Golden Hour Glow

There are few things I enjoy more than having great food with great company - all while rocking an outfit I love. This past weekend was just that! Last Friday night, my friend and I went to go see The Revenant (which was pretty good but also quite gruesome) and then went on a 1:00 am excursion to my favorite 24 hour donut spot, DK's Donuts. The next day, my boyfriend and I went out to Venice and had a lovely afternoon getting brunch at Gjusta, drinks at a spot along the boardwalk, and taking a nice long walk around the area. We ended up in Santa Monica to shoot this look, which we also managed to do right at my favorite time of the day: golden hour~ Afterwards, we got some more drinks at Areal on Main Street and then ended the night back in Venice with tacos and french fries at Komodo. If you're in the LA area and have yet to try any of these places out, do so now! You'll thank me later. 

For this look, I wanted to rock something light and casual with a bit of edge. This off-the-shoulder dress was the perfect choice for a day out, and it can easily transition into a night look as well. I've always been a fan of this style, and maaay or may not have gone on a bit of an off-the-shoulder shopping binge the other day. Regardless, expect to see this style continue to show up in upcoming posts.  My OTK boots added the level of edge that I was aiming for, and they paired just right with my Michael Kors satchel. Lastly, I threw on my ChloĆ© shades because, well, they're my favorite and I love them. Good enough reason, right?

  1. Hey Sydney!

    Really loving your outfit. You really nailed the casual/edgy look.

    The west side of LA is such a fun place isn't it? There are so many great places for food and drinks. Areal is one of my favorites for happy hour or to grab a drink before a night out. Glad you enjoyed your weekend!
