A touch of Cali

Tee - Brandy Melville. Jeans - Topshop. Sandals - Daniel Footwear. Bag - River Island. Necklaces - Empty Casket. Rings - ASOS, Pandora and Morocco souks. Watch - Olivia Burton. Sunglasses - eBay.

Help. I think I'm obsessed. With Brandy Melville, that is. This Italian brand is inspired by the chilled lifestyle of Los Angeles, with the Brandy Girl persona being described as 'feminine with an urban twist'. Just what I like to hear. 

When I was travelling America for the summer two years ago with my family, I noticed how laidback and relaxed California girls were. I visited San Francisco and Los Angeles, and everyone was in tees, shorts and sandals. They didn't dress as creatively as people in cities like London or Paris, but I could see why. It's warm all year round in California, surely the only thing you'd want to wear are tank tops and shorts. Brandy Melville takes that in mind, with their loose fitting summer dresses and playful slogan tees with vintage details.

So taking that all on board, it's not completely ridiculous that I had a little spree when I visited the store in Carnaby Street last month, and coming away with five items, right? Comfort is key. 

Aah take me back to California. Forever trying to embrace the Cali girl vibe in London.
