          Although this outfit is super basic, I really like it.  It's cute and comfy.  Ever since moving to California, I have been more into t-shirts.  I don't know what's wrong with me.  T-shirts are so boring.  I feel like that laid back California style is rubbing off on me.  I really want to make more of an effort to stop wearing them so much.  I did manage to dress this outfit up a bit with the sandals, necklace, belt, and bag.  I feel like they are what prevents this outfit from being entirely boring.  Also, I've been buying way too much from H&M lately.  I need to shop more at other stores.

New Home Decor: Part 3

9:40:00 AM Andrea Ryan 1 Comments

Plant Pot: Goodwill (from Target originally) & Teapot: Disneyland 
Coasters: Anthropologie (gift) 
Sugar Dish: Anthropologie (gift) 
 Sign: Walmart 
 Spoon Rest: Anthropologie (gift)
 Salt and Petter Shakers: Anthropologie (gift)
 Candle: Gift
 Diamond Planter: T.J. Maxx
Prints and Frames: Ikea
          I haven't shared my new home decor in a while so I decided to do a part 3 to the two other posts I have made.  I've had some of this stuff for a while and other things I got more recently or for our wedding.  I have linked everything that is still available but some items may be in store.  All of the items from Anthropologie were on our wedding registry.  I love everything from Anthropologie and the style fits really well with our apartment decor.  It's one of my favorite stores for sure.  The first plant pot came from Goodwill.  We just stopped by a Goodwill and wanted to see what they had and I only found this for $1.  I got the teapot when we decided to go to Downtown Disney and had to pay $20 for parking.  You could get your parking validated if you bought something so I got this amazing teapot.  I feel like this is one of those things that I will always hold onto.  The wall sign that says "Bloom" is from Walmart.  I got it last spring as a seasonal decor item.  I am planning on swapping it our for something more fall-esque.  The peach candle came from my sister when she came to visit.  I found this cute diamond shaped succulent planter at T.J. Maxx.  I love the way it looks iridescent.  The prints were on sale at Ikea, so I decided to get them.  I forgot how much they were.  The frames are also from Ikea.  I'd say our apartment is fully furnished at this point but I still like to buy new items from time to time.

          I've been wanting to check out Chinatown in L.A. since moving here 1.5 years ago and we finally went today.  We spent a good part of the day exploring.  We started out at the Thien Hau Temple, just because we saw it from a distance and wanted to see what it was.  It's a super pretty building.  I live the dragon carvings on the pillars.  Then we went to get lunch at Ramen Champ.  This was my first time trying ramen (don't ask me how, just never got around to it) and it was so tasty.  I love this place because it is really affordable and has a bunch of vegan options, and a big menu in general.  It had amazing reviews, so that's why we chose it.  After eating we did a little shopping and went over to the central area.  There are so many beautifully colorful buildings.  They are all super intricate with lanterns hanging overhead.  There was just some sort of celebration when we went to there was rainbow confetti (biodegradable) everywhere, which made it even more magical.  Lastly, we stopped by Ju & Wei for rolled ice cream.  I had been wanting to try that too.  It's so fun to eat!  If you go to L.A. you can't miss Chinatown.  
          I decided to wear this floral dress with these bow sandals.  I got both of them on sale at H&M.  Although neither of them fit perfectly, I love how they look.  I just got the sandals a few days ago because I lost a pair of mine at the beach last weekend.  I dropped one at a surf competition and never found it.  I decided to wear my horn necklace with this dress because I think it goes well with the neckline.

Summer Day in San Diego

4:14:00 PM Andrea Ryan 2 Comments

Downtown, near Shoreline Village shopping area
Coronado Beach
La Jolla Cove
Cabrillo National Monument

DRESS: Urban Outfitters (thrifted)  |  SANDALS: Report  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society  |  NECKLACE: Forever 21  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx
          I spent last Saturday in San Diego.  We wanted to go back because there is so much to do, but we only have time to do a few things every time we go.  We went to La Jolla Cove, Seaport Village, Coronado Central Beach, and Cabrillo National Monument.  My favorite spot is La Jolla Cove.  I think it's one of my favorite spots in all of California, maybe even in the country.  It's just such a nice little cove where you can snorkel and check out the sea lions.  There are tons of them.  You would think that with all of the people they would be afraid, but they seem to like the attention, or just ignore them.  The other spots were really nice as well.  We had already been to Cabrillo National Monument.  We when back to try to see the tide pools but it turns out you have to go in the winter to see them.  Have you been to any of these spots?
