One of the best parts of the holiday season is shopping for my loved ones and enjoying all the festivity that Newport Beach has to offer!  The other weekend I started off my shopping spree with the best creamy hot latte from Honor Coffee at Lido Marina Village!  With my tasty drink in my hand, I began looking for presents for some of my friends and a new dress for a Christmas party coming up!



My favorite clothing store in the village is Bailey 44, which has timeless pieces that are perfect for any occasion.  I found so many dresses that would transition seamlessly from day to night, which is perfect when I’m too busy to pick out a new outfit for a date night after work!



Another favorite shop of mine is Planet Blue where I always find the cutest accessories to get my friends for Christmas.  I love the dainty necklaces and earrings that they have in the boutique!


My favorite home store in Lido is Serena & Lily, I love their fresh California style.  The store feels light and breezy, perfect for any coastal home or relaxed vibe.  I absolutely adore their pillows, which are perfectly designed to mix and match with a variety of color, texture and size.


Another favorite place of mine for shopping is Fashion Island, an outside mall with views of the ocean and lots of boutiques.  I love that there are large department stores such as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s and also small designer shops like Kate Spade, Joie, Vince and Alice + Olivia.

Every time I go to Fashion Island I always make a stop at Anthropologie.   They have everything from Amo denim and suede purses to imported bedding and dresser handles.  They also sell Capri Blue candles, which is my favorite candle, I light them all over my house and they have the most amazing scent!
