It's summertime, so of course I've been daydreaming about California again. I'm ready to go back right now. Of all the places I've gone in this country, Santa Monica was by far my favorite. I was born in California but have very few memories of being there as a kid since we only lived there for a short time. I remember visiting once when I was little (maybe 4 or 5?), but when it was time for our honeymoon in 2010, I knew where I wanted to go. Thankfully, my sweet husband didn't care at all where we went and he'd never been to Cali so it was an easy decision. And I've been dreaming of going back ever since.
I recently received this super cute t-shirt from Chicwish with a beachy Cali photo and I adore it! The perfect summer top....my collection of California t-shirts is getting a little out of hand, but I have no regrets. I don't really wear any t-shirts anymore unless they are from a favorite band but I just can't resist a beautiful photo like this one. I've worn it a few times already, but last night, I paired it with these high-waisted shorts that I made last year. We went out for our friend Blake's birthday in downtown Indy with a boatload of friends. We actually got there early so Grant could snap these pictures real quick before we went in and I was desperately chasing the sunset light for these shots, but we were just a few minutes too late. Stupid sun needs to have a pause button.
Thanks to ChicWish for letting me share this beautiful top with you all! If you haven't noticed already, they are having a 40% off Sale on some gorgeous pieces for summer! I'm serious when I say I've never been disappointed with their clothes. Everything is always beautiful.
