OOTD - Giant Pink Wall

'Giant Pink Wall' I screamed as Brian and I were cruising down Melrose Avenue during a recent trip to California.  The answer to every cutesy blogger's dream, a giant pink wall is our kryptonite and as soon as I spotted this rose masterpiece it was everything I could do not to jump out of the moving vehicle and run over to it and strike a pose. This outfit is typical of my Californian style - easy pieces that you can pack into a single carry on luggage for two weeks of travel. Shift dresses are such an easy travel piece and this grey number from Aritzia is no exception.  Typically I opt for large brimmed hats while traveling but due to the brutal heatwave LA was experiencing on our visit, a silk scarf was a much cooler option.  Notice the wedge heels?  Not your typical Petite Noob style, but I was wearing my bathing suit under this number for an afternoon pool party and nothing makes a girl feel better than a pair of sky high heels with your bikini.  Hey when in West Hollywood, right?

Dress - Aritzia, Scarf - Thrifted, Wedge Heels -H&M
Purse - Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses - Céline 'Tilda'

I had mentioned before that wedge heels are typically not my style of choice, but after teetering about LA in these bad boys my mind has changed.  There's something so empowering about gaining an extra 6 inches of height without having to sacrifice on comfort. It may be my short girl problems coming through, but I'm hooked. With the seventies style playing huge for Fall, I suspect that there will be many a platform in my horizon.

What are your thoughts on the shift dress?  Perfect for travel, or do you have another piece of clothing that is your go-to?  Would you also run across 4 lanes of traffic in LA for the sake of a giant pink wall? No?  Let me know!
