DAY TRIPPING FOR INSPIRATION

Lately I have been spending a lot of my time at home. This makes sense because I now work from home and most of us spend more time at work than at home. Now I am spending all my time at both, which is kind of weird to be honest! When we had the factory downtown it would be natural for me to take mini day trips, even if it was just popping over to Little Tokyo or The Arts District at lunchtime with Alfonso. These days going to the grocery store feels like going to Disneyland. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my home, but a girl has gotta get out and get inspired sometimes!

Brunch at Highly Likely, Alfonso color coding and me bumping into an old friend on the street corner. 

So our new thing is mandatory weekend daytripping. The great thing about Los Angeles is that there are so many cute pockets of culture to explore and more springing up all the time. We love discovering these places as a family and use these daytrips as an excuse to get out and get re-energized for the week ahead. Last weekend we spent the day in Highland Park on Figueroa and York Boulevard just walking around and discovering. 

Finding inspiration in Album covers and Posters

We wandered in and out of the boutiques, cafes and record stores. I love taking photos on the street to refer back to colors and images that spark ideas for new collections. We found a vinyl shop called GIMME GIMME and when Alfonso asked about a super rare record by the 70's Jazz Fusion group Cortex the owners friend (who was visiting him) said "I have that one at my house around the corner, I was going to sell it but I would rather just give it to you" he quickly ran around the corner and when he returned he handed Alfonso a pristine copy and totally refused payment, just happy that someone who would enjoy it. If you are shopping for vinyl in L.A. be sure to visit this special spot.

Lenita stocks some of the rarest and most beautiful flowers in all of Los Angeles. They even have a subscription service. 

Next we stopped by LENITA and saw beautiful rare flowers in the most eye popping colors. We topped off our trip at the almost never open, emerald green apothecary style Flamingo Estate boutique and grabbed a delicious pastel sugar cookie. Daytripping is the best because it's something you can do even if you don't live in a big city like Los Angeles. There is always something unique, interesting and surprising to be seen wherever you are - sometimes you just have to look for it. 

Happy Sunday and I hope you enjoyed coming along on our adventure and are feeling inspired for the new week ahead too!
