I Wish They All Could Be California Girls

Red Sweater - Moda International via Goodwill
White Hidden Mickey Scarf - Disneyland, gift from nephew
Gray Pleated Sweater Dress - Old Navy
Black Patent Belt - Banana Republic
Black Suede Flats - Kimchi Blue, Urban Outfitters

So, true story. I was actually wearing tights this morning when I left my house. My awesome black, gray and red argyle tights, to be exact. At 7 am I felt like it was cold enough for tights, but by noon I was over it. Also, this is my sweater dress that I love. I've had it for years and it's really a winter staple for me. Pretty soon it will be too warm to wear it, so I better enjoy it while it lasts.
The day ended up being so nice weather-wise, that I even ended up taking my nephew and cousin for a bike ride. The beach is about 10 blocks away (downhill), and I was way out of shape, but it was still super fun. Of course, a bike ride meant a change to a more California-casual outfit.
White V-neck T-shirt - Nollie, PacSun
Denim Boyfriend Shorts - Levi's ($6!)
Checkerboard Slip-Ons - Vans, Urban Outfitters

Obviously I didn't put too much thought into this ensemble. This is the first time I wore these shorts. I bought them a few months ago, as an investment for spring, and they are extra comfy! Although, I don't exactly think they are the most flattering on me, but when have I ever let that stop me? Regardless, riding down the esplanade with the sea breeze in my hair, I felt like a quintessential beach girl.
Anyway, this post has already gone on for way to long, so I will leave you all with this terribly awkward picture of me and my beloved beach cruiser. Note my new bicycle basket I just bought at Target. And yes, that is a Mickey Mouse water bottle in my basket. What can I say? I'm a Disney freak.


  1. Such a great sweater dress, I'm pretty sure that the tights worked very well with the outfit. The whole day sounded like a fun one and I envy the weather, it's still pretty cold where I am even though the sun is out :(

  2. We've had lots of tights mornings and bare legs afternoons lately, love your beach photos and bike shots. Look how cute your little vans are!

  3. I'm pretty sure no shoes on my gigantic size 10 feet have ever been described as "cute" or "little," so thanks a bunch!
