Lately the weather has just been so amazing I have wanted to spend every second at the beach. Alas it is not that easy, since the drive can take up to 2 hours 1-way when they are doing construction on the freeway (which last time they were!). It is really lovely though being able to eat delicious food at a seaside restaurant and watch the gorgeous lights in the sky as the sun sets over the ocean. My sister on the other hand loves to go out to the beach and sit around a bonfire with her friends while playing music and roasting marshmallows. Sounds pretty awesome right? :)

This striped maxi is just perfect for a beach-y day, or any time you want to feel nautical and summery. You definitely have to be a bit of a risk taker to pull off the open back too, otherwise you could wear a loose cardi :) Also I wanted a pop of color and felt orange worked well. Otherwise kept the look streamlined with my black wedges. 

Happy Sunday all and don't forget to enter the
