I love the golden light in these photos.  We took them at Kent’s place in downtown right around sunset.  Seriously such a photoshoot-ready apartment!

We arrived in DC earlier tonight and we’ll be here until the 23rd so we have a good amount of time to explore the city.  I brought tons of outfits to shoot for you guys, but unfortunately I didn’t get to bring my big camera since Sara and I share, so I’ll have to use my Samsung or meet up with a local photographer!  Hopefully I can find some cool backdrops that you won’t find in California 🙂

ON THE GO

Time is flying faster than ever here in LA.  I leave for D.C. tomorrow and I haven’t packed one thing so the stress is definitely starting to build up.  I’m gunna wake up early and get some things done before I go to the nail salon for a fresh mani.  Am I the only one who panics if they don’t get their nails done right before a trip?  I’m gunna stick with a neutral color…. maybe a whitish-pink 🙂

Here are some photos I took yesterday with my new friend Kent Avery, a really talented photographer I just recently met.  This was my first time shooting with him and I really love the photos that came out of it.  We were talking about possibly taking a trip up to Big Sur or somewhere with a cool landscape for a photoshoot.  I think it’s about time I do a cool shoot like that, no?!

A DAY AT LACMA

Hi guys!

Today was busssssy– just how I like it.  This morning I paid the Berri Goldfarb PR showroom a visit and got some really cute things that I can’t wait to show you guys!  I got some stunning jewelry pieces that are to die for.  Afterwards I went to LACMA for an event with YOOX.  We got to see a private tour of the ”Reigning Men” exhibition which featured fashion in menswear over many centuries and continents.  It was such a cool thing to see… I’ll be posting all the pics and writing a bit more about it later, but for now you can check out my latest Instagram to see one of my favorite pieces from the collection 🙂

This was my look for the first half of the day, before I went home and changed to prep for a photoshoot downtown.  I love this button dress… it’s the perfect length for these sky high boots.  You would be amazed how hard it is to find a dress that is the right length for these boots… it’s not as easy as it looks!  If it’s too long you look like you’re wearing jeans, and if it’s too short, well, then it’s too short.  I’m happy this dress made the cut!

Who else is as excited for bikini season as I am?!  I’m building up a serious craving for sand in my toes, salty hair, and cruising down PCH listening to music with the car windows rolled down.  Ahhhh that’s like paradise to me haha.  These are a few of my favorite bikinis that I’ve been wearing lately.  My favorites are the crochet one and the pink… What are yours?!

SOME BEACHY FUN FACTS:
Favorite song to listen to on the beach: Jammin’ by Bob Marley or Amber by 311.
Beachside drink of choice? Ice cold beer.
One thing you can’t go to the beach without? SPF, sunnies, and a hat!
Favorite beach? West Street in Laguna Beach
Bikini or one piece?  I used to only wear bikinis, but now I love both!!
Beach tip: as soon as you get on the sand TAKE OFF YOUR SANDALS.  Shoebies are frowned upon by Californians 😉
Ever been saved by a lifeguard?  Yes haha.

A PONYTAIL AND A CHOKER

Hi cuties!

What to do when you’re sick but you still wanna dress up and look nice for the day…. Throw that hair in a ponytail and spice it up with a choker! That’s exactly what I did today and I really enjoyed it.  I don’t normally wear my hair up, ok I RARELY wear my hair up, but it’s nice with a little change.  I might need to trade in my nerdy scrunchie for an actual hair band though… But that scrunchie is life!!  This reminds me I need to do a post on scrunchies and why you need them in your life.

Right now Austin and I just got to the Rihanna concert! It’s always been my dream to see her perform so I’m very excited. See a little of it on my Snapchat: hannamonty.  Bye for now! xx

WALK THIS WAY

Hi my loves!

I have to start off by saying Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there in the world!  Lets thank our moms for everything that they have done for us, and continue to keep doing.  WE LOVE YOU <3

Since my mom is still in Sweden, we didn’t get to spend the day with her, but I want to do something special for her when she gets back on Tuesday.  Instead I went to Austin’s moms Mother’s Day Brunch at the country club and then spent time with my grandma all day.  I’m still a little sick with a bad cough so I had to keep it mellow and rest up for a full and busy week ahead.  Now I’m off to bed…. goodnight!

It’s Friiiiiday!  Today it rained a lot here in OC/LA so I wanted to put some sunny pictures here on the blog.  How pathetic is that?  One day of rain and I’m already desperate for sun haha.  On another note I do love this white dress I just got from Bubbleroom.  It’s the perfect vacation dress.  I’m definitely bringing it with me to Croatia this summer.  Is there anything better than tanned skin and a white dress on an exotic vacation?  That’s true happiness for me haha.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

I had so much fun showing you guys ”A Day in LA” with me on Din Sko’s snapchat.  If you haven’t already, make sure you add them (dinsko_official) before the 24 hours is over!  You’ll see everything from a tour of my apartment, lots of palm trees, me bartending, and tons of outfit talk.  You don’t wanna miss it 🙂

I ran into a few friends at the Revolve party, including Jennifer Åkerman, who you might recognize from Montazami Brand’s website!  We mingled on the rooftop deck, listened to upbeat music and sipped on Patron margaritas.  After the party Austin and I went to go see Explosions In The Sky perform at the Avalon theatre.  It was a successful night!

ME AND MY LEVIS

I got my first pair of Levi shorts about three weeks ago from IMSO.com, and today I’m sitting here wondering what the hell I was doing all my life without them??  They are so much more flattering than the other shorts I used to wear.  I’m very picky about my shorts and to be honest I have been looking for good Levi shorts for years and years and never found it.  I finally found it at IMSO and I was so happy that I got it in every shade of denim they offer haha.  Now my Levis and I are living a very happy life together.  I took my Levis down to the beach with me last week and you can see in the photos we had such a great time. Look how happy we are!!

Well that’s about it for tonight’s love story… I’m sure there will be another Levi Love post soon 🙂
