Sunny in Santa Monica

As a child, I have fond memories of sitting in the backseat of a car and enjoying the scenery along PCH in Malibu. Most of my mother's family lived there, so frequent outings to the area are forever ingrained in the fabric of my childhood. Specific landmarks stand out in my mind: the castle (which, sadly enough, burned down recently), Pepperdine University, Zuma beach, Gladstone's, and the Getty Villa. In order to create new memories as an adult, get some shopping done, and enjoy the great weather, I took my four-legged friend out for a day of shopping at 3rd St. Promenade in Santa Monica on Tuesday. We strolled along the Santa Monica Pier and contemplated going on the ferris wheel, but opted instead to enjoy the ocean views while several people stopped to admire and pet the dog. I wore a new top from Dorothy Perkins that was clearly inspired by Miucca's spring 2010 collection. Who knew that over a year later, I'd still be snatching up almost every bird or cat print piece of apparel I could get my hands on?
