Griffith Observatory is a must if you live in LA, and if you do not live in LA put it on your bucket list for when you come visit! At Griffith Observatory you can hike and see the most amazing views. If you aren’t up for hiking because you just hiked to the Hollywood Sign two days ago… then the observatory is the perfect lookout point to see Los Angeles in all of its glory (that is if there is no smog and it’s a clear day, fingers crossed!)
Five miles later and I completed a round trip to the Hollywood sign! Hiking to the Hollywood sign is something that I feel like everyone has to experience at least once in their life! And if you are going to hike fashionably then you have to hike in Lulu Lemon, only of course!
Spring is just around the corner and I just found the best Trina Turk dress from Nordstrom Rack that is absolutely perfect for this spring season. The dress that I am wearing in these photo’s is a drop-waist dress and to be honest I was not sure how it would look on me. Sometimes I think drop-waistes can make people look weird but I decided to try it and I fell in love with it! It is so fun and stylish to wear. I also have the best prop ever with me for this photoshoot, a GIANT H balloon!
The LACMA lights took my breath away for sure. I have driven past them a bunch of times but I have finally had the chance to go out and walk through them! They are so cool but to be honest I thought they would be taller!
Since Spring Break is just right around the corner I thought I would talk about my favorite swim suit brands! Finding swim suits is always a challenge for me because well… boobs. Having big boobs make it so you can’t just go to Target and buy the first cute skimpy suit you see. For me it took a lot of research for me to be able to find suits that are cute AND supportive. I can’t be flouncing around in the water unless the girls are secured!
This VIX suit is THE BEST. This suit is great because it comes in cup sizes and not just Small, Medium, Large. This suit is also great because it comes in so many fun colors and patterns. While this suit does not have underwire in it, it is still extremely supportive and by far my FAVORITE suit to wear! In this photo I am wearing Tory Burch Sunglasses and Flash Tattoos.
I love, love, LOVE, this Seafolly suit! Seafolly is great because they make cup sizes as well! Australians must have the same conundrum as me! Seafolly suits never disappoint and I highly suggest them! I am wearing RayBan Sunglasses in this photo! This brand also make the cutest cover-ups!
Sample sale survivor, the few, the proud.
Phew! What a weekend my sister and I had going to sample sales in LA! We first went to the Nasty Gal sample sale and let me tell you, that was an EXPERIENCE. We got there at 9:40am and it was supposed to open at 10am. Of course the line did not even budge till around 10:40am. So, naturally, by now, my sister and I are ready to kill each other. Our backs hurt, the people in front of us are annoying, and it was supposed to start at 10am! We like when things are done promptly. So finally the line starts to pick up. This is the only Nasty Gal store currently open ever (the one in Santa Monica is opening this summer!) so they had never run a sample sale before. I hope they run there next sample sale much better than they did this one (AHEM, rent a warehouse in the warehouse district). It was technically called a “garage sale” and it was LITERALLY in the tiniest garage ever. Like maybe a one car garage, like come on people. So since the shopping space was so small the employees had to highly monitor how many people were in the space at one time. Since only about 10 people at a time would fit the line took FOREVER! I believe all in all we were at this sample sale for 5 fours. FIVE HOURS. It was insane. The prices of the items were pretty good but after five hours you kind of just want everything to be free. My sister got a skirt and we left as hangry as can be.
Although my sister and I left Nasty Gal annoyed and saying we would probably never go to a sample sale again, we woke up the next morning to hit the Brandy Melville sample sale (who can say no to a good sale, I mean really). So we drove past the Brandy Melville sale and immediately went and got breakfast. There were probably 250 tweens all camped out ready to buy $5 brandy clothes. We came back around 2pm and it was swiped! I did manage to get a cool tank top, however! This Sunday, March 1 (side note: I cannot believe it is already March) there will be another sample sale for Brandy Melville!
Location: 664 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA (In the warehouse district in DTLA!)
I would get there at like 2am if you want anything good. Just FYI
In the tune of Destiny’s Child “I’m A Survivor”….
I’m a survivor, I’m a sample sale fighter, I’m gonna search harder, ’till I find the best deals

Since my birthday is in May I always love getting new emerald earrings! These emerald earrings I got from Chloe + Isabel are very pretty and the perfect size.

And to go with this cuff I got the matching Medina Amethyst stud earrings. Purple IS my favorite color so these earrings are fabulous in every way, shape, form, AND color 😉 I also got this amazing coral and turquoise necklace that is very pretty and that I am sure I will be trying to pair with every outfit!

“Pink isn’t a color, it’s an attitude!”
This pink wall in LA is the BEST wall EVER. This wall is the Paul Smith wall on Melrose and I advise everyone to go have a photoshoot in front of it sometime! Once again I am decked out head-to-toe in Irene’s Story!
Another one of my favorite boutiques is Irene’s Story! I always go to the one in Huntington Beach, California and it is awesome. I can always count on this boutique to have way too many things that I want!! It is all always so cute and organized on the inside, which makes shopping so much more pleasurable. This boutique has so many merging styles in one store, the clothes are always super fashionable and extremely affordable. What is better than cute clothes that don’t break the bank?! That’s right, nothing! I am going to show you an outfit that I got last weekend while visiting my favorite SoCal boutique.
And yes, EEHHHPP that IS Lauren Conrad! Anyway, done fangirling (for now!) I have wanted some crochet shorts for soooo long and this pair from Irene’s Story was perfect. I love how they fit and how comfy they are. I love how I played with the colors of my outfit and mixed it up with a lilac fedora and a turquoise necklace! I love wearing hats and I love turquoise so I thought the two together would be perfect!
I hope you all get a chance to visit Irene’s Story someday in the near future and check out how awesome it is for yourselves! Don’t forget to check out my other Boutique Chic post from a few months ago!
Visit Irene’s Story to stay Vest Dressed! 🙂
