Put your hands up if you’re totally loving straw bags right now (me…me!!!!!). Why are they awesome? Well, firstly when you’re off to the beach these babies are pretty cheap and so who cares if you get a bit of sand in all the crevices? ANNND when you’re off to the beach you can fit EVERYTHING in!
On this particular occasion I was actually off to the beach…Venice beach in fact, although I have an ickle confession to make – we got up super early and shot these the next morning (and yep, it was a good 40min drive away). So the plan was to shoot the look down at Venice beach on our first full day in LA but it was heaving and we made the typically European mistake of thinking that it was just a short walk away from Santa Monica where we parked – boy were we wrong (but at least I got to kick start my tan!). Anyway….we couldn’t actually find the Venice Beach sign that you can see in the background and my feet were seriously hurting so we gave up trying to find it and walked the 3 miles or so back to the car (for those wondering – PARK DOWN IN VENICE).
So I’m writing this post after being back from LA for two days and am already seriously wishing I was back. You’ll hear this a lot from me but everything about LA suited me down to a tee (except that I’m not that ‘cool’ and don’t wear that many t-shirts but hey, it’s me in spirit!). I just loved the health and fitness lifestyle – we ‘accidentally’ stumbled into two, yes TWO, vegan cafes in LA.
Also, Melrose has the most instagrammable cafes in LA for sure. I’ll be writing a post about where we ate and an instagrammers guide shortly so keep an eye out – although I totally failed with getting pictures so you’ll need to bear with me on that one.
I also seriously loved living in my Stan Smiths for once, I actually wore them so much with dresses you wouldn’t believe it, keep an eye out on my Youtube channel for a lookbook.
