Down on the West Coast

Sometimes it’s nice to change your scenery and escape from your day-to-day routine. To do just this (+ relax), my family and I took a li’l trip down to Newport Beach. We got extremely lucky: The temperature was a sunny 80 degrees. It was perfect ocean weather. We also got a chance to spend some time on Balboa Island and the gorgeous Crystal Cove Island. The whole weekend had happy, beachy vibes. 🙂

Scenes from the weekend include crystal-clear waters, fun on the ferris wheel and munching on balboa bars (ice cream covered in chocolate covered in sprinkles—so good).

What I Wore:
I decided to keep things cool and casual with distressed denim, a relaxed green tank and a lightweight kimono. I added a bit of a boho feel to my look with this heavy silver belt. At first I was intimidated by the thought of styling such an intricate belt, but I found that pairing it with simple and loose pieces works pretty well.

There was lots and lots of walking involved, so I played it safe with some New Balances.


Because there’s already so much detail in the belt, I went real easy on jewelry.

 The sunset was too gorgeous not to include. 🙂

    I was wondering how I apply to be a part of the BP. Fashion Board? I can’t find the application.
