These photos were taken in the back of the Jurassic Park Discovery Center at Universal's Islands of Adventure. We ended up spending quite a bit of time just sitting here watching The Hulk roller coaster since we needed a break from the crowds and this area was pretty dead (since it's behind a store.) This day was also plagued by a ton of rain storms. Luckily it was our last day in the parks and we already rode the rides we wanted so we were able to just hide out during the rain and leave the park a little earlier than planned to make it back to the hotel before the real storm started later in the evening.

Welcome to Florida week! As you will have seen on Instagram or last week's posts, I was in Florida at the end of last month for some Harry Potter and Disney fun! My first three days were spent at Universal Orlando, the following two at Disney and then a day at the hotel before an evening flight.  This is what I wore on the first day. It was warm, but still cool enough that this Frame sweater came in handy. During the day I was a bit warm but as it got more into the evening it cooled down and I was grateful for the long sleeves.

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.

I only managed to take 2 sets out outfit photos while on vacation a couple weeks ago. I ended up spending a lot of time working in our hotel and the rest sweating like a maniac in the theme parks, I only lasted a few hours each outing - except for Disney day - ha ha. This romper always joins me on my travels. It's just so easy to throw on for a day of running around in the heat. It will be a sad day when it gets worn out.  Thanks to my three lovely friends Rosie, Amy and Stephanie for help with these photos!

I've been to Universal so many times in the past 3 years but this trip I did something I've never done. The Men in Black Immigration Tour. We were lucky enough to be allowed into part of the ride that most people don't get to experience: the ground floor of the immigration room. We were also able to go to the new restaurant, Toothsome Chocolate Emporium, which doesn't officially open until later this month. It is steampunk themed and is super cool inside! I highly recommend it.

This was another day where I didn't take dedicated outfit photos so it's mostly a photo diary. How adorable is the Hogwarts Express conductor!? Loved him.
