These photos were taken a few weeks ago when my boyfriend and I headed to Monterey to visit the aquarium. (Those of you who follow me on Instagram might remember my photos of jellyfish, sharks and sand dollars.) It might be a bit nerdy, but I absolutely love aquariums and the Monterey Bay Aquarium is among the nicest I’ve visited. If you live in the Bay Area and haven’t been yet, I definitely recommend it!
With a two hour drive and hours of walking ahead of me, my main goal was comfort. While I’d usually reach for boyfriend jeans, I just felt like wearing a dress. This sweater dress is easily one of the most comfortable pieces in my closet, and it was just warm enough to allow me to go without a jacket - perfect! Feeling too cheerful for black tights, I decided on a purple pair but still craved more color. I wasn’t sure if these loafers would be garish against the purple tights but I quite like the combination. What do you think? Are bold tights best suited to matching or neutral shoes?
