Candy Crush is pretty addictive (yes, I still play the game on my phone however I don’t send out multiple requests on Facebook for extra ‘lives’ hehe) but today’s post centers around a different kind of ‘candy crush’…this candy printed clutch from Redbubble! It’s a fun little accessory to make any look ‘sweet’…ok sorry for all the puns but I seriously just love this colorful, candy inspired ensemble #SorryNotSorry 🙂
And here it is…my first outfit post shot and written in LA! I am beyond thrilled to be fully moved into my West Hollywood apartment and am ready to get back to my blogging routine (it’s been a little rough the past few weeks between furniture shopping, getting settled in and finding my way around LA…it’s a lot for even a NY girl to handle :p)! Well let me first give props to my amazing roommate Ali who is now replacing my brother as photographer (he can’t move out here to be my personal photographer just yet…trust me I tried…my mother wasn’t having it haha). This look was shot at the LACMA museum in LA…you may recognize these lamp posts from a bunch of movies and tv shows (my personal favorite being ‘Friends With Benefits’)…I am obsessed with them (I actually shot a cute LBD moment in front of them last year when I was visiting!)
And this everyone is my happy place…Rodeo Drive…California’s version of 5th avenue with a lot
less crowding and a beautiful temperature year round (I guess it’s safe to say I have yet to miss NYC huh? :p) I actually shot this before I was even fully living in LA. My little brother and I ventured around Rodeo one morning during our vacation a few weeks ago and I kinda forced him to shoot this outfit because yes…I wasn’t wearing ‘designer‘ on Rodeo but hey I think it still looked pretty damn cute!
Today is a bit bitter-sweet…by the time all of you are reading this, I will be on the road for my big move to California! If you didn’t catch Monday’s post, I announced that I am moving to LA and leaving the only place I’ve ever known, Long Island, for a new journey filled with great opportunities and of course some adventure.
It’s crazy to think I will be leaving my family and friends behind to venture out on my own and really become an adult but hey…it has to happen eventually right? Well I decided today was the perfect opportunity to do a little flashback to a look I shot a few weeks ago at one of my favorite Long Island hot spots, Prime American Kitchen & Bar (during my college years I actually hosted there during the summer). I have always loved being by the water and soaking up some sunshine so hostessing there was one of my favorite jobs and not to mention the food was kinda amazing…(and by kinda I mean it was in fact amazing!). Ok so maybe I am getting distracted…I love this look and even more the scenic Huntington Harbor backdrop (hey maybe it’s meant to be I am moving to LA…there is a Huntington beach in Cali isn’t there?)
Happy Thursday Lovers! I am sharing a fun shoot from my trip to Cali for this Throwback Thursday! I had such a blast attending Lucky Fabb and great events like ‘Getting Chic With Chagoury‘ & ‘Wendy’s Blow Dry Event‘, but I also had fun shooting looks for my blog with Kristi and her amazing boyfriend who was our photographer for the week 🙂
