One of my many dreams growing up has always been to visit California & eventually live there. I was finally able to make that happen last week! It was the most amazing trip I have taken in a while but one week was just not enough time. We (my boyfriend & I) stayed from Monday -Sat, so not really a full week (more like 4 days since we got in late and left early) But we got so much done! I decided to take advantage of the amazing weather and backgrounds to take OOTD pictures for you guys! The weather there was in the 60’s/70s but at night it got really chilly (and if you know me, I’m always cold!) which is why this post will contain two parts. I actually changed my outfit at night so that will be in my next OOTD post.
This first Outfit I wore on Tuesday, which was the first day we actually got to explore beautiful California. We were staying in Long Beach, so we decided to explore this area first. We ended up driving to a nearby beach which was a little deserted but beautiful nonetheless.
I decided to wear my Maxi dress because it was comfortable enough to walk around and stroll through the beach with, but also it covered my legs so that I wouldn’t freeze to death. okay, yes I’m exaggerating just a little bit, it wasn’t that cold, but being near the water deff. makes things a little more windy and chilly so this outfit was perfect.
Although you can’t see it in these pictures, for makeup, I wanted to go with a bold look because my outfit was so simple. Also, I haven’t been wearing much makeup lately because of work so it was fun playing with colors! We all know my favorite lipstick of all time is this purple one from Revlon so it was a must for the first day in my dream state.
