Checked In: Gingham Dress + Sandals + Cross Body

Hi there! How was your three day weekend? (If you didn't get one, I apologize for my insensitivity and rubbing it in. I've definitely had my share of jobs where I had to work holidays, so I know the envy/pain is real.)

Matt and I spent the weekend exploring our city. Isn't that just the best part of moving to a new place? Finding new-to-you hidden gems? We checked out Shelter Island (not to be confused with Shutter Island...) and Old Town San Diego, both of which were perfect for leisurely walkabouts in the sun. We also went to the beach and posted up on some lounge chairs. It was my favorite type of weekend: extra long, full of new adventures, and a whole bunch of tasty food by the ocean. You just can't beat that if you ask me.

Now that it's the "unofficial" start to summer are you hanging out by the pool nonstop? That's another one of my favorite things about this move to Southern California: we can finally enjoy the great outdoors during summertime again -- which is the very best part of June - August, of course! Our past four summers were spent in the Arizona desert, where it is muuuch too hot to spend even one minute any real amount of time outside. (If you've never experienced a Phoenix summer, it is 100+ degrees every. single. day. from June - September. Don't let anyone flat out lie to you tell you any differently.)
