Peaks & Valleys.

April 8, 2014

Santa Monica, CA.

It’s in the high 80’s-low 90’s today in Southern California and that means: it’s stifling in the valley, hot in Hollywood, and warm enough to head to the beach in a bathing suit without freezing your bones off.  When I first moved to LA, I never quite understood how the weather worked.  I lived in the valley and as an escape, I’d often pack up my things and head from my sunny spot by the pool to the beach- only to find a 15 degree weather drop and a wall of clouds.  That’s why beautifully warm days along the coast (like today) are so wonderful.

I decided to wear this bright floral skirt from Urban Outfitters- perfect for a day in the sun- it embodies everything spring.  I paired it with a lightweight pastel tank from Forever21 and some adorable new strappy sandals from Marshalls/ Steve Madden.  Best part of this spring look? It’s under $100!

Hope you’re enjoying your day and if you’re in LA- hope you’re playing hookie today at the beach like me.
