Lucky Ladybugs

I think it's safe to say that ladybugs might be the "it" insect of the spring season! As proof, I will attest to the numerous compliments that I received on this ladybug sweater from J. Crew Factory. It seemed to be a big hit, even with a little girl of about six or so who stopped me in the parking lot of the grocery store to compliment me on the sweater! Clearly, ladybugs are popular and why shouldn't they be? They are probably the cutest insect out there and they are good for your garden by keeping unwanted pests away from your plants!

One of the things that I love most about this sweater is that it has a loose, comfy fit in addition to the contrasting striped bands on the bottoms and sleeves, which gives it a sporty, casual feel. In fact, it looks a little something like Gucci might have come out with for spring, which is why I thought my red Gucci bag was the perfect choice to wear with the sweater. I also played up the sporty aspect of the sweater by wearing my boyfriend jeans and gold loafers.

Last, but not least, in addition to being head over heels in love with my new ladybug sweater, I am also pretty excited about this new alley I discovered in Old Town Pasadena. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed this alley on my Instagram story last weekend. I love Old Town Pasadena because there is an endless series of alleyways that have so much character around every corner. There's also also a ton of historic buildings to discover, such as this one with dramatic stained glass windows. Blogging in Old Town Pasadena is easy because every location is fabulous!
