more of the same.

my fellow blog buddy, susan, said here that she couldn't imagine living somewhere that was sunny all the time...because she couldn't go without buying boots. i hear you, sister. living in this sunshiny state, i sometimes feel robbed of the opportunities to layer up and sport beautiful coats and tall boots. but it doesn't stop me from wanting them. and sometimes indulging in them. i have a closet full of boots that never get worn, and my latest obsession with military jackets has me scooping them up in every color from khaki to olive green. who knows when i'll be able to wear them...but what i do know is that on any day, at any time, i have the opportunity to rock a swimsuit and hit the beach. and that ain't so bad either.

military jacket + stripes + leopard.
(dress, saks; jacket, thrifted; shoes, victoria's secret)

shop the look:

  2. I would take the beach and sunny days over the cold any day! You live in such a beautiful place. Your jacket looks great over the striped dress and of course the leopard shoes rock! Heather

    I love this outfit the stripes and leopard print with the denim is so perfect. Such a great combination! I think it's so funny that you have a closet full of winter boots

  6. Oh I so envy you for your sunny state! I'm sure you can rock boots in the night . . . right? IDK I'm clearly ignorant when it comes to weather in other states (note to self, must travel more). I love your stripes and spots today Rebecca!

  7. boots are overrated!! lol I envy your sunny days especially because on the days new yorkers wear boots its usually blistering cold & you have to hide your face with a scarf to prevent wind burn!

  9. I would love to live somewhere with warmth and sunshine all the time! I hate winter and wintery clothes in general. I have to wear so many clothes to avoid getting cold. So you're really lucky, even though you can't wear boots and coats where you live. I would trade coats and boots for beaches and swimsuits any time.

  10. I absolutely adore your shoes!

    I guess living in Hawaii is similar to living in San Diego, in regards to weather.

  13. You look really cute but I agree.. I come from a tropical country and I can no longer stand it. I need autumn, a crisp cool breeze, cardigans and boots

  15. I hear you. It's always sunny in my city and it did not stop me from buying clothes that needs to be worn in a colder temperature. Haha! I want to weed out my closet though.

  16. I'd totally give away the chance to wear boots to live in such an insanely gorgeous place. I love my boots, but I love my sunshine and water more!

  17. seriously, Becks. That's a hard decision to make. ;) I LOVE cold weather a lot though, even though I would kill to be able to go to the beach right now!

  18. I totally get what you mean about living somewhere thats always sunny. I lived in FL my whole life so I never owned a pair of boots until moving to NYC 2 years ago. I now work for a boot company and couldn't imagine not wearing boots all the time!

    I am loving this outfit. The military jacket is absolute perfection. Hope you have a great weekend!

  19. A depression of mine too, to wear boots and trench coat but it's far from reality as I live in the tropics, but who knows someday I'll be able to do it, right? So I agree on your thoughts about it, but you seems better cause you buy and stuck it on your closet and just ready to pick it up when you need it. Love all the photos and you're one sexy mama!

  20. You know I love stripes. That dress is perfection.
    And with this Indian summer we have here in LA, I'm also fully lustful of boots. I can't wait until the temperatures drop juuuuust a little so I can start layering :)
