Hey, that's where all the kids go. (& a giveaway)

So, this is a glimpse at our wonderful day in San Diego. I hadn't been there in years apart from rushing there and back and never seeing the sites when we had Castledoor shows down there. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we took Birdie with us out of necessity but we just went to all pet friendly places and it ended up being really fun for her! She met lots of new friends and absolutely loved the water and all the new smells! We ate tons of treats, drank tons of coffee, laughed at tons of things, and made a tons of memories.

I decided to give this cute little vintage woven mini purse I wore in these pics away to one of you because all of you are just the best in the west! It fits my mini wallet, mini make-up bag, iPhone, and keys perfectly! You could also use it as a camera case in addition to a mini purse. It could be a present for someone or a present for yourself! :) Just leave a comment below to enter and I'll pick someone a week from now, Wednesday, December 15th. I'm going to try and do a giveaway every week, just because it's so much fun!













My mom's the cutest!

(Sweatshirt- Alternative Apparel, Skirt- H&M, tights- UO, Loafers- Farylrobin, Mini Purse- Vintage)

Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway Kelli and I are doing. Two days left. :)

  5. You and your mama are so cute! I love it! And I bet Birdie had the best time! When I'm in LA next, I think she and my Schnitzel should definitely hang out. He's not the smartest boy in the world, but he's certainly handsome and sweet as can be! I'm sure they'd have a jolly good time hehe <3

    I love your tights and your skirt is heavenly! (I love all those pockets :D) That purse is rather adorable too. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your contest! It'd be a swell birthday treat, I know that for sure :}
