I spent the weekend in San Diego and it was so wonderful having full-on family time. I took a mini social media break (which I highly recommend) so I could be fully present. Our weekend consisted of a lot of food and dog time. It was just perfect, so much so that I decided to stay an extra day! I’m leaving after I write this blog post. I wanted to go to the Flower Fields, but we didn’t get a chance. So here’s a photo of my mom and I from last year. It’s such a magical place, definitely somewhere I’d recommend if you’re visiting San Diego!
5 THINGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW
#1 eyelet classic
Eyelet is a classic fabric that you can wear every spring, year after year. And you can’t get more timeless than a white button-down shirt! Combine both and you have a staple that you can wear for years to come. I love pairing my white eyelet shirt with white jeans. But I also wear it with blue denim, pleated skirts and any color shorts.
I made egg bites for my past two brunches and they’ve been a major hit. The funny thing is, they could not be easier to make! I saw this egg bites recipe online and adapted it to make my own versions.
I switch it up with different meats and veggies for the outside layer. And I add different cheeses and spice for the inside layer below the egg. You just bake the egg bites in muffin tins and you have what looks like a gourmet brunch. This weekend I served them with deconstructed avocado toast by the pool.
I’m not the best at following recipes, which is why I don’t post my own too often. But you can always find recipes that inspire my cooking over on my Recipe Ideas board on Pinterest.
#3 slide in
I was always such a heels girl. But this past year has created a love for flats. Now that it’s warming up, I’ve been eyeing different slide sandals. I love the contrast of these shiny black slide with the matte chain. It reminds me of my favorite YSL bag. They’re also super cute in the neutral color.
After living in loungewear sets for what felt like eternity, I can’t wait to create a housedress collection. It’s basically going to become my warm weather version of sweatpants and hoodies. First up? I’m thinking this sleeveless swing dress. It looks so comfy and it’s such a steal! Plus, I’m still not over the tie-dye trend and it has a bunch of color options.
When the wedding of a stunning couple is planned off the coast of Ireland on a remote island that has no cell phone service what can go wrong? Apparently, everything. I thoroughly enjoyed living on the edge of my seat as I read about each wedding guest in this novel, who go from excited to scared as a murder is revealed.
