Last week, I was in the heart of Los Angeles for a work event. At the end of the week, Chuck came down to enjoy a mini vacation in Hollywood.  It was so nice to be with my love after a long 4 days of working. The day he arrived, we walked up and down Hollywood Boulevard, took some pics with the stars, did some shopping and enjoyed 80 degree weather that we won’t be seeing in Seattle for awhile. We grabbed lunch at the Roosevelt Hotel at a fabulous burger spot called 25 degrees. If you’re in Hollywood, go there. You won’t be disappointed. In fact, a few of my colleagues went there multiple times during our event. So I’m pretty sure I have backup when I say it’s good!

I ended up wearing my favorite distressed denim with my long vest top and my Tory Burch sandals. It was comfortable and lightweight for walking around town in the hot weather. Quick side note – this top is really perfect for anytime of the year. You could throw a long sleeve shirt on underneath, pair it with some leather pants, and boots and call it a day. I love items I can wear year round.

After our long day of walking around town, I threw on one of my chunky necklaces, heels, and some red lipstick and was ready for dinner in 10 minutes. Quickest I’ve ever gotten ready.  Chuck was impressed!

That evening, we wanted to grab dinner somewhere that wasn’t a tourist attraction but more of a local spot so I called my girlfriend up who lives in LA for recommendations. She told me one of her favorite places was an Italian restaurant called, Pace (pronounced Pa-chay). It was about 10 minutes away from downtown Hollywood in Laurel Canyon and it was perfect for our date night! We had great food, great wine, great ambiance, and great company. We ended up chatting with the couple next to us who were pretty cool. All in all, a great experience. Next time you’re in LA, try it!

The next day, we got up super early (6:30AM – way too early!) and headed over to one of my girlfriends house to get ready for a fun day at Disneyland.  We had 10 hours of fun topped off with In-n-Out!

Enjoy your day!
