wear this there: the hoxton hotel dtla / sfgirlbybay

we’re staying close to home today (well, at least my home) and headed to the city of angels – Los Angeles that is, but it may feel a little bit Parisian. i’ve actually stayed at the hoxton paris and this weekend we’re headed to its sister hotel the hoxton dtla where i’ve also stayed. the Downtown hotel is as much for locals as it is for out-of-towners, so when i’ve had an event in the city it’s a grand spot to rest my head in one of their very chic art deco beds. it’s a favorite boutique hotel of mine with serene bedrooms with the loveliest lighting, two delicious restaurants right on-site, and a rooftop pool for catching all those sunny L.A. rays — all in one very grand historic building, with sparkling city views for miles around. we’re going to pack a sassy little outfit for cocktail hour — a sweet faux leather jumper worn over a slim-fitting turtleneck, some fun chelsea boots and a pale pink biker jacket thrown over our shoulders in case of an evening chill. and don’t forget to pack a swimsuit for a midnight swim and some cozy jammies, too. if you’ve not been to L.A. in a while i recommend checking out the Cereal City Guide: Los Angeles by rosa park – it’ll give you all the inside scoop with what to see and where to go in dtla.

L.A. Frogtown home gets Anthropologie decor update / sfgirlbybay

back in 2018, i posted about a very covetable home for sale in frogtown, along the L.A. river. it’s long been a favorite of mine with its exposed rustic beamed ceilings and many french doors to the outside gardens that surround the house. it felt like somewhere in Provence, france to me, rather than just miles from downtown L.A. originally redesigned by breland-harper and sold by my own realtor rob kallick from take sunset, this week a thoughtful reader sent me this brand new update to the home, which anthropologie has used as a very beautiful photoshoot location. i loved the original decor, but it’s always fun to get a sneak peek at it decorated differently, but still with the same unique, open, and very bohemian vibe. they’ve filled the home with Anthropologie’s latest collections and the aesthetic is warm and inviting, and if i’m not mistaken it looks like the new owners have also installed a fireplace, which looks fantastic and blends right into the breland-harper renovation. i most especially love the look of anthro’s bar cabinet and that pretty pink sofa from their arnaud collection — the armless chairs from that collection are pretty great, too. so have a look-see and see the difference!
