Finally, a beach day! My first one of the year actually. Kind of ironic because I literally live 15 minutes away from the beach but I guess when you're that close, you kind of almost forget that it's there. That is until you are bored one Saturday afternoon and it is a nice sunny day out. So my roommate and I threw on our favorite summer dresses and headed over to Santa Monica for some fun in the sun.



Currently my favorite pins: Wishcandy coconut oil pin, Zero Gravity Palm tree pin, Emo Night hot dog pin

I've always wanted a crochet dress but never found the perfect one. They were always too sheer, or too lumpy, or too big, or too small.. that is until I laid my eyes on this one from Zara. Knit to perfection and fits like a glove. I fell in love with it the moment I spotted it from across the store. The beach is the perfect setting for a little crochet mini dress. So summery, so light, and so airy. It's been a long time since I fell this hard for a clothing item.
