Clogging Old Town

(me in Old Town holding a couple bags of super fresh saltwater mmm mmm)

I spent this past weekend down in the heart of San Diego and it refreshed my memory as to why I love that place. So many flashbacks from when my husband and I first started dating over 8 years ago. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make this San Diego week on my blog, with a little bit of info on the different neighborhoods of SD(and some outfits of course, this blog has after all evolved into some sort of style journal too).

Starting out the day - amazingly bright-eyed and bushy tailed!

Breakfast burrito time at your standard "fill in the blank" - Berto's (i.e. Alberto's, Filiberto's, etc). If you live in So. Cal you know what I'm talking about. :)

First neighborhood here is Old Town. Per the State Park website (here), "Old Town recreates life in the Mexican and early American periods of 1821 to 1872." Basically it's a small neighborhood with some good San Diego style Mexican food, colorful pottery, and a little history. Oh yes, and my favorite of all: an old-fashioned candy store where you can find the best and freshest salt water taffy around. Now that's what I'm talking about.

Love the colorful tiles. Everything around here has a wonderful little pop of color.

Honestly, I probably couldn't spend ALL day in Old Town, because it really isn't that large at all, but it's a nice little stop if you're going to or from downtown San Diego.

outfit credit (head-to-toe):
Panama hat - unknown (This is one of those random street vendor purchases that I made awhile back and never made note of the name. All I remember is that the stand had hats and baskets made from all natural fibers.)
Sunglasses - Versace
Jumper - Xhilaration
Belt - Betsey Johnson
Vintage Clutch - a treasured piece I inherited from my momma
Jewelry - Vintage
Shoes - Michael Kors
