This past weekend Anush and I had a little weekend getaway in the charming coastal town of Carmel by the Sea. It is one of my favorite towns and I’ll never ever get bored of its pretty little cafes, quaint streets/alleys, lovely boutiques and gorgeous beaches. Carmel Beach is one of the most iconic spots on California’s Central Coast and its no surprise that it is rated “One of America’s Top Beach Towns.” We have been to Carmel several times but never got a chance to visit Carmel Beach before. And boy was I surprised at the sight of this beach – white soft sands and stunning blue waters, it was so hard to tell that this beach was a Norcal beach! It is handsdown one of the prettiest California beaches I have seen thus far.
For an afternoon at the beach I wore this beautiful Sundress coverup from Coco Isabella Barcelona. I have had my eyes on this beautiful tunic for months and finally got my hands on it :). I love love the fun tassel back! Sundress makes unique fun beachwear like this piece , check out the other fun options here. I wore it over my Mer culture bikini – I adore this boho luxe print and fab fabric + fit of this suit. I finished the look with colorful jewelry from Capwell‘s latest resort collection and my fave starfish sandals from Annie Clare sandals. The bracelets read – Cocktail, vacay , tipsy – too cute! If you’re looking for a roomy and chic beach bag, I highly recommend this one from Isota – it is a great option for both on or off the beach.
And how perfect is this beach umbrella from Beachbrella?! You certainly need this fun beach accessory for the summer, whether you’re having a fun beach day, picnic or even a photoshoot. All the umbrellas are 100% UV protective, is lightweight and hand made. It comes in this includes a fashionable, beach savvy, carrying case made of denim and canvas, which makes it very convenient. My umbrella is now always in my car trunk :), considering Anush and I are always at the beach most weekends! I love the fun print and tassel trim in this particular one – such a cute way to beat the heat, stay cool (and UV protected!) while enjoying some Vitamin Sea.
