut my shorts, I like to add a half inch slit on both sides so that if I choose to roll them up, they hold better, and don't look too tight on my thighs.

My purse was given to me by a dear friend, who’s friend was going to throw it away 4 years ago. Confused? It was a double hand me down, and I chose this bag for this look to honor all of the Summer festivals. This bag was perfect too because its color and style have a festival flare. (I have linked a different coral bag that would be functional of a festival below.)
