I'm going to be completely honest with you, I had no plan to make this as an official #OOTD. My philosophy with fashion is if you don't capture it then, you won't capture it in the future. 

I wore this look last Sunday when I visited family in Mission Viejo, and I got so many compliments on this top that I thought, well I haven't shot it for the blog yet, maybe it's time I do so.

My family have always lived in Orange County in many different locations. Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, Anaheim Hills, Long Beach, and Cypress. In this photo, I was in my neighborhood of Cypress where I spent growing up the majority of my life and its probably the cutest and most quiet small town to live in for OC beach cities. And, many of my friends from high school have come back to this area to start their lives with their significant others to start a family. 

The great thing about Orange County, is there is not a lot of traffic like you would expect in LA, but also, there is a relaxed beach vibe mentality to everyone who lives here. And you'd be surprised, it takes me about 15 mins to get to Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington, Anaheim, and Costa Mesa. OC is a no brainer to relocate to if you are looking to move to California.

Here is my OC Casual #OOTD

All these pieces are pretty old and I couldn't exactly find the exact styles online, but I did find look-a-likes. 

My top is by Free People, here are similar tops like mine, shop Ruelala and Free People.

My jeans are by Hudson Jeans, here is a similar style like mine by Hudson, shop it here. If you want my same raw hem look, all you need to do is cut the finished hem off and pop it in the washer to give an authentic raw hem frayed look.

My shoes are by Calvin Klein, here is a similar style like mine by CK, shop it here.

I'm also obsessed with Etsy minimalist jewelry right now, so here are a few of my favorite shops that I follow and have bought from. 

Happy Jeweler - delicate diamond rings, necklaces, and bracelets

Crown Jewelry Design - simple gold stacked and layering rings

KbestDesign - CZ stack rings

Tiger Gemstones - man made diamond pieces (where William got my promise ring)
