And we are back! We missed LA and we are thinking (hoping) LA missed us. This round, we spent our time in South Bay. If you are looking for a nautical, beach-town feel, this is the place to be! Here are our fav parts of the area and some restaurant recommendations from us foodies (and of course our outfits of the week)
h o t e l a m b i a n c e
Portofino Hotel & Marina
Portofino Hotel is located right on the marina in South Bay and steps away from the King Harbor. The nautical aesthetic compliments the waterside location and gives a fresh, breezy feel during your stay.

B R E A K F A S T
Two Guns is the perfect stop for those who are DTB (down to brunch)
L U N C H
Baleen Kitchen is the restaurant connected to Portofino Hotel. We hit up this place for a quick lunch (and a couple drinks of course)
D I N N E R
Staying in South Bay, sushi is always a must! Sushi Chitose is a small joint with big flavors, which hit the spot after a long day of work
KNITS & SWEATERS
Tis’ the season for cozy knits. Change up the typical sweater top with a sweater DRESS to get the perfect combo of comfy & cute
THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING
A good pair of booties are ESSENTIAL for the cold months. We’ve said it before and we will say it again, our Mariko Sock Bootie is thee PERFECT boot to get you through the season
HATS ON HATS ON HATS
Now we all know doing your hair every morning is the WORST. This year, we are overcoming the greasy mess with a stylish hat. Not only does it save time on styling the ‘Do, but also adds some flavor to your outfit
Fall is approaching oh so quickly and we can’t say we are too mad about it…… Why? Because fall wardrobe is our FAV! Oversized sweaters, flare pants, fun hats, we are already OBSESSED with this seasons trends. Shop all of these looks in-store today!
Overall, the South Bay is the perfect escape from the busy city. It does not take long to fall in love with this place even if your stay is just for the weekend. Until next time LA, it is always hard to leave ya!
