My favorite thing about California is the palm trees that line the streets. If you stand at the start of Rodeo Drive, you’ll see a beautiful line of palm trees all the way down, gracing the forefront of every designer store imaginable. I love when stores have their own unique face on the building. I love that the representation of their theme or brand extends beyond their products. Although it’s obvious that at the designer level, they’re trying to sell an experience with their products. Even so, everything was still so lovely and quaint. I’ll be adding pictures from Rodeo Drive to my photography page as I get more time to unwind and back into the school mode!
After Rodeo Drive, I had In N Out for the very first time. I’d have to admit I was a little bit disappointed because I most definitely had my bar set high, but nonetheless, it was good. The animal fries? Better. In N Out was a quick stop on our way to Santa Monica beach and pier. I really missed walking on sandy beaches and just watching the waves flow in and out. Living along Lake Michigan doesn’t cut it, especially when you can’t go outside and enjoy it. I had never seen a beach with gymnastics rings. It was always just one of those things I only saw in TV or in movies, but it would be awesome if Chicago beaches could get them too.
Almost forgot, we saw Wiz Khalifa’s car at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel!!! But not a glimpse of Wiz himself.
A day full of impeccable beauty and hopeful luxury. ♡
