Urban WeedsPosted: April 30, 2012 | |
One of my laments about living in LA is that everything is so artificial; you can’t feel nature around you. So I was delighted to come across this vacant lot with grass and weeds growing freely (oh and, a random tractor, but it adds to the charm of the place.) There was a “remove weeds” notice already by the fence, so I had to sneak in before it was all gone. I got paranoid every time I heard a car approaching; luckily nobody caught me (I did get some weird looks, but I’m used to it now.) Come to think of it, “trespassing for a style blog photo shoot” would make a weird charge.
On an outfit-related note, it’s a copy of this pin (no original source, sorry.) Although, had I know I would be wading through waist-high weeds, I would’ve worn boots.

And yes I ripped off the Urban Weeds blog name for the post title. I’ve featured it on a Blog of the Week before, but couldn’t hurt if it directed some stray search phrases my way 😉
