This is the last set of photos I have from LA to share (I have even impressed myself with how well I have dragged this trip out), but worry not.... I AM GOING BACK!! Perhaps no surprises there, I think I was pretty clear in saying I wanted to go back the second I arrived home. It got to me like no other place has before, and I have been looking for an excuse to book another flight ever since I got back. Well, a really exciting project came through that was just the excuse I needed - so this time next week I will be flying back to LA, for a week of work and sunshine. BUT, the big difference is, I am going on my own.
I have never travelled alone like this before, but I feel it's an experience I want to have. I am fully aware I might hate it and feel incredibly lonely, but it's just a week and I'll cope. There is an equal chance I will love it, get loads of work done, and get to explore even more of this amazing city. Either way, I will of course document it all with you. And if any of you have travelled alone in this way before, please do let me know of any tips of tricks you think are useful!
I am getting myself a little (well, it's actually far from little!) Air B&B so I can properly set up a home for a week, where I can work, cook my own meals and generally pretend I live in LA for a little while. Work wise, it's perfect to create Summer content - I am going to film everyday, shoot whenever I can, take tonnes of rolls of film to work through, and generally try to be as creative as I can possibly be. I have so many ideas for videos and blog posts already which I am so excited about, and I am just generally feeling ready for an adventure and whatever that may bring.
Some guaranteed sunshine means the Summer wardrobe will be back out in full force again. There are so many pieces I have that so far I have only managed to wear once, that I am dying to get back out of the wardrobe. This gorgeous skirt from & Other Stories is far too good to only be worn once! This time I styled it up for an evening look (it kinda ended up looking like a dress), and the wind was on our side when we were shooting to really show off the shape of the skirt. If you watched my recent high end haul then you will have seen these insane Saint Laurent shoes already... but if not then say hello to my new two strap sandals!! I bought these while I was in LA, they were one of those no brainer pieces for me. I wear this style of shoe every Summer, and finding a pair that are comfortable is like gold at the end of the rainbow. These are the sort you can walk all day in, never tire of, and the subtle details like the square toe and patent leather makes them feel luxurious in an understated way. I am so glad I got them, and you can expect to see lots of them over the coming months as it goes without saying that these go with everything.
