pretty pants & pastels…
This lovely lagoon in Carlsbad is one of my absolute favorite sunny SoCal spots… its trail is so rarely (if ever) crowded and I simply cannot get enough of the stunning reeds and soft blue sky. Since arriving home I have frequented this location often; once a week at the very least. It is serene, calm, and cute here. I’ll miss strolling in this place oh-so-much while away.
Now, I almost never-ever wear pants, but this elegant black pair is too comfy, and paired beautifully with my new pale Zara top. Is it not the sweetest thing? I am utterly obsessed with the shade of blue and that ‘lil flounce! (I think it’s a flounce? Hmmm… my style vocabulary could use a refresher.)
Anyways! What have you been up to as of late? This morn I had my hair cut and colored – back to black, hurrah! (Alexis at Studio 514 was fab, as always.) Annnd just two more days here in California before I jet off yet again… adventure awaits! (Oh, but I still have so much to do. And yet, I am sitting here, blogging. Priorities, am I right?)

Have a delightful evening, all! Sending hearts,
Your photos are gorgeous, as always! I really love your whole blog aesthetic.
I can definitely agree about the never-wearing-pants things (haha sounds weird), unless it’s a really great pair! Your outfit looks nice!

Awww, you are too, too sweet, Julia! Thank you so much; your kind words mean the world. And hahah, right?! I don’t own a single pair of jeans and actually stole these pants from my mom (oops 😉 ), but they’re so comfy! I’m actually wearing them on a plane right now – and I, like, never-ever wear pants while traveling (yep… does sound weird haha).
truly beautiful pictures, I love the palette and the tone, really gorgeous. <3
Oh, thank you so much, Sarah. This means so much coming from you, truly – your photographs are always so soft and lovely. They inspire me. xo
What a beautiful setting and such stunning imagery.
Thank you so much, Sophia! <3
Love these photos Abby! You’re so gorgeous as is the lagoon! xx
Awww, thanks so much, sweet girl! I hope you make it Paris sometime over the next year or two – we need to meet and take photos IRL! <3 xx
Your photos are absolutely beautiful! The place looks so calm and pretty!
Thanks, Monique! <3 xx
LOVE the shoes!! Oh gosh, I need to get my hair done… -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
Thanks, Audrey! When I saw those shoes on Modcloth I HAD to snatch a pair. And OMG they are so comfy and I literally wear them all the time.
Oof, and I know… I am *so* bad about getting my hair done, but it’s totally worth it. I try to make appointments months in advance so that I have them and feel obligated to go hahah. <3
These pictures are so cute and lovely and it makes me happy <3
Aww, thanks, Ilah <3
Beautiful photos! I hope you don’t have allergies haha! But the place seems really beautiful and peaceful.
