(bag Rebecca Minkoff, dress H&M;, sunglasses Gucci, shoes Urban Outfitters, bathing suit Vix)



I really spend quite a lot of time in Venice. I feel like the vibe, the people, the lifestyle is just more “me” than Hollywood is. Eventually plan on moving out closer to the beach but thats still a work in progress.

I decided that this dress, which I wore here, also doubles as a great beach cover up because it’s so sheer. (Proof that I do wear things more than once!) When I find things I really like I actually wear them over and over I just don’t keep posting about it. :) The weather has been so wonderful I’ve been trying to spend as many days out by the beach as I can before summer is over. It’s so sad to think its already September tomorrow. Time is flying.

Also went to my favorite restaurant in all of Los Angeles, Gjelina. It’s on Abbot Kinney and I highly suggest it! If you’re looking for a fun place to have a drink I suggest The Whaler. It’s right on the sand and you can sit upstairs and outside and watch the sunset.

Hope everyone is having a great week! XO

    GREAT beachy look. I especially love that sheer, Grecian style dress over your swimsuit. So, so pretty. I love these photos too. I'm originally from Southern California, Huntington Beach to be specific, and I really, really miss the Orange County atmosphere. Venice and Santa Monica were always some of my favorite places to visit too! Thank you for the little trip down memory lane! It should tide me over until I can make a real trip down there again, which is long over-due! Beautiful outfit and beautiful photos, as always!

    I just wanted to ask: how do you stay in such a good shape? you do a lot of sports I guess? and when yes, which one do you do?

  32. JeezyBelle says:

    simply beautiful! <3

  33. I have the same question than Julia: do you do any sport to be so healthy? It would be great if it is the case you make the same kind of post that for your hair! ;)

    this outfit is original and pure, it's so different than jeans shorts and tank top for the beach!!! as always, I like your work!
