A thoughtful assortment of new favorites for this Californian.
LOCALE: Maru Coffee on Hillhurst
SCENE: Seeking refuge from domestic routine, I quietly peek at the world moving past in between moments of reading a short story on the author's introspective disposition on telling a short story well. The Paris Review makes a great cafe companion. As soon as the bottom of the cup shows face, I contemplate whether an extra latte's worth of 'me' time is obliged and the answer is always yes.
DRESS: A soft-spoken Raquel Allegra Dress with tactile fray and versatile comfort.
LOCALE: El Capitan Canyon
SCENE: The scent of sage and the soothing warmth of sunshine emanates through the open window. Dawn had just come and gone and ease is all that's brought to the spirit. The kind of day that lays ahead includes a hand-in-hand walk through the sycamore grove and an earnest attempt to spot a gentle deer.
DRESS: A Chloe plissé dress, with the precision of fluid pleats and the amorous air of sheer silk.
|LOCALE: Thousand Steps Beach
SCENE: Some goods from Papa's Tacos and a fresh young coconut in hand make a gratuitous treat after a couple hundred steps down to our spot in the sand, unconcerned of how it will feel like a thousand going back up come dusk. Low tide beckons the reckless adventure beyond the caves, to the mythical saltwater pools that transport you to a cinematic scene in which you are the starring mermaid.
DRESS: A Zimmermann Dress that does florals with sophistication.
