Living in Los Angeles it’s only natural that almost all of the people in your friend group work in either music, fashion or more likely the entertainment industry. We only have one friend who doesn’t fit the mold and he helps run his family’s winery. LA really does echo all of the stereotypes you’ve heard. Just yesterday I was on set to shoot a cameo for a new comedic web series my friend wrote and stars in. It’s called Hell is for Fashion Bloggers and I’m sure you can imagine what it’s all about. This was the look I wore for my role as a fashion blogger. I’ve also been wearing versions of this look to meetings the last few days. I love the mix of various fall trends done in dark subtle hues to keep the look grounded. This little backpack bag is probably my favorite new accessory. Be prepared to see it frequently on the blog and hopefully abroad as Sam and I are beginning to plan our next adventure. We would love to hear your suggestions on where we should go next. Let us know in the comments and have a wonderful day.

Yesterday Sam and I were treated to a lovely staycation at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. We’ve been to the property for events and parties but have never stayed overnight. Our room had sweeping views of the city and we took full advantage of enjoying it.  We cozied up on our balcony with a glass of wine and watched the sunset over the LA skyline.

I’m very obviously loving the head to toe pink trend. It doesn’t hurt that I already have an entire section of my closet dedicated to pink. I am shameless about my love for the color and I couldn’t resist picking up this cozy sweater from ACNE. Next I’m hoping to find a blush toned suit to round out my fall wardrobe.

Which color are you crushing on this season?

A few photos we snapped during golden hour in Cambria. I’m loving marigold as the perfect, luscious fall color. I’m also living in my Levi’s. They go with everything and I’m having a hard time wearing anything but my perfectly worn in jeans.

Is there a piece you absolutely love and wear constantly?

If you’ve been following my Instagram @LateAfternoon, you know that Sam and I along with a couple of our friends escaped to the sleepy coastal town of Cambria for the weekend. As with most of our trips, it was a spur of the moment getaway. One that was decided on the night before simply because we were all itching to get out of town and Gregory’s aunt offered her beautiful beach house for us to enjoy.

 Friday morning we kicked off the day with a visit to Barry’s Bootcamp, which I was sure would murder me but here I stand ready to go back for another brutal workout this week. Next we packed a few bags, picked up our friends and headed North through wine country. Our drive was leisurely. We pulled into various coastal lookouts, stopped for a late lunch and some wine tasting in Paso Robles, watched the sun set over the rolling hills, finally arriving in Cambria in the early evening. This is very much how the rest of the trip unfolded. Saturday I made a big breakfast of eggs, avocado toast, and buttery breakfast potatoes for everyone to enjoy. We spent the rest of the day wandering around the town popping into Open Houses and Estate Sales. At sunset we strolled along Moonstone Beach ending the day with a trip to the movies. Our Sunday was even lazier as we did nothing more than buy matching Cambria sweatshirts and enjoyed a long brunch in town. We all had some work to do so Sunday afternoon was spent taking photos and working. Our friends made us a lovely dinner and we all settled in for the night to watch movies on the couch. It was the relaxing weekend getaway that we were all craving.

I hope you too had a wonderful weekend. Let me know what you got up to in the comments. I really love hearing from you. As always thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to another Sunday Bites post. Today I’m sharing a recipe for snap pea salad with radishes and mozzarella. I found a version of the recipe on the New York Times website and it turned out so tasty, I’ve been making it weekly. This salad is perfect for a meal all on it’s own or as a side dish.

Ingredients:

Sugar snap peas

Radishes

Mozzarella

Fresh mint

Dijon mustard

Lemon

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions :

Bring a pot of water to a boil and trim the edges of you sugar snap peas. Cook the peas in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove from heat immediately, drain and place the peas into an a bowl of ice water to stop the peas from overcooking. Next thinly slice the radishes, dice the mozzarella cheese, and chop fresh mint into thin ribbons. To make the dressing combine dijon mustard with fresh lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Play around with the ratio of mustard, lemon and oil until you achieve the flavor you like. Add salt and pepper to taste. To assemble the salad combine everything including the dressing in a bowl. Taste and add seasoning or dressing as needed.  Serve and enjoy.

Happy Sunday!
