Travel with me: Monterey

On our first morning in Monterey, we drove to the waterfront street, Cannery Row. It is a former location of sardine cannery factories and now a tourist attraction. We had a terrible cinnamon roll there but then I saw Pinkberry and it was all good! :)

On Saturday it will be almost a month since I have landed in Chicago. Thankfully I have kept (at least started) a travel diary, writing down all the places we have seen along the way so that now I can relive the moments with you in pictures.

I have been busy over the past week choosing a new design for my blog. I feel that it looks more organized and clearer now. I really hope you like my new & improved Bowsessed :)

Now I’m back with my beloved Bowsessed series, showcasing this week a few summer fashion items in one of my favorite colors: mint. I have put together a few of my recent finds, mostly from the summer sales, that I would bring to a day at the beach or pool.
