Fallen Shadows











Mossimo top via Target (similar here), Forever 21 shorts (similar here), H&M kimono (similar here), Madden Girl sandals, Dharma Co. sunglasses c/o
Photography by my sister

Impromptu photoshoots are the best--you (conveniently) have a great outfit on and the scenery is beyond perfection, not to mention you just so happen to have a camera on hand (and photographer, of course). Basically sums up how these pictures came about. This was one of many Cali adventures I embarked on with my two sisters on a hot, hot summer day to DTLA. I've always seen and heard about the wonderfully majestic Walt Disney Concert Hall but I just had to witness the uniquely crafted slate blues for myself. As we were wandering around the incredibly tall maze of a structure, we came across this quaint outdoor theater on the rooftop beside the park. The light fixtures and trees created playful shadows against the wall and we just knew we had to have a photoshoot with the beautiful backdrop.

I played with different shades of blue in this particular outfit since the kimono had an ombre effect. I wanted to keep the rest of the look simple since the cardigan already had a lot going on and I don't know about you, but during the summer I like to keep things simple since it's too hot out to wear much. The bit of scalloped edges on the shorts and double strap detail on the top were subtle ways to add a little extra to the outfit. I kept my hair slicked back for a chic look and threw on my hoops and favorite sunnies.

I hope you're all having a wonderful first week of September!

Summertime blues,
Mai Sunshine

  1. You look absolutely gorgeous in these photos, Mai! I especially love the fun ombre on your kimono - definitely picture perfect. Reading your post made me miss California and now I'm aching to visit home for a bit!

    It was such a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the NOLCHA event and I can't wait for our coffee date!
