The Cutest New Swimsuits For Girls

Our swim brand Seaesta Surf just launched the cutest new swimsuits for little girls. The artwork on the suits was designed by my friend Daniella Manini, who is an incredible artist. I'm a big fan of little girls looking cute and comfy and not having to worry about their suits falling off while they're playing. Our goal was to create something modest and comfortable and I think this suit nails it. The Italian fabric is super soft to the touch and of course dries really well. I'm probably going to have to snag both designs for our little Lizzy to wear once she's big enough! Shop Seaesta Surf Girls Swim.

Summer Beach days With Seaesta Surf + Bink & Boo

If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you may have noticed that summer is my absolute favorite. I was chatting with my bud Bianca from Bink & Boo and we thought it would be super fun to throw a little beach party for all of our local pals to celebrate our mutual love of summer. So Bink & Boo and Seaesta Surf rounded up the local troops and partied out in Cardiff a few weeks ago. It was so much fun, we decided to do it once a month all summer long! 

If you can make it, join us for the next one on 7/21 at Seaside Reef in Cardiff from 10-12! Snacks, drinks, shade, and sunscreen provided!

Seaesta Surf Boardshorts | Spring/Summer 2017

If you're looking for the cutest little (and big!) kids boardshorts around, look no further! The new Seaesta Surf collection is our best one yet! These shorts are perfect for the beach for tiny groms starting at 2T all the way up to about middle school at 26". My personal favorite style this season are the army green "Surf Eat Nap" boardies. My favorite feature is the adjustable drawstring waist since I happen to have a super skinny dude. I love the way our lookbook turned out this year too! We gathered a couple of our fave kiddos (my grom and The Hendrix kiddos) and our bestie Taryn Kent shot all the photo magic!

The Holidays Beach Camping

Last weekend we trekked up to San Clemente for some beach camping with our friends The Holidays. We scored the whole campground to ourselves so we invited a few friends along, The Hendrix Family, The Bink & Boo crew & Dr. Cassidy's babes. This group of kids is our son Gram's favorite little crew so I'm pretty sure his little mind was blown getting to have so much hang time with them!

The Holidays is a camping community in San Clemente with a few fully-stocked vintage trailers you can rent. They're located just up the hill from the beach in a campground area that's near mostly tent campers. 

Our tips for a fun-filled beach camping trip at The Holidays:

  • Book early! Their campground is crazy popular and tends to sell out. You definitely need to plan and book in advance.
  • Better together: if you can reserve a couple of trailers with friends or family, it's a super fun way to get out of town together. If not, you'll probably make fast friends with your fellow campers!
  • Good eats: we did a potluck dinner where everyone brought sides and their own grill items. That made it easier on everyone as far as dietary restrictions. 
  • Get toasty: They have a fire pit that's perfect for nighttime campfire stories and s'mores. Make sure to pack your s'mores roasting skewers and bring firewood to burn!
  • Beach it: You'll probably want to make the trek down the hill to the beach for the day where there isn't much shade so bring a beach umbrella, blanket, towels and lots of sunscreen!

We had so much fun and can't wait to head back again! Thanks to our friends at The Holidays for having us!
