Here, There & Everywhere: Botanica – Gingerly Witty

Here, There & Everywhere: Botanica

Gingerly Witty Here There Everywhere Botanica Restaurant

Wow, I can't believe I forgot about doing these! Anyway, this week's "Here, There & Everywhere" is inspired by an actual date I'll be going on on Thursday evening. I'm super excited the latest "it" restaurant, Botanica. From longtime food writers/chefs Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer, Botanica is a food blog come to life in a market + restaurant combo that is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. 

According to EaterLA, "the sunny new space...could help to lead the way on Los Angeles’s enduring health-conscious, produce-heavy charge." The menu is similarly light, with dishes directly inspired by the farmers market and carrying a vegetarian lean. That’s not to say everything is vegan or even meatless, but the place definitely falls on the produce side of the spectrum with shaved root vegetable salads, spring mezze plates, and light animal proteins like lamb kabobs.

The FreelandBuck Architects-built Botanica features warm colored exposed wood beams and a bright white interior, which is to be expected of the latest health food focused eatery in the hip enclave of Silver Lake. 

This is the outfit I plan on wearing:

Jasmine Dress - 308

Southwestern Poncho - 69


Emilia necklace - 26

Stella Earring - 70

Malachite Gumdrop Ring - 68

Abacus Stacking Ring - 48

Hammered Stacking Ring - 20

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...
