Petal to the Metal

Moody Florals

I hope you all had a great weekend! We’ve been keeping busy exploring our new neighborhood! I wore this moody floral dress yesterday for a trip to a flea market with some girlfriends. I’m hugely grateful that I have some girlfriends in LA who already know the hot haunts and are willing show this gal the ropes! It takes away a lot of the uncertainty of moving to a new place.

When comfort is key, there’s nothing better than pairing a dress or skirt with some metallic slip-ons. I can’t get enough of these shoes – last seen with a dress here and with a pleated skirt here. Metallic slip-ons keep the outfit casual, but add a little bit of edge which is why I will wear them until there are holes in the soles.

Harlowe joined me in the petal to the metal movement without me even realizing it. We picked these shoes up for her a few days ago and she has not taken them off. She keeps asking strangers if they like her shoes and they look at her and smile, then say, “yes!” and she giggles.

What Harlowe Wore: Old Navy floral dress and Old Navy bow strap flats (both on sale for President’s Day!) 

Mini with sneakers minimal jewelry

Wearing: Shop Princessa dress c/o / Phillip Lim Pashli bag / Vans Metallic Slip On / Karen Walker Super Super sunnies / Rocksbox and TIffany & Co Rings 

Any flea markets you recommend in LA? What about your favorite shops?

    Love shopping on Abbot Kinney in Venice for one-of-a-kind pieces. The Rose Bowl is probably my favorite flea market, though we don’t get to go as often as I’d like!

    Always, Anita

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying your new home and have girlfriends to show you the inside hot-spots! I really like this mix of floral and metallic. I’m a huge moody floral fan, which I guess I’ve been slightly shying away from during this crazy winter we’ve been having on the east coat. LOVE Harlowe’s shoes, and love even more that she matched you in both the dress and shoe categories.

    This dress! At first I thought it was floor length but I do love the summery hem on it- perfect for the beautiful weather I’m sure LA is having. Hope it’s going well!
