Summer Outfit Guide for the Venice Freak in You

 Megadeth Hat: Vintage from Long Beach Flea Market: Bikini Top: It's old and I don't remember, Flannel: Vintage, Boardshorts: Volcom c/o FreeStyleXtreme

Okay so I love this flannel. Do I actually wear it to the beach? Absolutely. As you may notice in these photos, the start of summer at the beaches in Oceanside (and at most San Diego beaches) are not sunny whatsoever, so bringing a flannel in tow is a necessity for the coolish temperatures. But no matter how hazy and strange the weather, I've definitely got a few constants when it comes to Summer attire.

For this time of year, here are my musts:

Statement Sunglasses
Beach or no beach, it wouldn't be summer without wearing some crazy-ass loud sunglasses. If you've seen my Instagram, you already know what I'm talking about. I've seen a lot of rad, and ridiculously inexpensive ones lately from ZeroUV.
Long Baggy Shorts
More fun than the average denim cutoffs (which I also have plenty of), I like to throw things off and tomboy-up my summer outfits with longer and/or slouchier shorts. Bonus that these Volcom ones from FreestyleXtreme that I'm wearing are neon and amazing, but I also love the vibe of the length in other awesome fabrics.

Cooler than Normal Baseball Caps
More often than not, I can easily find a rad vintage cap whenever I'm in a thrift store. I don't know why there always seems to be an abundance of cool vintage baseball hats when I'm hunting, but it seems that this accessory is the least picked-through or sought-after in thrift stores. I bought the one I'm wearing above along with a similarly styled "Black Sabbath" one from the Long Beach Flea Market for a total of $10. Score. I'll usually opt for vintage when it comes to caps, but I threw in the hawaiian-print Huf hat which I'm dying to purchase as soon as they are back in stock:

All of the above items also go well with a Bud Light tall can in a brown paper bag, a bowl of fresh fruit  with chili powder sprinkled on top, as much impractical jewelry as desired and a pocket full of hand-picked incense from your local beach vendor.
