Birthday Vibes in San Diego

I'm back to reality after spending a few days in San Diego, CA for my birthday. San Diego is just a short drive away and a great getaway spot.  I love driving down to SD and enjoying the city for a few days. We didn't have a lot of time to get away so San Diego was the perfect option for my birthday. We stayed at one of my new favorite hotels, Bahia Resort on Mission Bay.  San Diego has so many great neighborhoods its difficult to choose where to stay. A couple years ago I attended a conference at the Bahia Resort and fell in love. When my man said "Let's go to San Diego for your birthday" I knew exactly where I wanted to stay. The Bahia Resort, its a beautiful resort on Mission Bay in San Diego. You feel like you are on tropical location being on the peninsula with a private beach and lush greenery all around. It's a great resort with tons of amenities like a free boat ride around the bay with full bar and DJ on the weekends! The Bahia is a great place to stay if you visit San Diego, this is not sponsored post either. We paid our own way as usual, but we do love this hotel and recommend it highly. Just check out pictures below for taste, all pics were taken on the hotel property.  The man got a new camera too (Panasonic Lumix G7) so we had to take it out for a spin.

I actually bought this dress in San Diego while shopping, and wasn't even planning on taking any outfit pictures.  However since the hotel and weather were so great we decided on impromptu photo shoot. I had seen this dress a few weeks ago at H & M and liked it, but didn't think it would fit me since its not from the plus collection. The dress is now on sale for only $10, I saw it was quite flowy and roomy so tried it on and it fit! This is why I say ALL the time to look every where and try clothes on, you never know when you will find a gem. Being plus size doesn't mean you can only shop plus size stores, like I said in my post about shopping non-plus size retailers. The dress is a size 12, but because of the shape and style of it fits me just fine! I loved the dress, it's so comfy, fun and flirty.  I don't wear too many dresses and hardly every wear this color, but I loved it! Sometimes you have to go outside your own comfort zone to experience new things.  Overall I had a great birthday in San Diego. We tried new restaurants and I also tried new styles with this dress. This was a great birthday and looking forward to great new year of life!
