Hello from California! My boyfriend and I are traveling up the West Coast for two weeks, driving from LA all the way to Portland. Four days in, it feels so good to be away — to have only two pairs of pants and spotty internet and to sleep in a different place every night. It’s one of my favorite feelings in the world; directly tied with the feeling of home.

Above are some shots from our first (less than) 24 hours in LA. We ate dinner at Lucques (YUM), slept at a friend’s gorgeous home in Hancock Park, had breakfast at Cafe Stella, browsed Mohawk, and headed out of town. Hoping to go back soon and spend some more time — I love that bougainvillea-filled city.

(I’m also instagramming too much if you want to follow along :)

  7. You’re really lucky to be able to do that and to have the perfect partner to share this with. I’m looking forward to the summer to discover the united states more and those creative communities that seems so tied and close. Road tripping is one of the best feelings in the world and you have such a great talent that allows you to share it with us like that. thanx.
