A few days ago a friend of mine and Drew's said "It's one of those days that feels like 5 all day". You know, those type of days where the clouds are hovering so if feels like the sun is about to set all day long. For some strange reason those are some of my favorite days. I call them gray days. If there was one inspiration for this outfit (other than my love of snake skin lately) it is the gray day.
All in all it was a beautiful gray day driving up and down the Malibu coat. It's funny just about 10 minutes outside of LA and you can feel like you are on the Central Coast.
Fun fact: I have been looking for a great bow-tie shirt for a while now (yet to be found). I really thought the perfect bow-tie would complete the 60's 70's vibe I was going for. To create the appearance of the bow-tie shirt take a button up shirt that has a wraparound fabric belt. Wrap the tie under the collar of the shirt and tie at the top buttoned button. Just a little closet trick.
