Disneyland's rules and accommodations for old people are really, really stupid. There's no nice way to put this, but it's just stupid. I took my grandparents to CA Adventure for their first time ever this past week, and I was trying to get them handicap accommodations since they are legally allowed to purchase handicap passes and what not for driving, so with this mentality in mind, I figured that getting handicap accommodations would be a piece of cake. Right? WRONG! So I went up to the guest relations in CA Adventure and the worker told me the only way to get handicap accommodations was to purchase a wheel chair so the cast members would get a visual cue that they needed help. They wouldn't even let them sit in the seats for Fanstasmic without a wheel chair because it's their visual cue. Okay.... It's clearly evident they're old. It's not like I'm bullshitting my foot is injured so I need a handicap pass, I clearly have old people in my party that can't stand for long periods of time nor can sit down on the floor because it was hard for them to get up. I told her we are more than willing to wait the times but she insisted on a wheel chair. My grandparents are perfectly able and there's no way in heck they would ever want to be in a wheel chair. The only ride that allowed me to wait the the waiting time while sitting was Space Mountain. Freakin Radiator Springs workers were hard asses about us waiting and told us that they would have to find us later in line when it's like we can do the same thing if we could all just stick together. So we ended up doing that whole meet up with each other later for Finding Nemo submarines and Monsters, Inc. Disneyland needs to get their shit together because this isn't okay.

I wish it would rain more in Southern California. If you didn't know already, SoCal is in a drought. It's pretty damn awful considering it's raining/snowing everywhere else. And guess what, it's just going to get warmer. Anyway, lets talk about look details.
Mine (Color Burst): So my look was inspired by the idea that you can still look good while it's raining. Just get those thigh high boots on and you'll be as warm as any other person. The key here is finding a warm coat also to keep you warm as wearing sweaters! You'd be surprised how warm you can be with just a sweater and a coat. Of course I have my pops of color with my hair and my umbrella. You can use anything as an accessory.
Victoria (Layered Grunge): What I love about Victoria's look is she can pick anything up and make it look rocking. She probably found these pieces in her parents closet and they are still relevant today. She didn't exactly grow up in the 90s but she could fool anyone with this look. Oversized coats are great for rainy days and plaid shirts provide that extra layer of comfort. She also wore a scarf, knit headband, and socks under her rainboots to provide extra warmth.
Julia (Bold Silence): I love how sophisticated she looks yet still has her adolescent innocence. I wish I was that stylish when I was her age. Her dress reminds me of a mime and her red sweater is very bold, hence the name bold silence for her. As I said for my look, you can still wear a dress in the rain and be totally warm. Red, white, and black always work for any occasion.
Amber (Comfy Casual): Now Amber's is the epitome of a rainy day: pullover sweater, jeans, and a beanie. And hey, even on days it isn't raining this is my go-to outfit. Don't forget the Ugg boots to keep your feet warm. It's a wonder what those boots can do when you're cold. I've found as long as my feet and neck are warm I'm set to go anywhere in the cold.
Hype me on Lookbook?

This is the perfect color for any look: Sultry, Casual, Date Night, you name it. When you need a dark color and don't want to wear maroons, browns, or purples, this is your color. It's like a perfect combination of each of these, well not really purple but it pulls blue tones. Aside from the color, it's great for moisture. I usually put chapstick on prior to putting on lipstick, but it isn't necessary to do this process when applying this lipstick.
Positives: Great color, available at major retailers (e.g., Macys), works for multiple occasions, great moisture
Negatives: A bit pricey

I really enjoyed my stay here for two reasons: It's very clean and the bed is freakin comfy. HOWEVER, you can hear EVERYTHING in your room. I heard

I FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT PAIR OF OVER THE KNEE BOOTS!
So the heel is pretty wide so it's comfortable walking around in for a long time. I'd highly recommend wearing it with socks because it rubs against your feet and starts to hurt if you don't wear them. But if you have socks on, you're set for the day. You'll be seeing this in a lot of upcoming looks because I love it so much! Also it's quiet for a boot with a heel. On a scale of 1 to 10, it's about a 4-5 whereas the Mally wedge is so freakin loud! I'd wear them more often if they weren't so loud. It's like hey! look at me! I'm walking here! I do like compliments on my outfits but getting stared at for being loud is another story. SOO these boots will get you those compliments without the noise!
