The toughest thing after a nice relaxing weekend is heading back to the normal ‘rise + grind’ on a Monday. No matter how long you are working for, the struggle never gets easier and it is in fact ‘real‘ 😉 I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs (if you follow me on SnapChat you got to see my random shenanigans…and if you don’t follow me well now you should duh! — this way you don’t miss out next time hehe – MissyOnMadison). After relaxing by the pool in the middle of a 90 degree desert it kind of made me never want to leave (can you blame me?)…although I would have loved to stay forever…I had to come back to reality…LA.
I never was one for Boho Chic style to be completely honest. I find myself to be more of a preppy girly girl or ‘Charlotte York’ inspired sophisticate…but when in LA, it is practically mandatory to have one or two ‘go to‘ Boho Chic ensembles and this happens to be one of them 😉 When the temperature heats up and exploring begins…desert vibes and ‘golden hour’ (referring to the best time to take outdoor photos) make great times for new outfit inspo (who would have thought I would enjoy boho style past Coachella haha :p)
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!)
