The Line Hotel pt. 2

Lounging around in my room at the Line Hotel a few weeks ago, in all adidas. I picked up these Originals By Rita Ora kimono print leggings at Urban Outfitters, intrigued by the traditional Japanese design. When I'm in my comfort zone, expect me in something simple and comfortable. Hence the T-shirt & leggings look. I already miss my hipster little room LA <3

Denim Day 2016

Today is Denim Day in LA and the US. According to, it all started with a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where the rape conviction was overturned, ruling that the rap victim was wearing tight jeans and must have helped her rapist remove the jeans, thereby consenting to the rape. The next day, the women in the Italian Parliament all wore jeans to work in solidarity with the victim. And in 1999, Denim Day was born in LA. By wearing denim, you can help raise awareness of rape and sexual assault, because it is never, ever ok to assault or be assaulted. Spread the word!

The Line Hotel pt. 1

I'm still in the process of sorting out all the photos I took during my LA trip, so they'll be coming up over the next couple of days. One of my favorite destinations was the Line Hotel in K-town. My girl friend introduced me to this cute little hotel, and I wanted to check out the place myself. The bar and lounge area really is the perfect to enjoy some drinks and music. I grabbed my Free People dress (worn here in a previous post) and these suede Steve Madden sandals for the occasion. Come back to see part 2 of this series <3

ロスへ行った時の写真は整理中なので、まだまだブログアップは続きますよ〜!お気に入りの行き先の中で、ハリウッド近辺のラインホテルがとてもお洒落でした。友達に紹介されて、自分も泊まってみたいなぁと思っていたんです。バーとラウンジエリアの雰囲気も良く、飲んで音楽を楽しむのにぴったりです。前に着用したFree Peopleのワンピと、Steve Maddenのサンダルを着てちょっとお洒落度アップ。パート2もアップするので、チェックしてね♡

Venice Beach

Venice Beach is the epitome of a Californian oceanside paradise. You got your cloudless clear blue skies, vast ocean, palm trees swaying in the wind, colorful graffiti walls (and palm trunks!), the quirky souvenir shops along the Boardwalk, cafes and clothing boutiques on Abbot Kinney... and the list goes on. My friend Tina introduced me to areas I've never explored, including a delicious ice cream parlor from Portland called "Salt & Straw" where we tried a goat cheese & black olive brittle ice cream. Coming straight from freezing Japan, this ocean breeze was exactly what I needed to revive myself. Thanks Tina for a much-needed day trip!

ベニスビーチは、ざっくり言うとカリフォルニアの海岸沿いパラダイスの縮図です。雲が一つない青空、広々とした海、風に揺れるたくさんのヤシの木、カラフルなグラフィーティ、ボードウオークにずらりと並ぶ数多くの面白いお土産屋さん、アボットキニーのお洒落カフェとブティック・・などなど。友達のティナちゃんが、私の知らないベニスビーチを色々紹介してくれました!特に気に入ったのは、ポートランド出身のアイスクリームショップ「ソルト&ストロー」。山羊の乳とブラックオリーブをカラメル状にした粒のアイスを食べました!すごくさっぱりして美味しかった♪ 日本の寒い冬から、すずしい波風でちょっと生き返りました。ティナちゃん、連れて行ってくれてありがとう!
