Romp Around

Santa Monica, CA

Who doesn't love a good staycation? Affordable, easy to plan and often spontaneous, these quick getaways have lead to some of my best adventures. And in California, you don't have to drive too far to change up your scenery. Every town, every neighborhood, really, has it's own unique personality and charms. It's one of the many reasons why I love living here.  So while I don't get around to doing them nearly as much as I'd like, I make an effort to force my friends to do them with me at least a couple of times a year.

A few weeks ago, some pals and I rented a bungalow on the beach for the weekend in Santa Monica. We woke up, swam in the ocean and tried out a few restaurants we'd never been to along Ocean Avenue. The place that we stayed at was only minutes from my apartment, but I felt worlds away! Oh how a quick change of scenery can really recharge your soul.

I wore this MakeMeChic romper to dinner and then also as a breezy beach coverup (I packed light!). So versatile and chic, I love the pretty blue pattern and tassels. Undeniably great for summer, the flowy long sleeves also make it a perfect transitional piece for fall!
