I'm on a Boat!

This Memorial Day weekend, Ryan and I, along with a few friends went to Marina Del Rey to go sailing, and it was amazing. Here are a few pictures of our adventures...luckily, it remained just a 3-hour tour and no one had to make a phone out of a coconut.
our view of santa monica, from the sail boat.

Well of course I'm going to have to go nautical if I'm going sailing! The tank is from some F21 knock-off store for $12 (the straps were actually rope, so that was cool), white shorts from Old Navy, and the slip-on shoes from Payless ($15!). The scarf was from F21 at a mere $4.
my sailor, ryan.

Ryan also rocked a nautical-inspired outfit with a Martin + Osa polo and pastel-striped shorts from Bloomy's.

my favorite guys, who happen to be ryan & his cousins.

Again with my braid and side-bun. I'm telling you! It's the best for going to the beach or sailing so your hair doesn't fly around all crazy and get knotted.

Trishiekoh was kind enough to holleratchagirl and bestow my first blog award:
Since this was my first award, I had no idea what to do with it. Luckily she provided me with instructions!
The Rules:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3) Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So my only question can a blog win more than once? Because I'm sure that everyone I visit and love have already won this award. But who doesn't like winning multiple awards? These blogs are definitely lovely:

Phi Style
I Am Style-ish
My So Called Fabulous Life
Evil Midori
Life is Bananas
It's Heavenly
Being High Maintenance, not Bitchy
Song of Style
Love Meagan
Fashion Geometry
Don't Eat My Rice

Thanks for the love!
