WEST COASTIN’ | SAN LUIS OBISPO A Series On Sand + Sun with Guest Blogger Leah.

Novella Royale
On our long journey home from Big Sur we turned off the marked roads and headed down some less traveled paths. We followed these winding trails until we stumbled upon one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. We spent a few hours exploring the hidden beach and forgotten coastline in San Luis Obispo. I could’ve spent hours gazing at the ocean from one of the many perfect viewpoints we discovered. There is such a feeling of wonder that can only come about from experiencing the little pieces of paradise found on unplanned adventures. I had my beautiful new bells on that were perfect for climbing, finding my footing, and simply standing still to take it all in. While I gazed out at the ocean, sharp cliffs, and climbing foliage I kept the sun out of my eyes with my hat that I swear never comes off my head. Why should it? As it got a little breezier on the cliffs, I wrapped myself in my new printed jacket. Staying chic and comfortable are two things I always plan on no matter what new, spontaneous adventure may come around the corner.

West Coastin’ | Big Sur A Series On Sand + Sun with Guest Blogger Leah.

big-sur6
I can’t really complain about living in Southern California, but sometimes I do wish we were able to see the brilliant fall colors this season showcases. I decided a trip up north would take me to these falls colors and also give me an adventure fix.  So this past weekend I ventured up the coast headed north. With stops in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Cambria we made our way up the narrow roads to Big Sur! We decided to camp – which was chilly but so much fun. Once we pitched our tent we went out to explore what this amazing coastline has to offer. We stopped at McWay Falls, one of my favorite places to visit here and cruised all along the roads stopping in remote places that had the most spectacular views. One thing about going north is it is a little colder than I’m used to, so having some comfy jackets was a must.  Boyfriend jeans are also a perfect camping staple as they slip on easily and make a comfortable and stylish way to keep warm. Here are some snapshots from my adventures and the clothing essentials for a camping trip in Big Sur!

Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

A few last-minute costume ideas that are so good, it’s almost scary. The bonus of shopping for your custom costume kit at SWELL? Your kit will end up in your closet, not the costume box.

The Tin Man (above)
Rig an elastic headband to a metal funnel (or spray paint a plastic one silver) and add it to your metallic base. Luckily, lamé is going to be a big trend this Holiday season, so you’ll get a new party dress and costume in one. Top with an axe.
