So far, Southern California has been an absolute BLAST! I’m loving the people, food, fashion, and sub-cultures like crazy, and it honestly reminds me a lot of Miami, so I feel right at home. I snagged these sandals and sunnies today at the local TJ Maxx (I know, I can’t help myself!) and sat down with my hubs to enjoy a Mexican popsicle or, as I like to call them, Mexipops!
I know this outfit is quite similar to my last post, but what can I say – I’ve seriously been digging stripes lately and can’t resist a good festival short! I mixed things up by switching out my headscarf for a felt hat in a nice color and swapped my t-strap sandals for some super comfy slides.

So it’s official – we’re residents of Southern California! We are absolutely loving it so far, especially since it shares way more similiarites with Florida than Raleigh did. The timing was absolutely perfect because the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing is taking place and we have been able to catch some of the heats!!! I have been waiting for the right time to pick Sugar & Shine back up, and it’s finally here. This year has been quite rough so far, but things are definitely looking up and I’m excited for the months to come! Here are some of the highlights from our first few days here:

Prepping for our trip to San Diego has given me summer fever, and I just can’t wait to escape the frosty Raleigh weather! This week’s #WIWW is absolutely California-inspired, with everything from 70s sandals to high waisted shorts and a little exotic bling. To me, nothing says California more than a brightly colored crop top, and this intricately decorated tote would be perfect for traveling or even just for a day at the beach. As much as I want to shop for new things pre-trip, I’m stoked to save some money and pick up a few things while I’m out there. Nothing beats some California shopping, right?!
