Totally Beachin'

Good morning y'all! It's a chilly one here in SoCal (aka low 60s) and I'm loving every second of it. Can't wait to throw on a cozy sweater and brave the day with some strong coffee in hand! I've been so excited to share this look because it was my first time shooting on a west coast beach. I'm always amazed at how beautiful LA county is and how lucky I am to live here for the moment.

It's only Tuesday, so we can still talk weekend. My boyfriend visited me from Indiana for the FIRST time since I've moved here! We hadn't seen each other since JuneNeedless to say I was as giddy as a little girl in an American Girl store. Long distance is so so hard, but it makes your time together even more special (maybe I'll do a post on this soon!). We squeezed in some fun adventure time, but definitely made sure to kick it by the pool all day and watch cheesy TV shows. 

With the SoCal lifestyle on my mind I have really been feeling easy-going, beachy styles. I adore this maxi skirt as a statement piece and it is so easy to work with. Unfortunately this one from Free People is sold out, but really simple to recreate with some of my favorite maxi's below! I love the contrast of stark white with all the buzz going on in the skirt. My little number on top is cross-fire cami from FP,  it is my go-to layering piece under big sweaters or tucked into jeans. And it's only $30!!

I've always been a gold jewelry kinda girl, although silver strikes my fancy on occasion. I just love the warm tones in gold and how it nearly glows. This amazing horn cuff is by Anita K Jewelry. Anita's jewelry is the perfect mix of bohemian and minimal - you definitely want to check her site out!
