Blue Lace Dress

Blue by the water

This past weekend was the first weekend in a while I got to be at home base. After an unexpected trip to Ohio, followed by a weekend in Tahoe, a little sun and sea was exactly what I needed. I spent a few hours in Alameda at a Restoration Hardware warehouse sale, where after 80% discounts, I still couldn't afford anything, to Ikea where I COULD afford many things, and a brewery in between (: 

On Valentine's Day, I went on a walk along Ocean Beach to Lands End and had a little picnic in the panhandle. It was an amazing contrast to last year, where I spent the weekend and week snowed into my apartment on Ida Street. Ahh! Seventy and sunny beats snowy ice any day :D

Anyway: this blue dress! I saw my bestie Natalie wearing it and instantly fell in love. I bought it on discount at Free People and waited the arrival anxiously. After I tried it on, I realized it was much shorter than I usually wear my dresses, so I added some tights and a long coat. I've been trying to get back into the floppy hat too (it's been a while, huh?) and thought a trip to watch the sunset in Marin would be the perfect occasion. 

How do you like the boho look? Sending you lots and lots of love and warmth from the west coast. xox
