The Outskirts

Monday, October 21, 2013

Get the look:
As industrial as it is, I find the view from my office's parking garage weirdly beautiful. I love the way the sun hits the LA skyline when I walk to my car right before sunset. Sure, the orange and pink hues are most likely a product of LA's wonderful pollution, but nevertheless—it's pretty. Sometimes Downtown LA feels like a world away from the Westside. While I don't think I'd ever like to actually live in this part of the city, I still enjoy my view of the city skyline from the outskirts of town.

Also, if I'm going to be honest, I had a photography-nerd moment when I took these photos. I think I've finally (after a year with my DSLR) gotten the hang of this whole self-timer business. Plus, the golden hour lighting is my favorite and the warm skyline somehow matched my new lace cardigan. This piece is a little different from what I normally wear, but I can definitely see myself channeling my inner bag lady for the next month and throwing it over everything!

P.S. happy Monday :) also...where did October go?
