One of my and Andrew's favorite places to go when we are back home is Balboa Island. It's a cute little beach town that is technically an "island" (by like 10 feet of water...) and is always fun to spend the day at. All the houses are so beautiful, and it's nice to walk down the coast and then take the ferry over to Balboa Peninsula to play arcade games and ride the ferris wheel. We were both so busy over spring break that we weren't able to spend an entire day together until Saturday, so it was nice to end our break at Balboa.

For my outfit, I decided to wear my new—and amazingly comfortable—sweatshirt dress. I had been eyeing it at Madewell for months and finally treated myself to it as a reward for landing my new internship (more details soon!). At first I was worried it was too plain, but then I realized its grey color makes it easy to pair with any colored accessories! That's the thing about simple basics—I have to force myself to buy them, but once I do, I always get such good use out of them by remixing them in new and different ways. So...don't be surprised if you see quite a lot of this grey dress from now on :)

P.S. Don't forget to make the Google Reader switch, and follow along on Bloglovin'!

  1. That dress looks super comfy, and it's such a flattering shape! I also love the scarf - pretty pattern and colors.

  2. I. Love. That. Dress. It looks like exactly what I've been wanting as a summer dress FOREVER!!!!

  3. I love that dress. I don't wear it often because it seems kind of blah on me. But man, that scarf really jazzes it up. How do you tie a scarf like that?
