AJ Wears :: A skirt and scarf

Hi from Hollis College in Rosewood, Pennsylvania! Just kidding. Any Pretty Little Liars fans out there?? We spent the day touring the studios at Warner Brothers and then attended a taping of Conan! Here's what I wore all day.

Mornings and evenings in LA(ish) can be cool, so I started the day in a scarf and ditched it for the tour once it got warm. We finished the day on Rodeo Drive, after hours. My husband thought he was SO SMART taking me to Rodeo after everything was closed! He was. He forgets I don't make enough to buy anything Hermes, even with my freelance gigs. But I did have fun ogling Chanel gloves and picking out my next Birkin. After, we found a cool little place called State Social House on Sunset and enjoyed some cocktails and chorizo potato skins...followed by gelato at Caffe Primo down the street. Okay, now for some more highlights from WB Studios.

We were on the studio tour while Pretty Little Liars was taping! They were working on a special black&white episode and there were pink golf carts everywhere. I didn't see Aria OR Mr. Fitz, but I did see that A had left his/her mark on the golfcarts with little acts of vandalism. Such a cute touch.

 HARRY POTTER, anyone?? The tour stops by a garage with actual vehicles used in movies like Get Smart, Batman, and Austin Powers. I couldn't resist posing with this car from Chamber of Secrets.

The Big Bang Theory stages were being used too! This is where I saw Johnny Galecki's Tesla. He was apparently doing a walk thru for the week's show. I can't believe he didn't have time for a few pictures and coffee. The nerve.

I highly recommend the WB Studio Tour! It's a little under $50 for a 2.5 hour tour, and our guide was awesome and gave us tickets to Conan for after. She also asked everyone on the tour what they loved so she could focus on those - I was her only PLL fan and her only Hart of Dixie fan, but she totally gave me the VIP tour. We even got to see the set for Lavon's house on Hart of Dixie! I touched the counter and was like..."waaaaaaade sat here." If you haven't seen it, you must. So cute.

Conan was great too - Zooey Deschanel was the guest. She was adorable but awkward. I totally get that vibe. It's very similar to my own.

Next stop - San Francisco! I'm sorry I'm not hosting the Friday Favorites today - but we'll be back on schedule next week when I'm back to normal. Please feel free to share your links in the comments anyway and y'all all support each other and see how people are remixing! I'm living out of a carry on right now, so I'm the remix queen. Gurl.

AJ Wears :: A utility vest

This was a fantastic weekend. I made a little getaway to Dallas with my mom and sister for a girls' weekend of shopping, eating, and girl time (which included helping my sister box ombre her hair!). So the next couple of days will be recapping the outfits I wore over the weekend - and I'll even throw some wise weekend packing tips your way.

 Tip one :: comfy shoes are key for a weekend of shopping. I picked these sassy little wedge sneakers for a day of driving and then exploring North Park. I had a girl following me around Sephora asking about these things, and I told her what I'm about to tell you - I'm not apologizing for loving wedge sneakers. They're probably dorky and stupid and ugly, but these things are comfy and make me feel cooler than I actually am. When they go out of style, I'll have to find something else to make me look cool like a belly button ring or a pink streak in my hair.

Tip two :: plan your outfits accordingly - or be prepared to buy something to make your outfit better. In this case, it was the vest. I was feeling frumpy after a day of traveling and my outfit was missing the va-va-voom, so I spent most of the afternoon looking for something to "fix" my outfit. I may have never tried on this vest at H&M, or even LOOKED at it, but I put it on and instantly loved the little something it added to my outfit. I bought it and totally became that person who pulls the tags off in front of the store and immediately put it on. I should be embarrassed, but instead I took pictures in it. BLOGGER PROBS.

Take One, Day 18 :: Travel Scarf

I spent the week trying to figure out how to work my Take One remix items to this outfit - not that this outfit is particularly lust worthy, but it set the tone for my entire trip wardrobe. Mostly I just wanted to wear my awesome sneaker wedges to the airport.

They were the perfect airport shoe, too. Comfy, cool, and easy to slip on and off in security. I'm going to ignore any jokes you make about velcro straps, today only, because I'm so exhausted. I would have taken some really sweet airport pictures, but that didn't happen. So you get pictures in the hotel by the elevators. SO CHIC RIGHT???

I love the Austin airport. You can tell you're going to get into something funky before you even set foot outside of the airport. So, assuming I can manage to take outfit photos, you'll see some sweet work outfits over the next few days, mixed with travel, mixed with the take one wardrobe remix! SO MANY THINGS!
