Dramatic Curves Ahead

As you drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, magnificent views of land and sea appear around every curve in the road.  Golden sunlight pours over the Santa Lucia mountains and frolics with rollicking waves, while onshore breezes sail across the ocean and into your soul with every ravenous breath.  Luxuriate in the fresh air and pure sunlight for as long as it takes to recharge your solar power.  





Preserving traditional craft in Ethiopia, this cover-up robe is handwoven by local artisans with tibeb patterning and hand-twisted fringe at the hem. Style Name: Lemlem Neela Short Cover-Up Robe.

Reduce the drama in your life with a coastal getaway that prioritizes fun in the sun. Count on Seafolly, the swimwear experts from Australia, to make swimsuits with clever support for active recreation on the West Coast.  Bold prints like Sun Dancer are a perfect match for your competitive spirit that demands a sporty fit. Or, try the aptly named Sol Searcher Volley Shorts from Billabong, made for running, jumping, and enhancing your game.

Increase the pizazz in your summer wardrobe with vivid combinations of tropical colors.  The Electric Reef one-piece by Trina Turk hugs every curve with a daring design that features a dramatic v-neck and a bright neon print placed to accentuate your waist.  Farm Rio adds Brazilian flair with flamboyant prints that are a feast for your eyes.  Jungle motifs of toucans and bananas are whimsical and sweet to keep you focused on la vida divertida.  If it’s poolside lounging you desire, double your fun with Lemlem’s handwoven robe and Lena string bikini.  The unique prints are inspired by traditional Ethiopian Tibeb art.
