Some like it hot | summertime vintage lookbook | Backbite x Levi’s

During my last trip to LA, I scored a killer pair of Levi’s at Melrose Trading Post. And, I have been so excited about them ever since!

They’re a basic high-rise pair with a light wash and a skinny fit, so, I can style them with pretty much anything. Plus, they couldn’t be more comfortable! Lately, I have been loving bodysuits, especially with all my high-rise pants and shorts; they just make the process of picking out an outfit so much simpler.

Backbite, an LA-based vintage retailer, designs super unique bodysuits from recycled t-shirts. I love, love, love how they put a sexy spin on such a masculine piece; it’s such a stylish yet laid-back look with a why-didn’t-I-think-of-that sort of appeal.

Combining the two pieces is one of the easiest ways to look casual, yet put-together–especially on those lazy summer days when you don’t feel like trying.

I polished the revamped Harley Davidson tee and secondhand Levi’s with my go-to metal belt, which is *such* a staple in my wardrobe no matter what the season.

And for a pop of color (I’m cringing to myself for using that cliché, but it’s fitting here, so…), I added my new fuchsia slides. These babies have a small block heel that gives me the perfect boost–great for both daytime and nighttime.

During the day especially, I do my best to avoid appearing “overdone,” so I kept makeup to a minimum. But with a smoky eye (and a faux fur jacket!), this look can easily be worn for a night out. To spice it up even more, I would love to layer my fishnet bodysuit from Danielle Guizio NY underneath. Of course no night-out outfit is complete without a few sparkly bracelets or statement earrings 😉
