Ahhhhh, LA. Y'all probably know by now that it's by favorite place to be. I was there a few weeks ago only for a couple of days after we drove from Las Vegas celebrating Des' birthday weekend. I know I have been sort of M.I.A. but I am moving! Forgive me. You know how busy and stressful moving can be so it has been tying me up along with daily work. (I'm trying to stop making excuses but sheeeesh) it's been hectic! But anyway, hope you guys are well! We only spent 3 days in LA but we certainly made the most of it while we could! Visited with my high school friend Yvette, shopped around the Grove around a bit, strolled Abbot Kinney Blvd, Melrose, Venice Beach, and ate....a lot. New favorite healthy lunch spot - The Butcher's Daughter Venice. They have a spicy kale caesar salad that is off the chaaaaiiiin. Of course I had to squeeze in some time to take a few photos of my outfits that I wore while there. In LA we always walk a lot so I've learned my lesson by bringing comfortable shoes for almost everyday. The weather is just about perfect, so I opted for this gingham dress from Lulu's and paired it with these Gazelle Adidas for a sporty look. It can be kind of chilly during the day so I had a denim jacket on hand when I needed it. What pieces are you looking forward to wearing for Spring/Summer? I'm looking forward to wearing more sneakers with casual-chic outfits!

SUMMER TRAVELS: LOS ANGELES PHOTO DIARY

This city has definitely got to go on my list of favorites. There's no other place like it. To say that San Diego is the only other major city that I've been to (besides the smaller surrounding cities)  Los Angeles hands down wins my heart! It's just something about the feeling that I get when I'm there visiting. I just feel like I'm not worried about much at all and that I can do anything I want to do. Seriously trying to move here pretty soon!

As many times that I've been to LA, I am so grateful to have been able to stay at least three times now. That's how much I enjoy The Line. The interior is industrial-chic with concrete walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, and cool-funky artwork. The rooms have amazing views if you're facing the Hollywood Hills. For a few bucks extra, I would recommend requesting that option for your stay. If not, you'll probably be facing the loud street, or a building that blocks everything. Who wants that? The whole point of experiencing the Line Hotel is for the views. Don't pass up that opportunity for what you're paying.  Located in the Wilshire | Normandie neighborhood,  just in the center of Koreatown, The Line is not very far from a few LA attractions worth checking out. Although there are many places you can walk to near by, you honestly don't have to go too far because there are three restaurants to grab a bite at in the hotel.

The Commissary - A greenhouse inspired outside restaurant/bar serving Korean food with a touch of American. Located near the pool, you can grab a drink and chill outdoor on the surrounding patios

The Pot - Located inside near the lobby of the check-in area, you can always grab Korean BBQ (try the BBQ wings) or just a drink at night, where there's a DJ almost every weekend. The Line is mainly accompanied by modern hipsters + a trendy crowd of people in town visiting, or from the local area to party and have a good time. Always a fun atmosphere.

The Cafe - If you're a morning person, you can catch the Cafe open at 6am seven days a week. I have yet to try it, but the pastries always look so good 

As I get more into creating lifestyle content, I will be sure to update travel + travel tips when I can. I hope y'all enjoyed the photo diary! More LA pics to come in later upcoming posts. Stay tuned!
