Here, There, & Everywhere: 4 LA Things I'm Dying to Do – Gingerly Witty

Here, There, & Everywhere: 4 LA Things I'm Dying to Do

Gingerly Witty LA things travel

For this week's "Here, There, & Everywhere" I decided to try something new. This week, instead of focusing on one specific local haunt, I thought I'd expand my horizons to feature a multitude of destinations to explore throughout Southern California.

1. Hollywood Bowl picnic with a date or small group of friends

While I have been to the Hollywood Bowl, it was during a horrible date which I'd rather forget. ANYWHO, I've never been able to fully appreciate the Hollywood Bowl. I just think there's something special about seeing live music with someone you love romantically. By forming a connection through the sharing of the visceral experience, your bond suddenly feels tighter; more secure even. 

2. Dapper Day at Disneyland (okay, so it's in Anaheim)

LA Times

What is Dapper Day you may ask? Well, according to the LA Times it's "The unofficial gathering is an assemblage of Disney fans who want nothing more than a chance to parade around the theme park in their Sunday best. There’s no age limit or required 'look' to participate -- visitors simply show up dressed to impress." From 40s pinups to classic 60s two-piece suits, the outfits can delight even the most casual of persons. I haven't been to Disneyland in 15 years and I'm just so eager to go! So why not go on a day where everyone is dressed up for once? Also, I may have already bought my dress...

Is this perfect for a Disney spring day or what?!

3. Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery 

Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery has been on my to-do list since I arrived in LA seven years ago and I'm shocked I still haven't been! Also, this location is weirdly morbidly romantic. Plus, there's nothing better than snuggle puddling over a movie and some wine!

4. Hiking Griffith Park

I mostly put this one on here because I need to get in shape and get out in nature more. Plus, I now know people with a dog so that's an excuse, right?

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...

Personal Style: Nothing Abstract About It


Abstract art is one of the hottest runway fashion inspirations. From Kadinski to Pollock, abstract prints have been "in" for quite some time. Our favorite abstract print? The one on our Anja Dress by Amanda Moss.
