Maybe I'm showing my age, but to me the trend of wearing two (or more) patterns together looks "wrong." I'm talking about people who wear a flowered blouse with a plaid skirt, or camouflage pants and a striped shirt, for example. Until a few years ago such a combination was seen only on little kids who had attempted to dress themselves for the first time.

LOL... no, I was just using "beach" as a random example. One would have to be crazy to wear sleeveless tops to our beaches!

(although on a day like today, Santa Cruz is probably warm enough for that)

We will see perfect beach weather this weekend. For once its warm, dry, and sunny in Point Pleasant just like California :

Sadly, mugginess is fast to return and make all of us miserable .

One thing guys should stop obsessing over at the shore is waxing their chests to act as chic magnets. I sometimes think if spending all that time and money is necessary just for a couple beach visits where you will be shirtless cooling off in 68 F water for at most 3 hours.

I dislike such trends for a reason: if you're slim people will say you're stylish. If you're overweight, or even just plump, people will call you nuts, and say you are lacking style.

I can't stand how many clothes are see-through or require layering. I only want to layer when it's -15 out, not when it's a pleasant 75 degrees. The see-through clothes get to me the most. Why is it so difficult to find quality modest clothing? I'm not into the frumpy look, but honestly I am not interested in having people see my bra through my clothes, or giving them a "peekaboo" or wearing long-sleeves shirts over short-sleeved shirts over long-sleeved shirts.

In summertime it's frustrating. I bought these solid color tops from Target which are lightweight and have an okay neckline, but have to wear a specific bra color underneath. When you wear a bra size bigger than a C, it's even worse with necklines.
