This summer has been all about summer dresses for me. I’m totally guilty of getting stuck in mini style ruts. I often gravitate to certain shapes, cuts. and colors. Twirl worthy maxi dresses and pretty floral prints are always going to catch my eye. It’s part of my personal style and I’ve learned to appreciate having a certain aesthetic that works for me.
Easy breezy outfit for a Monday spent running errands. I picked up beautiful hydrangeas for the house, my favorite Diptyque candle, and a couple of new cook books. Summer days in the city of angels are long and slow, just the way I like them.
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.
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.
I’ve been eyeing both the skirt and shoes I’m wearing in this post for a while now. Much to my delight I found both at the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. Swooped both up along with a darling Kenzo dress. I’m also loving that crochet is having a moment this season. I like to keep my crochet pieces in neutral tones to give off a laid back California vibe with a hint of that 70’s boho feel.
