This past weekend my cousin and blog photographer, Ryan, moved right onto to the beach, so I got to spend some time in the sand! Though the water is still too cold (for me!) to swim, the temperatures are heating up in Newport Beach and with my brother, mom, and dad coming into town Wednesday, I know we’ll be spending lots of time when I’m not working reading on the beaches in CDM or down the street from my cottage on Balboa.
I’ve been looking for a new cover-up for a while now, and finally found one on Saturday while shopping in Lido Village. This Lover’s Wish Dress is both comfy and reasonably priced and I know it’s one I’ll reach for over and over again. Some other similar options are here and here.
I also discovered two beach bag brands last year when searching for wardrobe pieces to style my main character, Gianna, in in the video clips found in Waiting at Hayden’s: Hat Attack and Mar y Sol. Both these brands carry bags that are stylish and large enough to fit all your books and snacks, and this one here that I got last year is currently on sale.
I’ve included more of my favorite cover-ups and bags below. And, coming to the blog, I’ll be talking about my latest beach reads as well as sharing all my favorite lines from Daisy Jones & The Six (a must-read if you have an interest in celebrities and love stories!).
