Style + Travel Guide: Pichilemu, Part II Travel Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

I was so in love the vibrant and fun town of Pichilemu that I decided to extend my stay by few days. During this time I was able to explore the other stunning beaches and find more fun surf spots. While walking the dirt roads of Pichilemu I found some awesome places to enjoy a local bite and even some cafes that served tea with an ocean view. The weather along the Chilean coast this time of year is pretty chilly (pun intended!). Because of this, I had to leave the kimonos and shorts at home. Instead I had to find cute, stylish clothes versatile enough for a beach and surf trip in a cold climate. This thermal was perfect for keeping me warm, without comprising style. I threw on some boyfriend jeans and a beanie to complete the look. This outfit was darling while also practical enough for discovering new cafes, stores, and views of my favorite beaches in Pichilemu.

DIY: Yarn Bombed Sandals
Or as I like to call them, my friendship flops, or stringer slippahs for those of the island persuasion. This week’s DIY inspo came from pure logic: rainbows are rad, sandal season, also rad. So, logically speaking of course, rainbow sandals = rad. Yeah, I didn’t just go to school to eat lunch. This 20-minute transformation lets you customize your classics, while adding a little extra cushion to the straps. Get out a pair of rubber flip flops (or leather sandals if you’re feeling fancy)  and let your friendship flag fly.

Since I moved out over a year ago, my visits home with my family are always cherished. Recently we have made it a tradition to celebrate what my dad has dubbed “Salsa Sunday” on a weekly basis. Besides delicious salsa, the day consists of surfing, movies, bike rides, barbequing, chatting around the fire pit, and lots of laughing.
