I’ve worn a lot of pants in my life. From sequins to fringe, bell bottoms to boyfriends, and leather to custom painted (these really exist – TWO pairs), I’ve tried just about every style. However, this new trend is by far my favorite. Not only do these pants have the holy grail of all clothing items – pockets (isn’t it the absolute worst when pants psych you out with the itlaysflatterbecauseitdoesnthavearealpocket thing?), they have everything else you could ever want. A wild print, plus eye-catching neons, and a lightweight fabric so moveable that I may just wear them daily. And to bed. And back to work again. No shame.

To top it off? A STRETCHY WAISTBAND! 

If you are a donut-loving, pizza-eating, cookies-n-cream craving gal like me, you’ll appreciate a pair of pants that are not just stylish, but can be worn on the most delicious of Thanksgiving Days. After my healthy eating kick (no, I’m not the resolution type – but the holidays are too busy to take proper care of myself), I’m already looking forward to that glorious day when I can pig out. Until then, you’ll be seeing me pretend to be sporty in these fancy joggers and sweating like Richard Simmons in the gym downstairs! But most definitely not both at once. That just wouldn’t be right!

Before the wedding on Friday, we spent the morning strolling around Orange Avenue, which is down the street from Hotel Del Coronado. It was a beautiful day, weaving in and out of the quaint shops lining the street. My mom and I walked into a jewelry store and this was the conversation which ensued:

Store owner: Are you in the parade?

Me: Um, what?

Store owner: The parade. For Homecoming.

Me: Uh… no? What, who’s homecoming?

Store owner: Are you in a pageant? Your hair is fixed up so pretty.

Me: (HA! I totally thought I was being punked at this point) No, I’m not in a pageant today. What parade?

Store owner: For the high school. 

Yep. Still being mistaken for a sixteen-year-old at twenty-four. I hope this isn’t a phase which goes away when I hit thirty! Also, the sock bun has apparently not taken off yet in Southern California. It was nearly eighty degrees, so I was thankful to have packed some comfortable, light-weight pieces to wander around in!

As my dad was snapping a quick pic, I totally got photo bombed. Anyone know this crazy college girl in the background?!

Where’s Waldo?

The loveliest day on Orange Street.
