I currently live in an area where it takes 2 hours in the least to get to the nearest beach, so it was a real privilege growing up next to one in Surf City Huntington Beach. My brother and I took a quick drive to our local beach and enjoyed some California sun. When my dad passed away two summers ago, all I wanted to wear was black, no matter how warm it was. I always thought it was respectful to mourn for those who have passed by wearing black. Just two weeks ago, my grandmother passed away, but the things I remember most about her are her smile, laughter, her warmth and love. Instead of donning myself all in black, I want to celebrate her amazing life by wearing some more color. I hope to follow her footsteps and be a more gracious and caring person for myself and those around me.
Trying to live life more colorfully, take it day by day, and make the best of it. Until next time, California.

Your outfit brightens my day, you look amazing and I'm getting some serious Kimbra vibes from you, you look beautiful!
You're so lucky to be able to like near (maybe 2 hours isn't near but…) a beach, all London has is problematic weather 🙁
