One of the most fun and girly things to do in LA is to have Afternoon Tea at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena. The Langham is home to my absolute all time FAVORITE high tea service, which makes for the ultimate excuse to dress up and hang out with my gal pals. Dressing for tea is definitely a big part of the appeal because you can (and should) have so much fun with it!
Nothing says “high tea attire” quite like a tea length/midi dress. I love that this particular midi has a floral pattern and color palette that is perfect for the season, but I decided to pair it with a western waist belt to add a little edge. I’m not one for TOO much femininity, so a cool belt and some patent leather boots is a great way to balance it all out. And speaking of patent leather boots… I haven’t taken these off since I got them 2 weeks ago. I cannot get enough of these boots right now, and to my surprise and delight they actually go with a lot more things in my closet than I thought they would. Definitely getting my money’s worth. I may or may not have recently bought them in red as well….
I’ve been doing a lot of shopping lately surrounding the holidays, and last week I visited the cutest little boutique in Toluca Lake called Rose & Sage where I actually picked up this dress and the blazer. It was my first time at the boutique and I have to say I think it’s my new favorite! They have such a great curated collection with a wide variety in price points – everything from $20 sweaters to slightly higher end pieces from labels like Majorelle, Rachel Pally, Michael Stars, etc. What really sealed the whole deal though is that the fashionable and sweet owner Soraya loves stocking LA based brands as well like dRA Los Angeles, Clayton, Bishop & Young, and more. She’s got a great eye, an adorable space, and she’s supporting other LA based brands – she’s a girl after my own heart. If you’re in the area or are in need of a cozy wardrobe refresh (or a place to place to pick up some gifts for the holidays, wink wink), be sure to stop by Rose & Sage! You will love!
