As a born-and-bred California girl, I’ve lived my entire life with the ocean at my fingertips. The beach has long been my go-to for early-morning runs, sunset picnics, and long playful days with friends. With all that beach time comes the need for a versatile wardrobe—one that can stand endless sun, sand, and waves. I want to look cute when I walk up to my friends, protect my face from the sun while tanning my body, and feel cozy and comfortable as I pack up after a long day spent jumping between the sand and surf. That means lots of sundresses, a selection of hats and sandals, soft sweatshirts, and, of course, an endless supply of swimwear.
