Chambray: Forever 21 | Chevron Tunic: Shop Sosie | Pants: Forever 21 | Boots: Target | Necklace: Francesca’s | Bag: Cuore & Pelle via Style Mined

So I wore this outfit last month while I was strolling and shopping along Third Street Promenade with my sister in law.  Totally forgot to post about them until now, that’s how crazy my mind has been these days.  I’m excited to be going back to California again later this month, just as the weather starts to get cold in Missouri.  We have a family photoshoot planned with Anna Delores (so fun to have met her through blogging) and just a really packed schedule for our trip as always.  I used to take traveling for granted as I did it all the time.  For the last 7 years of my career (before I had A), I literally traveled almost every other week for work.  That was my routine, to fly out Monday, come home Thursday.  At first, I’d go out and enjoy all the new things and places to see, but after awhile, I pretty much had seen it all and ended up staying in my hotel room and blogging most nights away.  ;)  But now that I don’t ever travel anymore for work, it’s something that I truly look forward to.  There’s nothing better than kicking the routine once in awhile, finding a new hot spot, discovering different cuisines, letting go of my worries at work, and spending time with the family… and there’s no better place for it than California, love that place.  :)  Oh and the weather ain’t too shabby either.

    I just love Third Street! We’ve been to Santa Monica about 10 times over the years and always stay at a hotel just around the corner. I’ve spent so many hours there shopping! :) LOVE this outfit too! Love how you wore a dress as a top. So chic!

    I love this chevron tunic, but even more I like how you styled it! I would have never thought to layer it with chambray. You look great!
