Ready for Some Ameeenals?

Up the coast

Just goofing around

For anyone who might be considering taking a short trip to San Diego, this is the itinerary we came up with as we went along:

Day 1:
  • Arrived in SD at 1pm, picked up rental car (convertible a must!), and checked into hotel
  • Drove to Ocean Beach (where the opening sequence of Almost Famous was filmed)
  • Visited Old Town San Diego for some overly touristy ambience
  • Spent our night in the Gaslamp District and had dinner at and had this and this
Day 2:
  • Woke up early, walked through Balboa Park, and made sure to allot several hours for the San Diego Zoo (bring your walking shoes!)
  • Had lunch at and ate this
  • Drove up the coast through Pacific Beach, Del Mar, and Encinitas to take in that Pacific breeze
  • Cruised through the mountains to Escondido
  • Had good & cheap Mexican food at JV's and had the best mole ever
  • Went down to Coronado to visit the lovely historic Hotel del Coronado
  • Returned to the Gaslamp District for a nightcap at The Lincoln Room

All in all, I felt like we got a lot out of our trip even though it was a mere 2 days. If I had more days to spend, I would have seen Coronado during the day, stopped at all the coastal towns we passed through, and visited the museums in Balboa Park. Just a warning though, it's absolutely gorgeous there so you might get hooked.


Pacific Breeze

Old Town San Diego

Day: // vintage linen blazer / Rag & Bone knit tank / Target ponte pants / vintage riding boots / Desmo bag / gold nugget necklace by Anthem (bday gift from hubby!) //
Ocean Beach Park
Night: // Isabel Marant Etoilé jacket / Rag & Bone knit tank / Target ponte pants / Minimarket wedges / Desmo bag / Obaku watch //

We just got back from our whirlwind trip to beautiful San Diego. I could really get used to the weather, scenic mountains, white sand beaches, and the list goes on... This trip only makes my urge to move out of this city even stronger. I definitely have a case of wanderlust.

Recognize this cutie from here? Yep, I think we have unofficially adopted him.

Yeah, I know. I couldn't help but add my own cheesy twist to the title and since I used to play the song when I djed (Tone-Loc is the man!), it makes it all the more appropriate. Plus, you might have to get used to more ridiculous titles just because I've really come to embrace animal print and have accumulated quite a number of pieces to showcase for fall. This lovely little sheer number was stolen from straight out of my grandma's closet. You might be thinking I'm a bad thieving granddaughter stealing right off of granny's back, but rest assured, I got her blessing before whisking this piece away.

Check out my Pocahontas earrings (or at least that's what Bryan lovingly refers them to). Yep, my 1st Jewelmint piece that I've had my eyes on ever since Kate started wearing them. The burnished look gives it an antiquey feel while the bright cabochon adds the pop I need for this black and gray outfit.

I'll be leaving for San Diego in the morning to celebrate a special birthday year. That's right everyone, I'm turning 30. If anyone has suggestions on where to go (besides the zoo), I am all ears. But before I leave you, I wanted to announce the winner of the Kranich's giveaway.

The winner is Matilda!
Congrats and enjoy the beautiful jewelry!
