Surprise, surprise- another floral look by yours truly 😉 Lately, I’ve noticed that all black looks/ (primarily) black looks come a bit too naturally, and wearing cheerier prints and colors has required more will-power and effort. I am half allowing myself to bow to this newfound urge, and other parts forcing myself out of it! With nature doing its spring thing, Easter around the corner, and the sun making more consistent appearances, I’d say it’s time for my wardrobe to follow suit.
On that note: put on your spring best, because I’m sharing some of my favorite OC activities that are ideal for a gorgeous spring day (and outfit!).
1. Lido Marina Village — this is actually where these photos were shot! No surprise that I am beach-obsessed and automatically favor any shop/restaurant that is adjacent to the ocean – this spot is no different… BUT if you love hanging with your gals, shopping around, stopping for a casual lunch or coffee, and just so happen to appreciate a marina view- enjoy!
2. Day drinking in Laguna — as I’m getting *older*, the more I begin to favor day drinking vs. going out at night. I’m actually super interested in hearing everyone’s point of view on this! My sister and I love to debate this topic, as she insists day drinking exhausts her; but that’s what naps are for?? Anyhow- this suggestion comes with a bit of a bias, due to the fact that my dad is in a band that plays at Mozambique every other Sunday, and I often find myself stopping in to watch him and & indulging in a mimosa or two. They have great food and a fabulous rooftop bar, as does Skyloft (order the pretzels off their happy hour menu if you love yourself).
3. Crystal Cove — if you’re looking to be more active (maybe you went day drinking the day before and are hoping to combat any existing laziness), head down to Crystal Cove for a relaxing walk to the ocean. It’s extra beautiful in the morning, and that way you can ‘earn’ your breakfast. I did this a couple of weeks ago, then headed to one of my faves, Mustard Cafe for a delicious breakfast burrito (that I am currently craving).
Moral of the story: I love to eat and drink- bonus points if it’s outside and accompanied by a rooftop 😉 What have you all been up to since spring began last week?! I’ve linked some similar items to my look below- enjoy your Monday!
