The past two weeks have been so crazy busy! I was in Vegas for a girls trip the weekend of July 4th and this past weekend my husband and I went to LA for a good friend’s wedding (yes I flew to Vegas, flew back to Philly, and flew back to LA!). When we were in LA we were on crunch time so I wanted to squeeze in as many sights I could see into half a day.
We had some time Thursday evening when our flight got in and took a drive over to the Santa Monica Pier. We had dinner with our friends at Misfit (the food was very yummy!) and then walked over to the Pier. I was slightly disappointed that by the time we got there everything was pretty much closed but it was nice to walk up and down the pier. I'm sure it would have been so nice during the day.
The next day we had half a day on Friday to see some of the sights before our friends wedding festivities kicked off. One of the sights we really enjoyed while we were out in LA was the Griffith Observatory. The Griffith Observatory doesn’t open until about noon so we made sure to get their early before the crowds. We had so many beautiful views of LA and of course, had a great view of the Hollywood sign! After that we drove over to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was super crowded but it was fun to see all the stars and take pictures with our favorite ones! After that our last stop was Beverly Hills because I wanted to see what the hype was around Rodeo Drive. Rodeo Drive definitely did not disappoint and there were so many amazing stores! Also, I would say Beverly Hills was so nice and lush with so many beautiful palm trees. I could have spent a whole day there if I could!
As a sidenote, I wore this super comfortable skort (yes I said skort you're probably thinking "wow I haven't worn one since I was like 10!") but this was sooo comfortable! I wanted to buy them in a few different colors but my local Express in downtown Philadelphia was out of them!
