About this look...
When I moved over 600 miles closer to the Pacific ocean three years ago, I imagined I would be spending many weekends sitting in on sun-warmed sand while watching the waves. As it turns out, I haven't taken advantage of my proximity to the beach nearly as often as I should. I'll blame it on 22 nausea-inducing miles of winding roads through the Santa Cruz mountains.
So, when my roommate invited me along on one of her regular beach excursions, I decided it was high time that I dip my toes into the chilly northern California waves.

Squint really hard into the distance; you can almost see Monterey!
As usual, I put way too much thought into what to wear to the beach. It was going to be relatively warm, but these beaches often have chill-inducing breezes. My usual getting-dressed exercise of putting on an outfit and exchanging one item at a time until I'm satisfied resulted in an outfit similar to one I wore in LA a few weeks back.
It was perfect for splashing in the water, sitting on the warm sand, and daydreaming while watching the waves crash on the shore!
