A Trip to Jurassic World in My Alan Grant Bound

The kiddo and I recently got to go back to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out the new Jurassic World section on the lower lot.

We had a fantastic time!  The area was packed!  Packed!  So, Benji couldn’t even ride the updated ride.  Even with the single-rider line (I’m too chicken to go on it), the wait was over an hour and a half!  So, next time.  Also, the triceratops wasn’t out and about.  So, also next time.  Now we have an excuse to go back, not that we really needed one.

But, we DID get to pet Tango, the baby raptor…

We also got to meet Blue and give her a command.  It was awesome!

I know we looked scared at a dude in a suit, but once you are face to face with Blue, let’s just say it’s a little nerve-wracking!

For our day at the park, I wore my Alan Grant bound.

The Team Build is as follows:

  • The Scientist are the Chuck Taylors
  • The Exotic is also the bandana and the aviator sunglasses
  • The Blaster doesn’t really apply, but a nice natural make-up works

This bound was super comfy, even with the super hot day.  I really love the skirt so much.  Retrolicious pieces are size-inclusive and reasonably priced.  Check out their website here.

Recently, Her Universe released a brand new Harry Potter collection with items for all the houses.  There were also a couple of items part of their Our Universe collection as well, including lightweight house robes that are way more comfortable than the ones sold at Universal parks.

It is difficult to find pretty Hufflepuff wear, so I snagged this dress when I saw it.  The yellow isn’t too mustard-y (not a word, but well it is now).  The length is also fantastic!

I also love the house patches on each dress.  The fabric is nice and stretchy, but still holds its shape.

Wardrobe Solutions: Classic Chucks

When putting together pretty much any outfit, my go-to is a classic pair of Chucks.

Besides being super comfy, they come in every conceivable color and style.  I even found a camo pair for my nephew once!

Chucks can be dressed way up or way down.  They go with a ton of styles, vintage, bobby soxer, rockabilly, goth and modern casual styles.  You can start wearing Chucks from toddler age and keep up wearing them right up to your golden years.
