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!
