I like the silhouette, but often times ‘wide leg’ would also mean ‘no butt’ and then there was the question of what top to pair it with to not look wide all over. All that changed when I saw these Phillip Lim printed beauties and I fell back on the love side of things. Luckily Chico’s also sent me this top from their new Black Label line and its’ business in front, party in back style was perfect for showing off a wide leg pant that didn’t make my rear completely disappear!

What about you guys, how are you on the love/hate scale toward wide leg trousers?

from the weekend: los angeles in two days

griffith observatory, los angeles // @sarahshermansamuelI got to play tourist in my own city this weekend with one of my best gal pals who was visiting from San Francisco. We caught up while buzzing around town to a lot of my favorite spots. Here’s the short list for our whirlwind weekend in LA.

We had an unforgettable dinner at Alma, a peek at the new Ace Hotel downtown, a manicure at the most beautiful nail salon in Beverly Hills, brunch at Gjelina & Salt Air, shopping on Abbot Kinney as well as in Silver Lake, another tasty meal at Sqirl, hiking and taking in the view at Griffith Observatory, tacos and drinks at Alibi room, and a long, and by then, delirious meal at Cafe Gratitude.
