I spent a week in Los Angeles this month, and it was absolutely amazing! I love this city for all the fun, cultural, and gastronomic opportunities it offers. Not to mention the perfect lighting for photography! Something about the cloudless azure sky and the seemingly softer sunlight that bring photography to another level … I had loads of fun, from dining at picturesque and delicious restaurants to walking down 3rd Avenue Promenade to checking out the modern art scene at the Broad.
We snapped these pics at our hotel in LA. Co-ords in general have me going crazy. They feed my inner need for simplicity and order. I am not an innately matchy-matchy person but when I see a perfect amount in an outfit as I saw in this beautiful blue, sleeveless jacquard two-piece by Maje, I knew it was a winner. The impeccable stitching, the subtle design, and the perfectly crafted construction make this ensemble one of my spring/summer favorites.
A watch brand I would love to bring to your attention is Shore Projects. They do look exactly as they sound–if the British Seaside and vintage watches had a baby, these Shore Projects watches would be the product. Waterproof up to 100m, these were made to be worn while swimming in the most ravishing oceans in the world. A timeless yet modern high quality option, these watches are your best friend when traveling anywhere from London to LA to the Maldives. Happy, happy travels! Have a spectacular spring break.
For a little background info, Inès de la Fressange (check out that name) is a fashion designer as well as a former model and muse for Chanel–that pretty much sums it up. Her style = French flair (and perfectly executed, too). You can imagine my excitement when I saw that she was collaborating with one of my staple brands, Uniqlo. The winter collaboration is a flawless culmination of comfortable, basic pieces with a Je ne sais quoi twist by the one and only. I procured several pieces, and featured here is a graphic jumper of a man holding a baguette in one hand, and a French flag in the other. Honestly, how much more French can you get? Je ne sais pas.
