Between Brunch and Ice Cream

It was admittedly, a pretty leisurely Saturday. Friday had been a late night of seeing Eliot Glazer's Haunting Renditions followed by an hour of driving around looking for a parking space so we could get dinner. (Honestly L.A. how do you live like this?) Thus resulting in a late Saturday brunch. We went to one of my sister's favorite spots in Manhattan Beach, Cafe Wild, where the cinnamon french toast was tasty, and their mimosa pitcher might as well have been bottomless, for we couldn't finish it - and we really did try our best.

After brunch we strolled down to the boardwalk while admiring the stretch of coastline, the dozens of surfers, and the million cute dogs walking by. The day had somehow crept into late afternoon, and we decided that our indulgent brunch wasn't enough, so we headed to the ice cream shop.

As for this outfit - I haven't worn this jumpsuit in forever - or at least I didn't wear it even once last year, which I feel guilty about. It was another one of those pieces where I needed to hem it, and truthfully I should have sized down on this as well, because I had to safety pin it to keep it from sliding down. It's strapless and the weight of this fabric is just immense. It's probably the reason my suitcase was overweight! However from the moment I brought this jacket home last fall I'd imagined pairing it with this jumpsuit, and I felt like this trip would be the perfect time. I'm really pleased I got it wear it and photograph it.

Linking up with Pink Sole's How I Fall


  1. I love the shape of this jumpsuit and what a statement it makes - if you don't look closely, it could almost be a gown, albeit an extremely comfortable and casual one. I feel like it was just waiting for your trip to LA to really get its chance to shine, and that's exactly what it does in these photos. I also love how you styled it with both brown and white pieces, because they make the whole colour palette of the look come together so beautifully. Suffice it to say that if I had plans to visit anywhere warm in the near future, I'd want to wear an outfit like this while I was there :)

  2. California suits you, you look fabulous and rested. How gorgeous is this backdrop.
