On the heels of a getaway out west to celebrate my birthday (it’s a big one, ya’ll!), we are already fantasizing about spending the summer in California with our family. The perfect escape from the Texas heat, every year we dash to my SoCal hometown and savor time with loved ones, afternoons at the beach, cool coastal nights, and even a sunset cruise (or two!) on a Duffy. Endlessly inspired by my west coast childhood and someday craving a beach house of our own, I created a board on Pinterest to house all of my inspiration. Here are just a few of my beachy favorites – I’m in love with the first image from Tory Burch’s Resort 2015 Look Book! – and cheers to the weekend ahead!
