Blouse: thrifted
Shorts: thrifted
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

Southern California may have gorgeous weather for the most part, but it’s actually somewhat rare to have a hot, completely sunny day at the beach. It seems like it’s usually cloudy when Jasen and I go. Today, however, was one of those amazing spring days without a cloud or fog or freezing wind down at Huntington Beach, and Jasen had finished writing several articles (he does freelance writing for a few different publications) and had a whole day we decided to take advantage of this opportunity to visit one of Orange County’s most popular beaches on a Monday.

It was incredible. We found meter parking about as close as it gets to the pier, the beach was almost empty, and we got to spend all afternoon lying peacefully in the sun — wearing high-SPF sunblock, of course.

I found the blouse that I’m wearing at Goodwill, but it’s from Urban Outfitters (Kimchi Blue). The shorts I found at Quality Thrift, and I think they’re pretty old. They have a very faded Woolrich tag. I felt sort of 1940s-ish in this outfit. Since I was going to the beach, I just let my hair do its natural thing. In this photo it kind of looks like I have spikes or horns on my head. Thanks, wind!


  1. Hi! I'm a bit of a 'Lurker' and don't usually comment, but I just wanted to say your hair looks beautiful this way! Of course it's lovely the way you style it usually in your pics, but you should definitely wear it this way more often. All the best.

  2. Yeah. I know back in high school, I used to be way more of an ENFP, but slowly, I've become more J. That letter must be borderline for me though, depending on my mood and whatever else. I still identify strongly with both types.

    I love this outfit! You look like a pin up girl with your high waisted shorts and your tiny waist :) So lovely. I adore blouses that you can just throw on with jeans or shorts. They're so versatile and have so much character :)

  3. That blouse is great, and I agree with the comment that you look like a pin-up girl... extra credit for wearing red lipstick to the beach!

  4. That top is really sweet, the print is really lovely.
    And those shorts are amazing and look great on you, such a tiny waist!

  5. I was just going to say, is that HB? We should do a day trip! I'll foot for gas, my aunt would probably love us and give us food.

    I think the pictures turned out great! I like the glasses the best.

  6. Beach babe! I love the retro sunglasses, they really suit you.
