Santa Monica

Anyways I went to Santa Monica beach and pier with my bff K this weekend to have a little fun in the sun!!!

AlphaBetaChic x Royal Menagerie Flower Crown

When I'm getting ready in the morning, hair is usually the last thing I think about. I've been playing a lot with hair accessories lately to hide the fact that I don't even brush it. My latest obsession has been flower crowns. There's something so whimsical and magical about a hair wreath that most traditional headbands just don't have.

Thank you so much to Alison of Royal Menagerie who sent over this flower crown. I knew it would be beautiful from the pictures, but it's even better in person and very, very well-made! I've been wearing it everyday since it came in the mail.

  34. Beautiful from head to toe. I would have made the picture barefoot hold the shoes by the sling back, must be uncomfortable with sand in the shoes. But lovely, lovely picture. Clothes and all asessories, especially the head band,just fit. ybutler@oppcatv.com

  35. The pictures are beautiful. Everything from head to toe was so lovely on a beautiful girl. Simple and classy. The headband was absolutely stunning. I would have made the photo bare- footed with shoes carried swinging on her fingers because the sand in the shoes must be uncomfortable. The outfit just fits the surroundings making one classy setting. ybutler@oppcatv.com
