Bad Joan goes to Ventura - Part 1

The California coast has a lot of little beach towns nestled along it's shoreline.  Bad Joan was lucky enough to be invited to a friend's beach house in Ventura County for the weekend.  Naturally she managed to have a little fun in the sun in some Badjoan.com attire!  Check it out...


The beach was right outside her front door...

...so she splashed around in the ocean...

...caught some rays...

...collected seashells...

...and finally relaxed to the sound of the ocean!

What Bad Joan is wearing:
-Merengue Silk Dress by gadogado - Retail $185 / Sale $36
-Beaded Fabric Necklace with Flower by jMorrow - BJ Exclusive $30
-Vintage Button Earrings by Sweet Evie - BJ Exclusive $17
-Freedom Bracelet by Josefina de Alba - Retail $58 / Sale $27
- Ring - Vintage

Check back next week to see Bad Joan's trip to the Ventura County Fair!

GTBB,
Bad Joan

I sort of got burned out on the beach (went 6 consecutive days to El Matador in July, for instance) but I went yesterday and really enjoyed myself! Also, with little effort my tan was instantly revived! Ahhh... I love our life! So glad you found me fellow Angeleno Blogger! Following - #355, gotta support my peers!
