With the recently-revamped Echo Park Lake getting some major love, there's no better time to flaunt your hometown pride than now. But what about LA's biggest star—you know, that 4,300-acre one? Artsy cool e-shop Vacation Days recently released its Griffith Park Trails scarf, and it's safe to say we're obsessed with this stylish alternative to those touristy "I Heart LA" tees.
The online boutique teamed up with English artist Karen Mabon of Red Brick to create the uber-adorable silk scarf, which stars some of the massive park's most popular personalities. (Can you name them all?) Shopkeeper Hamish Robertson tells us the hiking haven became his "de facto back yard" when he moved here last fall, so naturally, the giant urban space was the first to get Mabon's signature whimsical treatment.
We can totally see this sweet picnic-ready number on Indie 38er Poketo's shelves, but for now, you'll want to snap it up at Vacation Days' online shop here.
