This week I will be doing a round up of my outfits from my recent trip to Los Angeles. I wore this look with black flats on the flight, then swapped them out for these insane heels for a night out in DTLA. I love this look for traveling because it is incredibly comfortable, and effortlessly chic. It is perfect when you’re having to run from place to place, which was my life during this quick trip. I met up with Ryan Chua pretty much strait from the airport to snap a few pictures and to grab a quick dinner at Urth Caffé (try the Caravan Kale Salad and a Japanese Tea Latté). Ryan is a well-known street style photographer, odds are you’ve seen some of his pictures from NYFW, and we used to work together all the time when he lived in SF. However, he recently moved to L.A. and is absolutely killing it, so it was fun to get together and catch up!
I have been dying for a vacation. Roaming through the streets of Italy or picnicing in front of the Eiffel Tower, it is just what my soul has been yearning for. We are always looking for a different place or a different time that is better and more enjoyable than our current state. Too seldom do we look into our own backyard to feed our desires, and inspire us in ways that we believe travel can only do. Images keep popping up on my news feed of couples wine tasting in Tuscany and exploring the old architecture in Europe. Little did I know I could have a similar experience, without traveling across the world to get there.
Good morning, and happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all coming from a wonderful weekend! I fall more in love with San Francisco each and every day and feel so fortunate to live here. In a lot of ways it reminds me of Europe, take for example this tiny alleyway that I walk past every day to run errands and to grab my green juice or smoothie from Earthbar. This city is so charming and I am constantly in awe that I actually get to live here! I will be doing a post of my favorite things to do and favorite places to go in the city very soon!
This may be premature, but fall is right around the corner! I’ve been gravitating towards, these rich, rusty hues in anticipation of the changing seasons. Mustard yellow has always been a favorite of mine. You can’t go wrong with it. This is the most insanely soft tee I own and if i’m not wearing it to sleep in, i’m throwing it on for a casual night out. I love that it has longer sleeves too. There is nothing I hate more than wimpy little sleeves, and i’ve found this to be the perfect length! I’m heading out with one of my good friends to work on a fun project around the city today. So make sure to follow along on Snapchat: TheCityBlonde
Good morning, everyone! Yay! It’s finally wine Wednesday. And girl, I need it.
This started out as a trip to the sunflower fields near Sacramento. We were so excited, as we had been seeing so many pictures of them lately, and drove a couple of hours out of the city to see them. To our surprise, we arrived to a field of dead sunflowers. It was kind of funny, kind of sad and we were left sitting there in the middle of nowhere questioning what we should do with an hour left of sun. There was a row of trees across the highway, which was intriguing because you couldn’t see what was behind them. Lo and behold we snuck behind the trees to find the most beautiful sight. There was a large field of tomatoes being farmed, with huge tomatoes in every color. Okay, maybe I’m weird and one of the only people in the universe that would find that site beautiful. And it’s mostly because I’m OBSESSED with tomatoes. Anyways… there was also a cornfield that stretched as far as the eye could see and bushes of beautiful flowers.
