THE M LIST

Well it's the "Fall season" in Los Angeles, despite the 100+ degree days, and even though I can't quite indulge in sweater weather just yet, I am super excited for one last bit of summer with my favorite event, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic! It's everything you'd expect a polo to be with all the well groomed horses, a sprawling green field, preppy day wear, picnics on the lawn, umbrellas and wide brimmed hats, dashing polo players and more importantly, some wonderful champs! Hope to see you there!
{ Santa Monica Bike Share }


I just found out about this awesome bike sharing program in Santa Monica, similar to Divvy in Chicago, where you can rent bikes by the hour or day. I am surprised it took so long for a bike sharing company to come to Los Angeles, hopefully it becomes available throughout the more areas of the city. I'm so excited to try it out and ride on over to the beach, just waiting for a forecast of 80 degrees or less!

No, it's not an addition to the small world ride at Disneyland! Call it magic, this is a REAL place! Thank you Town and Country Magazine, for reporting on this picturesque place in Northern Holland, where the only way around is by boat! It's truly one of those fairy tale places, far far away, that I would like to purchase a plane ticket (and boat ride) to!

I LOVE Fall! But with the current heat wave in Los Angeles, I'm in need of an iced twist on all the season favorites. An iced pumpkin spiced latte might not hit the spot, but I am sure this apple cider mule recipe will! How genius? I love a classic Moscow Mule and hot apple cider, what a perfect combination. Can't wait to make these for friends and serve them off my bar cart!

I'm always on the lookout for new places to hang out in Los Angeles and this one is a must try! Despite the amazing coffee and high tech espresso machines, the space is stunning! I absolutely adore the copper bar, green sofas, and perfect herringbone patterned floor. Did I mention the lovely outdoor patio too? Located right on Melrose Ave, just west of Robertson Blvd, it's the perfect spot to bring your laptop, work, relax and people watch. It's java chic.

American philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad's extensive private collection of significant contemporary art is now open to the public in a brand new, free museum in downtown Los Angeles. As a lover of art and design, I am very excited to see all works up close! General admission is free, but tickets have been hard to get ahold of since the place opened on September 20th, 2015, so do reserve online, ASAP!

7. Tassel Pump Trend 

Ever since seeing Marissa Webb's chic tassel pumps swinging down the runway at New York fashion week and realizing I totally missed the boat on the J. Crew Roxie Ankle Tie pumps last Spring, I have been on a serious mission to find something comparable, and preferably at a reasonable price point. And guess what, I did!!! After some serious SOLE searching I found the perfect tassel tie heels in the most fabulous Fall shade! Grab a pair, as I am sure they will sell out!

8. Hillflint Collegiate Sweaters

It's football season and I can't help but swoon over this vintage college sweater and support my Alma Matter, the University of Illinois, find your school here. This actually makes me want to go to Homecoming and tailgate, a true football miracle! 



Hope you loved the M list!

Xx, Monica
