We have had the craziest few weeks. After we were in Seattle, we were supposed to drive down the West Coast and fly out of LAX to go to Athens. Well, our route was surrounded by forrest fires – so needless to say – our plans changed.
Instead, we head back to the Midwest to put in some time in the Everly offices and flew from Minneapolis to LAX to catch our flight to Athens. It saved us a substantial amount of money to have a 24 hour layover on each side of our trip, so we decided to spend two days in LA.
I have to be one of the only bloggers out there who has never spent time in LA. I have family in northern California and my brother lived in San Fransisco for many years, but never LA.
I’m not one of those bloggers who goes to the Reward Style conferences, fashion week and red carpets. I went to NYFW once for two days and I swore I would never do it again. I would much rather work on capsule closet and travel content than just be another one of the bloggers that does all of that. It is simply not me.
I studied apparel merchandising in college and 90% of us end up in New York or LA. I like visiting, but I could never live there. I like being from the Midwest and being more down to earth. I feel like that’s what makes me different.
They were having 90 degree weather in LA while I was there and I had packed in just a duffel for a 10 day trip to Greece (I have a post coming up all about this). So I styled a simply black slip dress, cognac sandals and piled on the accessories for a day exploring Beverly Hills.
Wearing two Hamptons Bands and The Isla Ring (from the new Everly Holiday Collection). Until Thursday, mix and match engagement rings and stackable bands 3 for $127.50, 4 for $169.15 or 5 for $212.50 with code ‘CHICSTREET’
Sizing hint: I wear a size 4 in the engagement rings and a size 5 in the stackable bands for the most comfortable fit.
