It was one of those perfect weekends where you don’t make any plans and the next second you’re out exploring your town and trying out new things. Saturday I went to my very first Cinespia held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary. I have to admit, I was not sure how I felt about watching a movie in a cemetery surrounded by tombstones. It is an odd mixture of fascination, excitement and creepiness. We settled in on an open grassy slot (free of tombstones) and pulled out a full-blown picnic (complete with 8 bottles of wine for 8 people.) Cinespia has been around for 15 years and I am glad that I experienced something so LA. I need to do these kinds of things more often! Any recommendations for events like this?
Afterwards, we headed to the Dresden, a historic Hollywood bar that doesn’t look like it’s changed a bit since it opened in 1954. The band that night was great. They played all the classics including Frank Sinatra.
The next morning, Liz and I went to breakfast at our usual place, Le Pain Quotidien and ended up chatting there for almost 3 hours. I guess you could say we had a lot to catch up on. We did manage to get a bit of blog work done before heading to visit friends at Le Petit Ermitage.
What started out as lunch turned into lounging by the pool for a few hours. We ended the day with dinner on the rooftop pool deck as we watched the sun set. It was like a mini stay-cation with no concrete plans and I loved it. I am definitely looking forward to a few more of those this summer!
For the look I am wearing in today’s post, there is a bit of a French Mediterranean vibe going on with the boater hat and ribbon choker. I loved the combination with the navy crop top and my favorite floral skirt (seen numerous times before here and here.)
