The Reel Inn and Saturday


Me and the boy had a unexpected free day on friday so we decided to make the most of it and drove out to Malibu to have lunch at this cute place called The Reel Inn. The food was delicious! The menu is all fresh fish and you get to pick how its cooked. The calamari was insane. If you're ever in Los Angeles get your bum down there.

The nice thing about having a free day (besides eating calamari with the boy) is that it means I can give my hair a rest. Lots of you ask about my hair and when I'm not working or going to meetings I put lots of conditioner in it and then put it in a bun. You can kinda see from the above picture that my natural hair is quite curly, alas it does not grow the way it looks in my previous posts!

Jacket: TopShop, studs by me.  Shirt: LF. Bag: Alexander Wang. 
Peep Toe Wedges: Jeffery Campbell. Sunglasses: Rayban.

On Saturday we hung out with a friend of ours and his son. I love hanging out with kids. They always make me smile. We took Levi to the park and then to a Korean BBQ, which I know doesn't sound like the most child friendly place but he loves it there! It was my first time and I loved it too.

I didn't plan on doing an outfit post so these pictures aren't the best. This LF shirt is one of my favorite things to wear at the moment. It's really oversized and it has the shoulders cut out so it's still very feminine. I love shoulders! I don't wear these wedges as often as I should, they're actually very comfortable.

We booked our flights back to London this week.... I cannot wait to see my cat.

Uh, I quite like your hair like it is in the pictures. :-) But you're always beautiful anyway. I guess there's nothing that could change that.
And may I ask you something? What camera do you guys use for your photos? :-3

Thanks for the comments!

We'll be heading back to London early next month. Don't know how long for yet. We just take it as it comes :)

The boy shoots on either a Canon 5D or Leica D-LUX-4 (and sometimes even an iPhone).... x

kitty said...

Well it's good to know that you are not leaving for good ;).
What are some things that you will miss about America? When I lived in England, I missed Margaritas haha. They tasted a lot different out there. I missed cell phone coverage when I came back to the states. Europe has MUCH better cell phone coverage.

That food looks incredible! I'll have to try it. I have that same shirt from LF and I completely understand what you mean about the holes adding a feminine touch. P.s. DIY jeffrey Campbell Ticks on my blog because I also found the original uncomfortable.

Angela said...

love the shirt and your jacket! really nice pics too

Ashley said...

Thank you my lovelies!

I hardly ever wear my natural hair down because I look like a crazy person (due to the cut- someone did NOT know how to cut curly hair!) when I do my much talked about hair post I'll sneak a picture in then.
