Stripes and Leopard

This weekend I had one of my best friends from college visit. We had the most amazing time! It was so much fun playing tour guide and showing her so many different parts of LA. I wore this outfit to brunch on Saturday at King's Road Cafe.

Clearly we were having way too much fun :)

My (Recent) Jams

There's been a lot going on in life with my recent move, sweetheart coming back from a two-week trip, helping a friend pack up to move, work, etc. I'm feeling more inspired today and I think it's partially due to a recent song I stumbled upon. Do any of you watch the TV show Nashville? I'm completely obsessed but I don't have cable so I watch it on my computer (which always leaves me a bit behind schedule.) I just watched the season two finale and the song Gunner writes Scarlet is soo beautiful!! I have been listening to it on repeat. It's called "It Ain't Yours to Throw Away" and on itunes you'll find it by Nashville Cast feat. Sam Palladio. I love it!

Here are some other jams I'm enjoying lately:
A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
Problem by Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
Bounce (extended mix) by Calvin Harris feat. Kelis
Change Your Life by Iggy Azalea
Fancy by Iggy Azalea
Waves by Mr. Probz (Robin Shulz Remix)
Not a Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake
Am I Wrong by Nico & Vinz

New York Through My iPhone

I was in New York last weekend, and let me tell you, my opinion of that city has changed for the better. I went with my mom a few years ago and was completely overwhelmed, but this time I was captivated by the energy and beauty of the city. Not to mention it has sooo many parks. So many parks!! And great food. I visited three of my oldest friends who I've known going on 16+ years. What a reunion!
 Sorry for the poor quality, but this brand just cracked me up -- "DANG!!"

 Walking to brunch at Freemans on the Lower East Side. A super hip spot down an alleyway. If taxidermy freaks you out, this is not the restaurant for you. 

 Central Park - New York staple.

 Fresh Blooms

 T-REX!!! I was so excited to see this guy at the AMNH.

 My friend snapped this when I was trying to delete photos off my camera because the memory card filled up.

The most DELICIOUS cheese bread at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn. I. Loved. Smorgasburg. It was definitely a highlight and reminded me a lot of LA's obsession with farmers' markets. Think delicious lunch foods (tacos, bowls, sandwiches, drinks, etc.) rather than flowers and fresh fruit.

 Cute menu

 Great view of Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building

Charming guy in a charming hat reading on his charming stoop

More NY pics to come! What are your favorite things to do in NYC?
