California Coast Road Trip Itinerary with Cotton On

After a crazy couple of weeks, I decided to pack up some clothes and go on a road trip up the CA coast with my girlfriends. I used to always think that I needed to plan some elaborate getaway to just free my mind of stressful thoughts and I realized that you can truly just vacation where you live as long as you are with the right pals! You may have seen me in Miami, NYC or around LA with these girls (Kristen, Payton and Molly) and that is because we have sort of grown our blogs together over the years and have supported each other the whole time. We are a group of bleachy-blonde girls who grew up in different cities throughout the US, are in different age brackets and all bring something different to the table. We have a few other girlfriends we spend time with as well but they were not able to join us this weekend.

We packed our bags with the CUTEST Cotton On clothing items, rented a vintage Cadillac convertible and started our day in Santa Monica and ended deep along the coast past Malibu.

Stop 1: Bondi Harvest

We had brunch at this DELICIOUS Australian hideaway called Bondi Harvest and caught up on our weeks of blogger shenanigans; events, brand and boys! Some of our favorite topics ;) Since we were just kicking off our day, I wore a super comfy pink velour jumper set (Top and Bottoms) and sneaks. PS if you go there, try the caveman bowl and a lavender latte with coconut milk. TO DIE FOR.

Stop 2: Paradise Cove

First of all, this place is legit the Hard Rock of the PCH. You dance around in the sand and drink alcohol from the bar there. Yes please J We wanted to park our car there and take some girl gang pics and I am just warning you..we may have packed more outfits than we actually needed. But at least I am able to share different outfit options for you to take if you are going on a longer road trip!

Anywhoo! For this stop I am wearing these black denim jeans and this Merci top. I love how cozy these high-waisted stretch jeans are and I also appreciate that I can wear this shirt to bed and literally roll out and go to a coffee shop and look like a Parisian chic babe.

I got a little chilly and wore this cute rouched-sleeve white sweater and paired it when a black denim mini skirt. Pics below!

Stop 3: Neptune’s Net

FOOD AGAIN. We decided to go to Neptunes for lunch. A super cute place to get fish tacos and fish and chips. And by chips I MEAN FRENCH FRIES. You guys know how much I love my fries and they are DELISH here. For this stop I wore something a little more dressed up and picked this chambray dress and paired with some fringe heels. The dress is perfect for an afternoon brunch or dress it up with a blazer for an elevated casual Friday look.

Stop 3: PCH Frolics and Rosenthal Winery

To recover from our fried fish food comas, we went for walk by PCH and stumbled upon Rosenthal winery. We shot some pics outside and I may or may not have strolled through there to find groups of good looking people everywhere just sitting around having wine. Sounds like my type of place to go to on a Saturday!! CALLING ALL MY SINGLE LADIES!

Here I was wearing this super cute California striped tee and high-waisted ripped boyfriend jeans. I shot a few fun looks..see below!

Stop 5: Will Rogers State Beach

After grabbing a few pics there I changed into the coziest knit sweater and stayed in my high-wasted denim jeans and we walked across the road to Will Rogers State Beach. We even packed a cute blanket and were all ready for a little sunset picnic.

I had the BEST day with my gals and it was so much fun having us all style these cute Cotton On clothes to match our own aesthetics. Isn’t that what is so great about clothes? Every person looks different and unique in their own way in it. Speaking of, with the holidays around the corner, Cotton On has tons of great clothing items and accessories to gift your love ones too :)

Hope you enjoyed my day recap and it hope it motivates you to grab your friends and plan a road trip!

If you end up following our itinerary and want to go further north, I suggest stopping in Santa Barbara for some vino and snacking on main street, going to Paso Robles and checking out the wineries there. Next go to Hearst castle and do the tour, Big Sur, Carmel and of course going to San Francisco if you have time!

It is Friday, just got done with a blowout and I am ready to get some work done, run the longest list of errands and start the weekend. I am really into a good pair of high waisted denim but sometimes it is hard to find a pair that works for me. I am petite, have a decent size toosh and a mid-sized (subjective) waist. Usually they are too tight on the bum and super loose on the legs, or the opposite, which sometimes I don't mind because it leaves room around my stomach for donuts and pasta :) The jean struggle is real, but I finally found a pair that I felt like were made for me. That was until I asked my 3 other friends who also own similar pairs from the same brand, Re/Done jeans, and they all said the same thing. So whatever magic these people have going on with their jean creations..keep them coming. Officially a customer.

Ok besides the jeans, I paired them with a sleek and sheer top I got from HERE, and this super cute suede jacket I got from HERE. What I like about this outfit is I can wear it during the day and into the night as well, just lose the jacket when you walk inside somewhere warm and throw on some cool tasseled earrings, like these ONES

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend! I am doing my taxes and packing so wish me some luck and lots of vino!

Rebecca Minkoff Fashion Show + a Giveaway

I am SO excited about 2 things today a) getting to share the highlights of the Rebecca Minkoff Fashion Show with you that happened right in my backyard practically in LA b) partnering with GE Lighting x Rebecca Minkoff on their light up gorgeous rose gold selfie case and bulbs that I get to giveaway to one of my readers! LOVE THAT!! 

The show was about women's empowerment, which is something I hold near and dear to my heart. I loved the message, I loved the clothing and definitely all of the accessories.

Prior to the show we started off with a little champagne, tea and macaroons and the lovely Laduree. Was so much fun bonding with my other blogger gal pals and playing with our new Rebecca Minkoff x GE Lighting selfie cases.

I wanted to share a look that I found to be perfect for you busy ladies! Personally, I am traveling CONSTANTLY for work. It is either that I have a meeting 3 hours away from my house (6 hours of driving roundtrip...yuck!) or I have to fly somewhere for work-work or for blogland. I love the ability to get out of the house and have the opportunities to see different cities, but I must admit, the getting ready at 4AM to get to meeting pre-traffic or the airport for same day roundtrip travel is just tough sometimes. I partnered with my Clarins family and found some products that I fell in love with from their line. I wanted to show you how I put it all together in flight for my look pictured above. I literally got off the plane and went into a full days of meetings in SF and straight to dinner after with my gal pals from work. I used a spray to keep my makeup in place afterwards which really helped keep the whole look together.

THE BREAKDOWN!

Totally interested in hearing your opinion! I worked in collaboration with Clarins on this sponsored post, but the look and the aesthetic was chosen by myself. OBVIOUSLY :) 

Get these pieces below so you look like you "woke up like this" without having to put on a TON of makeup.
