For as long as I can remember, I've had a love affair with California.  From the gorgeous Pacific Coast highway to the northern corner and its majestic peaks, there are a zillion things to love about the Golden State.  I've also been inspired by this girl and her Venice Beach adventures.  So, with that today's post is dedicate to all things Cali and the must-have staples of the west coast girl's closet.  And, even if you aren't heading to L.A., you can look and feel the part.  

A pretty little sundress always fits the bill.  This one is so cute and can go to the beach as easily as it can go to dinner.  Great sunnies are a must and these two pairs (here and here) will take you anywhere you want to go.  A silky cami, denim shorts and playful sneakers are the standard uniform for daytime running around.  A raffia bag, cute straw hat and swipe of this gloss round out the list.  

Grab your camera when you go because I know those west coast sunsets are not to be missed.  Along with all the other must-see highlights.  Here's to the wanderlust in all of us...Have a great Monday everyone!
