Last week, I took a much-needed PTO day, hopped aboard a catamaran in Newport Beach and set sail to Catalina Island (you can read my outfit post here). Most SoCal locals know Catalina as the mountainous piece of land you can sometimes see off the coast on those rare smog-free days. However, to my surprise, most haven’t visited it. The last time I had was over 10 years ago, before I even lived in L.A., so I was due for a trip.
I’m not usually one to wear vibrant colors and prints, but when the weather starts warming up, I can’t help but gravitate towards the tropical pattern play that’s hanging in every store window. There’s just something about a summer floral that puts a smile on my face and makes me feel like I’m on vacation, even if I’m stuck in front of the computer at work.
