Westside Story




With summer vibes in the air, our wanderlust was at a high and so we took a mini road trip to the west side. Having lived near the coast, we both always had easy access to the beach while growing up and we get pangs of feeling landlocked while in Pasadena. With LA's notorious traffic, our trip to Venice was quite the trek. When we finally made it to our destination, we were greeted by Venice's eccentricity. From colorful graffiti to loud personalities, we became consumed in the novelty of this pocket of LA. After living the boardwalk life with greasy pizza and chili cheese fries, we made our way towards the beach. In contrast to the boisterous boardwalk, we were surprised with the shoreline's tranquility. It was the perfect quick getaway to satiate our wanderlust for a little while.

  25. This post has inspired me to try to venture out to the Westside more often this summer. I also live in Pasadena and definitely fall into the routine of not exploring other areas of LA because I don't want to deal with traffic. I loved your pictures of Venice and it's definitely a city I want to get to know better.

  30. Love your grey top! :)

    Sometimes it's nice just to get away and spend time at the beach - I always find it very relaxing when we do finally go. I only live about 10 minute drive away, it's shocking how rarely I go sometimes!

  38. Oh look at that view! I believe in the end you both think it's worth a trip from Pasadena to Venice I take it? We have only the lake here which makes me miss the ocean as I great up in a tropical place. Thanks for the share this makes me think of planning a trip out of Chicago soon (maybe to sunny LA? Lol~) xo~ Lena
