Few Hours In Santa Monica

 Yesterday, we hung out in Santa Monica for a few hours. We grabbed lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Monica, Cora's Cafe, and walked along the Promenade. I want to live in Santa Monica soo badly. 
In Santa Monica, I wore a metallic dress thrifted for $9 and a jean jacket also thrifted.
Oh yeah, we also took a little trip to IKEA on the way out... above is the typical look of our car after any trip here.

Long Beach

We spent today cruisin' around Long Beach via bikes and hanging out on the beach in what turned out to be some surprisingly warmer weather. 
I wore a really great colored BCBG dress that I bought from a thrift store ($6), a white denim Lucky Brand also from a thrift store ($10), a vintage purse I've had forever, and my new BC Footwear sandals from Nordstrom's Rack ($35 I think).

The Crab Cooker

Mmm for those of you who have never been, The Crab Cooker in Newport Beach is tasty business. My family has been going there for a while now and last night I got my yearly Crab Cooker fixin' in. 
I wore a cashmere sweater ($6) from a thrift store, vintage shorts ($1.50) also from a thrift store, a necklace from The Gypsy Den, shoes from Nordstrom's Rack, and a vintage purse that's been in my house forever.
Today we're going to rent bikes and check out the consignment, vintage, & thrift stores in the area... excellent.

Thom Yorke... a name that needs no introduction. 
Hand-painted galaxy shorts from The Gypsy Den. I'm in love.
 We spotted Reggie Watts on the ferris wheel just before we went to his set in the Comedy Tent. Hilarious dude.
The last night at Bonnaroo & it was raining. I'm wearing a thrifted dress, my go-to spiked necklace from The Gypsy Den, and a sweater from The Gap's sale.
So basically Bonnaroo was/is awesome. We scored on some unusually cool weather for the fest this year and we were not complaining. This was my first year attending and it was amazing. And even though I did go to a festival that was hundreds of miles away from home, I still managed to stay true to my thrifty-ness. Instead of paying for a $300 four day pass plus camping and $240 travel expenses, we decided to volunteer at the fest through the Work Exchange Team (WET) which covered our full ticket, camping, and three $8 meal tokens to use at the festival vendors... it was a really great deal.
 Anyways, I hope you enjoyed some of these photos I managed to take. Below is link to a video compilation of some of the acts I saw over the weekend... enjoy!
