Casual Color

I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend!  Mine was filled with fun, as I spent time with family & some of my closest friends.  We took in a movie (Sabrina) at the Hollywood Forever on Saturday for my friend's bday celebration, had tacos at my SIL's house Sunday night, and rode our bikes throughout Santa Monica and Venice on Memorial Day. 


For the movie Saturday night, I chose to dress in layers, as we had to sit outside, and it got quite cold.  I also wanted to keep my look casual for attending the outdoor movie.  I chose to pair red jeans with a loose-fitting black sweater, black converse & chunky necklaces.  What do you guys think of my pairing?








Pants: H&M (Similar here)
Sweater: H&M (Great oversize one here- and amazing price!!)
Button Down Shirt (Worn under): Gap (Old, similar here)
Bag: Gucci (vintage)
Jewelry: Earrings- Tarina Tarantino (old, but how awesome are these??); Necklaces- Marni at H&M; 
Neon Spike Bracelet- Forever 21 (Sold out, another cool neon spiked one here)
Shoes: Converse

AND PLEASE Don't forget to follow on Facebook (where I post sneak peeks of my DIY projects), on BlogLovin' and now on LookBook!

    Hope you are having another great day filled with bike rides and friends! :)
