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.
Everyone knows I’m such an LA girl; from my personal style to my lifestyle, it’s pretty much the definition of LA. So I’ve been super ecstatic to know that downtown is going under renovations with retail stores, bars, hotels, and restaurants. Many “it” stores are opening up on Broadway that will help revive downtown . I definitely cannot. wait. for. that.
ACNE being one of the first to sign up and open one of their biggest stores yet…finally, we have one in the west coast! Just across the street, A.P.C is opening up as well as the ACE Hotel who is just about to open. Urban Outfitters took over the the old Rialto theater and transformed into a cool space. Pretty exciting stuff happening in downtown and it’s only a matter of time that it’ll cause a chain reaction for other retailers to open up shop.
So we decided to check out the couple stores that have opened and explore downtown on a sunday afternoon. It was such a treat!
