It’s now my 5th year as an official {LA} downtowner! I can recall my excitement moving to this city as a fashion student… I was filled with ambitions, hopes, & dreams! I had large expectations as I was moving from a small town up north to Downtown LA! Little did I know that DTLA had little to no city life at all, and after the 5 pm hustle & bustle it was complete ghost town back then. Don’t ask why or how, but I somehow found beauty in this undeveloped city….It must’ve been my amazing loft (the rent was staggeringly low back then). For the past 5 years i’ve had the honor of seeing downtown LA develop into something astonishing. Today Jana and I grabbed coffee at Grand Park  ( my fave part of DTLA), and found ourselves splish splashing in the water {with the rest of the kids}! Usually i’ll walk right around the large fountain, but for some odd reason the fountain was calling my name ( could be the warm weather).

Theres something so refreshing walking on water in the middle of a hot day, I highly recommend it the next time you see a fountain ( just make sure you don’t get in trouble with the security guards :P ) and FYI, no shoes were harmed during this process!

    These pictures are absolutely breathtaking! The lighting, angle of the camera, and poses all accentuate the beauty of your outfits. I really like how the sun plays off the water and makes your shirt and shoes sparkle with an astonishing brilliance. Great job!

    Speaking of water-safe shoes, I’m moving to England, the land of rain, soon, and am trying my hardest not to have to switch to practical shoes while I’m there. Is it just the material of your shoe that made it a-ok in a fountain, or the construction, or what?

  • Oleah says:

    such a cute outfit. this makes me want to go play in a fountain now haha.

    Hi,

    Do you have a link to the shoes as the Asos one doesn’t work :( I’ve had a look on the site but the Steve Madden sandals are the closest I can find. They’re so stunning!

    Thank you
