Happy summer, everyone! Hope you’ve all been enjoying the weather where you are. I just returned last night from my vacation in Los Angeles, California, and I didn’t want to waste any time posting something new for you :)
During my one week away, I spent a whole day in Santa Monica. We went shopping along the Third Street Promenade, where I got to experience shopping at a physical Nasty Gal store for the first time, yay! It’s where I picked up these beautiful cat-eye, rose gold sunglasses by Quay Australia.
Quay is known for their bold, elegant cat-eye styles and I had always wanted to own a pair — I’m a sucker for both the cat-eye look and rose gold tones so there was no question I’d make this purchase. Plus, these sunnies will always remind me of my awesome day in Santa Monica.
I was excited to wear my favourite skirt, an asymmetrical draped look that is perfect for the beach. I had seen so many of these skirts on Pinterest a couple summers ago and managed to find a version of it on eBay for $18.99 at the time. The same skirt is now available for $14.99 on eBay.
This grey tank top by Community also makes for great beach wear because — as the Aritzia website describes — it’s “made with 100% linen that’s breathable and has a soft texture, so it’s a cinch to wear.”
As you can see, I had a surprisingly great time at the beach. I had always ruled out any sun, sand, and water from my vacation destinations as I was never a big fan of those kinds of settings. But after dipping my toes in those soothing California waters, I have to say I get it now. Feeling the warm breeze in your hair, and the rush of the waves coming to splash against your legs is so surreal. I felt like I was in Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” music video.
Hope you enjoyed these pics from my trip! Thanks for stopping by and see you very soon with some brand new content.
