Recap of Our California Trip

Hi everyone! I'm just returning from a long weekend in California and am trying to get back into the groove of things! My hubs surprised me with a trip out there for Christmas to visit his sister and our cutie patootie nephew! It was so great to see them. We got to have a nice balance of family time and a little alone time. 


My travel outfit for the trip out:

Sweater: Target (similar one here) // Jeans: American Eagle (similar) // Sneakers: Nike // Faux Fur Vest: Target (similar) // Jacket: Barbour 


Out first stop as soon as we landed was In-N-Out




We took our nephew out for the day on Saturday and headed straight for Coronado! It's this beautiful island right off San Diego that Kyle and I love to go to whenever we can. It has the cutest shops and restaurants. Perfect for lazy strolls and people watching. The Hotel del Coronado (pictured above) is also a favorite spot of ours to go to. It's situated right on the beach and is just so beautiful to go wander through! It's definitely on our must-stay list! Maybe during our next trip out west :) 



Outfit details for chasing our nephew around -- sneakers were key!

Top: Gap  // Jeans: Target (similar, non-ripped here)// Sneakers: Nike // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Light Pink Pom Pom (similar) and Hot Pink Pom Pom (on sale!) 



While out in San Diego, we stayed two nights at the amazing Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines (pictured above). I still can't get over this amazing view of the golf course and ocean! 

 We woke up early on Sunday to go for a hike along the Broken Hills South Trail within the Torrey Pines State National Park. Seriously you guys, it was beyond gorgeous! The trail goes all the way down the cliffs and right to the ocean. While it was quite the workout on the way back up, it was so worth the views! 








Casual outfit for dinner one evening! 

Outfit Details
Top: Old Navy (no longer available) // Jeans: Target // Sandals: Jack Rogers 


The view from our room was pretty spectacular! 


We watched the most beautiful sunset from Torrey Pines' Gliderport


Button-up: J. Crew // Jeans: J Brand Jeans 


We checked out of the beautiful Hilton La Jolla on Monday morning and made our way up the coast towards LA! 

Outfit Details:

Sweater: Gap (super old) // Jeans: Target (I swear I wore other pants during this trip) // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Sunnies: Ray-Ban 





I couldn't resist these beach ball cement blocks! 



We found the cutest little cove while driving through Laguna Beach! I could've plopped down and sat there all day! 



Obviously had to make a pit stop at Lemonade :) 


The prettiest sunset while driving through Huntington Beach! 



We ate at Fred's Mexican Cafe in Huntington Beach and I couldn't resist taking a few snaps of the Ladies Bathroom. I mean seriously, have you ever seen a pink & gold bathroom like this? Let alone in a Mexican restaurant? I died. 



Every stall had a different saying painted on the walls and a mirror on the back of the door! Selfie opportunity everywhere haha



I was so sad to leave sunny California on Tuesday, but work was calling! I traveled in a super comfy outfit which consisted of two new items from Lululemon (this pull over (on sale!! not available online) and these pants (seriously one of the best purchases I've ever made). 


Thanks for stopping by!

Xo, MacKenzie
