All of the Lights


I visited Los Angeles to attend LA Fashion Weekend a few days ago and had some time to explore the gorgeous Grove. Balconies reminiscent of a European provincial town, festive lights strung high in the sky, and glowing neon signs make this a must-stop-shopping experience for every visiting fashionista. The Grove is also the newest home to the only Topshop in California (and one of only 4 locations in the US; the others being Las Vegas, Chicago, & New York). I had the chance to (finally) visit Madewell and see for myself what all the fuss has been about. It is like the love child of J.Crew x Gap with fun, preppy basics, but not quite as girly as C. Wonder. Their style gives off a "girl next door" feel, embracing tomboyish yet feminine silhouettes. Hmm...comfort & style= bonus!

my bestie's outfit details: 
Captoe ankle booties- Aldo "Ima"// Polka dot cold shoulder top- Mix Nouveau// 
Blazer- thrifted from the Hanger-Working Wardrobes
Clothing: White blazer- Forever 21, Galaxy cross tank- Papaya or similar here, Crimson peplum skirt- INC from Macy's
Accessories: Ceramic watch- Michael Kors (MK5387), Metallic satchel- COACH Flagship 70th Anniversary Caroline
Shoes: Architectural wedge- Qupid Luke, I purchased from ZooShoo, $33


 Special thanks to my bestie for taking all these photos + for being so patient with me. You're amazing!
