I love red. It’s just such a great bright pop. In LA, you definitely don’t need color to brighten up your day but you definitely need some to fit in with your surrounding. This Topshop dress is lady-like with a great red punch. It was perfect for a day of errands and shopping, which isn’t so different for what I do in NYC all the time. But everything is different to LA. Having to drive is like traveling to Mars for me. So you’re tell me I can’t just take the F train to Soho for a quick trip to H&M, okay? Oh, I can’t walk to Whole Foods? Okay, I’ll drive. So, what about exercise? I have to go to an actual gym…I see. Needless to say, I am missing NYC but mostly, the people in it. It’s really too beautiful to complain.
I AM BACK! AND I have an orange tree and a backyard. WTF? In NYC, you are lucky if you’re fire escape is large enough to hold a plant. This is making me very excited. Everything is sooooo new out here and I’ve met a lot of great people. I am totally just enjoying the ride. I shot my long black maxi dress which I cut a slit into. I decided to shoot under my new orange tree because I’m really excited about it.
So far I am really enjoying the city and have experienced some moments that I will never forget, both good and bad. So far, mostly good. I am very much missing NYC and can’t believe I am not there. One of my best friends may visit for the month of May and I am just so overjoyed. LA is a really interesting place and everyone always said that comparing it to NYC is like comparing apples to oranges. Well, I’ve got my oranges right now.

Is hell. Sorry but there will be significantly less posts over the next week or so. I love NYC so much that it’s heartbreaking to go but you only grow through change.
With very high hopes about the weather turning to sunny days, I broke out my capris from Capri, Italy. Every time I wear them it brings happy memories of sunning on the beach, shopping, amazing views, and walking around the gorgeous island. I miss it. I miss sun. Anyway, we had a bit of nice weather where I didn’t have to be completely bundled. I went for some modern simplicity with a fun printed scarf used as a headband. Here are a few shoes in my outfit.
A few notes on the capris, La Parisienne, is where the capri was invented hence the name. Jackie O, Audrey Hephburn, Brigette Bardot, all shopped here. I’m sure you’ve all seen glamorous pictures of these ladies in this cropped pants and this is where they got them. It’s iconic. If you go to Capri, go there, get a pair. They are timeless. You will always wear and love them.
Guys are infamously shitty at saying exactly what it is that they want. Sometimes dating can feel like trying to crack a code. I had a friend who had a guy invite to hang out at a bar and she thought it was a date but it ended up being his friends and her at a massive hotel pool party. Not cool… also, not clear. Here are a few outfit ideas to save you from any embarrassment of these situations.
