After Balboa I went to Fashion Island in Newport Beach which is an (mostly) outdoor mall
It is an older mall, which is obvious by the awesome old school architecture!
There is one part called the atrium shops which is indoor and this is the ceiling
My big purchses for the day were a pair of Nike Flip Flops on sale at Nordstroms (which I wear every day!!) and an octopus from Build-A-Bear which took me about 30 m inutes to find an outfit for before finally settling on just a blue top that looked like the ocean!!
before leaving I had to check out this awesome view from the top of the outdoor escalator!
I am glad that I had a chance to go to Newport Beach and Fashion Island again on this trip :)
