    First Day of Summer at Kenneth Hahn Park

      TOP: Thrifted (Acemi)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  BACKPACK: Ted Baker London  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV (similar)           Today my husband, puppy, and I went back to the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area to hike some of the trails.  Last time we went there we did everything else.  Check out my first post if you want to know what else there is to do.  We thought it would be a fun thing to do on the first day of summer.  It’s not warm enough to go to the beach.  It was pretty crowded because of Father’s Day but it was still super fun.  I wore this top that I thrifted.  I picked…

    What I Wore: Hollywood Reservoir Hike

    T-SHIRT: H&M  |  JEANS: Asos  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  BACKPACK: Primark  |   SUNGLASSES: Zero UV (similar)           I’ve been wanting to blog this t-shirt because I think it is so cute!  I had my eye on it for so long and then it went on sale at H&M.  I’m pretty sure I got it for only $6! I like how it just says “Saturday” and has a vintage feel.  I think it works really well paired with my mom jeans because they have a high waistline and this top is cropped.  It’s no longer available online but you may be able to find it in store.      …

    Exploring in Eyelet

    TOP: H&M (in store)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  BOOTS: Primark            I’ve been doing a lot of H&M sale rack shopping lately.  I am on a super tight budget with my wedding and honeymoon coming up and H&M always has a big selection of really affordable stuff.  I recently found this beautiful cotton top.  It actually reminds me a lot of the blouse I am wearing in this post (also from H&M).  I seriously love everything about it.  The volume, the fabric, and the color.  I am always drawn to a pretty white shirt.  The eyelet fabric is so feminine and lightweight.             Today we…

    Kings Canyon National Park

    Can you see the black bear to the left? The cub is a few feet behind, but behind a tree.   TOP: Forever 21  |  CARDIGAN: Forever 21  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx  |  BACKPACK: Primark           We spent Sunday at Kings Canyon National Park.  I’d never been there and it’s such a pretty park.  It’s right next to Sequoia.  The mountains there are super tall (around 11,000 ft.).  It has valleys,  waterfalls, and other unique sites.  We didn’t have a lot of time to hike because the road into the park is super long and curvy.  On one of the trails a…

    Cozy Grey Sweater at Sequoia National Park

    SWEATER: H&M  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  BACKPACK: Primark           This past weekend we (me and my fiancĂ©) decided to go on a little road trip camping trip to Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park.  It was a super last minute decision.  We decided to go on Friday and Left Saturday morning at 6am.  I just got a new car (blog post here) and wanted to take it on a little trip.  Sequoia is about a 4 hour drive from Los Angeles.  It’s the perfect little weekend destination to get away from city life.  That’s what I love about living in California is that there are…

    Back to Joshua Tree National Park

    T-SHIRT: Forever 21  |  SHORTS: Zaful  |  SHOES: Target  |  SUNGLASSES: Asos            We went back to Joshua Tree National Park the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.  We went there when we visited California two years ago (before we lived here).  When we went the first time we got there too late and were only able to see a little bit before the sun went down, so we’ve been wanting to come back.  We hardly got to see anything.  This trip was much more eventful because we got to go on actual hikes and see a lot of the main attractions.  I still want to go for a third time…

    Pelican Cove Park

    CARDIGAN: Forever 21  |  BACKPACK:  Primark           Since moving to Southern California, we have been trying to explore the surrounding areas and find all of the fun things to do.  I think there is literally so much to do that I could live here the rest of my life and never get bored.  Yesterday we went to Pelican Cove Park, which is about a half hour from my apartment.  It’s just a little ocean front park with hiking trails and a rocky shoreline.  There are some tide pools with lots of marine life and a sea cave (which we never found).  We saw pelicans and seagulls,…

    Hiking from the Griffith Observatory

    JEANS: Forever 21 |  CARDIGAN: H&M  |  T-SHIRT: H&M            My fiancĂ© and I went for a hike yesterday, starting at the Griffith Observatory.  This is one of my favorite spots around L.A.  You can see literally everywhere and it’s so beautiful.  We want to hike all the way to the Hollywood Sign soon but it’s 4 miles each way.  The sun was going to set and we didn’t have time.  We also tried doing this hike two years ago when we were in L.A. but it started pouring rain.  If you are visiting L.A. you must go to the Griffith Observatory.
