Fashion. Boho Beach Life. Grand Adventures. Decor Dreaming. Basically a hodge podge of things that make me happy.

Welcome to my life.

I realized that my blog had been deprived of some TLC over the last couple months. (insert embarrassed emoji face here) With the start of a new job, apartment hunting in the city, and other summer shenanigans…I guess I’ve gotten a little preoccupied. However, the above photos can pretty much sum up the last couple months. 

Between enjoying the summer sunshine, (I’m starting to accumulate all kinds of awkward tan lines, but I’m not complaining!) exploring my city by the bay, overdosing on BBQ shindigs, and of course spending these three glorious months with good company - time has been flyin’ by. 

So with that said, I vow to spend a little extra time devoted to this hodge-podge of happiness, in hopes that it might spread a little happiness to others too. Or at the very least help crack a smile or two. 

A while back, I got the chance to break in my Urban Barrels Bag Towel (Peep the post here!) Today, these snapshots from that glorious day made their way into my inbox only to remind me that a day spent soaking up the sunshine and hangin’ in the ocean (whether you’re a kook or big kahuna) is never a day wasted - Especially when in the likes of good company. 

Considering International Surfing Day 2014 is just a week away, I think it’s about time you got yourself barreled, am I right?

I was going through my sunglass collection the other day and realized it’s finally time for a trusty new pair…because let’s face it, a girl can never have enough of two things in life. One, being time spent at the beach and two, being an endless selection of colorful sunnies. 

Check out some pairs I’ve had my eyes on. (pun, totally intended)

Pink Mirrored Sunnies

Charlotte Rose Cut Out Sunnies 

Feathered Aviators

Karen Walker Anytime Sunnies

Mod Indie Block Sunnies 

Keep calm and surf on, amigos.

Roxy has outdone themselves yet again, with another collection that pretty much makes my heart go pitter patter with excitement. Their new Pop Surf collection for Spring looks effortlessly fun and funky with pieces that easily transition from water to sand. Not to mention the genius palm tree prints that can be mixed and matched to perfection with Roxy’s neon colored separates. 

This collection is a fashionista surfer girl’s dream. 

Some of my favorites:

Tiki Tri Bikini Top in Black 

Sunset Pant Leggings

Sunset Remix Long Sleeve Top

Surf Essentials Scooter Bikini Bottoms

Bali Tide Bikini

Sometimes you have one of those days where you just can’t shake the funk. Today’s been one of those days, so instead of lettin’ it get me down, I’ve come to the awesome conclusion of when in doubt, beach it out. Because the beach makes me happy, sandy, and smiley…it’s as simple as that.

But in the chance you can’t make it to the beach, light a coconut candle, throw on some beach jams, and look at these happy little gems here, here, here, oh and here too.

Spent an afternoon enjoying the sunshine outside. (I know I keep going on about the weather lately, but it’s been unreal) I love any day where I can throw on a casual tank and my favorite pair of flared Joe’s denim. Also - I’ve been known to find any occasion where I can throw on a floppy sun hat. This ensemble is what I’d like to call casual happy. 

Side note, please excuse my backyard, it’s slowly morphing into a mini jungle…but hey, it made for some cool photos.
