There is hardly a lack of shopping destinations in Orange County, but no one is more excited than I am for another retail establishment to pop up and sell me all kinds of beautiful things! Pacific City in Huntington Beach faces the water on PCH and will be home to many of my favorite eateries such as Lemonade and shops such as H&M. Only a few of the businesses were open so far, but rumor has it that there will be a hoopla of dining, shopping, and entertainment to come! My boyfriend lives in downtown HB and discovered that the sneak preview opening of Pacific City was this past weekend, so obviously I dragged him there and we both had a lovely time! The outdoor center is full of murals and backdrops that encompass the Surf City’s atmosphere; so lively and colorful!
Even at the beach this weekend, it was quite nippy outside! The weather has officially dropped below 70 degrees. It’s time for lightweight jackets for those chilly Sunday afternoons. I frequently have a mental complex against wearing a jacket, even when it’s actually cold out. Will it match my outfit? Is the proportion right? What if I get a hot flash? However, my army green cargo jacket by Leith From Nordstrom literally goes with everything. Well, maybe excluding a sparkly cocktail dress, but everything else, I swear. The color of the jacket has become a neutral in my wardrobe. I was feeling very Gap inspired on my day off, so I decided to wear my cream chunky knit sweater and my bluest denim skinny jeans. Because I was heading straight to dinner on Main Street, I wore my tan leather peep-toe booties that have the most comfortable chunky heel.

Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
A sneak preview was just what I needed to hold me over until the Pacific City center is officially open! However, in life, we don’t always get a preview of things we are waiting for. Life may seem like a waiting game, but to God, it’s all perfect timing! Sometimes we are waiting for an answered prayer, or a sign, or simply waiting in line, but there is a reason for God’s timing, even if it is simply to teach us patience. We just need to ask God for the peace to wait as long as He needs us to!
Have a blessed week!
