Styling with the Stars - {Griffith Observatory}

This past weekend, Mimi & I escaped a bit of the high heat wave in SoCal by making a trip Griffith Observatory, which sits on a slope of Mount Hollywood overlooking the LA skyline and infamous Hollywood sign. If you're (ever) in the LA area, this is a must-see, free and gorgeous attraction! 

We couldn't get enough of the clear, scenic views from the hilltop. 
It's awesome to be able to access so much knowledge and a unique perspective,
 thanks to this grand spectacle. 

In fact, this was the primary purpose of building this particular observatory. According to brochures, founder Griffith J. Griffith (yea, an interesting name!), "believed that astronomy and observation could alter perspective, and by doing so, could improve people's lives."

I opted for a black and off-white look for our excursion...with extremely light and easy fabrics on this hot, humid SoCal summer day! This shot captures my mood to the T! Carefree, sky-gazing and limitless. :)

Coming here helped us realize it's so important to get out of your daily routine. 
Climb a hill somewhere higher than you're used to. 
We were even inspired to plan an epic Euro trip in the coming year. 
It's up to us to see the world in a different light.

Winding down to the end of the day, the warm sun's rays peak over the LA skyline as it set, casting a romantic air over the Observatory.

We enjoyed both, the playful learning experience and the romantic scenery that the Observatory has to offer.
