This past weekend my boyfriend and I took a mini road trip from Las Cruces, through Scottsdale, up to San Diego, and back through Scottsdale again. Visiting family in Scottsdale was perfect because were able to split the otherwise 10 hour drive!
Our time in San Diego was hardly more than 24 hours, but we made the most of it! A little bit of shopping, eating, and beaching gave us our California fix — for now. I’m so proud of myself for how little I shopped! Zara in Scottsdale was a dream, but I refrained. This denim frilled sleeve top was awfully tempting!If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you know about these adorable aviator glasses from Urban Outfitters. I was basically wearing them the entire trip after I purchased them in Scottsdale! SO obsessed.
Major heart eyes here for these floral pants from Zara that I scored for $13 back in February! This majorly marked down item is sold out now (not surprised), but they so have some equally adorable ones for this season here. They’re perfect with a simple white v-neck and these Sam Edelman pumps that have a little bit of floral detail on them! I got them at Nordstrom last year, but they’re now available on Amazon in 3 other colors (limited sizes) for a steal!We had to choose just one beach to go to since our time was limited, and La Jolla was absolutely gorgeous. It was a little overcast and a slightly chilly next to the beach, so I got to break out my BLANKNYC leather jacket! I haven’t worn it much, so I’m happy to finally be wearing such a perfect piece for spring!Further away from the beach, we found a gorgeous little walkway full of greenery, overlooking La Jolla beach. I had to get a shot from behind of these Topshop shorts that I got at Nordstrom. They’re called “mom shorts” and the fit is absolutely amazing! Such a great summer pick for curvy girls who love anything high-waisted, like me!Clearly, I was blissfully happy to be at the beach. Also blissfully happy wearing my go-to black and white color combo. Always a favorite!I swapped my leather jacket for this lightweight sweater while we explored the area. Craving something sweet, we stopped at the most delicious gelato place called Bobboi Natural Gelato. I got matcha and mocha flavors, both with chocolate chips in them! So yummy!La Jolla had the best places to take photos! I really had the best time there. California was too good to me. I can’t wait to go back soon! I have another blog post coming hopefully within the week, so follow along to see some more of my looks! I’ll also be going on another little trip to Denver for my 21st, so I’m super excited! I’ll be sharing all of that and more later! 😊
