Castle On The Beach

indah dress
My love for teepees started when I was a young girl. As far back as I can remember, if the surf was good and the sun was out, my dad would take my sister and I out of school a little early and drive us down to the beach. He would run into the water for a surf and leave the two of us to explore the untouched coastline. This particular beach break washed ashore various types of driftwood and pieces of bamboo. We would then spend the afternoon collecting, planning, and engineering the perfect teepee. Once built, it would turn into our own castle on the beach where we could sit and watch the crashing waves. I guess I never gave up this love for my little fort and so recently I created my very own teepee that I bring with me to the beach – it is quite humorous watching how people respond to me building a teepee on the beach. This past week, I wore this fun maxi dress on my teepee adventures and blinged it out with these amazing bracelets and necklace. This getup is perfect for any upcoming summer weddings, parties, or if you are just in need of a moment of peace, and decide to go sit in a teepee like me.

Suitable for Summer Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Although summer in California means warm sand and sunny skies, it doesn’t always guarantee the luxury of warm ocean water. So when I am planning on spending all day in the ocean I find that it’s a good idea to have something strong enough to keep me warm in the ocean whether I am snorkeling, surfing, or just floating out to sea, but also light enough to allow me to float, dive, and jump to my feet seamlessly. I love this wetsuit as it is not as restricting or nearly as hot as a full wetsuit. It’s perfect for quickly slipping into as you head out to the water. And as fall quickly approaches this suit will stick around through the warm fall days and help make the transition into winter water temperatures a little bit smoother.

Find Me At The Flea Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Not very many things motivate me enough to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning, in fact I think the flea market is the only event I’m all for waking up early on the weekend. This past weekend I wandered around the Long Beach antique market in search for unique pieces to add to my home and wardrobe. I fall in love each time with everything from old worn top hats to mid century furniture. The market is a great way to spend a summer day – but be careful because it is also a very easy and fun way to spend lots of money! The sun always seems to beat down on the crowds as they meander through the aisles, so I wore a hat and kimono to keep the sun off. A simple pair of denim shorts, tank, and sandals made me stay both comfortable and stylish as I walked around. With an outfit as trendy and eclectic as the setting, and a variety of vintage goods, quirky treasures, it was impossible to not have a good time. So next Sunday wake up early and I promise you that the flea market will not disappoint!

Ready for the 4th Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

As soon as the 4th of July comes around I am always too busy at the beach, buying fireworks, and finding a way to stop by every fun party happening in that one day, that the choosing of my outfit is pushed back until the night before. I am always a bit disappointed afterwards, wishing I would’ve put more style into my fourth outfit. This year I was determined to get a head start on my 4th of July getup and pick clothes that are not only stars and stripes, but can be worn for all the summer adventures to come soon after.
