For many nonnatives, Los Angeles is known equally for being a celebrity playground, as it is for being a catalyst in spreading the hottest new health trends. While there is some truth in this, LA county is home to dozens of diverse neighborhoods filled with great shopping, beautiful scenery and amazing restaurants– offering much more than tourist attractions. 

Read on to see all of my favorite places to eat, shop and explore… and most importantly, what to wear when doing so!

IN MY BAG: Spring Break Carry-Ons

As spring break quickly approaches, it is important to begin organizing. More often than not what you will wear is placed at the forefront of your packing agenda, but this year give your carry-on a little extra thought.

Read on for tips and links to my favorite travel products you should be packing.


At the risk of sounding cliché, there is truly no place more magical than Paris. The romantic facade of the “City of Love” can be credited to the picturesque architecture, dreamy landmarks, and cool je ne sais quoi of perfectly-French street style. To make the most during a Parisian getaway, both a perfectly curated suitcase and itinerary are key. Read on to see what to “wear for where”, inspired by my time this summer.

Wear For Where: Orange County

California is a place that has become a second home. I have relatives all along the coast, a brother who attends USC, and 3 consecutive months of exploring last summer, that have promoted me from the title of “tourist” to “honorary local” (in my opinion 😉 )!! During my 3 month exploration I divided my time between Los Angeles, where I interned, and Orange County, where one of my aunts lives. This area of southern California is composed of many beach (and near-the-beach towns) that span along PCH. My aunt lives in Huntington Beach, where a change of OC scenery is no more than a short drive South. So, from my many days spent on the ‘Golden West Coast’, I have created a list of must-see destinations and the outfits you should wear while you’re there!

Enjoy! Xo
