I asked my daughter over morning coffee if she would like to go to LA for the day and her reply was, "yes please." Good answer, because sometimes it's just a good idea to get out of the hood...our familiar surroundings. It's not all that easy to do in Southern California. It was actually less stressful to go into Manhattan when we lived about 40 miles outside the city in Connecticut. LA traffic...it's as bad as everyone says it is...period. Still, there's much to see and experience in Los Angeles. My daughter Madeline and I love to shop and eat, so that's what we did in LA on this beautiful October day.
|We had lunch at Chin Chin in Beverly Hills for less than $20 and brought some home. This part of BH seems, at least to us, off the beaten path and far less typical of what you might think of Beverly Hills. Madeline is embracing the preppy style and I have to say I am loving it! Jewelry: Helen Ficolora "M" charm necklace, acorn locket on long chain, Madewell, bracelets, H&M, TAG Heuer watch, her dad's.|

|What she's wearing. . . Prep head to toe starting with a Burberry sweater of mine from like 15 years ago, her little brother's Ralph Lauren shirt, Coach bag, a recent Thrift store find, cut off shorts from American Eagle Outfitters and Sperry Top-siders.|
|We ended our day by strolling through the Farmers Market and a little shopping at The Grove. There is so much going on here on a Saturday evening. We heard live music from Midnight Train and there was an outdoor movie going on as well. So how did you spend your Saturday?|
