Taste of DTLB


♫ Lizzy Mercier Descloux- No Golden Throat ♫ 


Wearing:

Heavenly Couture linen jacket
H&M leggings and tee
Old Navy black tote bag
Superga shoes


Taste of Downtown Long Beach is one of my favorite events in the city. It pretty much is a public event held around the downtown area, and this time it was held at one of my favorite spots in the city which is the East Village Arts District. This is my go-to hang out area where all my favorite cafes, restaurants, shops, and fave record store is.

 Taste of DTLB has gotten pretty popular over the years and I love how all the restaurants/cafes within the area set up booths outside and you can pretty much walk around and taste all the different food and drinks from these restaurants. It was great because time other participating businesses set up booths too, so besides food they were also selling t-shirts, tote bags, chocolate, vintage accessories, and a little bit of everything else...so it kinda felt like a farmer's market, if you will haha.  It's great because although I haven't tried all the spots in the city this event gives people the opportunity to try a bit of everything from all the surrounding restaurants and local businesses in the neighborhood.

Spring Equinox


♫ Palmas- Flowers ♫

ZARA dress
Madewell sandals
Thrifted straw bag
UO sunnies 
Anneise rope necklace


Hey guys!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Yay can you guys believe it's officially spring! :)
I took a mini road trip this past weekend with my sister and nephew to the California Poppy Reserve in Antelope Valley to check out the "super bloom"...thanks to the rain! 

I had to check it out for myself this year since it's been on my bucket list for a while but the drought last year didn't really motivate me to go...anyways I'm so glad we made it. The golden poppies were scattered all over the hills,  and there's still so much blooming left which goes on until late March to early April and I'm tempted to go back there or Lake Elsinore!

From a distance, the hills covered with golden poppies resembled a watercolor masterpiece and the hazy sky just made it so much better! It was super windy with a good 80 degrees in the valley but the warm breeze and the sun peeking through the clouds made it feel like the perfect spring day! It felt so refreshing venturing on the trails of the poppy reserve, although I didn't wear appropriate hiking gear that still didn't stop me from walking a few miles and taking in the amazing view, all while being surrounded by California poppies!

If you guys get a chance go check out the super bloom before the season is over, it's well worth it! :)

Farmer's Market II


♫ Kurt Vile- Breathin Out ♫ 


Wearing:

Cotton On tee
Uniqlo jeans
Thrifted straw bag
Soludos espadrilles
UO sunnies 


Hey guys!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend :)
This past Wednesday I ended up going to the farmer's market by the Marine Stadium...again! haha I just couldn't get enough so I had to stop by. This time I stayed a bit longer and indulged in so much fruit and a refreshing virgin mint mojito ;)  
I love the good vibes and the live music at this farmer's market which is one of my go-to's whenever I'm in the area. The weather has been so perfect lately, it's been feeling like summer so I went for one of my fave casual looks plus you can never go wrong with comfy jeans, a basic tee,  espadrilles, sunnies, and a straw bag for spring/summer!

March Lately


♫ POWERS- Sunshine ♫ 


Hey lovelies!

Here are a couple random pictures taken over these last couple of days. Everything from "Babychella" (yes it's exactly what you think it is... Coachella .... but for babies...music, fun, crying, chaos... haha I went with my one-year-old nephew, Lukas, he loved it!). 
Catching up with friends, brunch, matcha runs, outfit shots, and chasing sunsets you know just a little bit in between. Although I've been busy I always try to snap pictures whenever I can, I love looking back at memories and of course sharing them with you all :)

(Wearing: Vintage blouse, Crossroads culottes, Sam Edelman sandals, Cotton On straw hat, Tobi silk scarf,  Zaful bag)

My nephew having way too much fun at Babychella with the bubble machine! (Don't you just love his overalls and birk-sock combo) haha  :P


One of my fave matcha drinks from Milk Box

Recent fave drink from 7 Leaves Cafe it's called: Mint Sereno iced coffee.. surprisingly good. It tastes almost like Philz Coffee's version but more subtle and soooo refreshing!

Brunch and catching up with the girls and Lukas :)

Yummy brunch from Bakers and Baristas
