Roses by the Sea

September 4, 2012

What a fulfilling weekend where I traveled up and down the bay area and central coast! We took a spontaneous trip down to Monterey yesterday, the weather was sunny and beautiful, but the drive there and back was bizarre... a mile of sunshine, a mile of gray sky, a mile of fog, and vice versa. Although the weather was warm, Monterey tends to be windy so I wore a lightweight long sleeves sweater. Perhaps calling it a sweater isn't truly correct, this piece is so light it's more like a knit top than a sweater. Either way, I love the pretty rose print! I also love the shredded distress look as well, makes it a little more interesting. You might not be able to tell, but the top is a little shimmery as well because it has gold metallic threads interwoven in the knit. Since it is such a statement piece, I kept the rest of the outfit simple and monochromatic with crochet shorts, quilted purse, and metal tipped flats.
Rose print knit top c/o VJ Style.
Crochet lace shorts by Lush from my work Sway.
Thrifted vintage quilted purse.
Metal tipped flats from F21.
