Today was the first day that I ventured outside since coming down with a horrendous cold/ flu hybrid of sorts. Since it was such a nice day (80 degrees what, what!) Grant and I decided to head seaside and walk around Balboa which is a small island off of Newport Beach seemingly solely populated by dogs and people over 55 years of age wearing Chicos and Cold Water Creek gear, if that paints a picture for you.
I've noticed that I've been dressing more tomboy lately. I think this happens every Fall and Winter. As the temps drop, the pants go on. Speaking of pants going on, I've noticed that a lot of fashion bloggers that I read literally never wear pants. Ever. It's all dresses and skirts which is cool, don't get me wrong since I, too, love a good dress BUT I also loves me a good pair of pants! Maybe it's a California thing? ~California Casual~?
Anyway, here are a few more shots that I took today...
The great banana stand rivalry of Balboa Island! A point of pride regarding where I live (since a lot of people bash on Orange County) is the fact that Arrested Development was set in Orange County, Newport Beach to be exact. While the Bluth Banana Stand is pure fiction it is definitely based on these real banana stands which are pretty much next to each other. I think Sugar & Spice is the OG stand, though. Sorry Dad's!
