The Balboa Fun Zone in Newport is such a cool little spot. It has that old school carnival feel with the multi-colored ferris wheel and open-walled arcade. Then you look around and realize the gorgeous setting, on the peninsula in Newport Beach, and the charming ferry that shuttles people back and forth to Balboa Island. My parents still live in Newport Beach so it makes it easy to drive the one hour from Los Angeles on the reg.
I'm a big fan of solid-colored basics because I feel like they give you a lot of room to accessorize with shoes, bags, jewelry, scarves, sexy men, etc. I wore these Torrid jeans while shooting product for their website one day and went home and ordered them immediately because they had fit so well. They are the "curvy" style so they sit nicely above my hips, meaning that they not only stay up without constant pulling, but they also don't cut me off in unflattering places like many jeans can. Oh, and as I've said before, I have no intention of ever photoshopping my body smoother, thinner, or smaller... so if you can't get down with my back roll then please get down somewhere else.
When I bought this white leotard from ASOS online (one of my first purchases from them), I had no idea how much I'd wear it. I think leotards are incredibly underrated and I find myself wearing them frequently. Because I wear high waisted skirts and pants often, it is the perfect top as it is form-fitting and stays put. I also love the low "V" back with the little ruching detail. Those little details get me excited every time! So does tequila.
