FAVE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARIES PT.2

so many great comments on the first post on my favorite netflix docs (see here), i figured i would post some more! i love reading the comments and seeing that we have a lot of the same faves. here are 12 more that i really enjoyed! i am about to spend the weekend hanging out with my little sister who just moved to town so i will have some time to watch some of the ones you guys recommended that i haven’t seen yet. i tend to like strange documentaries sometimes (“i think we’re alone now & the wild & wonderful whites”), so click through to watch the trailers to see if they are your style ūüôā

STYLE / 102

i love meeting new photographers and spending the day observing their point of view. i had the pleasure of meeting a while back and we had fun shooting a style post at the top of the hill in echo park.

i love the quirky details (those awesome painted stairs below) and the abundance of greenery found in this neighborhood.

i went with an easy 70’s vibe today. high waisted jeans (similar pair available¬†), a vintage mexican top and an oversized yellow hat. this outfit makes me want to get in the car and drive to palm springs right now. this past weekend i went to with my friend ¬†(a mexican marketplace and the oldest part of downtown LA) . i have been wanting to go for years, but somehow just never got around to it. we had such a great time drinking margaritas & eating huevos rancheros at ¬†and searching for treasures. i wasn’t in a trying on clothes mood, so i didn’t get any of the beautiful mexican dresses that i saw but i picked up a bunch of little presents for my friends.

LOLLAPALOOZA & GAP

i can’t believe i’ve never been to a big music festival…not coachella, south by southwest or lollapalooza. so i’m really excited to be headed to chicago with¬†¬†next week to attend lollapalooza and document my favorite festival looks. i’ll be hosting an event at the store on michigan ave the night before¬†(invite below)¬†and really hope to see you there if you are in the chicago area! you can also follow along to see our adventures.

i pulled a bunch of my favorite looks that i could see myself wearing to the festival. they have some really wonderful scarves right now that you should definitely check out. they’re perfect for cool evenings & to use as mini blankets on the grass. i tried to give a bunch of options that would be easy to layer from day to night…
