While the rest of the country prepares themselves for fall, snuggling into warm scarves and preparing roaring fires and sipping hot chocolate, California is still holding onto it's last remnants of warm weather and sunshine.
And it couldn't have picked a better time to live up to the stereotype, as Robin had just flown home after living in southern Japan for 2 years. I only had two days with her before she started her cross country trip and I was happy to discover some new spots in sunny San Diego with her.
We began in the middle of the prestigious bankers hill neighborhood, in search of the Spruce street suspension bridge I'd heard rumors of.
The sun warmed our backs as we swayed across, towards the unknown on the other side of the canyon.
This dress is one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I've ever owned!
The inside is lined like traditional Ugg boots are and keep your feet just as comfy, but I'm a much bigger fan of this sleeker, more tailored style than the original puffy boots that tend to be paired with tucked in leggings on late night grocery runs.
Now if only I had a couple million dollars to spare....
But, luckily us girls have great imaginations. In our minds at least we were already little old ladies sipping port in our rocking chairs on the porch and commenting on passerby.
If you're ever in the area, the Spruce street bridge is worth a visit and is free.
If you, like me, feel you deserve the best of desserts after your long walk I'd encourage you to make your way to Pappaleccos for the best affogatos In town.
I hope you enjoyed a little sunshine from out in California, I know I love seeing and hearing about the beautiful autumn eveywhere else!
