Summer Sunset

Before I get to my outfit of the week, I wanted to let you know that I am posting over at The Girl With the Blue Bow today! It's a really fun post called "Rock-tails" - cocktails with rock & roll inspired names! Please be sure to stop by and check it out :)

Today's Friday's Fancies theme is summer sunset - the perfect theme for A SoCal girl like me. While I don't get to the beach nearly enough, I did grow up playing in the ocean at beautiful beaches such as Huntington, Newport, and Laguna. The plan is to go to a local dog beach Monday!

My summer sunset outfit is something I'd wear to a bonfire. And where do you go to fashion yourself for the surf and sand? Tillys! The entire outfit below is currently available on their site.

Summer Sunset


There was a time (junior high and high school) when I only wore surf/skate related clothing. If it was Roxy I had it. When Hurley came out I was the first at my high school to sport one of their shirts. Billabong and Volcom were my go-to brands. As I got older, and began paying for my own clothes, I slowly started shopping for other brands but I will always love the "beach clothes". Now I need to get to Tillys and do some shopping this weekend!


Speaking of, be sure to come back on Monday and tell us all about your weekend! I host a weekly bloghop with Sami of Sami's Shenanigans and Dana from Five30Three called Weekend Update. We'd love to have you!

Girl, even though I am from Texas, I loved Billabong and Roxy...I seriously thought I was the cool kid in the halls wearing it! ;) I mean the beach was 45 minutes from me....but not the kind you grew up with! ;) Loving your sunset inspiration. Have fun at the doggy beach and have a FAB weekend! ;)
