Right back where we started from

Oh, California. How I miss thee. California is perfect. Great weather, delicious food, non-stop fun, pretty people, palm trees (which by the way -- I didn't think were real until last year. Whatever), the ocean, mountains, excellent shopping, and on and on.

I spent the week with the incredible Ashley of Southern {California} Belle. We never stopped moving. She was gracious, kind, and knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. And can we talk about her beautiful dogs and nice husband? Because golly, that girl has the cutest life.

The days totally blurred together, but one afternoon we went to the Grove for some shopping, lunch, and fun with Erica of Sweets & Hearts. We did all sorts of shopping, walked a ton, ate some tasty sandwiches, and took some glam shotzzz! I think this was also the same night we went to a comedy show and saw a bunch of comedians/actors. But let's be real Chris D'Elia was the FUNNIEST.

Oh, and this is seriously one of my favorite outfits EVER. I've been holding onto it for months for the California weather.

  24. Hey, you look seriously hot! (if it's ok to say it!) That's such a glamorous look and you really suit sunglasses! I don't think they go with everyone, but you are rocking them as they say. I think it is great that you get to hang out and get to know other bloggers like that.

    I also did a little melt-squirm in my chair with desire for warmth. When will we get some sun in Britain? *grumble grumble* Currently I can almost feel the heat coming off American blogger's pictures and just want to dive into them and be in California myself. :)
