LEFT MY HEART IN SANTA MONICA


Top - vintage, Shorts - Free People, Shoes - Converse, Bag - Velvetine, Sunglasses - Forever 21

Spent the first day of the year with my wonderful friends in Santa Monica, my former California stomping ground. We woke up sleepy headed after a night celebrating on New Year's Eve with friends and champagne in West LA. I felt like I was back in college and it was great. The weather yesterday was so amazing that I felt the need to bust out the shorts bare legged. I know that once I get back to Philadelphia I won't be able to do so for probably another 4 months. I can't think of a better way to have spent the the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012. With friends, a beach view, and warm Cali sunshine. I will be jumping on a plane later today to head back to Philadelphia. I will have my family there to send me off. Even though I'm going to miss my parents and my friends back in Cali, I can't wait to get back to life in Philadelphia. My parting from California is going to be bittersweet to the core, but I am so thankful that my home on the west coast always welcomes me back with open arms. I feel very lucky indeed.

Love your blouse and great spirit on these photos!
It's always hard to "leave" friends and family behind, but then again it's great to know that you've made home and friends somewhere else too :)
