in just a few weeks, jane and i are heading to the quaint village of sag harbor located on the south fork in the hamptons. i've never been but can't contain my excitement. channeling nautical motif, woven wicker basket details, and naturally — an entire suitcase of navy & white.

we're staying at a new hotel venture of a friend of mine: baron's cove. already dreaming of seafood and harbor views! will report back with the trip's treasure.

last week, i was brutally ill and stayed home from work all week. halfway through, i headed home to my parents' house to truly relax and recover (the abundant green, fresh air, and peace & quiet of the suburbs worked miracles). on friday, i was finally feeling better so my mom & i ventured into princeton -- a nearby favorite of ours, especially in the summer. 

because i was so sick, i only packed pajamas and yoga pants for this trip. i had to get a little creative when it came time to actually get dressed. i found this j.crew factory striped tee in my sister's giveaway pile...not sure why she wanted to get rid of it; it's perfect! i also sported shorts from high school (when i preferred much skimpier clothing....) but tied an old chambray around my waist. ideal outfit for a beautiful day walking around campus and town.

this weekend, one kings lane hosted a wonderfully vibrant flower workshop / instameet alongside prop stylist anthony zio at their tribeca photo studio. it was a pleasant surprise to run into so many friends (follow: ben, emma, erica, sara, jessica), sip veuve rosé, and craft floral arrangements to our heart's content. i opted for a pastel piece (bottom photo) with light pink lilac, peonies, juliet garden roses, sage, raspberries, mint springs, and of course, a mint julep-esque vase.

thank you to the petal purveyors - frances palmerputnam flowershops petunia, and fox fodder farms - for providing such beauty and thank you to one kings lane & anthony for the *ideal* event.

while this is the last recap post of my march trip to LA, i'm hoping it's the beginning of a city-guide series of the west coast! it's no secret that i love family and i used to go on vacation each summer to a different spot in the golden state which is when the love affair began.

on our last full day, we went out to west hollywood and beverly hills! the first stop was at the iconic beverly hills hotel. if you're a fan of troop beverly hills (phyllis nefler forever), you'll appreciate this landmark even more. we were treated to an intimate grand tour of the entire property — my favorite part was learning of the old hollywood celebrities and their legendary stories while staying at the hotel.  

lunch was had at gracias madre in weho — vegan mexican cuisine in an environment that is too beautiful to miss. we ordered obligatory guac + chips and i sampled the snow cone cocktail because, vacation. also enjoyed: brussel sprouts with almond pesto + cilantro and a veggie bowl that contained braised lentils, peanut sauce, spinach, coconut rice, and pumpkin seeds. YES. after, we walked around melrose for some window shopping in the sun. 

dinner was at hinoki & the bird and while i don't have photos [read: very dark] it was one of my absolute favorite meals. lobster rolls on black brioche buns, double fried chicken with lemon aioli, and a wonderful kale salad = ideal food. the service was also impeccable!

until next time, LA!
