One of the best parts about living in California? Any weekend can instantly become a staycation. With all the travel I have been doing the past few months, I wanted to take some time to enjoy where I actually live but still go on a little getaway. Blake and I headed off to Malibu for a day of sun and salty air. We headed out early to miss all that beach traffic and headed to our first stop: Malibu Pier. Whenever I head out to Malibu I truly feel like I am on an island somewhere. It’s quiet and you are surrounded by the rocky cliffs speckled with vibrant flowers. I love to grab a glass of rosé and an appetizer at Malibu Farm at the end of the pier.
Dressing for the beach is all about smart resort wear. You want to be polished and have an effortless feel to your look. Because who knows if you are headed to cocktails or to go walk with the sand beneath your toes. I am happy to bring you todays look in collaboration with one of my favorite jewelry brands, LAGOS. Love that LAGOS pieces are perfect for my work days AND a little weekend getaway to the beach. All I have been wearing lately are little white dresses and this cotton number is the perfect wrap dress to be nice and breezy. Adding jewelry to such a classic dress is the just what you need to polish your look. For me, I love to stack a pile of silver bangles to add some great texture with my cotton dress. The pops of blue, teal, and purple echo the beautiful color tones of the sea. Love that they give me the perfect subtle punch of color my look was desperately needing. When it comes to rings, I also love to stack them and LAGOS has some great stacking rings! See a theme here? These two delicate bands work so well on the same finger. Love the texture it creates.
After my stop at the pier, it was off to hit the sand. I always carry beach blankets in my car for this reason. The day was spent snapping Polaroid photos and hanging out with my hubby. Sometimes the most simple of getaways are the best. Where do you guys go to for your staycation spots? Would love to know! I am also excited to be hosting a Summer Sweepstakes with LAGOS where you could have a chance to win some beautiful jewels for your next trip. Full details on how to enter here. Good luck!
