Summer in Winter.

summerinwinter7

I’ve always said that no matter where my next adventure is, LA always feels like home. One of the main reasons why I don’t see myself (although I’m completely open to the idea of living in Paris/Barcelona/New York! Heck yes!) living anywhere else is partly because LA has, hands down, the best weather. Right now, it feels like summer in winter and I’m not mad at that.

Sometimes I want to experience real fall or winter where I can dress accordingly and layer up, but at the end of the day I much rather be in a striped tee, bare legs and sandals.

Since it’s been feeling a lot like summer on my side, I’ve been on a flower and fruit craze. I sit outside my office in this cute wooden chair x table combo, take in the rays, eat fruit and work the day away! It’s the easiest way to get inspired.

Yesterday was the perfect example of that. How you you work and stay inspired during the winter?

I always have fresh flowers in the office; a trip to the farmer’s market or flower mart is one of my favorite things to do once or twice a week!

Strawberries are my favorite fruit… smoothies, desserts, or just by themselves. Nom.

    Love all the fruit. I can’t get enough of fruit, ever.
    That would definitely inspire me as well. But I agree with the weather. Cali weather is ideal.

    You are so very lucky to live in CA. And yes, the weather is nothing short of amazing there. Technically, you could wear fall/winter type things in the early mornings/late evening times. It blows my mind that you guys can still wear shorts right now. I live in Houston and although it doesn’t snow, it can get bitterly cold. I love a good cup of espresso or warm tea in the winter time. I love decorating my home to feel cozy and inviting and love getting fresh flowers to display too. I figure that if you have to stay indoors, you might as well make it as pretty and comfortable as possible :)

    I just spent a few weeks in California and I know exactly what you mean!
    I am never mad about the lack of cold weather. I live on the east coast and that cold Atlantic weather is something I don’t miss at all when I’m away.
    Beautiful photos!

    Oh I agree with LA and the weather, I used to live in LA and loved the sunny weather all year round. Now I am back home in Iceland and it’s pretty much cold all year round, though the summers can be really nice – but nothing beats LA weather x

    Jules, I’m living in Moscow and it’s so hard to be here in winter. I can’t feel myself free in winter like at summer, you know, can’t feel myself happy like at summer. This is life awaiting summer. I dream so much to move to LA for two years! You are very lucky to live in this beautiful place! I think thousands people in our country dreaming to live in LA because In the winter you do not live, you survive.

    Lovely, colorful photos! I always have strawberries in my fridge and a bouquet of flowers in my room..
    You are quite lucky living in LA :)

  50. Rachel Comment #52

    Oh I miss California Strawberries! I totally get what you mean. While London is home and I’m glad to be back living here, I found it so much easier to get inspired with the weather almost always being beautiful when I was living in Los Angeles. I miss being able to wear striped tees, shorts and sandals all year around too! And your missing chic sunglasses. Since about the end of September I’ve only worn them driving to protect against the Winter sun in my eyes when I’m trying to see the road :(

  51. Paula Capel Comment #53

    Wow… I live in Barcelona and the weather is really good too! I wish going to LA soon!

    Very nice pictures. I wish I would live in LA because living in Oldenburg /Lower Saxony/ Germany means f…ing freezing from october to march, sometimes – with bad luck- until April or May. So enjoy the Sun while Iam freezing in the Snow. Poor me. ;)

    It’s hard to keep motivated in the winter. I always want to post outfits outside but the weather doesn’t ever cooperate. It’s either snowing or it’s too cold. I always look at your blog for inspiration. I also look at pinterest and instagram for some inspiration.

  76. MY MAGIC FASHION Comment #79

    I don´t like winter! Outside is so cold, that I want to stay home, drink hot chocolate and read a book(or your blog<3). Winter in LA must be amazing!
