California Road Trip | Day 9/10: Venice Beach

Madewell Striped T-Shirt (similar), Gap Denim Short Overalls (similar), Converse White Chuck Taylor All-Star Sneakers, Volcom Olive Green Flat Brim Hat (similar)

Our second to last day in California started to wind down and the four of us drove down to Venice Beach to watch the sun set behind the Pacific. Back on the east coast I used to love waking up early to watch the sun rise over the ocean; but, at the same time, I was upset that I never got to watch the sun set over the Atlantic so this made me feel all the feels. There's also something about palm trees that's so magical and relaxing (even though most of them aren't natural to the region).

I started to miss California before we even got the sand out of our shoes and all that Venice Beach tar off the soles of our feet. What a west coast lovin' sap.

  10. Your sunglasses are so cool and unique. Cute summery look!


  11. Now, I appreciate the beauty that is unique to Southern California. When I was younger, I feel like I took everything for granted: the beaches, the palm trees, the fair weather, the cultural diversity and so much more.

    Reading about your trip and your appreciation for California makes me feel lucky to be living here. I had to step out for a while (I moved to Portland, Oregon for a year) only to find myself back in my home state and realize what I really had when I was growing up.

    Beautiful and happy photos! I hope you had a great time here, Jen!

  13. Aww, you guys are so cute and I see you swapping your sunglasses! ;) Me and my gf do the exact same thing when we take photos, haha.

    Venice beach is an interesting place. A bit grungy like Coney Island but also very pretty.
