Down By The Waterside

In a recent post for Urban Darling I mentioned that I’d been planning a trip to Tulum earlier this year.  Unfortunately, when I found out I was pregnant, the trip was pretty much nixed due to Zika.  Plus we realized we could really stand to save the money.  Although I didn’t get my fabulous tropical vacation, we did spend this past weekend down by the water.  We spent one day exploring San Pedro, LA’s original port city, and another day visiting family in quaint Manhattan Beach.  These pictures were snapped around the harbor in San Pedro.  We stayed at the Double Tree right on the marina…it was very comfortable and picturesque.


I adore this lightweight tropical dress I spotted at H&M.  I sized up from a 2 to a 4 and it will probably fit for the duration of the summer because it’s so loose and breezy.  I styled this look with a vintage kukui nut lei from Hawaii – this necklace is wayyyy special to me because my grandmother got it on a trip to Hawaii back in the 60’s, and a few years ago (knowing how much I loved it) she gifted it to me!  I’m also wearing my favorite gladiator sandals and beloved Prada sunglasses.  After exploring the harbor, we grabbed dinner at this famed Italian restaurant in downtown San Pedro.
