Baby, you'd dig it the most!

Vincent: You know what they call a...a...a Quarter Pounder with cheese in Paris?

Jules: They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
Vincent: No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the *&%#  a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules: Then what do they call it?
Vincent: They call it a Royale with Cheese.
Jules: A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?
Vincent: Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big - Mac.
Jules: Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?
Vincent: I dunno I didn't go into Burger King.
In N Out is iconic in California so much so that they have their own lingo such as,
"I'll have a double double animal style."
or my personal fave
"Grilled cheese with grilled onions"
You can't come to California and not try "In N Out" even if you are not a meat eater, because the fries are awesome and you can always order the "grilled cheese" which is just a burger without the pattie but with all the yummy fixin's.
Nope, it's not on the menu, actually none of the lingo is you have to be an insider or merely a Californian.

Camilla and I chose this spot as a location for one of our Loris Lookbook shoots because of the Californian culture it exudes and the fact it is a only "west coast" burger joint.

It is also good old Americana, served up Cali style and whats better than that for a spring featured style book.

West Coast

"For a second there I thought you disappeared
It rains a lot this time of year"
"And we both go together if one falls down
I talk out loud like you're still around"
"And I miss you
I'm goin back home to the west coast
I wish you woulda put yourself in my suitcase"

This is more from our lookbook shoot for Loris Shoes.
Inspired by the natural surroundings of our own beautiful beach we grabbed some vintage surfboards we have hanging around the house and headed down.
It was the morning after a huge rainstorm that had been plummeting down on us for days. And after a good storm the next morning is always divine.
All we needed was a vintage Volkswagen Bus and everything would have been perfect.
Camilla is wearing a maxi dress from Loris shoes.
Popped over the maxi is a Crochet hooded top from Free People.
And belted it with a beaded belt from Anthropologie
  Wrapped around Camilla's head is a scarf from Loris Shoes
The platforms are the Jeffery Campbell San Diego from Loris. 
Believe it or not but these platforms are very comfortable and easy to walk in.
It was a beautiful morning with not many people on the beach, mostly surfers. And although you can't tell by the amazing blue sky and sun it was damn cold.
Well, at least by Southern California standards it was.

Lately we have been ending a lot of our posts with a video. So why stop now?
Here's an oldie but a goodie
And the best version of this song to a video I've found also, it was shot by a film student.

Pretty in Pink

Such a beauty.
This shot just makes me happy.

 Who is this girl?
She was shot by two different street style bloggers and I am in love with her hair and whole look. 
We've seen a lot of hair that has a dipped into paint look with coloring just on the ends. We have also seen a lot of platinum blonds ever since Abbey Lee bleached hers. But the light tinge of color over platinum is gorgeous, well especially on her.
 The most famous Platinum blond in my book. 
So happy and so beautiful.

Well it's early Sunday Morning and I need coffee now!
Just thought I'd share a bit of beauty since tomorrow is back to work and school for most of us.
