Last week, I switched up my daily routine and met up with one of my girlfriends for Happy Hour. She is not familiar with the Orange County area so she let me pick out the restaurant and of course I went with one of my “trusty” go-to places. We met at Javier’s Cantina in Crystal Cove, Newport Beach. The reason why I decided on this location is because you can’t go wrong eating here. The atmosphere, décor and beautiful beach view are perfect for anyone who’s looking for a fun place to dine in the OC. Not to mention, many celebrities like to frequent this restaurant as well such as: Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Dennis Rodman, OC Housewives, Jim Rome, etc. – So you know this place is awesome! Ha ha.
Along with my favorite dining spots, I am featuring my easy after-work look. Whenever I have Happy Hour plans, I try to dress a little more business casual and just add some flare to my outfit. I traded out my traditional black slacks and switched to these H&M olive green pants. It added just enough of a laid-back look that I didn’t feel like I was in my work clothes all day long.
What are some pieces you like to wear when going out for Happy Hour with your girlfriends? I would love to hear your ideas!
P.s I’ve also listed some my favorite Happy Hour spots below. The list could go on forever so I tried to keep it on the shorter side.
Hole in the wall restaurant but GREAT food.
Hands down the BEST all you can eat sushi for $30
