Old Navy & People.com are brining together bloggers from all 50 states to show how style is interpreted and represented in each state. I’m excited to be able to represent the great state of California. The Golden State. I was born in LA and lived there until I moved to New York in my 20s and now I live in San Diego so I think I have a decent understanding of California style. While New York has a more tailored and semi-preppy style to it, Southern California leans more heavily towards a laid back vibe. Because the weather is great all year long, with most days seeing nothing but sun, it isn’t uncommon to have a lot of short sleeve shirts and go sockless in any month of the year. Since I have moved to San Diego from Los Angeles I have found it to be even more casual, and definitely influenced by vintage surf, skate, and music culture. But that’s still no excuse to look sloppy!
Old Navy has great options for Southern Californians (and all states, really), and I particularly love their new skinny fit pants because they fit just right and have been much improved over previous years. They also have something for everyone in my family. The baby boy stuff is ridiculously awesome and so on point for what I want my boy to wear. And I can’t complain about the chambray dress my beautiful wife is wearing. If you haven’t checked out Old Navy lately, I really encourage you to. What you find may surprise you! And head over to the #50Styles50States site and upload your state inspired looks. Or post on social and use the tag #50Styles50States and let’s see how you represent your state!
