Alli Travels: San Diego

Happy Tuesday All! A couple weeks ago I was in San Diego with my boyfriend. It was the first time I had visited that city, and I loved it. I could totally live there. The weather is typically nice and the views are beautiful, as you will see in my photos.

When I travel I like to dress comfortable. I love to wear maxi dresses because they are so easy. The one I have on is from last season, but I found some that I plan to add to my closet (here, here, and this one here). I also like jeans when I travel (the ones I have on below can be found here),  a cute pair of sandals (here and here), a good pair of sunnies (I like these here),  and a large tote to carry everything (my favorite is here). You can shop the rest of my looks below.

While in San Diego we visited the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and Museum (website here). If you visit San Diego I definitely suggest you take a half a day and go on a tour, it is worth. Very historic and will make you appreciate the Navy even more. Check out some pictures from that tour below. Hope you enjoy!

Alli Travels: Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is surreal. If you have never been, you should definitely add it to you bucket list. Since my boyfriend and I were traveling back from California (those pictures coming soon), He surprised me with a stop at the Grand Canyon on my birthday. I was super excited because I had never been.

You honestly need to first just take in the vast landscape. It is totally unreal and like nothing you have ever seen before. You need a whole day, really a weekend, to see at least 1/4 of what the park has to offer. There are many walking and hiking trails, but make sure you read up on the level of difficulty of each before you start out. There are some that take hours, like the whole day to hike there and back. There are also many trails that are for more experienced hikers.

The Grand Canyon Park is like a community within its self. It has everything you need. From a grocery store, a bank, coffee shop, places to eat, and even a bar to have drinks. You can stay in the park in the cabins, hotels, or bring your own RV. It is a great vacation spot for a family or you and your significant other. Check out my pictures below.
Make sure you come wearing activewear because there is a lot of walking, hiking, and physical activity. Some of my favorite activewear are these gym shoes here,  sports bra here and here, activewear pants here and here, and pullover here. I also love a good pair of shorts (here), and a tank (here and here) to workout or hike in. I always make sure I have my Fitbit (favorite one here). Shop all my favorite activewear below. Hope you enjoy!

Alli Travels: Coachella

Life is always an adventure. While in the Palm Desert my boyfriend and I took a few days and drove to San Diego and LA. Well since Siri said that there would be traffic the way we planned to go, she rerouted us (as she usually doe). She took us on some back roads and we were all kinds of confused and wondering where we were. 

I am so glad that she did because we would not have gotten to see this beautiful view at Coachella Valley Vista Point.  Has this ever happened to you? Driving in the middle of nowhere and then something awesome happens? If you are ever in the Palm Desert it is worth the drive up to see. This instance reminded me that in life you have to sometimes go through the curvy back roads to get to something beautiful or to get to where you are suppose to be. Life Lessons!!

Anyway for a road trip outfit I like to be what I call the 3 C’s: casual, cute and comfy. This bodycon dress (similar here and here) with some Sperry’s (here and here) is my idea of comfortable. I paired them with my favorite sunnies (here, similar here) and leopard clutch (here). Finished it off with black dangle earrings (here), and a little arm candy (watch here, bracelet here, Fitbit here). Shop the rest of my look below. Hope you enjoy!

Weekend in the Desert

This past weekend I flew out to the Palm Desert to meet my boyfriend at the HITS Desert Circuit Horse Show. He is the National Sales Manager for Equine Motorcoach (website here). If you have horses you really should check out the motorcoach. The views in the Palm Desert are spectacular, as you can see from the pictures.

It gets pretty hot here in the desert so I made sure I packed a lot of dresses. This one I have on is a favorite. A Lilly Pulitzer from last year. I have linked new similar Lilly’s here and here. I accessorized it with my Kendra Scott earrings, found here, my Louis Vuitton tote (here), and Tory Burch sandals (similar here and here). I have linked my outfit details below.

If you have never been to a horse show you should check one out. It is very interesting. I did not know too much about horses, unless they were running at the Kentucky Derby (being that I am from Kentucky) until I started attending these shows. There are many different disciplines and I am learning about many of them slowly. 
Hope you enjoy!
