[Ace Hotel - DTLA]
If you're looking for a place to go this weekend, I recommend going to the Ace Hotel in Downtown LA. The best summertime haven-- crisp salads, great selections of wine and beer, and of course a rooftop pool. Any opportunity is a good one for an Instagram snap. A great way to spend your summer nights as well as the rooftop becomes a club on the weekends.
Yes, this is how I like to enjoy my cocktails. In total relaxation. And oh, how I'm in love with my new orange lipstick by MAC. It's called Sushi Kiss and it is everything I love about the summertime-- fun, fresh, and full of possibilities. Haha. I kid about the last part but I do love a good orange lip-- it gives the best pop of color when you're not in the mood for a full on makeup look but it also still gives you an illusion of a tan. Leave it to bright colored lippies to make me a happy gal!
I found this Korean War medal at the Long Beach Antique Market and thought it'd be a great way to add some flare to an old button up or leather jacket. I always love finding unique ways to change up something ordinary. I particularly loved that there was some history to this piece, especially one that affects me, being a Korean American.
Can you feel the heat in this photo? It was super hot this day. How gracious of the weather to cooperate with my summer theme.
