Top - Madewell, shorts - Cheap Monday (available at Karmaloop), shoes - Madewell
I'm not so thrilled with the quality of these photos, but life goes on, yeah? I wore this last Monday for a bike ride from Venice to Santa Monica, which was my first time riding a bicycle in years. And it was actually quite fun! If I lived out there, I would most definitely own a bike...
I like that these shorts are more skirt-like than shorts. I saved them a while ago on Pinterest and finally ended up buying them from Wasteland's brick and mortar Santa Monica location. They're probably going to be worn to death this summer, since they're so comfy - almost to the extent of most pajamas - and flowy and nonconstricting and everything desired for hot weather attire. Also worth mentioning is this top that I'd stalked on Madewell's website for some time before it sold out. It's kind of a modified version of the classic Breton stripes, which is quite nice.
After returning from Santa Monica, I headed to Seed Kitchen - a vegan restaurant in Venice - for seitan pepper steak and their amazing pomme fries. They are literally the best french fries I've ever had, and the restaurant is like a vegan fast food joint which is really cool. In Philly we have Blackbird Pizzeria and a few other vegetarian/vegan spots, but there's so much variety in the Venice area. Fresh veggie tacos, tofu scramble, endless varieties of sorbetto and even gelato, food trucks offering veggie sushi burritos and miniature cupcakes with decadent, fudgy chocolate icing... amazing.
