california girl.


Urban Outfitters intarsia swan motif jumper | Vintage leopard print ballet flats | Urban Outfitters studded satchel

As most of you know from my previous post, I spent the holidays back in L.A. with my family. These snapshots were taken at the beach as we surveyed the grandeur of the Christmas Day sunset. The weather in L.A. could not have been more glorious. One of the many perks when residing in Southern California. 

It has only been a couple days since I left to go back home. Although I am really glad to be back with Koby, I am also already longing in my heart for my family, as I miss them dearly. Especially my twin sister, who is my best gal friend in the whole wide world. There is nothing more precious than having someone who can finish your sentences, already know what you are thinking, understand your curious humor, and be your shield even when you are not expecting it. Being with my best gal friend and my family at the beach as the sun switches places with the moon could not be a more perfect way to spend Christmas day.

Spotted! I've been looking for leo flats like those everywhere. they always seem to look quite tacky/cheap/fake but yours are really nice :) I haven't thought of looking for that kind of flats in vintage shops. Guess I know where to go now... Thanks!
