Down by the Pier


Color Me Nana Dress- Modcloth, Cargo jacket - Volcom, Sunglasses - 80's Purple, Sandals - Boutique 9, Bag - Hobo International

These pictures seem like they were taken ages ago . . . well, I guess that is because they actually were. Anything over 2 weeks old is ancient in blogger-land. But here they finally are. These were taken that one extremely hot Friday we had in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. I spent the day in Santa Monica and it was basically amazing. I cannot wait for summer so I can have a repeat of what I had this day. Bright bright sun, colorful walks on the pier, little kids playing on the beach . . . makes me feel like I'm 10 years old again. This little girl saw me snapping these shots on the beach and wanted to post with me. Her name was Princess and she was the most adorable little thing ever. Totally melts my heart!

Today is an exciting day for me because I am taking part in a special photo shoot with H&M for their collaboration with Swedish shoe brand Hasbeens. I am still pinching myself over this fact! I cannot wait to tell you more about this!

How exciting to be part of the H&M x Swedish Hasbeens collaboration! You look gorgeous in that dress. It has such a beautiful pattern. And I have the same Volcom jacket; I won it from Natalie. I love it. It has become a closet staple of mine.
