London Girl.

Taking you back a few weeks back when I was visiting London with the lovely French Connection team.

This was my first time experiencing nice weather in London, it was hot & sunny, so I was ecstatic to wear short shorts and floral tops to explore the city- the kinda look I’m used to wearing because of LA. I usually overpack because you never know but was extremely proud of myself for packing rather light on this trip.  It was too light that I forgot to pack an extra pair of shorts. I figured that whatever I forgot to pack, I can always just buy, especially when it’s a big city like London because the shopping is insanely good. That was a good reason to do a little shopping. We hit up Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Kings Road and Notting Hill. Definitely picked up so great buys!

Polka Dot.

I will always have a soft spot for polka dots. They’re just so cute and love how fun it is to wear them. I usually stick to black & white polka dots, but scored this chambray + white polka dot shirt during the nordstrom sale a couple weeks ago! Score!

Boots and jeans are totally making me crave fall… well kinda.  I can’t ever get tired of summer!

Excited for a mini getaway this weekend, follow me on instagram to find out where I’m heading! xo

During the day, I like to stroll around my favorite LA places during the weekend. We had a yummy breakfast in Larchmont at Bungalow- definitely one of my go-to places on the westside. They have the BEST red velvet pancakes! Afterwards, we headed to see the new APC store on Melrose Pl. They re-located and revamped the whole store… you’ll see below how cool the inside of the store looks like (inspiration interior for sure!) We wrapped up our day picking flowers and catching a late night movie! Love fun, mellow weekends like that.

Knotted.

Sometimes it’s the tiniest of details that can take a boring outfit into something more fun and unexpected. When I threw this on, I felt a little boring- you know just black & green, nothing special.

Before I ran out the door, I added the knot to the tank to add some interesting detail. I loved it and felt a bit less boring.

Even if its a knot on your tee or wearing a body chain as a hidden accessory, it can definitely make your outfit pop.

DURINGTHEDAY01During the day I spent it running around town stopping by a few of my favorite places in downtown. First stop was visiting my good friend Anine at her awesome showroom. She had a pretty sweet collection of blush tones. Wanted to take one of each!

After we hung out at her space, we headed to the Ace Hotel just a few blocks away to eat and catch up on their sick roof top. Their interior is something I wish I had in my backyard. I wrapped up my day later that night by taking my Aussie friend who was in town to one of LA’s fave restaurant, Bottega Louie.
