From Coast to Coast







(By Corpus sweater and skirt, Posso x Volcom swimsuit top, Sienna Ray handbag (special code to shop 25% off entire purchase: "SiennaRaySummer"), 80%20 shoes)

I am enjoying being home on the west coast way too much right now! I love NY but you can beat the weather here. It's brilliant right now and all I want to do is be outdoors by the water. Surprising I know, considering I'm terribly pale and look like I've lived in a twilight setting or something compared to everyone else on the beach with their bronzed bods and sprayed-on tans! So yeah, there's me. I've got my pink striped sweater SUN PROTECTION SUN PROTECTION over my favorite little Posso x Volcom bikini top. It's got a retro feel to it and comes with the cutest super high waisted bottom (not pictured hehe). It totally reminds me of something my mom used to wear here in Santa Monica when she was just a hot young babe! This sunny, clear day left me sooo lazeballs that I nearly fell asleep on the grass along Ocean Ave. It felt pretty good.

Great outfit with the sweater. I don't think people really understand how important it is to have sun protection. Tans aren't healthy!! :)

Totally coveting that swimsuit this instant! And I think your beautiful fair skin beats any of the tanned bodies out there! Sun protection is hot in my book.

I have to agree with you! I'm an East Coast girl by heart, but I love the west coast way too much. The weather and beaches are amazing :) This has to be my favorite outfit by you. The stripped flowy top is very summery!

Wish I could live there now! Philly's nearest body of water is the Delaware River (unless you count the Schyukill as water) and it's not quite blue like that. More so of brown/black. Eeeck!

That lip colour suits you very much. x

Ella said...

too cute! i love this outfit so much, especially when worn without the top over it. the swimsuit top and long skirt balance each other out, so it's showing a perfect amount (and not too much) of skin. the accessories compliment the outfit perfectly as well!

Lies said...

Quite a delightful outfit. You always nail it stylewise for me personally!

Marloes. said...

I love your swimsuit top. It looks perfect on you.
