Get ready for my California re-cap, Part 1!

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Encinitas, CA with my boyfriend and his family to go to his brother’s wedding.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous.

Day 1:

Whenever I get the chance to fly, I always want to be comfortable, but stylish.  I see no reason why someone would need to wear sweats or pajamas to be comfortable on a plane.  My solution is always a jersey dress, tights, comfortable shoes and a shawl/scarf/wrap that I can use to keep warm if the flight is chilly.  I didn’t get a shot of my exact flying outfit, but I did get a photo of a variation I wore later that day, when we got dinner at Juanita’s Tacos in Encinitas (super yummy fish tacos, by the way)

Day 2:

For Day 2 of our trip, there’s was lots of free time until the reception dinner that night.  We started off the day by getting breakfast and coffee at Pannikin.  If you are ever in Southern California, you should check this place out.  You can tell it’s where all the local hipsters go.  Amazing coffee, delicious breakfast, and fun surroundings.

Later I took some pictures around the Casitas where we stayed.  They consisted of two beautiful houses, with enough room to sleep five couples and three kids.  There was a courtyard and gardens weaving in between the houses and around them.  SO amazing.

For lunch, we walked down to the Coast Highway and ate at this amazing Mexican restaurant, La Especial Norte. I had the best chicken soup ever.  The seasoning was amazing, and it had cilantro, avocado, and rice.  Super awesome.

Then we walked down to Moonlight beach and I took plenty of cheesy tourist photos.

And no, I didn’t go surfing during the trip.  I have to say that in that aspect I’m a spoiled Floridian – the waters way too cold in Cali.  I did walk along the beach though, and I adored it.  It’s so amazing to see a beach that isn’t flat.  Gorgeous.

Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!
