Visit Sol Mexican Cocina featuring Baja cuisine inspired good eats, fun and celebrations! I was invited here for a birthday celebration with my friends and I was so happy to discover that they had a separate gluten friendly menu. They also have vegan options. Click here online to view it. When you arrive at the restaurant ask for it because it is separate from the regular menu.
Atmosphere: Get together on the waterfront patio, in the cozy lounge area, open concept kitchen or around the interior fire pit. This is not the place to go for a quiet meal since the atmosphere is lively and loud usually crowded to the max. It is a testament to the delicious food and fun they are known for! Their flagship restaurant is in Newport Beach right on the marina by the boats.
Menu Highlights: Fresh, savory and healthy Coastal Mexican cooking options!
- Giant tortilla chips, warm black beans and salsa are free starters.
- Order from the Guac choices: Naked Guacamole: hass avocado, cilantro & lime with onion, serrano & tomato / Strawberry Fennel Guacamole: naked guacamole with fresh strawberries & fennel, serrano chile, cucumber & toasted pecan / Guacamole SOL: guacamole, mango, tequila, goat cheese, pepitas & cilantro
- Grilled Sweet Corn carved tableside with butter, lime, chiles, cotixa cheese & chipotle drizzle

Dress: Francesca’s Frannie Scarf Print Shift Dress (Sizing starts in XXS)
I love this bold scarf print that is perfect for summer because it is so light and comfortable. Wear this in the daytime with wedge sandals or for a more dressy night out with some strappy heels.
Purse: Francesca’s Teagan Mini Angled Perforated Crossbody.
This purse can be held as a clutch, wristlet or crossbody with the removable chain. The size is not overwhelming and nicely fits my phone, favorite lipstick, cards and keys.
Earrings: Serefina Valencia Fringed Drop Earrings sold by Anthropologie.
These lightweight glittering tassel earrings make a fun summer statement!
My Gluten Free Favorites: Specialty Tacos – Fish Taco Gobernador, Sweet Potato & Black Bean Taco: roasted poblanos & caramelized onions. Burrito in a bowl.

Here in beautiful sunny CA the summer heat has been rapidly rising so I am always looking for something light and breezy to wear. It was so fun to find this cotton lace maxi dress on Francesca’s clearance rack for $14.97! Go to your local Francesca’s to find a cool breezy dress. The brand name is Miami which always run pretty spot on to my size and is petite friendly. This dress is a great to wear to a night out for a dinner celebration without being too dressy. I like how the lining does not go down to the ankles so there is a light transparency from the knees down.
Francesca’s seems to always have a different sale or promotion going on to get a great deal. Right now get extra 25% off clearance items. You can buy one item at full price and get unlimited 50% off all full price items. Expires August 11th.
