Style Advice of the Week

If you know anything about me, you know that I am extremely proud of my state. My love for California has probably only increased since I have gone back East for college. For this reason, almost all the decorations in my room are California related and I have a large map of all the neighborhoods of San Francisco hanging above my bed.

The final stage of demonstrating my California pride is of course clothing. For about two years, I have been on the search for this “the city” shirt. Despite how awesome and retro inspired this shirt is, I have always been reluctant to buy it because of it's unflattering, masculine T-shirt shape. However, one day I walked into Brandy Melville and found the perfect alternative for these unflattering T-shirts. There I discovered a large array of crop tops and tank tops. This Fashionista is sporting Brandy Melville’s Dafne CA Palms Tank, but I am a personal fan of the Grizzly Bear Top that comes in a large array of shapes.

Admittedly, California has the most apparel out on the market. So if you don’t want to let out your inner California Girl while blasting some Katy Perry, you can always display your American pride with similar pieces or this amazing sweater I’ve been eying since July 4th. Brandy Melville also has tanks for this purpose and Urban Outfitters also is always ready for you to show off your red, white and blue. Finally, you can always pick up one of those lovely tourists shirts and cut them up following the instructions of one of your DIY pins on Pinterest.

Whichever top you choose, you’re sure to have an amazing day as you rep the place you love most.
