Day 173-176: My Trip to Los Angeles!!!


Day 1- This is what I wore on the plane.  My Peter Pan collar polka dot top from Forever 21 with my Maroon pullover from old Navy.  I paired that with my boyfriend jeans from GAP and my favorite animal print flats.  

Very comfy and practical airport attire!  Better than the girls in front of me going through the security line.  Why would you wear complicated zip up boots to the airport when you know who have to take them off???


Day 2 - My second day in LA was a super duper blast (like all the days)!  I have pictures below of what all I did, so right now I'll stick to the clothes.  After a Mark McGrath concert (yes ladies, the super hot lead singer of Sugar Ray) we went to the ultra hip and trendy bar/restaurant Sur.  Apparently one of those 'Real Housewives' owns the place and she has her own reality show that centers around the employees that work there.  Two of the guy bartenders from the show where working that night.  One was named Jax.  I have no idea about the other.  Apparently Jax is a big draw because skanky girls were throwing themselves at him and bulldozing us over to get a picture with him.  Stupid!

Anyways, the outfit.  I wore my animal print tank with my green military jacket.  My skinny black jeans and my new (to replace the ones I broke a few weeks ago) Mary Jane pumps.  I accessorized with my adorable elephant necklace and gold Coach purse.  Oh, and that is not a mojito in my hand ;)


Day 3 - On Sunday night we went to the Pantages Theatre to watch Evita.  So, I was all dressed up in my Target cocktail dress (plum color), my Banana Republic jacket (purchased second hand from somewhere) and my Mary Jane pumps.  I no longer on the dress however.  I decided it was more suited for Zanne, so I gave it to her.  Zanne also believes I am the only person still alive that wear panty hose. Maybe so, but my legs are way to pale to go without.

Oh, and this picture was taken while we were waiting on the subway to take us to Hollywood Boulevard so we could watch the show.



Day 4 - Time to say goodbye:(.  Another airport appropriate outfit.  This time I wore my military jacket over a black and white stripe tank.  I wore my Lucky Brand jeans, animal print flats and animal print scarf as well.  Plus, I have on no make-up.  Eek!!!

This picture was taken in the lobby of Zanne and Bill's apartment complex in downtown LA.  The building use to be the old train terminal (I think) or subway...something.


Okay, now on to some of the fun things I did while in LA.

Day 1 - I had a chili cheeseburger from Tommy's.  All I can say is that it was AMAZING!!!!!!!


Day 2 - Enjoyed morning yoga on the beach in Santa Monica.  Umm, the water was COLD!  The scenery was beautiful!  I wish I lived near a beach so I could do it everyday!


Day 2 - Celebrated my 32nd birthday at SUR.  The waited brought us cobbler with a flaming candle (firework really) and sand to me.  I may or may not have been a little tipsy in this picture:)


Day 3 - Walked down Hollywood Boulevard on our way to the Pantages Theatre to watch Evita.  Very cool!


Day 3 - Rode on the subway on the way to the theatre.  I have now ridden on the subway in New York City and Los Angeles.  


Day 3 - My first time eating a raw oyster thank you very much!  I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about.  All I could taste was the cocktail sauce.  And I love me some cocktail sauce:)!!!


Day 3 - Zanne and I outside of the Pantages.  Words can not describe how beautiful that theatre is!  Gorgeous!!!


Day 4 - Since I had an evening flight, we had plenty of time to do some fun stuff earlier in the day.  We hiked in the Hollywood hills.  I saw the Hollywood sign from a distance.  It isn't as big as one may think.


We also stopped at the observatory since we were in the area.  The views around LA are amazing!  



Minus the one dead rat I saw on the sidewalk, I can honestly say LA is an amazing place and I can't wait to visit again!

Thank you so much Zanne and Bill for your amazing hospitality!  I had a blast and can't wait to come back!

Happy Shopping and Happy Travels,
Christin
