Hello Friends, You can read about my re-cap of our first two days in L.A here! Sunday dawned bright and sunny, and we uber-ed from our small hotel to Universal Studios. We had bought our tickets online, which got us early … Continue reading
On Wednesday we started off with at this fantastic little bakery called La Monarca. I sipped an amazing little cappuccino, and munched on this pineapple pastry. It was so good we went back there again for breakfast the next day!
We explored a good bit of Silver Lake, popped over to Koreatown to see the movie SnowPiercer, which was entertaining. We followed the movie up with Beard Papa’s green tea cream puffs (delicious!), and then pre-dinner cocktails at this fantastic open-air rooftop bar called Perch. It was amazing to see the city all spread out for miles on all sides.
We followed it up with dinner at Fifty-Seven, which was all around tasty.
On Sunday the Roomie and I watched the Help. I read the book a while ago and loved it, but hadn’t seen the movie. I am a fan of Emma Stone, so she was the real reason I had wanted to see it. The acting was fantastic and the storyline was touching. It was a great way to spend a sleepy Sunday afternoon snuggling with the pups.
As a substitute I was able to get away with a casual wardrobe. But now that I am teaching full time at one school I have noticed how formal the rest of the staff is. They rock the formal attire. I look nice, more dressy than anything else, but definitely not business casual all the time.
So friends, tell me the skinny. Where is the best place to buy dress pants? Typically I avoid them because I don’t feel like I know how to buy a pair that fits well. If you have a favorite pair, where are they from? What do you like about them? I know that I want them with belt loops, because I almost never wear the two pairs I have because they lack beltloops. Suggestions on how they should fit, colors you love wearing, how to know if they fit will all be greatly appreciated!!
My Kate Spade ring arrived Monday, and I love it! Thanks for convincing me to get it, it makes me feel so elegant! (If you missed that post, I talked about this ring here)
Sunday was a lazy beautiful day. Roomie and I hit the gym, then met up with my friend Annie in downtown Mountain View for delicious Italian food. We got gelato (twice in one weekend!) and browsed in some shops. Roomie and I saw this little gem in a bookstore.
We went back to the house and relaxed with the pups as we watched Shooter. It was a great day!
What did you do on Sunday? Did you get a chance to relax?
