Wardrobe Wednesdays: Heidi Klum @ LAX

heidi-klum-lax

Heidi Klum is making sweater weather look all sorts of fun with the rainbow striped sweater she was spotted wearing at LAX on October 1.

She paired the colorful stripes with distressed denim carpis and a pair of chunky nude colored heels. The light blue color and the softness of the heels definitely tone down the brightness on top.

It might be a bit cold to do the heels in New York, but I’d definitely wear a similar sweater. Below are a few pieces to help you recreate the look.

1. J. Crew, $69.99

3. Rosegal, 18.06

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Fergie @ LAX

Fergie at LAX

Fergie was spotted at LAX on the way to Japan last week in this black and white ensemble.

She owned that black and white striped high low dress shirt by tying it up in a knot in the front. I really love her choice of footwear, opting to add a little silver to the mix with the metal toe on the boots.

Gallery Mondays: ‘Elevate’ by Joyce Dallal

Elevate, Joyce Dallal

Since everyone is going on spring break, I decided to pull this gem by Joyce Dallal from my camera roll.

I saw this piece at LAX on the way back from Los Angeles in September 2015. Called Elevate, Joyce Dallal uses paper airplanes to symbolize the departures that occur at the airport on a daily basis.

What I love most about the installation is the way it’s positioned. The paper airplanes are spiraling upwards in unison, almost as if they intend to fly straight out the window.

California Day 6: So Long, West Coast

Down on the West Coast, they love their movies
Their golden gods, and rock and roll groupies
And you’ve got the music, you’ve got the music in you, don’t you?

– Lana Del Rey

My final hours in California consisted of eating breakfast at the hotel and watching the morning news on ABC 7. We checked out a little after 10 a.m. in hopes of getting the rental car back in time to arrive at LAX by 11:30.

The traffic could have been worse. We managed through make it through security at 11. I had to go through twice because I had forgotten to finish drinking all the water in my aluminum bottle.

Oops.

There was a huge storm in the Northeast, so the flight was delayed for a half hour. The gate also changed about 4o minutes before we were allowed to board.

The flight back seemed shorter. My aunt ended up sitting in isolation two rows in front of my mom, dad, and I. If it were up to me I would have traded her for my dad, because he kept stealing my cheez-its.

We entertained ourselves with in-flight entertainment for the majority of the flight. The Castle rerun marathon was on TNT, so I was hooked for three hours before falling asleep.

I made sure to put my headphones back in before landing because the clogged ear life is not fun at all.

The runway was still wet when we landed at JFK, but the sky was clear. We made it home in a cab a little before midnight. I wasn’t as jetlagged as I thought I’d be the next day when I woke up for work.

Overall, I had a super fun time on the West Coast. I hope to visit again soon!

California Day 1: Walking to the Wrong Store Location in Montebello

Last week I went to California with my family! I’ve decided to document my 6-day trip with a daily blog post of my adventures. We stayed in a hotel in Montebello, and visited Los Angeles for the majority of our sightseeing trips. Here’s what we did on day one!

Hoped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan …

After a long flight and a long wait for the rental car, we made it to our hotel to find that our room wasn’t ready. So, to kill time, we went to the Domino’s Pizza place in Montebello because by then it was already 6 p.m. New York time and we hadn’t yet eaten anything since breakfast.

Cue the pizza pig out.

(Side note: Check out this ginormous fish in the hotel lobby’s fish tank!)

After the pizza we decided we wanted to fill our mini fridge with some groceries, but my dad had already dozed off and my mom was too scared to drive as a tourist in California. So we went by foot. The walk was only supposed to be 20 minutes long, so my mom and aunt agreed to it.

We stopped at Starbucks for free cups of water. The Starbucks in Montebello has a drive thru! Whattttt!

The scenery in Montebello is so gorgeous. Everyone has such beautiful shrubs and gardens.

We even saw a lime tree!

So after 20 minutes of complaining about the crappy pathway we had to walk on to get there (the concrete was severely damaged by tree roots), we finally get to the last turn on the Google Maps directions.

But instead of the supermarket we ended up at the supermarket warehouse, which doesn’t sell to the public. Oops.

My mom and aunt were so pissed. We tried waiting for the bus to go back but it never came. Until we started walking again.

Figures.

Anyway, we found a cute kitty in the Starbucks parking lot on the way back to the hotel.

The time difference caused me to fall asleep at 9 p.m. and wake up at 6 a.m. California time. #Jetlagged.

Stay tuned for day 2!
