Welcome to the first post from our European road trip. We spent our first day in Paris where we did what we do best, sit at open air cafes while people watching. We visited our favorite touristy spots like Place de Trocadéro which is the best place to get those iconic Eiffel Tower shots you see everywhere (it’s best if you go early in the morning). We also stopped by the Arc de Triomphe before being treated to an exquisite dinner at Ladurée. The next morning we picked up our gorgeous rental car from Sixt and took off on our road trip.

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.

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.
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.
Platform in Culver City is quickly becoming my new favorite spot for shopping, eating, and simply hanging out on a slow day. Platform describes themselves as a collection of innovative creative stores, eateries, and specialty businesses. A few of my favorites are Aesop for skincare, the newly opened Reformation store is perfect for when I need an outfit in a pinch. There is also Stay, a thoughtfully curated lifestyle store. Loqui has my favorite mushroom tacos and Van Leeuwen is the best for homemade ice cream. There is an abundance of other merchants I still need to check out, with more and more opening each time I come. Next time you’re thinking of something to do in LA make sure to drop in.
