Wild Hearts

I took a little break from blogging recently, but I'm back, feeling refreshed, and bursting with color! Last weekend, I was finally able to get out and enjoy some things around the city. This included a trip to the Arts District in Los Angeles, which is a vibrant section of the city with lots of small shops, restaurants and, of course, colorful murals! Originally, I wanted to see some of the new crochet murals by artist London Kaye in this area. Unfortunately, the mural I wanted to take photographs by was largely torn down and there was a impromptu band that had set up to play music by it! Luckily, I spied this heart mural from afar and it was the perfect match for this colorful Farm Rio leopard print cardigan that I am featuring in today's post! I actually like this backdrop a lot more than the original one I had planned, so it all worked out in the end.  

I am trying to discover new brands lately and one that I really love is Farm Rio, which is where this cardigan is from. I love the wild, colorful print of this sweater and the cozy oversized fit! All of Farm Rio's clothing is quite colorful and fun, so I hope to buy some more pieces from them in the future. If I do get any more pieces from them, it will also provide me with another excuse to venture into the Arts District to stumble upon another fun and funky wall there! After all, there's always something new to discover in Los Angeles!

  1. I'm loving the Lisa Frank vibe I get from your darling cardigan! I used to be obsessed with the bright colors and fun heart and star shapes that brand would use as a kid! This is the grown up adult version and I am here for it!

  2. Glad to see you back and bursting with color. You find the most amazing backdrops. Love the sweater! Thanks for linking

  3. I love the Farm Rio pieces too! I dont have any, but I looked for them last year and will see what is out there too. Such a pretty and fun cardigan- love the pink shoes and white pants with it. Perfect backdrop for Vday!

  4. That's a fabulous cardigan! I love your cute beret too. Thanks for linking up!

  5. This mural was probably even better than the one you wanted to take pictures next to! Such a fun cardigan!

  6. As always the best backdrops and the best colorful prints. This new rainbow heart cardigan is so you and as a fan of leopard and berets I am loving and wanting both your cardigan and your hat, Katie.

    I barely blogged last year and took a long break too, but I am back, Katie. =)
