jacket and boots: forever 21, jeans: abercrombie & fitch, t-shirt: american apparel
"Down on the west coast they got a sayin'..." are the words that have been running through my mind the past two days. I'm sure this doesn't even need to said, but those are of course the beginning lyrics in Lana del Rey's new single "West Coast". Lana always manages to make the most captivating music. I swear, I can switch from "Ride", to "National Anthem", to "American", and each time be entranced by the music/lyrics, and I'm left feeling like I am the person in the song, or at least want to be. This new single is no different. From the moment it begins I already feel caught up in its mix of reggae and smooth guitar. Then when it slows down, well, "oh baby, oh baby, I'm in love."
I know I've mentioned several times how Lana is a huge influence on my personal style, and that proves true again in this post. Right after my first listen to "West Coast" my immediate thoughts were "Ok, where is my leather jacket?". Add a white v-neck, jeans, and leather boots to finish the main look. Then honestly, it is probably best accessorized with a bottle of Jack, a pack of cigarettes, and sea salt in your hair.
I'm sure its more than clear that today's song at the end of the post is "West Coast". Go ahead and get lost in it already.
