Cardigan: thrifted
Shirt: Mango, sale
Jeans: Levi's
Socks: F21
Shoes: thrifted

Mild weather in SoCal has been the norm 'round these parts as of late (besides being super windy today that is...) and Grant and I have been taking full advantage. Luckily, I work near the beach so after work we've been taking sunset strolls to 1. obviously enjoy the nice weather and the beach, 2. to get myself used to walking a lot when we go to Europe! Grant tries to park as far away from the Huntington Beach pier as possible so that I can stretch my little legs out and to get my knee stronger (Fun fact: I got an MRI about a week ago and it seems like I have a slightly torn ACL and that my knee cap has shifted lower due to my leg surgery/ accident last year. Awesome).

Anyway, style wise...I've been really into buttoning my collars all the way to the top. I actually bought a shirt at the mall the other day (I can't remember the last time I did that...) but what drew me to the shirt was that, buttoned up, it reminded me of a policeman shirt or something---which I'm into. Oh and I've been cuffing my pants too and wearing fun socks but I think you guys new that I liked doing that already ;)

  11. Woah, talk about the Golden Hour, these photos are like digital gold! ; )

    Glad to see you're grinning away just like me; we should definitely start the smiling revolution. Sometimes I do the more pensive face because I find it turns out better on days when you're not feeling particularly photogenic, but nothing beats an honest happy smile.

    ALSO, I love this outfit so much.... and I am also obsessed with buttoning my collars as high as possible. But I think it's the inner Victorian in me, rather than the inner policeman... ; D

  21. There is definitely a lot of cool in buttoned up shirts :) Love these shots.

    I see that beach hut and I can't help but hear the Baywatch theme tune in my mind :D
    Such a beautiful sunset :)

  22. Love your menswear-ish look. Really cute on you! Also, great light in these pics.

    I hope you don't need more surgery on your knee! Yes, I would definitely recommend walking as much as possible before Europe. I walk all the time here (don't own a car) and even I got sore on diff. trips to Europe. It might help to have some good shoes when you're there, as dorky as that sounds, to take some of the pressure off your knee.

    Also, I agree about the lifeguard tower pic and Baywatch theme - lol.

  24. I've been buttoning my shirts all the way up as well. Don't know why I've been loving that lately. You look so great! I should really do some walking around Long Beach. I'm here visiting my brothers and haven't gotten a chance to really explore yet. The beaches here seem different from SD!
