Hi there! I’m finally getting around to posting some pictures from a trip to the mountains a couple of weekends back. With all the rain we’ve been getting lately I couldn’t not go (sorry for the double negative) and see the snow. I love that in San Diego we have the beach, mountains, and so many other beautiful places all just a short drive away!
I recently found out about Zella, a Nordstrom brand, which is pretty widely known for being similar to Lululemon at much better prices. A blogger that I love, Jean from Extra Petite, tipped me off to them and I am so glad she did! While she and I have totally different body types, I love her posts and style. Check her out if you get a chance! The Live In Leggings really live up to their name. They are pricier than I usually go for, but I find myself reaching for them constantly! They are most substantial than your typical leggings, so they can be used for workouts if desired.
It was a ton of fun seeing the snow capped mountains up close, but man was it busy up there! People congregated at every little patch of snow we drove by. The snow is something quite special for us So Cal folks! I guess everyone else had the same bright idea we did.
Leo laughed at me for this, but honestly more than anything I was excited to break out my Sorel snow boots! They are about $180 at full price, which is pretty expensive for something I might only use a few times each year, but of course I got a great deal. Plus I justified the purchase by thinking, “well, now I have them if I need them for a spontaneous trip!” Right?Right?! Lol
I didn’t realize quite how bulky my trusty American Eagle parka (old, similar) was until I took a look at these pictures, but it’s lined with faux fur so it’s a little hard not to look a little lumpy I guess. Luckily it has an inner drawstring that allows for a little shape.
It sure did keep me warm and toasty and it’s proved to be a great purchase. I’ve had it for at least 5 years (bought at a super discount, natch) and it never disappoints! Here it is 2 years ago when we went on a ghost tour of San Diego for my bithday, which was soo much fun! That’s my beautiful bestie Tonya with me in the pic, btw 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
