Chloe dress, Topshop Unique blazer, Zara heels, Jimmy Choo clutch, scarf from Portobello Market

The American in me was desperately seeking Mexican food and Coronas last night. The only problem is that I live in London and a delicious Mexican restaurant, satisfying enough to hit my craving does not exist in the UK (that I know of). For a Californian born, West Coast girl this can be slightly painful at times, especially since I have not graced the United States with my presence for over a year. The boy and I started our mission, searching the internet, reading reviews, asking informative friends to recommend a suitable location. In the end we settled upon Navojo Joes, where the atmosphere was fitting, the Coronas were flowing, and the food was good enough. I’m still avidly anticipating my next visit to So Cal when my urges will be properly indulged.

I got this Chloe dress from the fashion house’s Phoebe Philo days, which I dearly miss. It has stayed a spring/summer staple in my wardrobe for several years and gets better with age. I love the girly style, and almost indecent sheerness of the piece. A perfect start to Spring!

American Apparel mesh dress arrived today! Yay!
