Zara Dress, Homemade Necklace, Korcula Ring, Michael Kors Wedges
A year after Chris Burden’s Urban Light installation went up at the LACMA, I finally got a chance to swing around on the 202 vintage lamp posts this Sunday. Though the weather was overcast, I decided to lighten things up by throwing on my new tangerine colored dress, which I bought specifically for my upcoming trip to Hawaii. Patience has never been my strong suit.

Since the weather is almost always warm in Los Angeles, I have minimal experience when it comes to layering. With this sweater in particular though, I wanted to overlap the two sides to create a more slimming silhouette, a trick I inherited after seeing Sarah Jessica Parker do the same here. Sadly, this only worked until lunch, after which I was too full to keep my belt wrapped around both my top and sweater comfortably. Note to self: when layering, go up a size to accommodate extra layers so that my belt doesn’t pop off unexpectedly.

Instead of going out for a pre-fixed dinner, my boyfriend and I opted for Mickey Mouse pancakes, rides on the Matterhorn Bobsleds and eight hours spent wandering around Disneyland. Not only did I have a blast, but I also came away with a few learned lessons:
-Children should not be on leashes. Ever.
-Don’t ride Splash Mountain if it’s less than 70°.
-Getting married at Disneyland isn’t as glamorous as it sounded when I was young (I saw a bride with Mickey Mouse ears and a veil).
-Judging by my performance on the Autopia ride, my license should be revoked.
-Rat tails are never okay.
