Equipment







I know its hard to believe, but I just recently discovered Nordstroms Rack! I loveeee finding great deals on designer products! I was shocked to find this Equipment dress for 90% off!! I fell in love with the color and print of this dress. It is perfect for the summer and would make a great outfit for Hawaii! I found this belt at a random store in Pasadena that actually has a lot of unique items for great prices. I like how you can use it for casual as well as formal wear.

St. Regis





This was my first time visiting St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point. The interior is absolutely gorgeous and so spacious! I love the elegance of the architecture of the resort. It is the perfect wedding venue with a great view of the ocean and their golf course. They also have an array of restaurants to choose from!
I've been saving this dress for a special occasion and thought this mini vacation would be the perfect time to wear it. I've been obsessed with hi-lo dresses this entire season, but I've found that a lot of them are poorly designed on the top. I was so excited when I found this dress and how fit well.

Dress: TJMaxx $19.99
Earrings: Ross $4.99
Bangel: Foreign Exchange $17 (BOGO free in stores or $10.20 online)
Clutch: Foreign Exchange $29 (BOGO free in stores)

DTLA





I have always loved the tall buildings in Downtown LA. Although I've worked in DTLA before, I still haven't explored it all. My friends and I had lunch in Little Tokyo near the Japanese Village and then decided to visit MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art). There is actually two separate sections of MOCA. One is right next to Japanese Village and the other is just a couple blocks down. It was a perfect day for a nice stroll through DTLA and we stopped at various points for some shots. The Police Department actually looks beautiful with a serene  water pond and landscaping.We found an opening in the streets with a pretty cool view of the street underneath too.

Top: Forever 21 $14.80
Shorts: H&M $17.95
Sandals: Aldo $20.99 (Org. $40)

LACMA






Seriously cannot believe I've lived in LA all my life and never visited this place! Almost everyone I know has visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and I've always been so envious. Finally, I randomly just stopped by on the way to The Grove in West LA. It was pretty awesome!! I never knew each of these lamps are different. Would love to stop by again during the night when they're all lit up.

Modern Kimono







I found this top during Forever 21's BOGO Free sale and stoked to see that it was just $6.99! I love the eccentricity of this top. It reminds me of a modern Japanese kimono. Definitely an eye catcher! I am wearing nude shorts underneath. It can be paired with a tights or leggings as well.
