OC Girls Find An Antique Paradise

The Orange Circle has never been a must go "destination" for me, but while spending as much time as I can with my best friend before she leaves to dance in NYC, we decided to make a trip there.  You're probably thinking the girl is from Orange County and doesn't go to the Orange Circle? 
I was pleasantly surprised at all of the amazing shops and cafes they had to offer and with a small boutique at ever corner there was always a place to go! We stopped to have lunch at Cafe Lucca, where we shared a delicious spinach salad...mmm. 
But my favorite was all of the antique, vintage and thrift shops! I was in heaven wandering from store to store where I shopped for old vintage clothes and cool antique furniture.  
Something else extremely cool about this little place was the cupcake shop! Everyone loves cupcakes right? Well, the Orange Circle is home to The Perfect Circle Cupcakery...and the coolest part is they are frequent winners on Food Networks show Cupcake Wars!! 

Antiques all over the place!

Outfit Info:
Shorts: Vintage
Shirt & Bando: Nordstrom & Handmade
Bag: Nordstrom
Shoes: Steve Madden
Sunglasses: anchorboutique on Etsy

Hope you enjoyed the pictures(:

I was in the Orange Circle once, many, many years ago and I have very fond memories. It looks like you had a wonderful day for your trip, the weather looks beautiful (but I guess it must be most of the time!) and you look so cute in your denim shorts. Your hair is incredible!

I love antique shopping too. There's something so rustic and meaningful in buying something that's outlived so much.

Looks like you two had a wonderful time :)
