I'm usually not one for outdoor adventures, but when the sight of isolated areas of beach are involved, sometimes you gotta make exceptions.  Who knew that tucked behind a quaint suburban neighbourhood was a cliff (well a hill, but it might has well have been a cliff) with a makeshift footpath with hidden obstacles and an unmarked destination.  So this path was pretty steep and I definitely needed the help of the branches surrounding me...when they weren't busy stabbing me.  There were rocks that were meant to help your footing, and good grief, I needed them in these treadless shoes.  Despite being a grungy span of sand and shells rather than a real beach, I'd say the location I found was quite worth it.

But next time, I think I'll wear pants.  This was not a good day to try the "wear a shirt as a dress/skirt" thing.  Climbing up the hill again would not have been fun if there was someone behind me.

What I'm wearing: 
-Brown twill jacket 
-Contrast trim blouse
-Red waterfall shirt 
-Chandelier earrings 
-Black patent leather booties 
*All items excluding shoes c/o Smart Set

  5. This location looks gorgeous, I really miss the beach ( I grew up in NJ but now live in Colorado). I love the contrasting blouse with the red, but I could definitely see how pants may be easier in an outdoorsy place like this!
    Have a great day!

  6. Love this look! I'm a huge fan of pairing reds with a classic black and white palette. And I really dig it when I find random places to take outfit photos--in a random alley, at the edge of a cliff, in a field, you name it. Lovely look, Sabrina!

    With love from San Francisco, California,
