Even before I arrived in Los Angeles for college almost two years ago, I’ve been so excited to explore this city. Now I’ve been here for three and a half semesters, I have finally crossed visiting LACMA off my bucket list. God knows how long it would have taken me to go to LACMA had my sister, who’s visiting for the rainiest weekend in LA, not specifically request to visit. I’ve felt similar “tourist in my own city” moments when I’ve had friends come to visit in New York, but it feels different in LA. Maybe it’s because I feel like I have less time now that I’m in college, or the fact that LA is huge, or the fact that I can’t hop on a train or a subway to get everywhere in LA – but regardless of why, it’s a shame that I haven’t explored more in my time here.
One thing I have for sure done in college is acquired a very specific taste in styles of jeans. My mom jean to normal jean ratio has increased to 1 to 1, which is both terrifying and fantastic. As someone who was not a fan of mom jeans until I thought I bought jeans online that turned out to be mom jeans, I have come a long way in the past few years. These are hopefully (but probably not) my last new pair of mom jeans for a good, long while. They are from Brandy Melville and they’re not your average pair of mom jeans, that’s for sure. They different colored patches actually create a double layer of denim, which is a little thick for LA’s typical weather, but it has been perfect for this crazy rain and cold temperatures we’ve been having.
Tunes: Ed has done it again with “How Would You Feel”
This post is a little all over the place, but let’s just hope for more exploring LA, more diverse denim purchases, and more Ed in the future.
