Weekend Wear

June 26, 2015


One: Sweatshirt  /  Shorts  /  Bag  /  Sneakers  /  Sunglasses

Two: Bag  /  Hat  / Tank  /  Sandals  /  Sunglasses  /  Skirt

Three: Dress  /  Heels  /  Clutch  /  Earrings  /  Necklace

 The temps here in San Diego have just begun to climb, putting me in full-on summer mode!  I’ve added a few new pieces to my wardrobe this season, but have also taken a serious look at my closet to see what I can mix and match. A new sweatshirt wasn’t on my list of ‘must haves,’ however this one is pretty freakin’ cute, right?! I love a laid-back look made ultra-comfortable with a pair of Converse sneakers. One item I’m seriously eyeing is this long, budget-friendly skirt. Old Navy has put out some great pieces this season and I always stock up on their super-soft vintage tees and workout basics. Of course, their skirts and dresses are not to be overlooked! And where do I start with those heels in look three?! I love the versatile color and it’s a reasonable price point for a high-heeled strappy sandal.

San Diego Father’s Day Restaurants with Open Table

June 17, 2015

Lots to celebrate this weekend! Not only is it Father’s Day but it’s my niece’s birthday. A special dinner is certainly in order! I’ve used Open Table for years to make my reservations and this weekend will be no exception. Generally I make reservations by visiting the restaurant’s website and then clicking on their open table reservation button, but did you know that Open Table’s site has specific search features? You can browse restaurants by neighborhood, specific dietary needs, and occasion! These are my top San Diego restaurants, which are sure to spoil dad!

The Baked Bear

June 12, 2015

imageRecently, I was asked to visit The Baked Bear and sample their delicious selection of ice cream sandwiches. I love the concept…you choose your cookies among 8-9 flavors, then your ice cream, and then watch as they make it into a ridiculously tasty sandwich. They’ll even warm up the cookies to make them slightly more delectable. I mixed and matched a handful of favorites…snickerdoodle cookies with funfetti ice cream, chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter fudge ice cream (my favorite), and red velvet cookies with cookies and cream ice cream. And since I didn’t take advantage of ‘National Donut Day,’ I made up for it by sandwiching strawberry ice cream between two glazed-drizzled donuts (shown above). It was the ultimate sugar rush! The Baked Bear currently has three San Diego locations and a fourth and fifth one opening soon. If you’re a local and haven’t already tried it, I highly suggest you do!
