Weekend Getaway..

Our boys are finally off for Spring Break and we are headed down to the Santa Monica area today for a few days of goofing off. One of the things on our list is a tour of the Warner Brother's Studios. My kids are huge fans of The Big Bang Theory and they film it there. I think they are hoping to see a star, maybe? Also they have never done the whole Hollywood thing so we are going to check out Graumann's, see a movie down there and maybe grab a map of the star's homes. All the cliche things.

On my list is to relax and hopefully shop and I would love to get to The Ivy for lunch, The Getty museum and hopefully hit Newport Beach too if we get that far. The weather had been a bit rainy and sunny, so I wasn't sure what to pack. We are really in full Spring now, so I wanted to pack some new and bright things. Here's a few things I'll bring.


My new Tom's in chambray. Love the suede back.

A few scarves from H&M for the Spring /Summer.  



Love these Tom's with cuffed jeans- maybe a white button down and my chambray color scarf above.

Love these bangles I picked up for like nothing to go with my nicer bracelets. A bit of color blocking. Forever 21. About $4 for the whole lot!


Bringing this poppy t-shirt to wear with my mixed blue scarf from Italy.

Love these earrings that I grabbed at Forever 21.  Very cute with all the brights now.
 


My favorite J Crew jersey scarf from my pal Kim.




Two things I will add to this mix will be white jeans, bright blue jeans and a few chunky sweaters. Also my aviators, wayfarers and brown hobo style Kate Spade bag I've had for years and still looks great.

What do you pack on small trips?

  2. I am the worst packer...ever! I don't now why or how, but I am! I love your new Toms and those bangles are darling. My daughter and I were just in Santa Monica/Brentwood and had lunch at Lemonade. Very cool place and they have several LA locations! I hope the weather clears up for you...it's a bit cold and rainy. My sons baseball tournament was just cancelled. They say it never rains in CA...I beg to differ! have fun!

    1. Annie, I will check out Lemonade. It sounds cute. I am actually over-whelmed at the choices down here. So many great places to eat! You really have a ton more than we do in the Bay Area. Can't believe the weather. It snowed on the grapevine on the way down! I hope the sun shows up!

  7. Kim,
    Hope you are enjoying your LA trip...at least the weather is holding up! I was going to email you, but I couldn't find where to email you...have you been to LACMA? http://www.lacma.org/ They have a great exhibit right now called Metropolis. Kids get a free pass for one year and their parents get in free with child.

  9. Kim,

    You are totally style-in here! Great choices and I love the Toms with the cuffed jeans.

    So funny we were so close to you! We spent 2 days at Disneyland and experienced several hours of Monsoon rain on Saturday. The temperatures were much cooler than I expected. Looks like you had a wonderful trip to the museum and I hope you squeezed a little shopping in too.

  10. So nice to find you and your blog!!
    Our son goes to UCLA, so we love to go down and visit regularly. There is so much to do and see in SoCal. It is so different from NorCal isn't it?
    It's been years since I've been to Los Gatos... my sister and I were just talking about heading there for the day.
    We should meet up!
    Hope you had yourselves a wonderful getaway. Loved all your clothes choices... too cute!
