San Diego

Welcome to See. Wear. Eat! My name’s Katey and I’m a fashion lover, food eater, and globe trotter. What can you expect to see from me? Everything from outfits I’m loving, places I’m going, food I’m eating – and so much more. With no further a due, let’s talk about my recent trip to San Diego!

Originally a Italian fishing neighborhood, Little Italy is now a filled with the best restaurants, craft brew shops, wineries, patio cafés, art galleries, and hotels. This lively neighborhood is home to a dynamic food and drink scene, not to mention it’s the largest “Little Italy” in the United States.


Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve (my favorite place I visited) is a costal state park located outside of the city in La Jolla. Enjoy an array of hiking trails, cliffs, the beach, and breathtaking views. I started my hike up the side of the cliff and ventured through trails off the main path like Discovery Trail, Yucca Point Trail, and Broken Hill Trail. From here I walked down the trail that lead to the beach and enjoyed the walk back to the car with the waves next to me.



Unfortunately I was experiencing the “May Gray”, but Sunset Cliffs was still a truly surreal sight to see – even if there were no sunsets involved. This spot doesn’t have as clear as a path that Torrey Pines does. I ventured from the parking lot on top of the cliff (some people were climbing down the rocks with their surfboards to get to the water) to a long stairway that led you down to the rocks below where the salty waves splashed onto your feet.
