beach day

in my bag: palos verdes beach day

in my bag // palos verdes // smitten studioEvery weekend we can, we pack up the car and head to one of the beautiful beaches up or down the coast. While we only live within spitting distance from Venice Beach, I love the rocky (and less crazy town) beaches in Palos Verdes and Malibu.  Here’s what I pack for a picture perfect day at the beach.

in my bag: day at the beach

dayatthebeach-smittenstudioI’ve never been a huge fan of the traditional red, white, & blue combination, so this 4th of July I am going to take some liberties with the old glory colors and tweak them a bit. Who says you have to be soo matchy matchy with the stars and stripes to show your patriotism anyhow? Come Thursday you will find me on the beach in my *pink, white, & blue (and a little black) celebrating our independence and the great country we call home.
