Going to the beach has always been one of my favorite summer activities, but I haven’t been able to enjoy many beach days this summer since it’s quite challenging getting to the coast without a car. Luckily for me, the new Expo line takes you all the way to Santa Monica so I was able to spend some time at the beach while visiting family in LA. Ale and I got up bright and early on Saturday morning to make the two-hour trek from Pasadena to Santa Monica, which actually goes by pretty quickly if you have a set of headphones and a good playlist.
The train drops you off right in Downtown Santa Monica, so Ale and I made a pitstop at Demitasse for coffee and pastries and walked past the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market before making it to the beach. Since the beach near Santa Monica Pier can get very crowded on summer days, Ale and I decided to pick a spot that was a bit further away. I would definitely recommend doing that if you’re seeking a much more relaxed and quiet day at the beach.
Now let’s talk about my bathing suit! I’ve had to improvise with swimsuit tops in previous summers since it can be hard to find one that fits me well, and this year was no exception. I was looking for something cute that would provide enough support, and this strappy sports bra from Forever 21 fit just the criteria. These high waist bottoms from Topshop that I purchased two years ago are still going strong since they are comfortable, provide a good amount of coverage and can be combined with pretty much any top. I’m always a fan of pieces that are versatile and stand the test of time.
As always, thank you for stopping by my blog!
xoxo,
Helen
