Friday Five: 5 Best Vegetarian Friendly Restaurants in Los Angeles

Jenna Colgrove of Visions of Vogue at Gracias Madre - a plant based vegan restaurant in Los Angeles.

So I probably should have written about the 5 best vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles while I lived there. But lately, I’ve found myself missing the food more than ever. I’ve also been missing the weather but that’s a whole different story. If you don’t already know, I’m vegan-ish. Chicago eats just aren’t the same. There are a lot less juice bars and a lot more pizza places. That’s no surprise. Before I get to the list, here is what happened this week on the blog:

Let’s get back to LA. Oh, LA. After living there for over a decade, this list of restaurants comes out on top every time. When we are traveling to a new place, I’m always scanning for plant based restaurants. Sometimes, it can be a struggle. So for my fellow vegetarians and/or people just looking for a healthy meal at a super trendy spot, I wanted to round up this list! We try a good balance of places since Matt is definitely a meat eater (he’s a Midwest boy through and through). We’ll go to a spot he wants to visit but he’ll always throw in a vegetarian-friendly or vegan place too. Here is the list!

Mustard Yellow Dress | Audrina Ankle Strap Espadrille Sandals | Structured Trapeze Back | Tortoise Sunglasses | State Necklace | Red Fringe Earrings (so many cute colors!) | Marble Cocktail Ring (only $25!) | Lipstick in ‘Ruby Woo’

I’m super excited to share something different with you guys today! It’s the launch of an app called Dosh. These days, it seems like you can do everything from your phone. Navigate, pay for your groceries at the market, turn the thermostat down in your home… it’s crazy! But let’s bring it back to what matters to most of us girls: shopping: Whether you’re looking for a cute dress for wedding season or to book your next vacation, you want to make sure you get the best deal. Who doesn’t? Dosh is a new app on your smartphone that lets you do that.

Colorful Walls and Comfy Tunics

Pink Dog Creative in the Asheville Arts District

Pink Tunic Top (40% off, also loving the white!) | White Jeans | Taupe Bow Wedges | Leather Tote | Tortoise Sunglasses | Lipstick in ‘Swag’ | Tassel Earrings | Gold Rings here and here

For all the times I wear dresses, sometimes I just want to wear pants. While I think both options are comfortable (if you find the right dress), there’s something to be said for being able to sit cross legged. What is really love to wear is my Lululemon leggings every day but I doubt my company would consider that appropriate office attire!

Tampa Style Guide

Beach coverup and a wide brim hat in Tampa, Florida.

Initially, I had wanted to do a Tampa travel guide. However, cute restaurants and Instagrammable walls didn’t take priority over batting practice and baseball stadiums this past weekend. Oh well. For all the quests to find a botanical garden I’ve dragged Matt on, he deserved a little time for himself. We did get a chance to spend a bit of time at our hotel which had a few cute spots. Even though things don’t always go as planned, I’m making lemonade out of lemons and doing a style guide instead!
