Great for: Donuts

I’ve had my eye on California Donuts for the longest time! I’m downtown LA all the time but just never made it out becuase I was too busy/healthy/tired. But this weekend, it happened. Boy oh boy have I never felt less guilty about eating 4 donuts. Like seriously, I was so happy. MAPLE BACON donuts? Check. THIN MINT girl scout cookie donuts? Check. CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH, FROOT LOOP, REESE’S PIECES, SNICKERS, COCONUT… (must I go on?)… check, check, CHECKKK!

Yep, you can’t choose just one. You’ll eat 4. SO AMAZING AND WORTH IT!!

My favorite was the bacon and the reese’s pieces, but every flavor was divine.

Ran into this girl wine tasting in central cali today and was totally taken by her cute classy getup. Her colorful kimono stands out against her all black outfit, pairing well with her big glasses for a very glam effect! Personally, I’m always about the dresses when wine tasting, but I love this take! Glam, comfortable, but still light & fun! Winning look in my book!

Sending out this inspo to all the darlings stuck in the cold this week! It’s still sunny in LA, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! With Thanksgiving around the corner, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before we stash our cut-off shorts and start nomming on the pumpkin pie. I’m lovin’ this look because it features two pieces that I knowww I’ll be wearing all winter long: body chains (YES) & kimonos (think paired over a long sleeve, under a leather jacket, or with denim tied in!).

Would you wear a body chain?? How do you incorporate body chains into your look?? Share below or tag us on insta @halfsiesblog for a chance to be featured!

They are so comfortable, easy to wear, and can easily be dressed up or down. Today, I rocked my new printed maxi with my cheetah clogs – going for a print on print look. Since, my outfit was so loud, I toned down my accessories by wearing a simple gold necklace.

Restaurant Review: Zengo

Restaurant Name: Zengo
Location: 395 Santa Monica Pl, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Halfsies Rating: ★★★★★
Halfsies Bank: $$$
Genre: Tapas
Great for: Brunch

What we loved: $39 brunch includes unlimited tapas & drinks for a two-hour period

What we’d improve: If you don’t make a rezzie, tough luck. We wish there were better accomodations for walk-ins, but this place is so great, we’re actually okay with making brunch plans ahead of time.

What we’d recommend: Ask your server to bring out an assortment of dishes, proportionate to the number of guests you have at your table. Once you’ve tried everything on the extensive brunch menu, you can request seconds (and thirds) of your favorite items!! I’m in love with the empanadas, brussel sprouts, sushi rolls, yucca fries, and meatballs!!

Be forewarned… on weekends Zengo is known for DJs spinning hot tunes! It can get loud, but is a perfect way to keep the party going on Sunday Funday!

This week’s inspo comes from the beautiful weather we’re having in SoCal! I wanted to put together a look that was brunch appropriate and simultaneously beach-ready! Patterned stretch skirts and flowy crop tops pair super well and are both versatile and comfy! Wear your hair in a casual top knot, and you’ve perfected the look! I’m sporting this style all summer long folks!

◊ Skirt – Nordstrom ◊
◊ Shirt – Forever 21 ◊
