I’d wear my hair in a clean top bun with shag bangs slightly parted in the middle and finish with hoop earrings inspired by the ambiance. Flavors of María | Taco María For a dining adventure, sit at Taco María’s counter and watch how much detail goes into every course of their Prix Fixe menu. Lived-in waves would be my choice for the evening. Photo By: Amanda Proudfit Beans and Beats | Common Room Roasters Common Room Roasters roasts their beans in-house and there’s a DJ on Saturdays. Being that the sun is up, I would throw on a cute hat and run some Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil through my ends for effortless hair.

From punk to hip hop, folk to reggae, they have it all. A messy topknot will keep you cool through the night.

Wear it parted; you won’t want to compete for attention at LSXO.

Sugar Shack has a romantic authenticity that only comes with age. The patio is where to sit on a sunny day. Wear your hair tied up in a scarf.
