DTLA Art Walk

The second Thursday of every month, art galleries open for an Art Walk in downtown Los Angeles (DTLA). Most galleries open until 10pm then everyone heads to local bars; it's a great way to get people to be UNafraid of the former very scary DTLA. It was my first time going, and it was definitely a new experience: lots of people appreciating art in old-rundown buildings that have been renovated to hold artwork of up & coming artists.

But the one thing that I wasn't a fan of was the masses of HIPSTERS that were ERRwhere. Oh how cool they think they are. Brush your hair! Take a bath! Stop being different - you all look the same! No offense to hipsters.
rye: adidas jacket, scarf from my sister

Simplicity was my goal & I decided to go with just jeans & one of my two favorite trench coats.
citizen jeans, jessica simpson booties, h&m trench coat
The lighting makes the jacket look orange - but trust, it's a nice coral color.

OH and we found the bench from 500 Days of Summer, but it was closed, so hopefully we'll be able to take photos there one day. Hipsters.
