Greetings from Downtown LA! In honor of the LOFT Friends & Family Event (get 40% off your purchase!), I’ve partnered with LOFT to treat myself and my good friend, Nina on a little girl’s date. Some of you may remember Nina from my favorite petite fashion blogger posts series, and I am forever envious of how she pulls off slouchy and oversized styles so chic and effortlessly. Check her out on her blog and Instagram!
For our little date, I instantly gravitated toward this amazing navy and white floral print blazer. It’s such a fun and cheeky piece, and now I need to be invited to a garden party so I can bust this cutie out again! I paired it with comfy crop jeans, a cotton tee, and a pair of strappy sandals (LOFT from a few seasons ago). Nina took these cute striped skinny pants and added her rocker-chic aethetic with a vintage band tee, her go-to leather moto jacket, and fun colorful shoes.
Nina lives in fabulous DTLA, another thing for which I’m a bit envious. I’ve always loved the gritty feeling of the city, gorgeous turn of the century architecture, and hip eateries and coffee shops. So of course, I was happy to have Nina take me around her ‘hood.
First, we started the afternoon with a glass of wine at her cute DTLA loft where we did some catching up. Then we headed out to explore a hip little area of the Arts District where a good friend of hers has opened one of the best new restaurants in town, Manuela (we had the pleasure of having dinner with the chef and his dad a little later this evening, too). After walking around the Arts District, we headed back to catch the sunset on her building’s rooftop with a bottle of champagne, the DTLA skyline, and some much-needed girl talk.
Thank you to LOFT for sponsoring this post, and be sure to check out the Friends and Family Event going on right now!
