Home sweet home

Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I've been traveling for the past 2 weeks and it's been hectic to say the least. I was finally able to go back home to Cali for a bit and I fell in love all over again. I hadn't been back home in a year (woo hoo to living in Texas for a year already!) and it was so good to see friends and family. The trip was jam packed with going to familiar places and going to places I don't normally travel, like LA. This outfit was what I wore to LA for the day to go shopping with my parents. We hit up this amazing sample sale where I got some amazing purchases, but more on that later. The first day was spent driving up to LA then walking to Little Tokyo for dinner. Take that hotel concierge that said it was too far a walk! My parents and I wandered for what seemed like ages trying to all agree on a restaurant but we finally ended up at the most amazing sushi place. The fist was so fresh, it was incredible! My favorite part was the bell at each table to ring for service...needless to say I got a little "ringer" happy. That night we decided to stay at our hotel and have a few drinks, which led to a few more, which led to dancing. Those pictures I'm keeping under wraps or possibly for potential blackmail purposes for my dad later! Overall the trip to LA was so fun and I can't wait to go back for another sample sale!

Side note: I know I just wore this dress recently, but I seriously love it! It's super soft and flowy which is perfect for the weather in the OC. It's also perfect for snapping a few pics in my backyard before heading up to LA!

Thanks to my mom for taking these great pictures
