VENICE BABY


Cargo Jacket - White +Warren, Top - vintage, Shorts - Need Supply, Shoes - Via Spiga, Bag - Hobo International, Sunglasses - Forever 21

I still have so many pictures from my holiday back in Cali (it's kind of crazy), but I am slowly making my way through them for you guys (sorry, life is pretty busy). The one thing I was looking forward to the most about going back to Cali was getting back on my bike and riding it on the boardwalk. My sister and I took our bikes out for a ride from Santa Monica to Venice a few times. Cruising around the beach use to be our weekend norm. There is seriously no better feeling than being on a bike, going as fast or as slow as you want, having no real particular place to go, and just be totally content with the sun, ocean view, and limitless miles of boardwalk in front of you. Meditative and seriously the best work out you can get. I made sure to get on my bike as much as I could in Cali. Ever since I moved to Philly, I haven't biked anywhere. It was just walking and the subway for me, which is funny since Philly is such a bike-oriented city. But I plan on getting one come springtime so I can bring my Cali groove to my new east coast home. Even though the thought of bike riding in Philly traffic scares the heck out of me, I'll try my hand at it. Then I'll just have to find a cute helmet to go with it. And look at me with my tights on. Transitioning from the cold Philly weather to a summer-like environment still couldn't make me take my tights off. The east coast changes things about you for sure.

Yeah, I moved from Cali to PA too and the weather was the hardest part. It's so easy to be part of the outdoors on the west coast, while its much easier to snuggle with piles of blankets here haha.

I really like riding a bike too, I lived for a year in Barcelona and went everywhere by bike and loved but now that I'm in my home town again it's not really the best option since it's ups and downs all the way but I really miss it. :)
Loved the red shorts!
Really liked your blog and am now following it.

oh sorting through pictures is always the worst- don't worry!! Looks like a great vacation, these pictures remind me of the beach areas of Cali I've been to & I'd def recommend a helmet- you can certainly find at least semi-cute ones & after a few awful crashes (fortunately un-car related) I've realized it's really not worth not wearing one. But ok, end of lecture hehe. hope you have a great weekend!
