Today's Everyday Fashion: California Girl

I tweeted the other day: "There is way more to life than fashion, but you also can't go through life without getting dressed." Leave the house without clothes = you will get arrested. :-) That said, we've all had those days when you are running around and need to just throw something on. My strategy is to save time by not doing my hair, putting on a trusty pair of denim shorts or jeans, and a fun t-shirt. I added these beach-y necklaces and off I went! Not the most glamorous or put-together I've ever looked, but "California-girl casual" is one of my favorite types of outfits, and definitely my go-to when I'm in a rush. What is your strategy for getting dressed quickly?
