We made it safe and sound to LAX from the east coast on Wednesday night! This is my first time traveling to California, and I am already in love.
Have you been following along on Instagram and Instagram stories?! I’ve been keeping it up to date with everything we are doing, eating, and seeing this week. With a crazy family of five, you never know what we’ll get ourselves into!
I wore this J.Crew Factory maxi dress and Wilson Leather crossbody our first day. Maxi dresses are such an easy throw and go piece, so it was perfect for a morning of shopping and trying on clothes. I’ve also been wearing this panama hat non-stop. I can’t stand getting sun on my face, so it’s such a fun way to ensure I’m protected.
We are staying at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach for the next couple nights before heading to Manhattan Beach. Across the street from our hotel is Fashion Island. HELLO! Every fashion bloggers dream!
And of course, I had to go into my favorite store! I was introduced to LOFT at the beginning of the summer and O.M.G it is so dangerous. When we came across the store on Fashion Island, we had to go check it out!
I tried on the Lou & Grey jogger sweatpants on the right, and couldn’t leave the store without them. They are SO comfortable! They’re the perfect sweatpants for travel, classes, and more.
For dinner, we walked a short distance from our hotel to True Food. Our driver from LAX highly recommended it, so we figured it was worth trying. We were glad we did because the food was INCREDIBLE! If you are ever in the Newport Beach area or find one of their other locations, you need to stop for a bite to eat.
Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon
Grass-Fed Steak Tacos
My freshman year roommate, Claire, went to her True Food Kitchen in Houston and had a similar experience. She ordered the teriyaki quinoa bowl and agreed the food was amazing!!
Update: We’re leaving Orange County today and heading to Manhattan beach! Follow along on Instagram for live updates!
