IG Wives Takeover Part 2 – LACMA

image

Happy Monday ladies! Today we continue on our IG Wives LA takeover with a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art aka LACMA.

LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States and attracts nearly a million visitors annually so making this one of our stops on the LA tour was a must.  Plus as a blogger and art lover, you can't visit LA without making a stop to see Chris Burden's Urban Light display. While I have seen these photographed a million and one times, I couldn't help but still stare in awe at the gorgeousness of the two hundred and two restored cast iron antique lamps. This is definintely a must see if you are in LA.

When we first started to pick looks for LA we knew a circle skirt was a must, especially since you ladies already know,  Jami and Sandra and I are all huge fans of them.

As soon as I saw the big bold yellow circles on this skirt I know it was a must in my life. For this shoot and for the daytime functions at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us I decided to style the skirt in a more work inspired look. Pairing it with a sheer ivory top that also had a subtle dot pattern was the perfect piece to compliment the look.

If you are looking for a show stopper article of clothing, this skirt is definitely it. Perfect for both summer and fall I received complements all day long with it.

For a more casual look for dinner that evening, I swapped out the top for a graphic t-shirt and the heels for flat sandals. Yes, versatility at its best!

Now, I will admit sizing was an issue with this skirt. While I typically wear a size 18, I did need to go up to a size 20 in this and probably could have done a 22 for a little more room in the waist. As a reference, I am traditional hourglass shape, hold some weight in my lower abdomen and I am wearing shapewear.
