Beach Chic

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I have been seeing a lot of blog post revolving around sand and the ocean these days and it has made me long for a beach trip. I am embarrassed to say I do not see the ocean very frequently despite the fact that I only live 10 miles away. I love the beach but I hate the 405 fwy, and unfortunately you have to cross it to get there. However it is in my to-do-list for 2011 to visit the ocean more.  Hopefully this is the first of many beach posts. These photos were taken in Playa Del Rey, which is just a few towns south of Santa Monica. Playa is a great beach because there is rarely a crowd and quite a bit of free parking (at least during the week). I am so exited to finally show off my new white pants too!! This little number rang in just under $55. I would love to hear about your beach adventures, please share!!

@2anchor, I heard about all the snow warnings back east, hopefully you escape them. I remember when I lived in Chicago and how the calendar said it was spring but there was still snow until May. Hopefully Spring will find you soon!

@fashionblvd. Thank you and I will check it out!

@myheartblogged, I spent three years using Lake Michigan as an ocean substitute, the good news is those great lakes are so big you don't really know the difference. Does lake Erie get packed with people in the Summer?

I love the print of your top with the white jeans and the denim jacket. Stylish and relaxed.
