This blog post details one of the outfits I wore while on vacation in San Diego this past week-best trip ever! We took these pictures as the sun at the marina was setting and it couldn’t have been more beautiful! I definitely think that travel wise San Diego is one of the easiest cities to get around in (I’ve had some pretty crazy experiences). This was actually my second time in San Diego and the first time I went I honestly did not have a good experience but what brought me back was actually Cafe Gratitude (an amazing vegan restaurant I’ll talk all about in a separate post) and I ended up extending my stay this second time around because I had such a amazing time. I’ll talk about the places where I ate and the locations I explored in a series of blog post in case it helps anyone else plan a trip out there. I definitely think it is a must see location in Southern California. Now on to some outfit details:
My sunglasses are Ray Bans. Similar ones can be found here.
My earrings are New York & Company and I actually got them on sale for $3. New York & Company doesn’t have them anymore but they can be found here at Baublebar-it’s the exact same earring. I am a huge statement earring fan and actually have a hard time staying away from them! I will even buy them over shoes, purses, clothes, etc.
My culotte pants from JCrew can be found here and here. They are $98 online but if you go to an outlet store you can find them for as low as $25. I actually have a really difficult time finding pants my size generally due to my short height (5′ 1”) and it was honestly a miracle I found these ones in San Diego. I usually find pants and dresses my size in the petite section that don’t need to be altered at Banana Republic and JCrew. Don’t let people tell you short people can’t wear culottes, if you love them then they’re for you!
My white T-shirt is from Abercrombie and can be found here (as low as $10). I love to get T-shirts here because they are very sturdy and the material is really soft which is very important to me because I can’t stand to wear itchy or tight materials.
My side purse is Kate Spade. A similar one can be found here and here. Who’s guilty of wanting every Kate Spade purse ever made? ME!
My purple heels are Banana Republic and similar ones can be found here (for only $14) and here. I love to shop their shoes on sale because their size 6 fits like a 5/5.5 which is my size and which unfortunately not many stores carry.
My favorite hat is now on sale here! I searched for this style of hat EVERYWHERE, seriously everywhere so when I found it at Nordstrom Rack and in my favorite color I couldn’t leave it behind. It brings every summer outfit to the next level because it adds an extra flash of style. I was a huge hat fanatic when I was in high school (seriously had every color fedora ever made) and I tried to stay away from them as I got older but I can’t! I just love them so! They make everything better, especially when they’re pink 🙂
I paired this hat with a free people dress and gladiator sandals, as well as a nude Kate Spade purse (which is a major staple in my closet as you may have noticed). The entire outfit was super comfy and airy-perfect for this scorching Vegas heat!

As many of you may know I am obsessed with shopping at Nordstrom Rack. By far it’s my favorite store of all time. I hate to admit it but I shop there almost every weekend! Please don’t tell my future hubby, it may be a deal breaker hahaha. Of the many many many deals I find at Nordstrom Rack this hunter green dress was one. It’s perfect for date night, a cocktail party, or wedding. Even though hunter green is thought of more as a fall color I would definitely wear it even for the summer. I consider it a very elegant color and the open concept of this dress makes it great for summer. Now on to the details:
Dress for Nordstrom Rack. Similar can be found here.
Heels are Prada. Similar Prada heels can be found here and here.
Weather forecast in Las Vegas right now…..approximately 115 degrees Fahrenheit. It is an absolute oven here! All I want to wear are shorts, skirts, and dresses-and even then I’d really just like to jump in a pool. So needless to say, these shorts were so comfy and airy for this weather. I got them at Old Navy a few weeks ago here. My flats are Dolce Gabbana and you can find them here. I actually go them for my birthday in March and I just started wearing them and they happened to match my shorts perfectly! I love it when I’ve had something for months or even years and I can match it perfectly with items already in my closet by chance.
My belt is Banana Republic and you can find a similar one here. I love how this whole look came together, especially that I was able to pair a statement piece such as this off the shoulder shirt. You can find this Alpha & Omega shirt here.
My earrings can be found at H&M here. So, I absolutely love love love this style of earring. I have every color H&M has made so far-white, black, navy, blue, gold. It is a perfect statement earring for summer!
