this is a song about a welsh witch

Goodness, this goldeny light was fantastic.  It rained yesterday too**, so the sky was really clear all day today!  It's sad that it takes a good rainfall to clear away the smog, but because it happens so infrequently here (by my New England standards, that is) it's really beautiful when the skies do clear up.

Apparently I must want to be a rock star because the other day I was a little bit Steven Tyler and I feel like today I was a little bit Stevie Nicks (who I totally love).  I layered a flowy skirt over the ultra body-conscious double U-neck dress that everyone and their sister owns.  It's a  little too va-va-voom for my day to day tastes, so on went the very not body-conscious skirt.

This giant scarf served me well up at Lake Arrowhead over the weekend.  The only problem is it leaves white fuzz everywhere, especially on, say, a black outfit.  It definitely looked like I was shearing sheep when I finally wiped it all off.

You can see, in the last picture, Cahuenga Peak behind me (also seen at the end of this post more clearly).  Even though I haven't been here long, it's become one of my favorite parts of this city.  We hiked it once and it is really such a beautiful view.  From that vantage point, you can really see how amazingly unique Los Angeles is.  It's so sprawling and all these buildings are built into the hills.  Up there you really realize that it's unlike any other city in the country.

dress (worn as a top): American Apparel, skirt: H&M, scarf: Forever 21, oxfords: Steve Madden, rings: Nordstrom, bracelet: from India (gift)
