This week, I started a new adventure at Rebecca Taylor at Fashion Island! It was a successful one, I might add. I still feel uncomfortable and awkward, but that’s all a part of change. I think something great will come of this! A little perk of the job is getting an allowance to spend on pretty clothes to wear to work. So here’s a little peak of my favorite outfit thus far compliments of Rebecca Taylor. So excited for what’s to come!

These silk draw-string pants are amazingly comfortable and versatile. Definitely will be wearing these to death! I’ve become obsessed with them. And I’m so excited to have rediscovered the Tiffany & Co. initial necklace my sister got for me for one of my birthdays. Always been one of my favorites and now that I can really only sport dainty little things to work, it’s perfect for the job.

Dining With Dre: Lobsta Truck

I’ve been wanting to incorporate more lifestyle pieces into my blog for some time, so I’m very excited to start this five-week excursion of new lifestyle pieces I’m calling: Dining With Dre. I’ll be trying a new restaurant each week and posting an outfit that goes along with the restaurant theme. So here goes! First stop, Lobsta Truck stopped in Huntington Beach, California.

I noticed that there are food trucks lined up at a nearby Total Wine and Sports Chalet parking lot every Thursday and have always been interested in trying one of them, specifically the Lobsta Truck. I’ve heard its signature entree, the Lobsta Rolls are delicious. I did a little research beforehand and saw that they were going to be at the food truck party today making it a perfect opportunity to check it out.

A “Lobsta Roll” with fresh Maine lobster buttered on top of a toasted roll. Price: $13.

Before the truck opened to a readily-formed line of people, I was able to sneak in a couple questions with the manager of the truck, Michael Easterby.

“We’re the first truck to open on the west coast that serves east coast-style sandwiches. Most commonly the lobster and crab rolls,” Easterby said. “We fly in everything from the east coast. The lobster comes from Maine. We pick it up every day at LAX.”

I tried the Lobsta Roll with butter and it did not disappoint. The lobster tasted fresh and the butter was just the right amount, generously lathered across all pieces of lobster on the roll. The bread, while seemingly the least interesting part of the Lobsta Roll, still had so much flavor to it. I think the bread was toasted with butter too, and who doesn’t love butter?

Lobsta Truck menu.

Lobsta Truck’s most popular item on the menu is the Lobsta Roll and it’s offered with butter or with mayonnaise. Lobster and mayo–a weird combination, but apparently those east coasters like it because Easterby said that’s the main difference between the west and east coasts. West coast tends to go for the buttered lobster and the east coast goes for the mayo-ed lobster.

Lobsta Truck’s menu is simple and easy to navigate. It features the popular Lobsta Roll and Crab Roll, but another popular entree is the Lobsta Bisque, a creamy concoction with a subtle lobster undertone. Check out Lobsta Truck’s website for its location schedule, menus and photos.

Knowing that the Lobsta Truck is all seafood, it inspired me to dress a little more nautically than usual, but casual since it was just a little food truck in a parking lot. Just got these Steve Madden sandals for such a steal. Excited to get good use out of them.

Happy Hump Day surprise! I’m back!  It has been way too long (over six months) and I am so excited to start back up again after many requests!  Not that I’m any less busy now than I was back in August, but I am definitely going to try to post at least once a week to get back into the groove of things.  Be sure to keep checking back as I promise I’ll be posting more routinely.

Hope you like the first outfit I’ve shot for the blog because I love it!  Tying a flannel around your waist makes any outfit more wearable and adds just the right amount of spunk I need!  This red TopShop flannel has become one of my favorite items and has been on repeat ever since I bought it.
