I had wished for better weather this past weekend to show off my Ella Moss vintage-inspired bikini from SwimSpot, but alas the clouds rolled on in and stayed by the time I could get out to the sand. No bother, I love dressing up a good bikini top for daytime strolling. My favorite street swimwear look is pairing a bikini top with high waisted shorts or skirt and an opened button down shirt (or jacket in my case because it was chilly). It's cute without overtly showing skin. I adore this bikini because of its colorful, retro floral print and style, so it only made sense to go for an entire vintage-inspired look. Check out SwimSpot for more designer swimwear, they have tons of cute selections!
This thrifted Levi's jacket is one of my most favorite finds ever, especially after always wanting a classic, heritage denim jacket. This past Saturday, I was in Newport Beach for a friend's birthday and I regrettably forgot my varsity jacket in the car as we headed out in the late afternoon. Kyle took me across the street from the bar to Newport Crossroads and scoured each rack for jackets or sweaters. No after no to everything found in the women's section so I headed to the men's, much to Kyle's surprise. I honestly love the simple cuts of men's jackets and the slouched look it has on a women's frame like mine. And there I found this Levi's, the last on the rack, and in a small. It's probably the best purchase I've ever done on a whim and in a time crunch and after some of my last hopes of staying warm had gone. Thanks to Crossroads for being awesome!
