Day Trippin'

I've got the Travel Bug... ALWAYS!  But the extra free time and vacation funds don't allow me to be off exploring far away lands as much as I would like, so I've mapped out a few very local day trips to keep me immersed in different cultures & cuisine along with a bit of consumerism!

First in a little series - Olvera Street in Downtown Los Angeles:

The Fashion:

Cute cross-body coin purse
What I didn't capture was the pretty, cut-out cap sleeves.  Such a must-have!
Love these leather huarache sandals.  I wore black ballet flats on this boiling hot day and my feet were not happy with me... These were the perfect answer!

The Food:

Of course there are a TON of yummy places for amazing Mexican food (check out all the options HERE), but a late afternoon sweet tooth craving led me to this highly recommended bakery tucked away in one of the hidden corridors... Caramel filled churro - Yes, Please!
The Fun:

Handcrafted wrestling masks... I feel a Halloween costume inspiration coming on!

Everything is so colorful and happy!  I would love to do a collage of the tin hearts in my entryway.

And Frida:

My treasure of the day.  I just love her.
Great Farmer's Market tote
