These past two weeks have been relaxing but crazy at the same time. I left for California at 5 am, flew right into LA, spent a day exploring the city and then had dinner followed by a sleepover with my bloggy friend Sammy. (And that was just day one!) Regardless of the little amount of sleep I've gotten, these past few days have been so incredibly memorable, filled with things I will remember forever (as cheesy as it sounds, haha!)
When I received my Jack Rogers as a birthday present last spring, I never expected how much wear I would really get out of them. From a walk on the beach to a fancy dinner, these shoes are perfect for so many occasions. Definitely worth the investment in my book!
Another fun piece I've been wearing a ton lately is my Smart Girls Group spirit jersey! I won it in a raffle at the conference this summer, but SGG didn't start officially selling them until recently. So fun and perfect for lounging around in.
I'm planning on doing a more in depth post on this within the next few weeks, but the Lemonade restaurant in LA was seriously life changing. A giant yellow sign, fresh foods, multiple flavors of lemonade and macarons the size of my hand.... Does it really get any better?!
By far the highlight of the trip was getting to see my BFF Sammy. We've been planning on hanging out with each other for a few months now, and neither of us could believe the day was finally here! There's something about long distance friendships that make you realize how lucky you are to have certain people in your life, and Sammy is no exception! :) Since we are literally the same person, we did all of our favorite things: a delicious dinner at SUR (Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant!), followed by a sleepover and a really fun day of shopping and visiting her favorite spots. One of the best days of my life, for sure! (Stay tuned for a collaboration... it may even include a certain pink wall!)
I'm so blessed to have been able to travel to some of my favorite places these past few days, and am so grateful for all of your sweet comments and emails with recommendations. You guys are seriously the best and make blogging so, so fun!
