The trend around the beaches these days is everything ripped, and everything shredded. My beach days tend to fall on Sundays the most. I think that’s just the day I feel most ok with being lazy, not trying too hard, and baking in the sun for so long that I’m oddly worn out and get nothing else done. Since it still get’s a little cool by the beach most days (our really warm weather doesn’t usually happen as consistently until late summer) this happened to be a day where I felt like I needed the full sleeve length. This is a light sweater, and the ombre dip-dye and distressed details are perfect for that grungy, skater beach vibe that is oh-so-in right now.
I took my favorite high-waisted cutoffs, added the distressed sweater, and tossed on the most classic Venice Beach staple of all: Vans. These three elements are the exact recipe for that California casual beach-kid look. Looks like I’m blending right in.
