Sun & Fun in Laguna Beach

Last week Eddie and I visited our old stomping grounds for some Laguna Beach fun! I went to college in Orange County and my friends and I used to love exploring this gorge city in our free time. Eddie was born and raised in Orange County, so it's his home. Even though we're still super close being in LA, (just a 50 minute drive south from us depending on traffic) I hadn't had a Laguna day in years. Crazy! I think it's easy to get comfortable where you live, so much so that a lot of times you'd rather stay local than drive a bit - especially with our SoCal traffic. I've been trying to take a lot more day trips this summer though, to get out of our lil West LA bubble. Keep scrolling to see some of the fun places we visited in Laguna!

Brown's Park is the tiniest lil park you ever did see, but it has magnificent views of the ocean! Also, obsessed with this jungley dress from Urban Outfitters. The perf flowy number for a summer day.

How amaze is La Casa del Camino? This magical courtyard instantly transported me back to Spain. The hotel also has a fab Rooftop Lounge, we ate yummy snacks and sipped delish cocktails with a gorge ocean view.

After all that shopping it was time for some beach fun! Treasure Island is absolutely gorgeous (but what part of Laguna isn't, honestly). Also, the water was suuuuper sweet - warm and clear! Some LA beaches can be quite dirty, so it's v v nice to visit the amaze beaches in OC.

This PacSun swimsuit was a must-buy for me. I'm all about the palm leaf prints, if you couldn't tell. LOL.

Our last stop was Heisler Park to watch the sunset. And boy, was it dreamy.
