I spent a deliriously happy (girls) weekend in downtown San Diego. My best friend and her boyfriend recently moved to the Little Italy area, a quaint neighborhood filled with Italian eateries and fun boutiques. I've never been much of a city girl, but visiting the big apple last year changed my mind completely. I think I've always been leery of the hustle and bustle of living in a city. Too many people inhabiting a small space, too many loud noises that would undoubtedly fray my nerves. But with that comes excitement, and an energy that pulls me outside my nervous little comfort zone. It's good for me!

Farmer's Market on Saturday, around the corner from her apartment.



Blogger favorites: French macaroons and fresh flowers


San Diego harbor



My BFF. We enjoyed Bloody Marys on Sunday afternoon.



I've been trying to hunt down a pair of Steve Madden bow flip flops, first seen here on Veronika's blog. I tried to find the ones she has, but learned they were sold out everywhere I went.
These are by Michael Kors, and I spotted them at DSW! I suggest checking them out if you can! Pretty similar.


Just a quick post that i wanted to share =)
Happy Tuesday!

  17. Pictures: Yes, they are leather! It feels so nice, especially the bows. Very soft. They were 48 dollars. Kind of pricey, and a bit more than the SM version, but really comfy! I know I'll wear them a lot so i didn't mind the price. Plus, I love Michael Kors =)

    birdie to be: Have fun in SD! I hope the weather is nice, I'm sure it will be!
    PS - cute blogger name =)
