The Getty: Beautiful Art and Amazing Views

After our boat ride, we went back to the hotel to take a nap and get ready for dinner.  Before we went to dinner, we headed to the Paul J. Getty Museum in Los Angeles.  I have to admit that I was dead set on visiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, but my husband wouldn't accept it.  He wanted to show me the Getty and it's Rembrandts, so I acquiesced because the trip so far had been nothing short of amazing and I didn't want to fight.  Once we arrived and took the tram to the top, I was glad I did.  The view of LA was spectacular and the architecture of the center is flawless.  On top of all that, they have art!  We got there right before sunset and I didn't want to leave even when my stomach was growling because I was hungry.
Dress: Helmut Lang (old) I love the off the shoulder twist
Earrings: Banana Republic (old)
Necklace: Kendra Scott (from Gilt Warehouse Sale last month)
Bangles: Kendra Scott (old); Clutch: Prabal Gurung x Target
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Freya (old)
I know that I look very dressed up, but it's the same cotton dress that I wore to LuckyFABB last year (seen here) and I love it because your accessories really dress it up or down.  This was the amazing view as the sun was setting over LA.

What we really took away from the Eucharistic art at the museum was that Jesus is always depicted as being a very "cool" baby.  My husband sneaked this photo because honestly, look at the expression on his face. We imagined Jesus was saying: "Hi five, Mom!"  and Mary responds: "Ok, Jesus, but then you have to preach to these people, ok?" I know, we're terrible.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Mr. Fantastic and I are going on a wine-tasting trail, so I will keep you posted!
