Let's be honest: she can do no wrong!

1. Faux Leather Skinny Pants
2. The slouchy sweater
3. Cable Knits: In basic colors
4. Black Blazer: Oversized or mens is preferable
5. Black booties: Try a low heel option for everyday use, your feet will thank you!
6. Fun Scarfs: The cheapest way to prep for fall!
7. Crisp white long sleeve button up: The options are endless
8. A long camel coat

Life In The Tropics

Okay, who am I kidding, I am stuck in LA, pale as can be, no tropics in sight. When I saw this palm tree top I was mesmerized, all of my daydreaming had come true in a single piece of clothing. (Don't you love when that happens) Now. no matter where I am, I'll feel like I'm vacationing in Bali, surrounded by palm trees.

Street Art meets Street Style

I can't even begin to explain how in love I am with Downtown Los Angeles. When I first moved to California 6 years ago I decided to venture out to Downtown and all I can say is that I was not impressed. Now, downtown is booming with amazing rooftops, hotels, views and the restaurants are out of this world. This past weekend I decided to visit a cafe near the arts district. I was so happily surprised to find some of the most amazing street art pieces. Hope you enjoy them too!
Obsessed with this amazing Statement Necklace from Alpha & Omega!

What are some of your favorite Downtown LA spots?

Your Guide to the Perfect LA Summer


1. Beaches:
This may seem like a no-brainer. But when you live and work in Los Angeles, you can't seem to find time to head out to the beach. In my search for a great nearby beach I have found a few that stand out, but it all depends on whether you like an entertaining crowded spot, or a lot of privacy. For a fun filled beach adventure I would choose touristy spots like Santa Monica Beach, Venice Beach, and Huntington Beach. If you are looking for a more relaxed vacay, Zuma Beach near Malibu, or Newport Beach.


2. Movies in the Park:
Without a doubt one of my favorite things to do in Summer. My absolute favorite spot is the Hollywood Cementary, but in the past years the number of outdoor movie spots has grown significantly. Here is a pretty comprehensive list Clueless + Food Trucks= Count me IN!

3. Ice Cream:
This is for the times when you feel like your face could just melt off, ICE CREAM. Luckily, if you are in Los Angeles you have a plethora of good options. Some of my favorites include: Sprinkles Ice Cream, MILK Ice Cream Macaron Sandwiches, Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck, and my new favorites at the Anaheim Packing District: Hans' Homemade Ice Cream, and Popbar.


4. First Fridays Venice:
Warm summer nights, 50+ food trucks of every cuisine imaginable, beautiful people, and a whole lot of smiles. Nuff said right? Even though this only happens the first Friday of the month, its worth the wait.


5. Flea Markets:
This one is more of a year-round suggestion, but flea markets are a must when visiting LA. If you want to add some original, one of a kind pieces to your wardrobe and home some of my favorites are the Melrose Trading Post open every Sunday, only $3 to get in. If you want an even larger selection, that will take you all day to go through, the Santa Monica Airport Flea Market is just bananas!


6. Picnics:
One of my absolute favorite things to do is discover a new park, or green area to picnic in. Living in a city sometimes deprives you from just sitting, relaxing, and enjoying nature with no distraction. There are so many areas to picnic in, some of my favorites are Echo Park, The Griffith Park, and i'll even picnic at the Getty or the Huntington Library.

7. Outdoor Shopping:
There is no need to deal with fluorescent lighting during the summer, especially with all these cute spots to shop outdoors. If you are visiting some of my favorites are: The Americana at Brand, The Grove, if you are in the LA area. The Irvine Spectrum, The Anti Mall in Costa Mesa if you are in the OC, and Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga if you are in the San Bernardino area.

8. Art Museums:
This one is a tough one for me to summarize, there are so many good options. I understand we can't beat cultural hubs like New York and Chicago on this one, but we do have some good ones. My top must sees are LACMA, MOCA (there are three of them, all worth a visit), The Getty (Both in LA and Malibu), Griffith Observatory (not necessarily an art museum, but definitely a sight to see), Norton Simon in Pasadena, Santa Monica Museum of Art. and the Hammer Museum.

9. Drive up the Coast:

Driving up the Pacific Coast Highway will make you feel like a true Californian. Believe me, the scenic route north will take you approximately 30-50min longer, but its worth every minute. What I love most about California is the wide range of road trips you can take. If you are looking for a 2 hour excursion north, visit Santa Barbara or go wine tasting in Ojai Valley, if you want to venture farther up north lets say 5 hours a great place to visit is the Hearst Castle, and if you are really feeling adventurous why not drive all the way up to San Francisco, approximately 7 hours away.

10. Foodie Adventures:
There are no surprises that there are PLENTY of places to chow down in LA. Since this city is such a large melting pot, whatever food you are looking for, you will find it. Yelp, although not always 100% accurate, is a great way of finding spots. Since it would literally take up 5 paragraphs to name off all of my favorite restaurants, I will just name my favorite one: Bottega Louie in downtown LA.


Hope you have the PERFECT LA SUMMER, who knows you may even run into some celebrities!
