California Girl.

September 8, 2015

Summer days have been warm and long with beautiful sunset skies but, I think I’m ready to let that go for some cozy knit sweaters, boots and chilly fall weather. I love the beach year round and it’s one of my favorite places to be but lately I’ve been craving gloomy days at the beach with a cup of coffee, snuggled in a oversized knit as I hear the ocean and feel the breeze.

This past holiday weekend, I woke up extra early to beat the traffic, crowd and sun. I enjoyed a a morning wearing exactly what I imagined fall on the beach should be with a snug cardigan at the beach before the weather got warm. Perfect Saturday morning!

I popped into Nordstrom to get an early fall shopping day with some girlfriends and bought some comfy pieces that I can’t wait to wear all fall season!

What are your cravings for fall season?

FREE PEOPLE ‘windowpane plaid’ cardigan
FREE PEOPLE ‘free falling’ v-neck tee 
GENETIC DENIM ‘zoe’ high rise jean shorts
SUNDAY SOMEWHERE ‘little god’ sunglasses 
CHLOE ‘small faye’ shoulder bag
