70s

I always love a basic that works with literally everything, so that you can get more bang for your buck. This cropped sweater I featured a couple of posts ago has been that item for me, particularly during this transitional Californian weather--where it's too cold to wear just shorts and a tee, but a little too warm for anything cozy. In this outfit I've paired the sweater with some printed wide-leg pants for an outfit perfect for weather in the 70s, and that kind of looks like it belongs in the 70s (get my title? hehehe).

We went to Windansea in downtown La Jolla to shoot these photos, and they came out amazingly thanks to her eggcellent photography skills.

c o f f e e + b l u e w a t e r + w i n d & s e a

Ello all~

Here's a little compilation of what I've been up to so far this April (I know it's only the 4th but a lot has been going on already~)

I tried out a new coffee place, Coffee and Tea Collective, in El Cajon, you can check out my roommate's review on it here. As for my opinion on it, I loved the atmosphere and the minimalist decor that was going on. I ordered a latte (originally wanted it with almond milk but the guy swore their lattes were way better with whole milk so I jumped the gun and went for it and nearly threw up... i don't like milk guys. I was a fool) which was pretty basic and the waffle, which was far from basic (seriously so good). C&T is definitely a place for more hard-core coffee drinkers, not people like me who like sweet lattes and wimpy coffee--aka coffee with a whole lotta milk and sugar.

I was watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives aka Triple D the other day and saw that Guy was about to introduce a San Diego restaurant, so I stayed up past my bed time to watch and boy am I glad that I did. Guy did not steer me wrong. Natalie and I checked out Blue Water Market Seafood Grill whatever whatever--it has the longest name. And let me just say, their food is sexy. 

Three words people: crab. artichoke. dip. 
and here are a few more words: IN A SOURDOUGH BREAD BOWL. 
Ahi Poke
 Tell me this isn't sexy. 

Afterwards we stopped at a place for lattes and gelato. It was a quaint little authentic Italian shop in downtown SD.

My friend Eugenia is a super-uber-duper talented photographer, check out her blog HERE, and asked me to do a shoot with her--she's adding to her portfolio while I get some quality blog photos hehe. So we went to her favorite beach in SD, Wind n' Sea, and took a plethora of piccies (to be revealed in the very near future).
