On the first 80-degree day of Spring, We jumped on the opportunity to go to the beach. We chose to visit Hammond’s Beach in Montecito, where one needs to wander along a beautiful, overgrown green path to reach the quiet shoreline. The day was beautiful and the sunset coloring the clouds was magical.
MJ: It was such a beautiful day that I decided it was the perfect excuse to wear my new “little black bikini” Bandeau from Victoria Secret. I love these mix and match style bikini pieces from VS, and I try and add a new color to my overwhelming large bikin collection each season. As for the Pants…a new steal from one of my favorite little State street shops: The Closet
…Hunter green Rachel Pally Harem Pants. Amazingly comfortable (which is to be expected from anything Rachel Pally of course) and surprisingly versatile.
The straw fedora hat is from Urban Outfitters, great for summer (or spring in Santa Barbara’s case). Also the perfect accessory when my hair isn’t looking it’s best.
The white cover up is a fantastic find from another one of my favorite State street stores Dear Diary. I love this store because they provide tons of label free tunic style tops in every color imaginable. This white cover up/jacket/oversized shrug is light enough to keep you cool on a hot day while providing a perfect little number to throw over your swimsuit.
I love this Hippy Flower Pendant, purchased a few years ago as part of a halloween costume, and making it’s long awaited debut as an everyday accessory
The earrings are my own creation, some of the beads in these earrings are actually purchased from other etsy sellers. To see more of my creations visit the Bohemian Bombshell
shop on Etsy
EZ: I worship the day that warm weather arrives by forgoing tights and pants altogether. Pants are sometimes a necessity, but I must admit that I prefer to wear dresses and skirts – at least temporarily before the next storm arrives. I embrace Fall and Winter’s layers, but as soon as I can escape the claustrophobia of a coat-over-hoody-over-dress-over-another dress-over-knit tights-topped-with-a-big-scarf ensemble and embrace simplicity in clothing I feel more relaxed.
The sheerness of this bright green dress indicates that it was probably meant to be a swimsuit cover-up, but I wear it as a day dress. I bought it in a rush on St. Patrick’s Day at a vintage store a few years ago because I desperately needed something green, and it has become one of my favorites only after I rediscovered it in my closet recently. I love the bell sleeves, deep v in the back, and how light it feels while wearing it.
I mix-and-matched a feathered earring that I made and a purchased arrowhead earring, which worked out perfectly because I prefer to wear a single feather and I lost the other half of the arrowhead pair last October.
