MAKING WAVES

An elegant Summer of business and pleasure

There’s something special about Summer. It’s a carefree time that we all look forward to and in our opinion, there’s no better place to celebrate than in Santa Barbara, California.

Santa Barbara is the epitome of laid-back luxury. It’s one of few towns that effortlessly balances California casual with an understated elegance. Inspired by our cosmopolitan resort town, we caught up on some much-needed rest and relaxation this Summer, wearing our favorite versatile maxi dresses, chic swimwear, and statement-worthy accessories.

And in between our days lounging at Loon Point Beach, we also made waves in the digital sphere. From all new branding and a beautifully customized website, Summer has been a season of transformation. Furthermore, we’re elevating the blog experience with a brand new feature; introducing our seasonal lookbook, a space that offers you a closer look into the pieces we’re coveting and brands we’re swooning over.

Above all, we wear what makes us feel beautiful.

SANTA BARBARA DAYS

Time and time again we find ourselves back at Max Studio to find the next dress to add to our wardrobe. No matter the season, Max Studio offers a great variety of simple silhouettes that are both feminine and comfortable. From maxi dresses, day dresses, evening and silk dresses there are plenty of options for any occasion. This Summer, we chose Max Studio as our go-to for pieces that border on the side of casual sophistication. Their collections of sleeveless dresses and lightweight fabrics made dressing for Summer in Santa Barbara a breeze.

Sand, Surf, and Sea

Our seaside sartorial choices were elevated this season with the introduction of our new favorite beach cover-up. Instead of our usual sarong, we were seen spotted in a chic blazer by Tommy Hilfiger. It’s small anchor detail and pinstripes give a nod to nautical style. Made from a comfortable lightweight material, this blazer pairs well both on and off the beach during the warm weather days. Whether you throw it on over a suit similar to our Becca high neck crochet swimsuit or wear it with your favorite jeans, it’s a great Summer staple.

Beachy Basics

We believe there’s elegance in simplicity and LALI’s easy to wear pieces create a style guide that’s both pretty and practical. LALI garments are designed and manufactured in Australia. Not only do we love this line for its romantic femininity and timeless quality, they are also sustainable and ethical, using reclaimed deadstock fabrics and recycled packaging. The Valerie One-Shoulder Top comes in a beautiful emerald color. It’s relaxed fit, seamless side zipper, and simple shoulder tie make it easy to slip in and out of for those days spent on the water.

Laid Back Living

Santa Barbara’s luxury life is perfectly balanced by its laid-back approach to living. With its moderate temperatures (no matter the season), it’s not uncommon to see locals and tourists alike wearing their favorite summertime finds all year round. So when it comes to days when you want to keep your outfit versatile and functional, start with this easy look – a nice pair of jeans and a simple blouse. Add and remove layers. Dress it up or dress it down. It’s the perfect start to a buildable outfit for a day around town.

Resort Ready

When summertime rolls around there’s always one thing on our mind: lounging. The sun-drenched days of July and August were created for days spent on the water and we’ve been resort-ready in our favorite versatile maxi dresses and chic swimsuits. Most of the time we head to 7 For All Mankind for their premium denim, but they also offer some great warm weather options, including one of our favorite Grecian inspired dresses. It’s a statement piece that we’ve had in our closet rotation for the last two summers. With it’s soft, breathable fabric, you can wear it from one leisurely jaunt to the next.
