Shiny Beaches

Michael Kors Sweater & Pants, Christian Louboutin Shoes, L&T Hat, Balenciaga Bag, Necklace purchased in Italy
 Photography by Susy, Editing by Me
 Oh man, what I would do to get on a plane and fly to a hot sunny beach, sip drinks with umbrellas in them and read loads of trashy books and fashion magazines. Hopefully soon! I could really use a vacation right now.
These photos were taken close to the beaches of where I grew up and where my parents still live. Brings back so many amazing childhood memories!

    lovely, as always! a balenciaga bag has become one of my goal purchases, thanks to you and your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    as for vacay, do i ever need one right now! one of my resolutions is to cross off one city off my "places to go" list. hopefully i can make it happen!

  • Meagan

    I always love your outfits but I think this actually might be one of my favorites. I love how you paired the shiny top with the leather pants and the sheer black top underneath…just perfect. And on the beach? Great photos!

  • Tess S.

    love the outfit especially the leddings and sheer shirt peeking out. Speaking of which I have a post all about sheer and princes on my blog.
