Pardon my paleness, but it has been at least five years since I’ve spent any notable duration of time in a swimsuit. The San Francisco weather isn’t exactly conducive to sunbathing. That, however, is what made a full day spent at the beach this weekend oh so sweet!

We visited friends, rode bikes, strolled the boardwalk, and drank in the sun. I love summer.

Side note: So thrilled to be headed to Miami later on Thursday for Mercedes Benz Swim Week! Thanks so much to Socialyte.co, the Bal Harbour Shops, and Soho House for making it happen. Be sure to stay tuned for live updates on twitter, instagram, etc. along the way.

    I spent some much needed time in a bikini today too (although mine’s not as cute as yours!) – but I’ve ended up sunburnt, ouch! ;)

    Gorgeous suit! I love the vintage cut. And paired with that straw hat it’s true perfection.
