I’m finally coming to the realization that I’m a LA girl at heart. I’ve lived there for so many years that I know my way around, can deal with the “traffic” (which in my opinion is beyond exaggerated), and have an amazing group of friends. Oh, and the obvious – you can’t compare the sunny and warm weather to anything. So obviously, I try to get to LA as much as possible.
After spending the last year in SF and the previous few years in Geneva, I realized that my summer “LA” dresses required a refresh before the past weekend trip. Just before heading out of town, I hit all my favorite shops with no success. I finally trekked over to Bloomingdales where there was an amazing sale – you know, one of those additional percentage off the sales rack sales. This bright dress is just one of the handful I picked up. The bright colors and lightweight fabric are very LA appropriate, so I wore it out to Manhattan Beach for a fun, non-laying out type of beach day. And I’ll soon be wearing it with a blazer to work to brighten up my mood on the next gloomy SF day… likely tomorrow.
