I have a confession to make. I have a Target problem.
No matter how much I plan and prepare, my shopping cart always ends up with things I had no intention of buying!
For the most part, this works out in my favor. Like last week when I bought this gorgeous purpley-pink (is that a word?!) velvet wrap dress (under $30), or that time I bought all of the $5 Target wines.
My boyfriend Doug always says that I’m a marketer’s dream because I fall for every marketing ploy (which is also hilariously ironic since I’m a marketer), and Target definitely gets me every time. But honestly, if getting hypnotized by the red bullseye and leaving with a cart full of amazing goodies is wrong, then I don’t want to be right!
Especially when one of the items in my cart is a super trendy, vibrant and versatile dress that will take me all the way into spring (and it was on sale)! Paired with pink strappy sandals, my favorite bamboo purse (under $45) and the prettiest gem colored earrings, this look would be perfect for a wedding, bridal shower or date night. It matched perfectly in front of the insta-famous California Dreaming mural!

The massive mural wall was painted by Ricardo Gonzalez of It’s A Living, and stands at a whopping 26 feet by 74 feet in the Chinese Laundry parking lot in Culver City (3485 La Cienega Blvd LA, 90016). You’ll get your best snaps at the California Dreaming wall later in the day, between 3:30pm-6pm or before sunset. Keep in mind that it’s in a parking lot, so the weekends are the best time to visit!
It’s murals like this make it so fun to live in Los Angeles! From Venice beach, to the Downtown LA Arts District and popups like the Museum of Ice Cream, it really does have some of the most insta-worthy places in the world.
