Honey, I'm a Star!

(at Universal Studios)

I've been bugging Rye Bread to take me to Universal Studios for about a year now...why? I don't know, I guess I haven't been in awhile and it just looks fun. Funny story: we were supposed to go some time last year, but he talked me out of it and the following week, half of it burned down! =( Haha, that's not really a funny story...

Well this 5-day (yes FIVE-DAY) weekend was the perfect opportunity for us to play tourists and visit Universal Studios, Hollywood.

Going to a theme park in SoCal during the summer provides a conundrum: what do I wear so that I don't get ugly tanlines, but is also comfortable? Solution: a simple, halter-neck romper:
i borrowed this from my roommie, and added a red belt for a splash

Love this romper because of the details of the neckline:
Pony tails are a MUST at theme parks, no messing around with curls or flat bedhead for me! It's also important to wear simple (and LIGHT) make-up, since half of it will either be sweated off or splashed off...I opted for liquid liner on both the top and bottom lash lines (to avoid raccoon eyes)
Universal was a blast - we got suckered into buying yearly passes (because it ended up being like $20 more per person). Such suckers.



hell to the nah, I'm not about to be one of THOSE girls who wear heels (wedges or stilettos) to a theme park.
Happy 4th of July weekend!
What are your special patriotic, fireworks-filled, bbq-eating plans?

P.S. I forgot to mention the negative side to wearing a jumper or a romper when going to a theme park: BATHROOM situations are a nightmare! They take a little longer and are a little more complicated. ..Next time, I might opt for a halter and shorts. =)

  7. Ahh, I'm so living vicariously through you! I've always wanted to visit there -- is that where they're building that Harry Potter theme park? If so, I'm totally going haha.

    Sorry to hear about the bathroom trickery with the outfit, but it's such a cute outfit nevertheless! Hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!

  13. You looked super cute. Love the tie at the top of the romper and how you accessorized with the belt. But I agree, love rompers, but they're such a pain when you need to go. :)

    xo, Becs
