Beach House











(Vintage blazer, 5 Preview "Naive" tee, Hudson Jeans, Ferragamo flats, BR satchel)

On the warmest day of the week, I took a drive down to Newport beach. It was nice getting out of LA for a bit. The congested freeways and horrific parking really get me sometimes. I love how in the OC the freeways are newly spread open and everything just seems slower, calmer. When I got to the beach, it was surprisingly quiet. Not something I'm used to. Where are the people down there?! Only a few beach bums dared jump into the chilly ocean with their bikinis on. So crazy to even THINK of wearing bikinis in March. Welp, being one that hates getting tan, I trotted around in a cheeky tee by awesome Swedish tee shirt maker 5 Preview . Yes, Evian can ironically be spelled as Naive har har! Pretty much wore my most low-key outfit. I love days wandering about doing absolutely nothing under a blistering sun in just a tee shirt and jeans. I felt totally lazy and sleepy. Great way to clear the mind!

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

Simple and chique, what more do you want. I always love it when a jeans fits perfectly. The t-shirt looks very simple but I love the combination with the blazer. It makes it a little bit more elegeant. The color combination is perfect, the blue and the brown. Oh and those adorable Ferragamo, they never go out of style.

The Fancy Teacup said...

Such a fresh and lovely look--the topography on the cheeky 5 preview tee is clever, adore it! I especially love how your satchel and bow topped flats make a perfect pair.
It's so nice that you got to stroll around the beach doing absolutely nothing; those kind of moments are just pure bliss.

much love.
