union station

Right across from Olvera Street is an equally historic part of Downtown LA - Union Station. The architecture is one of its most noteworthy characteristics, but the view inside and the gorgeous details in the travertine tiles, the decorative ceiling, and the balanced sight lines will keep any art/architecture enthusiast drooling.

These particular travertine tiles are like candy for my aesthetic and drive me crazy, they're so pretty!

Union Station seemed the obvious backdrop for a look that is downright retro and feminine. In the archives of Hollywood, Union Station finds itself in the original "Italian Job" and my favorite cult classic, "Blade Runner."

Versatility is this blazer's middle name and is undeniably a universal wardrobe staple that I wear across the seasons. The camel color and puffy sleeves are to die for.

In this look, the blazer blends effortlessly with the white dress and an extra-wide caramel colored belt, a palette that is increasingly a go-to color combination for the summer. A saffron yellow petticoat peeks from underneath and gives the effect of a voluminous skirt. Subtle, but visually interesting.

The belt's details are satisfyingly edgy and understated.
