Florida Style Diary | Part 2 A Mini Travel + Style Guide with Guest Blogger Leah.

DSC_0944
Toward the end of my stay in Florida we said adios to the beautiful beaches and started cruising the rivers that run through all the homes and islands of Vero Beach.  As you travel along these rivers you find all sorts of unexplored islands and if you’re lucky you can even see manatees swimming underneath you! This floral print skirt was perfect for these warm afternoons spent by the dock. Maxi skirts always look great when paired with a tight crochet crop top, so I went for the halter lace look. And of course everything is better with some boots, especially these ones from Matisse. This look is perfect for water gypsies like me and is also a great outfit to have with the festival season quickly approaching! I plan on whipping this out again for my spring time desert adventures!

SeaMade: The Budget Surf Trip / Baja Edition A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison

SeaMade: ¡Viaje a Baja Norte!

Baja Norte (the northern region of Baja, Mexico for all you gringos) is considered the wild west of Mexico. Countless point breaks, reef breaks, and shore breaks are sure to give you enough paddle time to be arm breakers. Add a ten-story blinking Jesus, donkeys painted like zebras, cha-cha dance offs, vineyards, tacos, tequila, and cantinas and you are sure to get a taste of the real wild west. From my house in Cardiff, I can get to my favorite surf spots and taco stands in less than two hours. It’s hard to believe I’m in such a different element just two hours from home. Read on for tips on Baja travel, surf, eats and more on a budget…

Style + Travel Guide: Santiago, Chile Travel Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Our final stop on our adventure in Chile was Santiago. Santiago is a very modern city with a large population and is completely surrounded by the Andes mountains. From almost every point in the city you can see the snowcapped Andes, which made us excited to get up to the snow! We walked around the city exploring the many sites, restaurants, and one of the largest malls in the world. My favorite outfit during my urban adventures consisted of skinny black jeans, my fringe sweater, and a fedora. This was a casual, yet stylish outfit that was comfortable to walk in and perfect for the cool nights. I love the boho vibe of this sweater and felt it went great with all the brightly colored buildings of Chile.
After a couple days in the city we decided to venture up the mountain and end our trip with snowboarding. We actually managed to drive up the mountain, snowboard until dark, and then hop on our flight home all in one day!
Keep reading for tips on where to sleep in Santiago, shop in the city, and where to snowboard in the Andes! (more…)
