California Dreamin' Lookbook + Spotify Playlist ☀️


Warm sun, salt breeze, slow living...Malibu feels a world away from the hustle and bustle (and *cough* smog) of Los Angeles. Our muse steps away from the city's chaos to take a summer retreat at a whitewashed beach cottage by the sea. She revels in her peaceful hideaway, taking breaks from reading and writing for a quick dip in the ocean. A quintessential Californian, she lives in soft bikinis from morning to night. In the evening, she tosses on easy vintage-inspired pieces to walk to dinner. Her only commute these days? A stroll down the sand.

Your role at L*SPACE...

Marketing + PR

What’s your Monday-Friday routine like?

In the morning, I usually listen to podcasts while I head from where I live in San Diego to our office in Orange County (worth the trek 😊). Once I’m at the office, there’s never a dull moment - it’s filled with bikinis, idea brainstorming, organizing new brand opportunities and lots and lots of emails. After work, I typically try to get some type of work out in whether it’s the gym, yoga or trying out a new fitness Groupon.

In 3 words, how would you describe your personal style?

Beachy, fashion-forward & functional

What’s your favorite weekend hangout?

I love checking out a good food/drink spot, hanging at the beach or trying a new hike. Luckily the Southern California coast has great places for all of those, so on a really good weekend I try to squeeze in all three.

What are your must-have beauty picks?

I’m a huge coconut oil junkie. I use it on my face, body, hair- everywhere, so anything from Kopari has been a go-to fave for me lately.

How would you describe the L*SPACE girl?

I would say she’s a family-&-friends-first girl, who lives life with a balance of being driven and carefree.

What advice would you give your 17 year-old self?

I spent way too much time worrying about the future, rather than focusing on the present. I would definitely remind her to enjoy the present and that everything works out the way it’s supposed to (which is nice to remind myself even now!)

Your role at L*SPACE...


Describe your typical daily routine...

I typically get up around 5:30 am and hit the gym - my go-tos are cross training workouts with my personal trainer or a cycling class at Grit Cycle. I always try to mix in a little yoga and meditation every week. 

After my workout, I head home, shower, and head off to work. My typical day at the office is filled with playing with bikinis, choosing fabrics and colors, and endless meetings. I am always super busy! After work, I head home and usually do a sunset walk with my boyfriend and pup before we start cooking dinner. Lately, we have been doing a lot of meals from Plated – they are delicious! After dinner is done and the kitchen is cleaned, we usually turn on a movie or read a book before bed.

In 3 words, how would you describe your personal style?

Low maintenance, casual, girly

Where can we find you on the weekends?

My boyfriend and I love traveling on the weekends but when we are home, we are usually spending time at the beach. We live in a great little beach town in South Orange County so hitting the beach is always on the agenda.

How would you describe the L*Space girl?

Motivated, independent, health-conscious but never says no to a good time

Dream vacation spot?

Spain! I hope to take my honeymoon there someday (wink, wink)

Best way to treat yourself?

I treat myself through travel. Anytime I’m feeling a little burned out, I like to book a long weekend trip and explore a new city!

What advice would you give your 17 year-old self?

Don’t be so concerned about what others think about you. It took me a long time to become completely comfortable with my personal style, work ethic, and who I am as a person but, once I did, I found true happiness.
