Road trip honeymoon: Palm Springs and LA

LA

Los Angeles (and just before that, Palm Springs) was the last stop on our road trip honeymoon, and it certainly felt like we went out with a bang. After a couple weeks of mostly cooking (or skipping) our meals, we were back to our old city-exploring ways of restaurant hopping and boutique wandering. No better place to do it than the City of Angels where we ate some of the best things we've truly ever had and sifted through new and vintage treasures all over the city. It was my first time to LA, and I (rather unexpectedly) fell in love with it for its uniqueness all around. Being much more accustomed to New York as a city, LA felt especially approachable, friendly, and just different. It had a sunshine-y, vibrant, gritty, confident sort of air about it to me. It's hard to explain, but it felt so different from what I'm used to. I thought I'd share some photo highlights of our time there and some of the can't-miss spots we experienced (the photos are linked!).
