Transitioning into the winter season is always difficult for me. The days are shorter and colder, and my summer tan that lingered through the fall disappears. One of the things I do love about the winter is that the beaches are empty and calm, and the ocean has a crisp look to it. I love sitting on the sand and watching the big sets roll through. On one of my recent winter beach excursions I wore my new favorite holiday dress. This flowy maxi dress is the perfect holiday color and can be worn so many ways. I went barefoot and put some of my favorite white winter flowers in my hair, but for my holiday parties I am planning on wearing a pair of platforms and a tribal choker necklace. I also love the fact that this dress has long sleeves – not only is it more flattering, but it keeps you warm on these cool nights! I think I will be able to make it through winter as long as perfect winter styles like these keep coming my way.

SeaMade: Big Sur

madison lookout_watts
You know it’s time for a road trip to nature when your eyes start sporadically twitching from starting at a screen too much. Which is exactly what a couple of my best friends and I did last week. I hopped on board to Big Sur with staff photographer at Surfline Billy Watts and his girlfriend Jessica for an amazing week of camping, waves, hiking, and relaxing. It was the best vacation a burnt out college student like me could ask for right before finals. The sun blazed, the winds howled offshore, the beer never stopped flowing, and the beaches refreshed our tired bodies. To follow is a highlight reel of our trip, which really does not do the trip or Big Sur justice. The place is frikin’ amazing. Do yourself (and tired eyes) a favor and get there ASAP.
