Garden Alleys

It's been a month since I've called LA home and I feel like everything is already going by so fast. It's definitely different than the big landscapes and mountain scenes I was used to in Redding, but I'm finding that wherever I can explore, I can bring that same enchantment to busy streets or local spots. I'm so enjoying my new home and the people here, including this little spot below. 

"There's a garden wherever I go, springing from within, creating a place to be captured and for others to breathe in."

Modern Milly Dress

'Falling' into November soon but the weather is still accommodating wonderful pieces like this Modern Milly dress from Sanctuary Clothing. I love their modern twist to vintage inspired clothing. (I've shared some pieces from them earlier this year in the spring here.) What caught me was the print + colors and the pleated sleeves. They're so effortless, yet set in place without exaggeration. Not to mention the comfort level is a 10. 

Debra Polanco (Sanctuary's creative director) is known for being on the go, getting inspiration for the designs through her adventures. When it comes down to styling, it's about how you feel, which is what I love about the heart behind Sanctuary the 'not staying in a box' mentality towards creating. Take a look below:
