A trip down to Costa Mesa meant a photoshoot at the the Jetty in Newport Beach. With the temperature at a nice 75 degrees, I opted for a knit sleeveless dress by Sun and Shadows. Since returning back to school in October, I’ve become quite the bargain shopper. I found this cute olive number at Nordstrom Rack for under $20. Find it here.
