My first time being a tourist in San Diego

Last week I went to San Diego for vacation, and it was my first time there as a tourist!
Why? Because I was living in SD for 2 years when I first came to the USA. At that time, I was only 16 years old and I was all by myself. The first 2 months were particularly difficult for me, not only because I was away from Hong Kong, but also because of trying to adapt to a new language.

My English was fine but it was definitely not how it is now. If you are 16 and still living with your family, please cherish what you have because life is not as easy when you are by yourself, especially when you are only 16. 

Here is the outfit that I wore for the first day :) It took 6 hours to fly from New York to San Diego, so I wanted to stay comfy when I was on the plane. You can click here to see what I wore at the airport.
After I got to the hotel, I decided to swap to my heels in order to make the look more classy ;)

I was staying at the Marriott Marquis & Marina Hotel and it was such a great place for a little R&R.

It is just a simple midi dress with striped patterns, but the hat just completed my look <3 Sometimes, I also wear a hat when my hair is out of control, what about you guys?

For the coming posts, I will be showing you guys where I visited, and what I ate when I was in San Diego. The weather in SD is always beautiful, this is the only thing that didn't change after I left ;)
Stay tuned for more inspiration and thank you so much for reading everyone!
