OCEAN HAVEN : A Day with LoveStitch

OCEAN HAVEN : A Day with LoveStitch

Among the coastline of Laguna, time seems to sit still…

A sense of peace, a sense of belonging, and a sense of calm transcends space and time. From the busy hustle of Los Angeles, Laguna beach is an ode to the reminder that simple truly is better.


Everything about this day on the coast was easy…from the parking, to the people we met, to the clothes I wore. As I’ve grown, I find true bliss in dressing for comfort. My love for beachy pieces and comfort has been captured perfectly by the designs of LoveStitch.


I have found that I have an affinity for white; ivory, cream, pearl, eggshell, custard, you name it. White is worn by spiritual leaders as it attracts positive energy and inspires thoughts of simplicity and purity. Although I still love throwing on a leopard print ensemble, there is truly something calming in dressing all in white. I loved pairing the simple ribbed tank with a pair of flowing Tie Front off white pants. The high slit and embroidery gives it an effortlessly bohemian feel, perfect for a day at the beach.

Paired with an oversized a hand loomed tote in aztec inspired colors or this adorable wooden hand bag, this outfit felt like the perfect welcoming party for the opening of the summer season. I love that this bag is big enough for all my beach essentials - towel, books, water bottle, snacks, plus a change of clothes for after beach dinner and drinks.


Speaking of dinner and drinks, my favorite way to do a casual date night is with a flowy max dress. I have always been a dress girl, and I love that a maxi skirt plays up my curves while keeping me comfortable and cool. This sexy lace trimmed dress in rust goes from day to night and brings our my naturally olive skin. Paired with a straw belt and matching straw hat, I feel like I’m dancing through the streets of Tuscany.
