Seriously, Reformation is the ultimate standby for me. I picked up these vintage Missoni trousers from Assembly LA the other day, but was having a bit of a dilemma finding out just the right top to wear with them. I mean, a part of me wanted to go ahead and do head to toe white, but who am I kidding? I can barely make it through the first hour of my morning without spilling coffee on myself, let alone wearing white pants!! I was flipping through the racks at my local ref, when voila! I found this Potion top, and it was just what these wide legged flares were asking for-added a dash of bronze lip color, and I boom, I was out the door feeling oh so fly!

I love when I get the chance to make it over to the west side of my city – Main St. & Abbot Kinney Blvd are a MUST to check out when you’re in Santa Monica/Venice area. My mom and I grabbed a quick bite a Chaya in Venice, which is absolutely NOM (that is if you like asian fusion). After, we headed across the street to my favorite Venice boutique, Mona Moore, where I was lucky enough to score a pair of these legit ballet flats!

Here are the deets to my top Venice to-do’s !

Mona Moore – 222 Main St, Venice, California, 90291

Having brunch poolside at the Chamberlain Hotel in WeHo! This boutique hotel is a true hidden gem, and is tucked quietly away behind Santa Monica Blvd. If you ever are in town, definitely be sure to check this place out, the interior decor is ridiculously inspiring.  I have been seriously stalking this place for years-this post here was over 3 years ago, but you can see a bit more of the playful inside accents that I’m talking about.  Discovering the coolest hotels in my city is beyond fun, I promise to bring you guys the best of the best. From now on, just call me “Lauren, the hotel Scavenger” Woohooooo!

The drive to Malibu via Topanga Canyon is pure magic. Honestly, visual stimulation overload. My mom and I were on the way over when we spotted all these green majestic creatures! This garden is right at the base of the canyon in Woodland Hills. I am super into Brandy Melville summer tops, picked up this white ruffled off shoulder a couple of days ago, basically sleeping in it now.

There  is nothing I like more than wearing a simple slip dress on a blazing hot day…I got this one at the new Assembly Los Angeles boutique on Melrose, and holy moly-they honestly have the most mind blowing vintage selection. If you’re ever in town, mark it down on your to-do’s!  BTW, totally feeling the navy on navy vibes-there is just come thing so clean and chic about this color, no?!

Wandering around West Hollywood in sky-high platforms because I am totally obsessed, and I refuse to take them off my feet!! For those of you who don’t know, I am a shop girl at a local LA boutique, and I am on my feet for 9 hours a day (which is a brutal beating for your tootsies)- heels are the last thing on my mind, but somehow these are insanely comfy…oh the wonders of soft suede, and a sturdy lux ankle strap!

Ahhh yes, the infamous Paul Smith pink wall on Melrose Ave. It is what we fashion bloggers can only dream of right? Fresh rosy paint, blank, and unfussy that meets our ideal perfect backdrop for an outfit post! Tip to my fellow bloggers: this wall is on the corner of Melrose and Harper Ave. :) Try and go on a Sunday, and hit the farmers market in Melrose place for yummy treats and flowers after. I scored this Zara piece on sale for 30 bucks-should still be available here (perfect for an easy Sunday afternoon).

Marc by Marc Jacobs phone case

Last minute lunch date with my mom yesterday, we grabbed a quick bite at Joan’s on 3rd, did a little shopping, and got a much needed mani/pedi-I wanted to keep it easy breezy for the valley heat, so I kept it simple with my current favorite jeans and a basic top. LOW MAINTENANCE ALERT: Throwing your hair in a low messy bun, keeps it real-but adds a touch of polish to a somewhat easy look.

I woke up this morning in my new H&M pajamas, went down to the kitchen to make my routine good ol’ cup a Joe.  But to my surprise (gasps!), there was but just one measly bean in the bottom of the bag. :(   Instead of hopping in the shower, I dared to wear these pjs out of the house…my way.

I crossed the line (i.e. my front door), jumped into my car and said to myself “I’m gonna give these little jammies a run for their money”.  Of course, I couldn’t wear these babies out as their unsartorialized version of themselves.  So before hitting the road, I decided they would appreciate getting out of their comfort zone with a brand new makeover!

It must have come to me in a dream, that my white quilted bustier (sitting mateless in my closet) would be the perfect match for my cafe chic adventure in West Hollywood!  “We got this, my beloved Starbucks companions”!  Bless their little hearts, for keeping me cool, confident and caffeinated all summer long!

Kisses, Lauren
