Sinking Sailor

ash2

It's kind of odd but I rarely make my way over to the beach.  It's a pretty short drive from home, there are plenty of beaches to choose from, but I'm not much of a beach (or swimsuit) person.  I especially hate sand, but when you have the luxury of a boardwalk it makes enjoying the beach a little easier.  Santa Monica pier is a little "touristy" but when you have tourists with you it's kind of perfect.  There's a ferris wheel, a roller coaster, tons of shops and street performers.  We had the opportunity to enjoy it all and I felt a little nostalgic walking down a pier I frequented as a child.

I know I've been gushing about Jessica of Midwest Muse lately, but I genuinely adore her.  Meeting bloggers in person is always exciting but sometimes you don't really have a connection face to face.  I feel like she was the exact person I always imagined in my head, if that makes any sense!  I've been following her blog as long as I can remember and it truly was a blast being able to spend time with her and her ridiculously funny friend Jess.  My chihuahuas really miss them!

  9. Adorable outfit (I love the pop of yellow from the belt)! And that makes perfect sense about meeting bloggers; Jessica seems like a doll, and I'm glad that this is true of her in person as well :) Beautiful photos at the pier!

  12. I love the dress! And I love the beach, I just never get to go enough! I take it for granted a lot, and realize it...when I went to school at UCI we were like a 15 minute drive from CDM and I hardly went there :( Probably can count how many times in one hand! I miss it, now everything is a 40 minute drive!

  13. I love that you both are wearing cute dresses and tights! Not the "typical" beachy look!

  14. Yeah, the beach is about 45 minutes away from me and I have to say, I hardly ever go! I went all the time as a kid/teenager but not so much anymore. I love pools but the whole sand thing can be pretty annoying & dirty! Haha.

    Anyway, I just adore that dress!

  22. Oh, all the recaps of this trip make me happy! You look great and so does Jessica (though seeing you side by side really brings home the reminder of height differences in the FT girls. Because you only see the one person (usually) in outfit shots, it can be easy to forget!)

  23. Cute outfit doll!! Love your style!!

  24. I've been loving all the meetup posts lately. Getting to know other bloggers online is always fun and ever better when you get to meet them in person!

    Also, I am really loving the pink hair. I know I mentioned this in an earlier comment, but the colour is so perfect for Spring.

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!!

  26. Oh I love your look here, it's the perfect ocean-side outfit (that dress is so lovely)! I wish I lived by a beach! I absolutely love the water and sand haha; I get to go in Nova Scotia but their beaches are sad in comparison to California's!

  27. Your dress is just perfection and looks so cute on you! Love that you meet up with fellow bloggers, I love doing that, too!
    Thanks so much for your lovely comment, it made my day!

    Have a great day,
