I’m in Los Angeles for the week with my parents and my sister, Juj. We are staying at the most gorgeous compound, Rivergate House. (It used to be Bette Davis’s estate!!) It is located in Glendale right behind Griffith Park and was seriously so beautiful and relaxing. If you are looking for a vacation rental near LA, I highly recommend!! We were in Channing House, a 2 bedroom guest house on the property. There are 3-4 other rentals on the property with a shared garden and pool. Rivergate backs up to the LA Equestrian Center so there are even two horses in the back….. so CUTE. We loved the location, decor, and whole vibe.
I documented my looks day to day while on the trip… check them out with links to shop below!
This was such a special day of our trip. We made our way south of Los Angeles to the Laguna Beach area. We met up with my sorority sister, Devon, who lives near by and it was such a joy to see her. We also drove by our old house and church, so it was super special. We wanted to see the beach at least once on the trip and Devon suggested Victoria Beach. It was so lovely. I wore a lightweight linen blazer (thrifted) with some high rise mom jeans (Pac Sun) and some super fun accessories. Outfit details below!

On our 3rd day we wandered Melrose and picked up some Urth Cafe. SO many people recommended going there and it was honest to God the worst latte I’ve ever had lol. I didn’t let that get me down though!! It was such a beautiful day. Temperatures were in the low 60’s so this lightweight silk top (thrifted) paired with a blazer was the perfect combo. If you’re on Melrose, stop into the Restoration Hardware. They have a rooftop garden with stunning views and that gorgeous wall of mirrors that are perfect for pictures!

We got soOOooOOooOo LA for our second day in California and went to the Warner Brother’s Studio Tour. It was honestly awesome! I’m an avid movie and tv watcher - so it was cool to see actual sets used for some of my favorite shows and movies. I highly recommend going, it’s worth the money. I opted for a comfortable and warm look (it was a cool low 60’s which i was loving by the way***). I’ve been wanting to get some cargo pants for awhile and Target had some for $28.00…… the price was definitely right! I was kind of feeling badass in this Kim Possible look. Shop this look below!

I wore this look out to dinner to Yamashiro Hollywood. It has the most stunning view of Los Angeles and delicious Japanese food. We caught up with our Los Angeles based cousins and had such a lovely evening! Outfit details are linked below. The cardigan is 70% off and has very limited stock so grab it while you can!! I’ll be posting better pictures of these shoes eventually… they are so so chic.
