Flirty, Frilly & Off-The-Shoulder at Cecconi's
"That's so LA." This is a descriptive phrase that a lot of people use to describe what certain people wear, act, or to describe a specific place. But to someone outside of Los Angeles, what exactly does it mean?! Southern California, and specifically Los Angeles is known for having a very laidback, yet trendy vibe. Located in West Hollywood, Cecconi's perfectly embodies that casual glamour that the rest of the world only fantasizes about.
If you're dining at Cecconi's, there's just one rule: Look good. Look chic. And make it look effortless.
What I love about Cecconi's is that you can pair something casual with a dressier piece and still have it be pretty and appropriate for the restaurant's upscale atmosphere. I wanted to go for more of a relaxed, flirty look. I wore dark denim skinny jeans and a pale blue and white off-the-shoulder ruffle top (actually by Brandy Melville!) To dress it up I wore my favorite nude ankle-strap heels (you know, the ones that look like Stuart Weitzman, except they're Steve Madden) which really pulled together the look and gave it more of a dressier vibe.
This outfit has been one of my favorites so far that I've worn to brunch. Cecconi's atmosphere for brunch is basically my ideal situation for getting dressed up. You don't have to overdo it, but you have to just make sure you're wearing something trendy. But not too trendy! Make it your own. I personally love mixing simple staple pieces (like skinny jeans) and adding that flirty touch with a tasteful cropped shirt, something off-the-shoulder or just by wearing certain accessories.
Like I said, it's all about your ensemble looking effortless!
