Here, There, and Everywhere: Sawyer – Gingerly Witty

Here, There, and Everywhere: Sawyer

Here There Everywhere Gingerly Witty travel Sawyer

For today's "Here, There, and Everywhere" I'm keeping things local. So local, that it's just a hop, skip, and straight jump away on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. With a seafood-focused menu and an eclectically decorated interior straight out of Wes Anderson film set, comes Sawyer, a local eatery by 

Beau Laughlin and partners Brett Cranston and Jay Milliken. The restaurant comes with unfinished charm - from the exposed brick wall, raw wood flooring throughout and an L-shaped bar covered in azure blue tile. Plus, there's a garden patio out back, adorned with rows of café lights of course - perfect for those upcoming warm LA nights. 


Chef Alex McWilliams leads the culinary team, focusing on large format dishes and share plates alike, including a variety of raw seafood options and rethought staples like clam chowder and a house burger. You'll also find a weekend brunch, which my friend raves about, so there's that!

What I'd Wear:

While its plates scream upscale, I feel that Sawyer has the ambiance of a casual local haunt. And therefore, this feeling has greatly influenced what I'd opt to wear there. When I think casual and easy, I instantly think of our Folking About Dress. With its soft-to-the-touch linen material and utilitarian structure (hello pockets!), the dress is perfect for an intimate, low-key date. Pair it with the simple Emilia Necklace locket, a pair of black leather oxfords and the Tadesse bucket bag to pull together the simple, collected look. Plus, don't forget your jacket (this lovely Esby duster) in case it's chilly inside!

Travel: Stories Books & Café + Around Echo Park

Gingerly Witty Travel Los Angeles Echo Park LA style fashion

Last Sunday, I had the honor of shooting with Annie Moses (@anniewmphoto) and Kimmy Shields at Stories Books & Café.

Stories is a favorite LA haunt of mine and it just so happens that it's right next door to our shop! Apart from being a local and independently run bookstore, the space doubles as a café, which includes a backyard patio. The menu is distinctly Californian fare, from their classic take on avocado toast with eggs, hummus platter, and...

Personal Style: Embroidery, a Jumpsuit, AND a Bandana

Gingerly Witty Personal Style: Embroidery, a Jumpsuit, AND a Bandana

The other day, Annie and I went out to grab some photos out and about in Echo Park. I wanted something casual, yet unique so I grabbed these LACAUSA overalls/jumpsuit, an embroidered tank and a white bandana to top off the look.

I love going out and simply taking photos with Annie. Not only is she super talented, but she's easy to work with and feel comfortable around even when you're not an expert model, which is...
