Went to The Other Room in Venice on Saturday with the same friends from the previous night. Still high on my PMN yellow blouse, I decided to go Issa's route with denim shorts, but added a blazer.

Once at my friends', we held an impromptu photoshoot...which made me think "If we were a band, we'd totally have our album pictures set."
arthur, tim, rye bread, me bishop, queen, rook, knight if we were a band, this would be the album cover
We continued the photoshoot on the way to the bar. Literally, it took us 3x as long to get there because we were taking so many pictures on the walk. Don't worry...we finally made it. But I didn't make it for very long:
While this looks like I'm posing, I've actually stopped walking..so I don't hurl. Way to keep it classy Steph.
I extended my bottom liner out for a different look that wasn't too extreme for just dinner & drinks. Made my eyes look BIG.
The Wood Spoon is a small Brazilian restaurant in DTLA known for their chicken pot pies (I know, right? I don't think of chicken pot pies when I think Brazilian food either.)

After dinner, we walked about 1/2 mile to Seven Grand, a bar on 7th & Grand specializing in HUNDREDS of different whiskeys. Luckily, they also had a full bar as my drink of choice is a Goose gimlet. Guess who was ready for bed & mid-yawn when this lovely picture was taken?
Our friends over at phi-style and wewearthings have decided to sell some of their featured items on prettymuchnew...and srsly, how could one resist? Great prices & I already know everything looks good!
I immediately purchased this yellow blouse and couldn't wait to figure out how to wear it. Issa paired it with denim shorts, but since I probably couldn't go trotting into work like that, I opted for a high-waisted black skirt.

And I totally bought this black silk tunic; so stay tuned for that...basically, I'm just re-blogging their pieces. Ha. Also, there are a lot of links in this post.
Moar ruffles because...I like them. I got this shirt about 2-years ago, and I'm still figuring out how to wear it. Somehow it just doesn't look good in just jeans.

As you can see, taking pictures while the dogs are loose is nearly impossible! They are such camera hogs! And let's be real, there's only room for ONE camera hog in this houseshold. questions about this post?
Sorry for all of the touristy posts, but I've been exploring different pockets of LA a lot more, and figured I'd share with you guys!
Venice is probably one of my favorite cities to hang out in. With small boutiques, the cool beach breeze and a laid-back feel, it's one of those places where you can literally slip on some flip-flops, grab a sweater (it CAN get cold at night), and just walk around for hours.
martin + osa blazer & blouse, jcrew skirt i am laughing because it is clearly very foggy, yet i refuse to take off my shades. doucheette!
Do radio stations outside of SoCal play "LA-themed" songs, like California Love, We Run LA and Going Back to Cali? Also, do cities all over the world get the remixed "I'm in [City] Trick"? Like, "I'm in ScrantonTrick" or "I'm in Pawnee Trick"?
Last weekend, Rye Bread & I went to LA Live, since he's has never been...even though he was born & raised in LA. BLASPHAMY! After getting a few drinks at the newly constructed J.W. Marriott, we walked around to explore.

Before we went to LA Live, we had dinner with Rye Bread's best friends & guess who taught Rye Bread's goddaughter how to pose [she just turned 2]:
Seriously if these don't either melt your heart or crack you up, your heart is almost as cold as mine. Pretty sure she might have her own fashion blog soon.
Ruffles are perfect for Spring (seriously is it Spring yet?) and I just had to jump on the bandwagon. This is a good "casual Friday" or weekend-out look. But...since I work in such a casual environment, this looks applies for me EVERYDAY!
Paired with espadrilles or even embellished sandals, this look is super simple & comfy.

In other news, congrats to Ryan's basketball team, 3rd Leg, who won Sportsfest, a basketball tournament held at my old Alma Mater, Cal Poly Pomona. These guys have been playing together for the past 10+ years, so it's nice to see that these old dogs still got it. I am such a team mom.
