Weekend happenings//


+ My latest purchase that’s sure to get an obscene amount of wear this summer.

+ Caught a showing of ‘The Great Gatsby’ on Friday. For me, it was just about exactly as I thought it might be: an eyeful and earful to take in, but an over all ‘ehh, okay.’ The soundtrack is fantastic, which I’ve had on repeat for a week, but it  kind of distracted me during the film.

+ For Mother’s Day, my family and I headed to the Getty Museum to explore for the afternoon. It’s been extra warm here lately, so the weather was perfect.

+ Have a terrific week!

The Getty always has something new and exciting on view, and Herb Ritts’ LA Style is no exception. This was, unfortunately, a “No Photography Allowed” area, so I’ve pulled a few images.

Stunning portraits of Greg Louganis, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Found my sports tie-in!

Woman in the Sea was my favorite photo in the exhibit:

Adjacent to the Ritts’ exhibit is Portraits of the Renown: Photography and the Cult of CelebrityThis image of Gypsy Rose Lee and her girls stood out.

If you’re in the area, go check them out. They both run until August 26.

Weekend happenings//

+ Stocking up.                                                        + Family cookie painting.

+ Celebrating Independence with s’mores.     + Getty architecture.

+ Purging old magazines.                                    + A morning message.

Other notes//

+ I made an afternoon trip to the Getty Museum to see a few of the latest exhibits and for general inspiration. Some of those images will be shared later in the week.

+ At one point, I owned nearly every single issue of Teen Vogue. I’m still in the process of recycling them (going through 2005-2006 issues currently), and it’s such a kick to see how much has changed in less than a decade.

+ Visited the Rose Bowl Flea, again, yesterday. Darn hot out there!

+ Anyone watch Wimbledon? Stoked with the singles’ outcome.
