Holiday Time in Cali

December 16, 2017

This past Thanksgiving I got to spend some time in Long Beach, California and it was absolutely incredible! I was shocked at how amazing the weather was, it was warm during the day and cool at night (but never too hot!).

Thanks so much to Josh Owens for these amazing photos! Check out his Instagram and website.


I was excited because I went from wearing sweaters back to wearing light and flowy clothes. These pants are one of my favorite pieces from Lulus.com. They're super long which is amazing for a 5'11" girl like me!



We got to explore Long Beach a ton, which was so fun! Check out my favorite 5 places in long beach and read on to find out more about my favorite outfit of the trip.

1. Portfolio Coffee

If you ever go to long beach and need a cosy coffee-house, this is the one for you! They have incredible food and my favorite coffee. Pretty much every morning would start off with walking over there for a blended vanilla late!

2. Bo-Beau Kitchen + Roof Tap

I am obsessed with rooftops, so when we heard about this bar I was so excited! They have a great cocktail menu and I tried one of their special drinks which had lavender in it (definitely a new and interesting taste).

3. Panama Joes

The food and drinks here were amazing! The tropical atmosphere is also pretty cool.

4. Legends Restaurant & Sports Bar

Legends was pretty nice because they had the whole front of the bar open so you could sit inside and feel a cool breeze. They had some really interesting beers and I got to try a raspberry cider for the first time! This is definitely a good place to relax with friends and catch a game on the many TVs. Side note: Get the spinach and artichoke dip!

5. Buffalo Exchange

I've never been a huge thrift store shopper, but this one was amazing! They have some really nice brands for super cheep prices. I got a WildFox shirt for $10 and a denim Calvin Klein dress for $20! It was definitely worth searching around here for a bit.
