Last weekend, I went down to San Diego and stayed with my dear friend Jessica for the night! I had definitely been feeling a bit of cabin fever and was excited to have a little getaway. Even though it was a quick visit, we made the most of our time together -- eating and shopping as much as our stomachs and wallets could handle!

Our adventures started as soon as I got there on Saturday around noon. We immediately headed over to Hillcrest for lunch and parked ourselves at Crest Cafe, which was new to both of us. It turned out to be a cute little place with bright decor and absolutely delicious food! Jess ordered an omelet with fruit, and I got a portabello mushroom sandwich. I also had fries for the first time in almost a month, which is a long time for me, ha! So that was a nice treat.

Then it was time to explore the neighborhood's vintage and thrift shops! I got a $14 scarf and a $3 ring at Flashbacks. I also got a really cute cropped, floral-printed denim jacket for $15 at Buffalo Exchange (that was Jessica's find). We browsed through a few more stores, which made us hungry again, so we grabbed froyo at Golden Spoon!

After that, we headed over to the mall in Gaslamp. We stopped in Francesca's Collections, one of our favorite stores! I got chip clips that looked like bears for $4 and a big package of cute straws for $6. I'll be saving those for my next house party. :) We also had to check out Forever 21, of course. I managed to find this Drake shirt for $15 and couldn't help but snatch it up. I can't wait to style it!

Between popping into stores, we snapped photos and grabbed more coffee. Jessica picked up a few goodies throughout the day as well, but I'm sure she'll describe them over at her own blog. Also, I took plenty of pictures of her, but I want to see which ones she likes best before posting. I personally think she looks good in all of them, but I'm super picky about my own photos, so I assume others are too.

At that point we were pooped, so we headed back to her house in Imperial Beach. We stopped at El Tapatio on the way and Jess bought us food to-go so we could enjoy it in her lovely backyard. We ate and talked by the bonfire while enjoying wine and her husband's home-brewed beer. Once the fire burned out, we headed inside and watched some Big Bang Theory which turned out to be cute and funny. I also got lots of cuddle time with her three adorable dogs. It was a chill ending to a wonderful day! I had such an awesome weekend and I look forward to telling you all about day two.

  1. It was such a good time! It's always so fun to explore my city with you! Maybe next time we will get to go to a meetup together if I don't mix the days up again! XOXO- Jess

  2. Shopping and food are like the best combination. My mom and I have been saying we need to go to The Buffalo Exchange, can't wait! Btw, have you been to a Savers? I just found out it's a thrift store and went to one earlier this week. I liked it a lot!

    P.S. Love the outfit! The colored tights are so cute.

  4. Mmmm... that frozen yogurt looks delicious. I just watched the Seinfeld episode where Elaine and Jerry test the new "non-fat" froyo, and have been craving some ever since. I loved following along during your trip via Instagram! Jessica's pups are real cute!
