So lesson learned today from a photography perspective. Taking a 50 mm lens, by yourself to the beach when the tide is ridiculously high is not a wise idea. Despite my investment in Lightroom, my skill set is not quite where it needs to be to make the necessary adjustments. Alas, I still felt like a mermaid today in this ridiculously amazing Wildfox top. I would have voted for recreating that infamous scene from the Little Mermaid, when she’s perched on top of the rock but all the rocks at the beach but due to extreme tide levels all rocks were just a little too dangerous for my taste to try and accomplish that look on my own.
But seriously, if you ever thought it would be fun to rock an outfit inspired by the Little Mermaid, I’m here to confirm that suspicion. While everyone is all hot and bothered about the “Free The Nipple” movement, this girl over here feels perfectly liberated rocking her sea shells. Princess Perfect I might add. And Princess Ariel to be specific. It doesn’t take much to be inspired by my favorite Disney Princess. After all, pink and purple are her primary colors and also just so happen to be my favorite. Another winning outfit decision no thanks to Wildfox!
I couldn’t help but hum to myself The Tide Is High while doing this blog shoot today. Another beautiful day at Crystal Cove.
Thingamabobs? I’ve got twenty. But who cares? I want mooore.

Tis the season for changes, and for whatever reason I was recently compelled to invest in a pair of camo print jeans. I had a choice to invest in a pair of light washed or darker washed and I opted for the latter. Although they don’t photograph all that well I assure they look amazing in person! Dark camo, wax coated denim, yes please! And there are so many different ways to wear them! I can’t wait to give them an urban look by pairing them with some combat boots and a black beanie. Today I opted for a more military chic inspired look by pairing them with my favorite pair of wedged ankle booties, and my military green French Connection coat, perfect for a crisp So Cal Fall sunset (which was 80 degrees in case you were wondering.) I wouldn’t even know how to spend a Winter with snow.
They say you learn something new every day…today I learned you CAN hike in wedges. Who knew?!
Funny story, since I work out in the desert now I actually did experience a snowy afternoon. I thought it was rain. Never in my life have I seen it snow. And the few times I have ventured up to Big Bear to enjoy some fresh white snow I was never properly prepared. I showed up ready to snowboard in jeans once. My best friend perhaps prepared for this moment reminded me snow is water and quickly showed me he brought me an extra pair of snow board pants. Water proof! Who knew! The good news is I have no talent nor desire to ever pursue snowboarding as a recreational activity so no loss there.
I’ll trade a snowy day for a nice sunny one on the beach any day!
Nothing better then feeling sand beneath your toes.
