Feels like forever that I’ve posted a fashion related post because I’ve been out and about so much. But today, we are going to do a little post of a recent blogger date I’ve had in DTLA. The weather in LA has been record high, we are talking 90s and some 100s in the mid smack of the day. Anyone that is telling me global warming isn’t real can stfu because climate change as we know it is giving us a big middle finger. I can only ask people to be mindful about protecting our planet, not just for ourselves, but for our next generation and the next generation to come. Okay, my semi-political rant is over, on to today’s post.
I met up with Sirin from Creative Echo for lunch when she is in LA for a quick trip. We met up at a super cute restaurant in DTLA called Pretty Young Turnip (PYT) cute name right? The decor and ambiance of the place is hip, modern and very urban chic. We were famished so we took the recommendations from the server and gotten all the popular items on the menu. Most of the dishes were quite delicious but there were are few stand out which is the Piri-Piri rice and the Avo toast. I would be perfectly happy just eating these two dishes alone.
Roasted snap peas compliments of chef
Potato chapati bread with choice of: tumeric yuzu butter, Argental-berbere cheese dip or tomatillo salsa
Avocado toast with arugula, pepitas and sheep’s milk brie
Green piri-piri rice with over-easy egg, crispy rice, lime zest and soft herbs
After lunch, Sirin and I walked a little bit around the restaurant area. I am obsessed with her Insta feed and she has great taste for a minimal chic style, she took a few great pics of my ootd. It was 90 something degrees that day and I was wearing a cami with a light weight duster coat. I recently lucked out and scored one of the jeans with pearl studs that I have been pinned on the radar from Something Navy’s collection. I really like the cut and style of the jeans and the pearl cuff on the hem really makes the jeans extra chic and bedazzled. Some of the collections have been restocked so for the girls that didn’t get to buy the pieces, now is the time!
