Lately on Instagram: San Diego

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few of these photos as I was posting them, but for those of you who don't, I wanted to let you see my trip to San Diego last Thurs-Sun! I was there visiting my sister for her 24th birthday - she's been living in the Ocean Beach neighborhood for about 6 months now and I had yet to visit, so this was the perfect time. :) It was nice to get some sun and relax for a few days.

I was so proud of myself for packing light and only bringing carry-on luggage!

my rental cottage had a beautiful patio complete with gorgeous landscaping and a hot tub.

my first visit to the beach, which was only 3 blocks from my cottage, was perfect because the beach was so empty and serene!

seeing so many palm trees was a welcome change...

relaxing in the hot tub after a day at the beach...

one day when my sister was working, she let me borrow her car and drive up to La Jolla which was definitely my favorite part of the trip! I loved the adorable city center and the coves - it was so picturesque.

I had lunch by myself at a restaurant with a patio overlooking the beach...what could be better?

in front of the La Jolla scenery...

my sister and I saw these adorable dogs while eating breakfast...they were the cutest, oddest pair of best friends I've ever seen!

even though I missed Phoebe, there was no shortage of cats for me...this stray stayed on my patio during my entire stay at the cottage and even sat in my lap while I read!

sisters having fun!

the gorgeous view and sunset from my sister's roof deck...

stay tuned for a summery outfit post next week shot in SD!
