I had to be downtown last weekend in the evening so Matthew and I decided to make a date night out of it. Even though we live only 15 miles away from downtown LA, traffic can make it crazy to get there. We usually just stick on our side of the city so it was fun to venture out. I always love being downtown. The buildings are so tall, the streets get really empty in the evenings, and there are so many great restaurants. It also reminds me of a funny outfit post from 2010 when a bird landed on Matthew’s shoulder! That husband of mine is quite the animal whisperer!
I am all about jumpsuits now that it’s a little warmer out. I think they’re fun to wear during the day, but especially at night, if the material is right. I love this striking blue one from Greylin. Unfortunately they’re sold out of the short version, but they do have a long one available. It also looks like there are a bunch of other blue rompers online. I love the combo of blue with black, so I added this black blazer. The purse was a bday gift from Matthew when we were dating, so I love any excuse to wear it! I like how the print of the bag stood out against my otherwise solid outfit.
What are you all up to this weekend? We’re celebrating my brother’s 25th bday which will be so fun and we have some friends that are in LA from out of town. I’m not sure what the weather will be like but I’m dying to spend a few hours outside. Maybe we’ll go on a run or hike with Ginger!
