Bottega Louie is one of my favorite spots in downtown Los Angeles. They have delicious French food, as well as the most beautiful pastry cases. It’s incredibly hard to go in and resist their tasty macarons. They have so many great flavors, but I’m a sucker for the salted caramel! Bottega Louie also has a great cocktail menu and the baristas do such a wonderful job on their presentation. Wait until you see the edible flower on my pretty drink! For an evening downtown I wore this pretty pleated dress with a trench coat and some nude sandals. When you go to Bottega Louie, it’s hard not to get all girly and dolled up! It’s pretty much a given!
Happy Friday everyone! I have so many amazing photos to share with you from my trip to Alaska! The wifi hasn’t been that strong on my phone but I’m glad I can get it a little more easily on my computer. This trip has kind of forced me to have a phone detox and to be honest it’s been really nice. I’m so used to needing to be on my phone so often but not having service has forced me to put it down and focus on being in the moment. Although, of course, I have been saving some snaps for later! It’s hard not to! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
