I was beyond thrilled that the temperature got up into the low 80s during the day, because I love bragging to them about our weather in Los Angeles! ;) Ok, so not really that, but mostly because in Nebraska it has been getting much colder than LA ever gets for well over a month now. I really wanted them to be able to relax in sunny Los Angeles and enjoy one last round of short sleeves, cropped pants, and open-toed shoes. And let me tell ya, they loved every second of it.
Our activities included shopping the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, wine tasting in Malibu, and even touring The Getty Center, so my outfits stayed pretty casual all weekend. I fully took advantage of the shorts weather though, and even threw on sandals for all the walking about. Then, just tossed on cozy flannel for an extra layer for when it got dark and I was set.
