Beach Daze

TGIF! I'm so ready for the weekend! Who's with me? Everyone? Ok, cool! 

So this weekend I am going with one of my sweet girlfriends to the OC! She is from Chi-Town and has never ventured from Los Angeles to my neck of the woods! So I'm taking her down to my home town for some fun in the sun! Here is a little outfit inspiration I've put together for our weekend at the beach! I'm going to be bringing a few of my beach essentials and a good book to read. Relaxing on the beach with a good book and munching on snacks is definitely one of my favorite things to do ever.

While out shooting for this look we found a couple VW buses so of course I had to take a pic in front of one! Also while walking around we found a few plumeria trees...and plumeria's are one of my favorite flowers. So I picked one and put it behind my ear. Plumerias remind me of one of the best vacations I went on in 8th grade to Hawaii with my family. The trees and flowers were everywhere there in April and every time I see or smell them I think of that trip.

So for this look I chose something simple. A lace maxi dress that is breezy during the hot days and comfortably cute. I also brought along my bathing suit and face lotion and regular suntan lotion for suiting my tanning needs (I'm so white! eek!). Hopefully this weekend will be filled with relaxation, swimming, yummy iced cold drinks and some much needed girl time!
