AJ Wears :: A Skirt, Some leggings

Hello from California! After a few days of divas and shoes and glam and all that, I met up with my husband in Venice for some R&R. We decided to piggyback off of my JF trip and make a vacation/anniversary trip out of the whole thing. So! Here's what I wore for my beach day. Ignore the John Hamm character staring me down in the background.

 We woke up after being in a tempurpedic coma (thanks, beach house!) and decided to bike to the boardwalk at Venice Beach for some brunch. I LOVE BIKES. Oh man. This skirt/tee combo was perfect for the trip, especially since I wore cotton shorts underneath.

After a bacon egg and cheese and Snapchatting in front of the Snapchat HQs (so meta) we biked to Santa Monica for some shopping and a snack and I saw Rosario Dawson at the Apple Store and bought a leopard print purse from Fossil. A flat tire and about four bottles of water later, we dropped by the Santa Monica Pier to take some pics before heading back to Venice.

The sun goes down, it gets cool here! I ditched the skirt and tee for an olive jacket, stripes, and leggings to head down to Hollywood for a few.

 We also had a chance to drop by Fat Sal's for a sandwich - way too much of a sandwich, by the way - mine had chicken fingers, buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing, mozzarella sticks, french fries, and like everything but the kitchen sink. SO. MUCH. Nom.

I haven't been to Hollywood since I was a kid, so it was fun to test my hands in front of the Chinese Theater (mine are close to Judy Garlands!) and wait for Marilyn Monroe's ghost at the Roosevelt.

I'm hoping to do a full packing/outfit guide when the trip is over, but hopefully these hold everything over until then!
