Melrose Place

melrose, los angeles, trendy, saturday, juice, melrose trading post, places to go, paul smith, farmer's marketIt’s hard not falling into the stereotypical Los Angeles routine after living in the city for three years. Finding new, trendy restaurants for Saturday’s brunch and must-go-on-adventures creates a pretty long bucket list of things to do.  This past weekend, my friend Lilly and I were able to check quite a few things off the list {some planned, some spontaneous} As many Los Angelians know, there is a vintage market called Melrose Trading Post on Sunday’s which I recommend to everyone {think vintage clothes, furniture, unique art, and succulents} I stumbled upon a great pair of vintage 501 Levi’s with the perfect amount of rips and tears.  Afterwards like any LA native would do, Lilly and I went to a new juice bar {LA Juice} where they serve all their juices and smoothies in eco-friendly glass bottles.  Melrose Place also has so many great shops, a large farmer’s market, and a bright pink wall that has become a hot spot for pictures.

So many of us, including myself, are attached to their hair to some degree.  Finding the perfect hairstyle, let alone hair stylist to create the perfect coif, is hard to find.  We can read reviews, listen to our friends, or even follow the advice of some lady at the supermarket who has great hair, but still there is some level of uncertainty. However once that perfect salon, hairdresser, and hairstyle is found, we get to bask in the lovely smell of shampoo, the feeling of a head massage, and a blowout that makes our hair stay fabulous for an unnatural amount of time.  The other day after getting a trim, I freshened up my outfit by pairing a fluffy cropped sweater with white cutoff shorts for a new take on a classic outfit.  I felt so bright and cheery in this spring sweater combo!

Spring Mix

A little of this and a little of that, and you’ve got yourself an eclectic spring outfit! Sometimes you don’t need a clear focus or follow a simple, instinctual way of pairing like tone fabrics together — but instead outfits can be composed like a stream of conscious, formed by your likes and dislikes.  Today, I wanted to wear this dress, felt like I hadn’t worn this belt in a long time, and wanted to wear a new vintage hat I had received from my sister.  Not really knowing what I was going for, I came up with this eclectic ensemble, creating the perfect little spring mix. I believe there is never a right nor a wrong when it comes to fashion!

I created a perfectly balanced spring street style look with my beloved leopard wedges, well-loved Hudson jeans, delicate silk blouse, and pearl earrings.

Sometimes an outfit just needs some simple, layered clothes and fun shoes.  I am a shoe person, what can I say.  After coming to the realization a couple years back that my wardrobe consists mainly of solid clothes and a wide variety of funky shoes, I’ve tried to branch out — buying striped shirts, printed pants, and pattern skirts.  However, time after time I find myself subconsciously throwing on the same ensemble.  It has become a pattern of simplicity with my feet doing all the talking.  Every time I walk into a department store, I locate the shoes first thing.  Maybe because I always thought my feet were my worst feature {making shoes the perfect distraction} or maybe it is just wired into my brain, but one thing is for sure, I will never get tired of finding that perfect one-of-a-kind shoe!

These photos were taken moments before a torrential rain storm struck the Central Coast of California {and I am not being one bit dramatic} I layered a sweater dress under a suede, moto jacket and paired them perfectly with funky patterned shoes, of course!

Rainy Day Neutrals

DSC_5849

There is something so lovely about the rain — the sound of rain drops hitting windows, the overcast sky, and the promise of a bright rainbow peaking through the clouds.  But I think most of all, it is the thought of being cozy {with layers, boots, and a hot latté in hand} There is something so comforting, yet spontaneous about the rain.  It comes unexpectedly, yet leaves without a warning.  I’m usually one who wants to brighten up gloomy, rainy days by wearing colored rain boots and accessories, however today I felt like blending in to the moody atmosphere.  I layered tone on tone neutrals, with scuffed up black boots, and just a touch of blue peaking out from under my monochromatic ensemble.  It does not rain too much in California {especially Los Angeles} but when it does, I like to cherish every drop, splash, and puddle.

One of the things I love about blogging is taking a risk with the unexpected.  I am your guinea pig, but I am happy to do it!  For the past couple years, optics have been transformed into a fashion statement.  Frames have become bolder and reflect the wearers personality and character.  Thick black wayfarers seem hipster, while sleek cat eyes a little more retro.  There is so much personality with this one little functional accessory.  Working on your frame game has become a thing.

I don’t have bad vision by any means, but after spending long amounts of time reading and staring at a screen, my eyes become tired.  This was the perfect excuse to get some glasses for reading {and wearing out and about on occasion} I originally chose tortoise, rectangular frames that were great and could go with everything — they are timeless, but not exactly trendy or fashionable. However, a couple weeks ago I stumbled upon these beauties {the color is what got me} When thick frames started to become a trend, they were mainly in darker colors, but with spring and summer coming along, dark can be a little too heavy and harsh. Opt for a lighter or even clear frame, like mine.  They are fun and bring so much brightness to your face!
