Matt and I spent a wonderful long weekend down in Santa Barbara visiting my parents. One afternoon we took a short drive to the beach and spent some time getting our feet wet. It was a beautiful day, but boy was that water cold! I found this 1970s seagull blouse at the thrift store before I left San Francisco, and I knew that I wanted to wear it during my seaside weekend. My suitcase was filled with navy, polka-dots, hats and short, warm weather dresses that were just perfect for my mini summer.

Ah, what a beautiful outfit! Red & navy is easily one of the best colour combos, and such a lovely spot for the photographs! The seagull print blouse is so darling - I'm starting to accumulate a rather large printed blous collection. Also, the little hat...it reminds me of the hats that the girls in "Madeline" wore! So sweet :)
