Pink + White

DOSE OF PROSE

Today I did some exploring around LA with some friends, and of course a mini photo shoot was involved. We started off with brunch at Urth Caffé on Melrose, ventured to the iconic Paul Smith pink wall, took a quick tour around LACMA and ended the day with smoothies on the Santa Monica Pier. The minimalist in me hardly wears color, but today was an exception. I found this cute yellow top in Zara and couldn't pass it up because I felt that it was light, breathable and overall perfect for the summertime in LA. I kept the rest of the outfit simple and comfortable with jogger pants. I also knew that I was going to do a lot of walking so I finished the outfit off with some loafers.

I titled this lookbook Pink + White because I thought the colors of this outfit, the scenery and the theme of the day matched the song "Pink + White" by Frank Ocean. It's one of my favorite songs on his Blonde album and you should definitely give it a listen and vibe to it if you haven't already. Anyway, I hope this post inspires you to go out with style the next time you decide to explore a new place, even if you end up being a tourist in your own city. There's so many hidden treasures in the world just waiting to be discovered! All you need is a camera, a good pair of walking shoes, a comfy tee/bottoms and a little wanderlust and you're all set. I want to emphasize though, the importance of keeping things comfy and casual. If you're going to be doing a lot of walking, especially if it's warm outside, it's better to stick with a relaxed style this time around. You'll be glad you did! I'll catch you in my next post.
