in the dead middle of winter, january usually being our coldest month, it’s been 85 all weekend and we’ve all been at the beach. it was beautiful and warm and sunny but still had that wintery feel where the sun is down low in the sky and not as bright as normal. a perfect day to wear a long dress that’s easily convertible for all seasons. i got this dress at free people on sale for 39 dollars down from 200. thats the kind of bargain i can’t pass up. its so comfy i’ve been wearing it everyday. a few people even asked me if it was missoni… i laughed. worn with a faux fur vest i got at zara in spain, a thrifted fringe purse find, my 10 dollar awesome concho belt from the rose bowl flea market, the turquoise bracelet that i love is luckyflirts by my friend franchesa check her stuff out here.

on another note tomorrow is my birthday :) well it’s kind of bittersweet. another year closer to me having to actually grow up. sigh.
