L.A. Photo Diary

During the last week of my Winter break, I fled from the cold Washington rain and flew into the sunny skies of Los Angeles. One of my friends and I spent the week wandering along the beach, hiking through the Hollywood hills and trekking around Disneyland. I thought I’d share some photos from the trip, highlighting some of my favorite SoCal outfits!


I wore my boyfriend jeans and Topshop kimono to the Griffith Park Observatory, where I soaked up the sun in front of the Hollywood sign.


Also, I have a new boyfriend named Woody. We’re in love. I made sure to wear my sturdy Doc Martens and comfy star dress to Disneyland. When you’re running and screaming for 15.5 hours, you’ve gotta be comfortable!


For someone who is as obsessed with fashion as I am, Rodeo Drive is like heaven. In my tulle skirt and black velvet top, I browsed around Valentino, YSL, Dior, Miu Miu, Prada and Louis Vuitton. Yeah, I know. I was really on the verge of foregoing college and buying a Prada gown, but practicality got the best of me.


On our last night in town, we watched the sunset on the Santa Monica beach. It was a week of style and sun, and I can’t say I was eager to return to the chilly PNW air.

Stay golden,
