California Winter

Happy Monday everyone! Last Friday, I met up with Ashley of Southern California Belle for coffee and shopping, and of course we couldn't part ways without taking some outfit photos too! I met Ashley about a year ago through a clothing swap group on Facebook-- I recognized her profile picture from ModCloth's Style Gallery, and a few weeks later we both ended up going to the Pinup Girl Clothing's yard sale and meeting each other in person there! We have hung out a few times since then and it's always been fun; she's such a sweet person with incredible style ;).

After shopping on Friday, we drove around a bit looking for a nice place to take pictures. We ended up going to this beautiful park which is close to where I live. It's crazy how much time I've spent at this park as a child, and how many of my birthdays have been held here! Now, coming here serves a whole new purpose-- a beautiful spot for outfit shots :). Anyway, the pictures from today's post are taken with Ashley's camera, so I have her to thank for them. I learned a few posing and camera tricks from her too :). I am wearing my green Closet dress (one of my first ModCloth purchases!) with a red belt and a yellow flower crown. I love the combination of these three colors and have worn them together in a different outfit before.

Outfit Details:
Belt: Sidecca
Flower Crown: Sidecca
Shoes: ModCloth

I've actually worn this dress before, with the same shoes but different accessories. One big change is that here I'm wearing tights. It's been a pretty warm winter in Southern California (unsurprisingly), and a pair of tights and a cardigan are usually all that are necessary to make my outfit "winter appropriate" for a typical winter day here :).

It's wonderful that bloggers can find and communicate with other bloggers from literally anywhere in the world, but being able to meet in person allows us to connect on a whole new level. I'm so glad Ashley and I both live in Southern California and we have the opportunity to get together once in a while!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
