Today we are leaving for our European road trip. My bags are filled to the brim wth flirty dresses, summer sandals, and straw accessories. I’ve got endless lists of sites to see, towns to visit, and most importantly restaurants to over indulge at. I can’t wait to share our adventure as we travel through France, Italy, and Switzerland. The only disappointment is that our trip to Finland fell through, but a trip through Scandinavia is still at the top of the list, as well as hundreds of other places.

Follow our trip on my Instagram – @LateAfternoon, and keep a look out for our blog posts detailing the adventure.

There’s really nothing more essential than a crisp white button up. It’s an exceptional piece which allows you infinite versatility. I’m currently smitten with this version of a white button up from Frame. My favorite part is obviously the bell sleeves. They give this classic that in-the-moment feel while still retaining its’ timelessness.

We’re only 2 days away from our road trip through France, Italy, and now possibly the Alps. If you have any tips or suggestions please share. You can follow our journey on Instagram – @LateAfternoon starting Wednesday.

Happy Sunday and Father’s Day. Here’s an easy brunch recipe that’s perfect for any occasion. I love making it for houseguests when I want to impress them without cooking up a storm. Hope you all have a lovely week.

Ingredients:

Polenta

White mushrooms

Eggs

Garlic

White onion

Spinach

Balsamic vinegar

Green onion

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Start by heating oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut polenta into half  inch thick cakes, sprinkle with oil and bake until outside starts to get crispy, about 15 minutes. While polenta is cooking, bring a pot of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling place in the eggs and cook for six minutes. Once the eggs are cooked, remove form heat immediately. Place them in cool water until ready to serve. To make the toppings, start by caramelizing the onions, next add in your mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are soft and almost cooked through. Sprinkle in finely chopped fresh garlic, stir together and de-glaze the pan with a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Cook for another minute or two. As mushrooms are cooking quickly steam the spinach. Assemble by stacking all of components into little towers. Start with the polenta cakes on the bottom, add the steamed spinach, pile on the mushrooms, top each stack with a shelled half of your 6 minute egg. Season with salt and pepper, garnish with green onion.

Serve and enjoy.

Tip: Don’t forget to season and taste everything like the spinach and mushrooms as you go along.

As we get ready for our road trip through France and Italy, I can’t help but start dressing as if we are already in Provence. I’m thinking airy dresses and separates, paired with basket bags, straw hats, and oversized shades. Since I have to pack light I’m doing my best to pair down what I bring to only the essentials and a few key accessories. I’m beyond excited for our trip. I can’t wait to bring you all along on the adventure via blog posts, Instagram stories, and scenic pictures of a countryside rarely seen or experienced by most visitors to France and Italy.

I think you all know what my favorite color is by now.  So it’s no surprise that I was overly excited to learn of this amazing pink house art installation located near my home. It felt almost kismet that I had also recently purchased this vintage Dior logo knit dress from my favorite vintage store The Fine Art of Design in Palm Springs.

The art installation was created by @themostfamousartist and curated by Fredrik Lidskog of @impermanent_art. It’s located at 1500 Hi Point st. in LA. I highly suggest you drop by and see it for yourself if you’re in the area, but do it soon because it’s only temporary.  Since “that pink wall” on Melrose is so unbelievably played out this is a more than adequate replacement.
