Rustic Hills

(MiH Jeans tunic, Mango leather jacket, Volcom Brand jeans, Vintage Versace bag, Dolce Vita from Dear Fieldbinder boots)

Whenever I'm home, I always make sure to hike up in the Palisades to my favorite spot, Will Rogers Park. With it's open fields of green grass and endless rows of trees, it's really a California dreamland. Just being outdoors feels amazing. I don't think I've gotten this much sun exposure in a while! The rustic, western setting and beautiful ocean views at the top of the hills get me inspired every time I make the hike. Wearing a worn-in denim tunic, some of my favorite Volcom jeans, and a beanie thrown on last minute, I nuzzled up to horses and ran around the yard foolishly with my arms spread out (pretty refreshing). By the way, I'm totally crushing on beanies and I don't know why I haven't brought them back with me to NYC. They are for sure on my "things to-pack" list. For now, I'm soaking in the SoCal sunshine and enjoying every minute of it.

Such a country paradise in the middle of L.A.! I'm soaking up some more California sunshine before I have to leave, too. Adore the pairing of the chambray and leather. x
