Olive green is usually a color I pull out and wear quit often during the fall season. I love the military-inspired feel of this jacket but also an updated look with the button tab sleeve details. This is a quick and easy outfit I threw together with the idea of being a little dressy while still being comfortable. Which makes this my countdown to the weekend so I can wear this look again!

I’ve been trying to prolong my summer wardrobe for as long as possible and with last week’s quick trip to Los Angeles, this was the perfect opportunity to do just that.

A quick visit to the contemporary Broad Museum was a nice getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Tips: book your free tickets online 2 months before; the museum’s exterior is best captured early in the morning before cars line the stree; and parking is cheaper across the street at the Walt Disney Concert Hall lot.

There were a few hit and misses with the food. Hits: Urth Caffe and Brodard (always, in my book!). I’ll spare you the mediocre!

I wanted to check out LA’s Smorgasburg (the west coast version of Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg) but ran out of time – maybe with the next visit!

P.S. Did you enter for your chance to win $50?
