Soft sand, crashing waves, the smell of the sea. So incredibly relaxing. There are days when I wish there was a beach close by. The kind warm enough to swim in, of course. My little babies had the time of their lives. Notice how badly they wanted to keep walking? After a long afternoon of playing tourists around the famous Santa Monica pier (satisfying my mom's curiosity from watching "Private Practice"), their teeny legs were tired and they had to be carried back to the car.
I've worn this chunky knit sweater a number of times already (some for a few consecutive days straight) and I really can't hide how much I love it. It's a perfect beach cover-up. Which brings me to great news -- Rebecca Taylor plans on opening up a San Francisco store in 2013. Yes, 2013 is still a while from now, but it's already getting me excited. I'll be needing a replacement soon (like this one)... a tad bit sooner than the store opening.
