What She Wore: A Taste Of Edgy Americana

9th May 2012 / By Shannon Drake


It’s that strange time of year in Los Angeles when one day it feels like the dead of summer and the next day it’s windy and raining. This is the month-long period we call ‘spring.’ How ‘spring’ works in LA is like this: the last week of April is amazing and beautiful, and the next two weeks of May are cloudy off and on. Then the last two weeks of May are picturesque. FABshionistas all over the city break out their best sundresses and hats to parade around the boardwalk and Farmers’ Markets.

Just when you are all geared up for summer, the ‘June Gloom‘ sets in. June Gloom is a shameful secret us Angelinos hide from tourists. The whole month of June is crap. Cold, cloudy and gloomy. The weather keeps up like this until July when temps suddenly spike into the mid ’80s for the rest of the summer and everyone rejoices.

Well, this ensemble was my first taste of springwear! I wanted to channel some ‘Americana’ with my button-down, fedora and classic denim, but I’m not truly an ‘Americana’ kind of gal. So I turned up the edginess by selecting a sheer peach button-up from H&M and a pair of my old jeans (those are real holes, BTW! I earned those with over 10 years of loyal wear time.). I topped off my look with JustFab’s Kherington and Retro Rider Necklace, which is one of my all-time favorites. Then I grabbed our Trilogy bag in orange and a stray fedora that I got during our Style Night event in NYC.

Today was 50 degrees and overcast, and as I write about my fun summer outfit, I’m putting on my leather jacket. I guess it will be a few more weeks until I see my beloved ripped jeans again… le sigh.
