A day in LA keeps the doctor away.
I finally made a trip to Los Angeles. I’ve been missing it, and a vacation was long overdue. Plus I hadn’t visited with my friends and family out there in a while.
I made it my goal to hit up as many of my old favorite places as possible, and to document everything along the way.
On this particular day I went to Carrera Cafe, the famous Paul Smith pink wall, the Melrose flea market, and even shopping in Old Town Pasadena. If you’re ever in LA, I highly recommend doing all of this!
It felt amazing to be there again. Everything was just the same as when I moved 2 years ago. It was almost as if I never left. And any of the sadness I had about not living in LA anymore melted away. I was finally back.
I wore my new favorite ASOS ripped jeans and an off the shoulder crop top (FYI I regretted the jeans because it was 95 degrees).
I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking, so comfortable but still cute was key. My black strappy sandals are one of the most comfy pairs I own, so they were perfect!
Styling the Off the Shoulder Crop Top
1. Choker: This black choker matches just about everything. It’s probably the necklace I wear the most. And it only costs $6.90. Totally worth it.
2. Crop Top: I love the ease of this top. The simplicity of the thin stripe pattern goes with anything I pair it with. And the top is so flowy and breezy. It’s great for a warm sunny day.
3. ASOS Jeans: These are the perfect “mom jean” style pants. I like to wear them rolled up because I’m not tall enough for the full length look. If you are, then you’re lucky! They have such a cute notched raw hem I’d love to be able to show off. They’ve since started making them in Petite as well, so you might be better off going that direction. I’ve included petite, regular, and tall at the bottom of this post so you can choose what works best for your height!
4. Sandals: They’re casual little strappy sandals, but as I mentioned earlier, they’re super comfy! And I just love how they look in an outfit with my black choker. The thickness of each is a perfect match and it pulls the whole look together.
