Journey with Javvy to LA: Santa Monica

I had an incredible stay over the weekend at the Le Meriden Delphina in Santa Monica, CA. For those of you that do not know, Santa Monica is a charming beach town in Los Angeles County. For the 4th of July, my boyfriend and I decided a stay-cation was absolutely needed so we booked an ocean view room and decided to explore a city that we already knew very well as a tourist. 

We were greeted with champagne upon our arrival and upgraded to a beautiful super mod room. A perk of staying at the hotel was that you are able to use their beach cruiser bikes for free! We took full advantage of that and rode our bikes on the boardwalk through main street where we had delicious ramen at Jinya and picked up some lattes at Urth Caffe. 

As far as fashion goes, I wanted to incorporate red, white and blue into my outfit, so instead of stamping our wonderful flag on my body, I opted for a classy approach by wearing this gorgeous New Friends Colony beaded dress that has those 3 colors incorporated in it. Their clothes are so fashion forward and very chic. I cannot wait to shop for more of their pieces on Revolve Clothing.

I ended our stay-cation by giving myself a mini spa session in my comfy hotel robe using the hydrating facial mask by SkinLaundry. That mask just takes 15 minutes out of your day but it provided me a glow that my skin needed after all of the fun in the sun I had.
