Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s androgynous, travel-minded fashion sensibility was first introduced in 2010 on her blog, Tomboy Style (tomboystyle.blogspot.com). This past spring, the veteran writer and frequent flier set off on a new adventure: The Reed (the-reed.com) is part shop (with such finds as a vintage 1970s Céline folio), part blog and part travel site.


An early trail run in Griffith Park ending at the top of the Hollywood sign, then coffee and breakfast at Sqirl (sqirlla.com). A game of backgammon with my husband on our patio followed by a walk with our dog through Los Feliz and a sandwich from Larchmont Village Wine & Cheese (larchmontvillagewine.com). Home for an afternoon nap, then a movie at the ArcLight Hollywood (arclightcinemas.com), dinner at Angelini Osteria (angeliniosteria.com) with friends and a nightcap at Bar Stella (cafestella.com).
