With Summer pretty much here and it being constantly hot in LA, I have been in an ice cream craze (even more so than I am normally). There's nothing like having a sweet creamy cold dessert on a warm sunny LA day! AND getting in great dessert Instagram shots!
It's a goal of mine to try as many ice cream spots in LA as I possibly can. Please see below for all of the creamy goodness I had this past month! :)
Over Memorial Day weekend, the boyfriend and I decided to visit the LA Zoo, since it's something we haven't done in a very long time. It was a little gloomy and cloudy but I suppose that's why they call it "June Gloom" but I didn't mind. The sun came out a little later during the day so it got better! :)
We saw a lot of pouty faces and cranky children that day but what's a family fun filled day without some tears, right? That just means you had so much fun and tired yourself out!
I forgot how big the zoo was and it definitely came with a ton of walking so I understand all of the pouty faces. I threw on a white tee with a lightweight grey trench and some denim cut offs for a day out. Because I knew the day came with a lot of walking, I made sure to wear comfy sneakers to help me get through the day. I wish I was one of those girls that can take outfit pictures completely dressed up with heels and cute dresses on, but that wouldn't be me! Once in a while, I'll change it up.. I promise. :)

Wore this outfit on the last day in SF the other weekend. We met up with a friend for brunch in the city and had the most amazing bacon I've ever tasted! The spot was called Sweet Maple and they call their bacon, "millionaire bacon". I now know why! It was absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious with the perfect balance of salty and sweetness. You can see the picture of my meals in my previous Foodie Friday post!
Anyways, since we were going to be walking around and flying back to LA that evening, I decided to wear my slip on Converse sneakers and a comfy outfit. I put together my green utility jacket from The Loft and a new grey button up blouse from Cotton On for a perfect outfit for getting around! As you know, I love my basics and love mixing and matching what I can. I've come to learn that I love comfortable staple pieces that I are versatile to create new outfits constantly. I tend to love fabrics like cotton and linen since they feel the best on me. I don't like feeling itchy with clingy and scratchy fabrics so I make sure I look at the material content before purchasing. Been working for me these days! :)
