this is f*cking awesome

Excuse my language!
The post title is from the song "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz {who's voice is awesome!}
Listen and watch the video here. And while you're at it watch this one too, here.
 That song was the theme song for this past San Diego trip.
We drove down south with our lovely friend Iliana and the three of us love this song.
We heard it on the drive down, in our hotel room, on the drive up, pretty much every day of the trip.
So ya, we dubbed it the theme song of the trip.

So here are pictures from our trip:

 We stayed at the Bristol in downtown San Diego:

{such a cute hotel!}

We met up with Sosann, Alex, and Nilo:

And had dinner at the Marble Room:
{where we ate some delicious burgers and listened to some live music}

In the morning we went over to Hillcrest:

Had some coffee at Kona Coffee:
{I had the Kona Mocha, which was this white chocolate, Irish cream, cup of yumminess!}

And then had breakfast at Snooze:
{the wait was a bit ridiculous but thankfully the meal and company made up for it!} 

Afterwards we went shopping!
We went to a bunch of vintage, thrift, and book stores!

Here we are getting ready for another night out:

We had dinner at Cafe Lulu's with Iliana's lovely friend Fatana:

{we had a bunch of really yummy drinks, enjoyed a hookah, and had the tastiest dinner!}

 We had so much fun we all met up again the next morning for breakfast at this cute place called the Pannikan:
{great food! great atmosphere! loved it!}

Afterwards we did some more vintage shopping in Encinitas and then slowly made our way home.

About 30 min. into the drive we hit some traffic and decided to exit the freeway and roam about.
This led us to come upon some really fantastic vintage/thrift stores!
Plus we got to enjoy the beautiful view of the coast:

Hey guys!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
We've just come back from San Diego and I'll have more pictures up soon but until then here's a sneak peak of our trip down south:

i wish my name was clementine.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
I hope yours is a fabulous one!
Ours will be filled with football, eating, football, you get it. ;)

Then on Friday we're off to San Diego for a few days.

I've been wearing this vest pretty frequently.
I think one day in the near future I'm going to pair it with something that it won't go with but my love for it will blind me to the mismatch.
Oh well.

Here's arnab with his bat sling shot that he got while we were in Sequoia.
I don't remember what we were doing the day we took these pictures that warranted a sling shot but I'm sure it was either something dire or something very silly.

second verse, same as the first

 I was going through extra pictures of ours that we haven't used and I found a bunch of pictures that show just how obsessed arnab and I are with Alternative Apparel's raglan t-shirts.
These shirts are super soft, very comfortable, and have a relaxed and cool look about them {or at least we hope they do.}
I wear them to work, out to dinner, to run errands, to go shopping, etc.
You can see past posts that had us wearing these shirts here, here, here, and here.
Again. We're obsessed. :)

copy cat

A few days back I totally stole arnab's look from here.
I thought the whole incident was super funny so I had arnab snap a few pictures of me.

inspiration: sweaters!!

This past week the weather has ranged from warm to chilly and by the weekend it's supposed to get wet!
One of my favorite things to wear in colder weather are sweaters.
 Knitwear is just so comfortable and can be stylish and is something you can play around and be creative with.

While at the Topshop and Net-A-Porter websites {I 'window shop' a lot online but I rarely by things, that's good right?} here are some lovely sweaters I spotted:

Have a great Thursday!!
