NEWport Beach

As you may know, one of my favorite things is discovering new places. Sort of on accident, Jake and I stumbled upon a new outdoor shopping area in Newport Beach (it's still under construction) that I am totally obsessed with. Let me backup: In January, I had a bad eye infection and needed to take a break from wearing my contacts. I decided to get new glasses from Warby Parker. I did a home try on but you might know how difficult those are -- it is so hard to tell what will look good in person and I ended up not liking any of the ones that I had tried on.

Then I remembered there are a few b&m Warby Parker locations in Socal. I noticed they had a location in Orange County which meant that we didn't have to drive to L.A. Cue our first trip to Lido Marina Village.

It started out as a surprisingly chilly and rainy day. I bundled up in this super cozy Tobi coat and then the sun peaked out. We got coffee from a little coffee shop called Honor Coffee and got lost in a few shops for a couple hours.

We've been back three times in the last few months, so you can tell how much we truly love it. It's still under construction, so it's not completely filled up yet, but I can't wait to see what other stores pop up here.  Some of my faves so far: aesop, Warby Parker, Clare V, Faherty (Jake's fave).

Denim | Levis 711
Sandals | Old Navy (sold out), similar

I ended up picking out Warby Parker | Keene in Beach Glass in case you were wondering.
