Retail Therapy and Weekend Wants and other adventures

L.A. does a body good.  

I have had a crazy hectic but, amazing trip to Los Angeles with LCDQLA for Legends 2015 (more on that this week). Saturday was a day of exploring the city.  


We started with a long walk on the Santa Monica boardwalk while another friend, Cathy Austin, took a surf lesson from Santa Monica Surf School.

 Her instructor was likely the most handsome specimen of a man I ever did see and a sweet southern boy to boot.  This actor will be doing BIG things to be sure.


Then on to shopping adventure in Abbot Kinney, lunch at  and a trip to the Brentwood Country mart before meeting more Cali gals for drinks at their beach club.  


The night was spent in WeHo at Red O catching up with a college buddy.  A perfect day to be sure…

I do believe Abbot Kinney had an influence on my already bohemian vibe these days.  Spending 5 days with great friends in one house was a blast as each other closets were perused for the latest and greatest things.

I now need a few days in a hammock (a la Slim Aarons) to recover but, no such luck.


Here are my menagerie of weekly wants with lots of new introductions from Wisteria, Anthropologie, Free People and more.
