Have you guys been to Los Angeles? It has to be one of my fave cities! I was just recently there visiting one of my besties and I always have such a good time! It’s been so cold and a bit miserable in Toronto these days, so it was perfect timing to escape to some sunshine and warmth.
Usually I am all about the planning for trips (I’m a bit of a logistics psycho), but this time around I was down to just go with the flow and only had a few spots I wanted to hit up. One of the main reasons why I love LA is because there is just so much to do! There are so many different pockets that have different vibes to them, that it’s easy to fill up the days. One of my favourite things to do on trips is ‘socializing’ aka drinking and eating. I could sit at a cool restaurant with some wine and snacks and chat for hours; LA has endless opportunities for just that!
While I was there we spent some time in Venice, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Downtown LA and Malibu. It was definitely a packed trip. My friend lives in West Hollywood, which is such a perfect area to stay. It’s easy to really get anywhere, and there is tons to do right there in WeHo.
Here’s a round up of my outfits from my recent Los Angeles trip, plus some places you should definitely check out if you’re in the LA area – some that I’ve listed are from my visit in October.
