Good morning, you guys. We are officially moving today; the moving truck should be here in a few hours and I’m currently sitting in bed, sending a few emails and getting my to-do list in order for the day/wishing that I hadn’t packed up my coffee maker. I’m looking forward to getting settled into the new place and to start exploring the neighborhood and establishing a new routine. Manhattan Beach isn’t all that far away in reality (thirty minutes from where we live now) but I’ve lived within a a five mile radius on the Westside since I moved to LA after college so it’s going to feel pretty different. I’m excited!
Before I go do one last load of laundry and finish cleaning up, I wanted to share these photos that Amy and I took the other day after we grabbed tea at my new favorite restaurant in Venice, The Butcher’s Daughter. This grey Spendid dress is pretty much the best thing I own, and I’ve been wearing it nonstop – it’s so comfortable, it’s like wearing pajamas. I’ve been pairing the dress with my trusty Tretorns for an easy, on trend look that’s perfect for running around town doing work errands and is especially perfect for when you don’t have time to think about what to wear. Actually, I wish I hadn’t packed it so I could throw it on today. Darn.
Have a good one, and wish me luck!
