This is the outfit I wore on my day off last Thursday. Even though I'm currently in an outfit rut, this outfit came together pretty easily because I knew I wanted it to be non-fussy for the beach trip and shopping ahead. Robert and I started off the morning slow--staying a while in bed, snuggling, and watching a few episodes of "Friends." We then grabbed a quick bite for lunch and some snacks. Instead of driving south along Pacific Coast Highway to our normal beach, we decided to head north to Huntington Beach. We parked on Main Street, and walked the strip where there were little boutiques and restaurants. It was so nice taking our time so we could enjoy each others' company and the beautiful sunshine. Before heading to the beach, we grabbed an ice cream sandwich from The Scoop on Cookies. It was such a beautiful day to go to the beach. It wasn't too crowded, and the waves were huge. We spread out a blanket, brought out our snacks, tried to read, gave up on reading, and just ended up talking. Afterwards, we did a little shopping and had sushi for dinner. It was such a simple and carefree day, but to me those are the best days. I don't need a whole lot to be happy.

Until next post,
