Just a Little Crop

Necklace: Forever21; Clutch: Clare Vivier}

I wore this look for a lovely Saturday evening out with my mom.  The last few weeks have been a blur of traveling and hanging out with out of town friends that I'd had to forgo quite a few Sundays with my mom (every Sunday, for as long as I can remember, my mom and I spend the day together eating yummy food, watching movies, shopping, catching up on Downton Abbey, cooking or just plain old hanging out together). 

Los Angeles sometimes gets mistakenly characterized as a city with no culture.  I think it's available to us in abundance - you can find a show, music or theater, every night of the week and art is everywhere, not just in museums.  The Broad Stage is a beautiful and intimate space in Santa Monica with a diverse calendar of performance including theater, opera, dance, symphony and more.  I was able to get us last minute tickets on Craigslist to see Paris Combo.  We spent a perfect evening listening and even dancing to the group's lively French pop and jazz selections. 

I should also mention that we had an absolutely delectable meal at Via Veneto in Santa Monica.  I didn't keep to a French theme in choosing our restaurant for the night because a meal at Via Veneto is an absolute treat.  If you haven't been, then make sure you do if you find yourself in SM. 

I hope everyone has a lovely week!
