I feel like people tend to assume that California beaches are extremely hot and have perfect temperature weather. Sorry to pop your bubble but Northern California beaches are pretty chilly. In fact, you are more likely to see someone wearing a hoodie and sweats than a bathing suit.
You can never go wrong with a kimono at the beach. It basically makes a cute outfit and keeps you semi warm when the breeze kicks in. I personally need to accessorize at the beach which is why I opted to wear my super cute necklace from Rocksbox.
Also if you want to start singing Brian Hyland's Itsy Bitsy Blue polka dot bikini knock yourself out. I sang the song inside my head the whole day while wearing my bikini top.
