Coastal, Coral & Crafty Finds

Black & Coral Outfit featuring Gap Jeans
Gap Sweater and Jeans // Gucci Purse (old) // Steve Madden Booties (similar here) // Prada Sunnies // Monogram Necklace

I love living by the beach. In fact, I love it so much I am willing to take a smaller office for work just to have  peak office view from the front door. Not from my office, you see...from outside the front door. But hey, I'll take it! I am a little obsessed with ocean views.

A sign my sister got for me while she was in town over the holidays. 
It's perfectly true and my new favorite quote!

Yesterday I went office space hunting with some co-workers and we narrowed it down to two. I picked my choice (obviously to be close to the beach) but we will see what comes out of it. Since I work from home, I had about 10 minutes to find something to wear other than sweats for the office hunt.

I knew I needed some brightness so I pulled out the old coral jeans and threw on a sweater over my Lululemon workout tank (shhh, don't tell anyone I was still in sort of in sweats).

My newest outfit staples are monogram necklaces. I ordered two but am ready to order a few more. I am dying for a tortoise one next. I got them both from this Etsy store. To be honest, I was not impressed with the chains they came on but since I make and sell my own necklaces, it was an easy swap. Now I adore them. I ordered an acrylic gold mirror one with my regular initial monogram and a white one with J&J instead to mix it up.

Speaking of necklaces - don't forget to check out my Etsy store. All CWAK readers get 10% off with the CWAK2013 promo code.

  1. An office by the beach sounds so wonderful! I wish I lived near the beach, it's so pretty and I love the beach sounds. What do you do for work? I'm currently looking for a work from home job but I don't know where to start!

    1. I know...I feel pretty lucky to be here. Growing up in Seattle all I wanted was to live in warm weather by the beach. Somehow I made it happen! What type of job are you looking for? It took me a while to find a work from home job but Im so happy I did. Although that is going to be short lived. At least my new office is close! :)

  2. I live at the beach too and it's the best! My office is not near the beach though, so no ocean views at work. I recently got a monogram necklace from Etsy too :)

    1. Sharon, I know...your pictures by the beach always made me jealous until I moved out here. At least you have great views from home, right? Where did you get your necklace?
