L.A. Leopard

I love getting out and doing fun things, seeing interesting places, and eating great food. Also, if there happens to by a fun mural nearby, that's just the icing on the cake! Over my winter break, we went to the Century City Mall near Beverly Hills to visit the Italian food emporium known as Eataly. It is truly a feast for the senses with an array of cheeses, fresh pastas, pizzas, pastries, and an amazing assortment of gourmet meat and seafood that would make anyone's mouth water. Since Eataly is located within a mall, there are also some amazing shops to browse after or before you eat. Last, but not least, there's this fun colorful L.A. mural that was right up my alley!

I decided to go casual to wander around this lovely mall with my new velvet leopard print top from Madewell. I first saw this top on Oh Joy's blog and it was so cute I knew I had to track it down and make it mine. I guess I wasn't the only one enthralled with the top because I received a ton of compliments on it while at the mall. Everyone from shoppers passing by as we took these photos to the woman who rang up my two cannolis at Eataly seemed to be enamored with my spotted look!

I would highly recommend going to the Century City Mall and Eataly if you are in the L.A. area. You can grab a bite to eat and, of course, stop to take a picture by this fun mural! (They also have a heart mural, which would be perfect for Valentine's Day!) One of my New Year's resolutions is to get out and see and do more in L.A. so, hopefully, this is the start of more adventures to come in 2019!
