Larchmont Saturday

It's not often that I get to go out and really enjoy the city of LA. I'm normally busy working on something for school, working at the DA, or just being too lazy to actually get out there. This weekend my friend and I made a spontaneous decision to just go walk around, shop etc. in Hancock Park. I've driven through Hancock a couple of times but never really stopped to see what it had to offer. Well today I learned that Larchmont Boulevard is THE spot. I would definitely recommend stopping by to anyone visiting the LA area. It's just such a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We stopped at the Lemonade there and this particular location was just so much cuter to me than the Lemonade that I normally go to in Westlake Village.
They have a variety of stores to shop at. My personal favorite was a store called Hardwear. It had a lot of really cute pieces at really affordable prices. It also had (what appeared to be) handmade jewellery at the front of the store and the pieces were so pretty. I definitely need to go back there. There were also awesome interior design stores with unique accessories for the home. I definitely think its a great place to go if you're looking to purchase something that not everyone else will have.
Lastly, my favorite part of our day was seeing all the beautiful homes in the area. I love pretty homes and picking out my "dream homes." I honestly have dream homes in every city I go to. It's just one of my favorite things to do and I find it to be pretty inspiring honestly. Seeing them makes me want to work that much harder so that obviously, one day, I can have them! My particular favorite was this house. Hopefully the owners don't mind me snapping photos LOL. Anyway, I just think it's the cutest place. It has kind of a suburban feel to it I think but it's still in the city. The front lawn was so big and well cared for. It just seemed "homey." I'm generally not into the super huge modern mansions that everyone loves (although I would not decline the offer if someone wanted to give me one). I just like really nice houses that seem like family homes. So yes, if you're ever in the neighborhood you should also take a stroll around to check out some of the homes. 

Today really made me want to do a little more exploring in the city and check out other neighborhoods that I've overlooked. Let me know if there are any really neat places in LA that you know of! Also, I'm including a link here to a tour of Larchmont Boulevard from TimeOut. Hope you enjoy.

  7. I love doing that -- riding around neighborhoods and looking at homes. I just did this Friday after work since I didn't have my children with me. I got lost and absolutely loved it. Strangely enough, not only do I find inspiration and motivation when I'm perusing these neighborhoods, but I also find peace.
