A Shore Thing

2.12.2013

 Today was composed of getting truckloads of sand in awkward places, a montage of picture-taking, and clinching my nose from the putrid odor of "sludge" aka fecal matter. Sounds delightful, doesn't it? Amid the oxygen deprivation from holding my breath after tsunamis of rancid smells attacked us during our trip to the Santa Monica Water Sewage Plantation, the 3 hours spent on the beach was extremely relaxing. It was definitely much better than trudging around like a zombie on campus to listen to teachers drone on.  

 I wanted to embed some scenic beach shots. I know it can get stale, but I couldn't help it! California weather and beaches are such a perfect combination.
The shot before this was an absolute trainwreck--I consistently reminded my friends to warn me if a wave was nearby, but obviously.. that didn't happen and my boots were completely drenched. My socks were so soaked and trillions of gritty sand sufficiently stuck to the insides of my boots in every nook and cranny. Thank god for changing stalls! (:
I snapped a candid of my friend, Rachel and I really liked the way that her beanie colors and hair color popped. She has this urban outfitters-inspired, edgy look that normally consists of slouchy beanies, mens oversized sweaters, and studs and spikes galore.
I tried taking as many shots as I could with the lifeguard tower because of it's precious shade of blue. Usually they're a rusty orange and yellow color, so I was immediately drawn to the pixie blue hue.
Wearing: Kimchi Blue Thrifted Lace Top, Anthropologie Pants, F21 rings, Steve Madden Boots, American Eagle Outfitters Socks, Vintage Backpack from mom, Free People Jacket, Gifted Necklace.
It felt extremely awkward and out-of-place wearing my boots and long pants to the beach but hey, it's wintertime! This is probably my longest post ever (I just kind of got a little too camera trigger-friendly). We spent lunch after our tour around the plant and for the oddest reason, I was really hungry! I had the most bomb honey Peanut Butter spread ever and watched this incredibly ridiculous yet embarassingly funny video on Barbie dolls talking in valley girl accents. Overall, it was a pretty successful yet horrifyingly unsanitary day (: 

How was your day? :D

      I wish I could live in the UK though! I think it'd be amazing to just live there for a little bit. Sometimes grey clouds and wind can be a refreshing break from the hot sun and the heat though
