This jacket and purse have become definite every day staples. The bag is such a show stopper I'm pretty sure it enters a room before I do. Wore the two with this awesome dress. I am obsessed with the collar. It reminded me of Alexa Chung, and since I want to be her, it all works out. This past week was my birthday! I definitely had some super high highs and some super low lows. Even though life handed me a double scoop of a crap sundae, the big take away for me was how many awesome friends and family I have that made my birthday week amazing. Surprise karaoke night and a day of wine tasting? Score.

I've been very drawn to black dresses lately. Maybe it's because they go so well with little black boots. This bad boy is no exception. Gazed at the sunset this particular day from the Griffith Observatory. It was no easy feat battling the hoards of people who had the same idea. But we made it, and it was beautiful. Score one more for you Los Angeles.

Sometimes it's necessary to get out of town. Even if that means just driving 35 minutes north. Had a lovely daycation yesterday in LA wandering the streets and exploring neighborhoods I had previously only seen in the dead of night. Twas extremely chilly yesterday and I am not one to dress weather appropriate. Oh, it's 55 degrees out? Let me just reach for the nearest crop top. At least I wore a skirt that is basically a wearable blanket. LA has definitely grown on me. We're still working out the kinks, but the seemingly endless amount of Asian restaurants at your disposal is a good start.

I frequently see many fashionable, young ladies walking around and sometimes have to stop them dead in their tracks and ask, "Where did you get that?!" I always hope they give me a brand or store they bought it from and not tell me it's their grandma's or it's vintage. What a buzzkill. The cherry on top is if  what I'm gawking at is described as "...sooooo comfortable." Now you've got my attention! I'm the girl that is always tugging and pulling and swearing that everything I own has an itchy label. My pile of unworn, toe pinching shoes is getting quite large. So my new(ish) rule is comfort over everything! Spending money on items I'll never wear is just tomfoolery. This outfit is a great example. I might as well be wearing pajamas it's so comfortable. Perfect rompers tend to do that.
