On the first day of our trip we cheated on Disney and went to Universal to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter all decked out for the holidays! This was the first year that both parks were decorated and there was even a light projection show on Hogwarts Castle. The show goes off about every 20 minutes after dusk, which is super convenient if you can't be there at a specific time. There's just something so much more magical about Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley when they're decked out for the holidays!

We made sure to ride Escape From Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express while we were there since my sister hasn't been to Universal since Diagon Alley opened. We also rode The Mummy (one of my other faves) and the Jimmy Fallon ride. I was hoping to ride Hulk, since it's another favorite, but it wasn't working when we wanted to ride and we had so much else going on.

I dressed on theme by wearing a green snakeskin sweater even though I'm not a Slytherin. This was the only day I wore sandals on the trip because it was so cold! I brought these jeans hoping to wear them with sandals because they don't look good with boots, but warmth is more important than fashion so I wore them with boots the rest of the trip.

This is what I wore back in 2012 when I FINALLY met J.K. Rowling for the first time. She was doing a reading for her book, The Casual Vacancy, at Lincoln Center and signed autographs after. So when I say met, I mean was in line, got my book signed and quickly said "thank you so much!!!!!!" I've been in her vicinity quite a few times but sadly have never had the chance to say more than that to her.

I really loved the pants I had on in the original outfit but I got rid of them because the fit was just a little too odd and since they were from ASOS they deteriorated a bit. But now I have these purple pants from Banana Republic that I got during my event at a local store!

I wore this for a belated birthday lunch date with a friend last week. VERY belated since her birthday was in March...oops! We went to our favorite restaurant, The Chowder Pot in Branford. It is SO good. We always stuff ourselves with salad, honey butter bread, shrimp and fish! This time we shared blackened tilapia and shrimp scampi....mmm!

P.S. Happy Star Wars Day!!!! I'll be spending my day working and watching Rogue One and Episodes 4-8! May the Fourth Be With You!

Apparently whenever I wear green and want a second layer I have to wear this purple cardigan. I just love the two colors together so much so why change what's not broken? I've been neglecting these Free People flare jeans the past few months because of snow and not being in the mood to wear heels in the middle of winter. Hopefully I'll get out of my rut and start pulling them out some more instead of always wearing my skinnies.

It wouldn't be London without some rain. Oddly enough this was the first trip where I've experienced a full day of rain. We headed to Oxford in the afternoon to visit Christ Church since some Harry Potter scenes were filmed in the interior. I also experienced Nandos for the first time. Unfortunately I was dumb and got a pita when I should have gotten the burger version (Not a fan of sauces or cole slaw...)

It's animal print overload in today's throwback outfit. Ha ha. Snakeskin on my sweater and jeans plus leopard print on my shoes. Luckily the jeans are subtle so the total look isn't insanity.

I was a bit of a slacker for outfit posts on this vacation so I only have 2 more to share. I also kept forgetting during the day, while it was bright out, so the quality of pictures isn't the best. These photos were taken inside Magical Menagerie, the namesake of my Harry Potter fan site!

Post titles are getting harder and harder . I was going for a play on green with envy but it doesn't really work. Here's a cozy outfit I wore to watch Star Wars with my family. We watched Episodes 5 and 6 with a dinner break in between.  Exciting, right? This sweater is one of my favorites, especially since it's cashmere. It makes at least 3 appearances a year on the blog, though I wear it more often than that.

As of tomorrow it will officially be Autumn. Let's hope it lasts a long time and we don't skip straight to Winter. I love the days of perfect temperatures, pretty colored leaves and the crisp smell in the air.  It's also almost time to start watching Halloween movies every day! See my list of must-watch movies from a couple years ago!

I always feel like I can only wear these pants in the cooler weather even though the fabric is thin. The colors are just too dark for the middle of Summer. But the end of Summer - Fall is the perfect time for them!

Our second day in London a group of us went to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter. They have made a few changes since I was last there for the Grand Opening in 2012 so it was really fun to visit again, especially with people who had never been before.  If you are ever visiting London and are a movie fan (doesn't even have to be Harry Potter) I highly recommend it.

This is what I wore for the first day of the Harry Potter festivities! I wanted to bring outfits that were Harry Potter-esque but not costumey. So here's a Slyherin-ey snakeskin sweater! Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of this outfit during the day, so we had to do it inside the hotel (without the flash) so they're a little grainy.  You can get another glimpse of this look from my 'Pal'entine's Day post.
