While it’s almost always summer weather in Los Angeles, the summer season is unfortunately drawing to a close. I’ll miss the heat, shortened summer Fridays at work, beach days, being half-way tan and those long, sweet summer nights.
One of my absolute favorite bloggers is Mackenzie Horan. Her blog is one of the first I started reading regularly, and I always found her posts inspiring, yet still relatable. She has amazing, timeless taste and a drool-worthy boutique, Design Darling (seriously, I want ALL of it). Mackenzie lives in NYC, and while she’s posted some teases and vignettes of her apartment on her blog, we’ve never had the luxury of a full tour – until today. Thanks to the lovely team at Glitter Guide, we now can see Mackenzie’s chic apartment in all of it’s classic, blue and white glory. I love her style because I find it’s the perfect mix of color and whimsy, yet it still looks adult and clean.
|Love Mackenzie’s dress and shoes. And of course that puppy!|

This Sunday was so perfect because I literally had no plans. I slept in as long as I wanted after a fun night out in West Hollywood, then had the all day ahead of me without a single commitment.
Living in such a big city, I often find that I don’t take advantage enough of what LA has to offer. I get caught up in running errands, my job, my apartment, and just my own little bubble, so I don’t discover and relish this diverse, interesting city. Yesterday, I decided to change that and take advantage of both my lack of plans and LA’s great vintage shopping (unfortunately for me, but luckily for my wallet, it was all window shopping). Some of my favorite shops are on Melrose, in between Fairfax and La Brea, so I recommend walking along that area if you’re ever in ze City of Angels.
I started off at American Vintage. While they have a very photogenic sign, they also have a very large selection, and frankly I was just feeling lazy and didn’t have the patience to sift through all the clothes. So, I decided to skip out and head across the street to my favorite spot…..
