West Cliff Drive

Cuyana Summer Hat / Indah Penda Maxi Dress c/o Swim Outlet / Ray Ban Clubmaster Shades

Since we came home from Maui, we’ve found ourselves at the beach a few times. It gets us out of the heat and into the cool ocean breezes. This is one of my favorite spots along West Cliff Drive, a little farther away from the busier spots. I love flowy dresses like the one I’m wearing from Swim Outlet because they are so easy to throw on over a swimsuit, and leave plenty of room to sprawl out in the sand without getting sand everywhere. This one just feels so light and airy, though I will say that it does run quite large. You can shop the look above.

  8. I love this look & the photography is amazing! Literally…amazing and makes me want to go to the beach right now. I was recently in LA but we only went to the beach at night on evening and I didn’t have a chance to go during the day based on our plans. Missing the beach more and more everyday so it’s definitely something I need to get back to. Anyway…I like to wear shorts, sandals I don’t care about “ruining” with sand, and a loose tee with a bathing suit underneath! xx

  9. This looks so gorgeous!! Wishing I could be wearing that white dress on that beach right now. <3
