Casual Day Trippin | Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead is my home away from home.  It’s a picturesque mountain town, nestled high in the San Bernardino Mountains, built around a crystal clear natural lake.  It’s only a 45 minute drive from my house but it feels a world away.  The geography is completely different, largely due to its 5100+ ft elevation.  There are no palm trees in Arrowhead – instead the landscape is speckled with pines, cedar, and dogwood…it doesn’t look like the California you see in pictures!  Some of you might know it from the 1998 Parent Trap remake, as many of the scenes were filmed there.

My brother was recently in town for a visit, so hubby and I decided to treat him to a day in Arrowhead.  They have an incredible Belgian Waffle House, and bro loves his waffles.  Since we do a lot of walking through the village and around the lake, I tend to keep it casual for day trips to Arrowhead.  Even though it’s June, the weather was in the 60’s the day we drove up, so you can see I dressed accordingly.  In the winter they get a lot of snow, and it’s absolutely beautiful!

Just a quick note about the top I’m wearing…I found it when I was shopping Kohl’s for cheap pregnancy clothes.  It’s not a maternity top, but it’s absolutely perfect for my preggo belly!  It’s a longer tunic length with high side slits, which makes it comfy and versatile.  In addition to wearing it long, I can also tie it up in variety of ways (which I’ll demo in a future post).  Plus the material is super soft and it only cost $12!!  I love it so much I bought one in every color.
