AEO Laguna Beach Travel Guide

Laguna Beach is absolutely one of my favorite places in Southern California. From its beautiful crystal clear beaches to its abundant art and music scene, it is definitely a locale to put on your travel list. Lauren, MK and I went on a day trip to explore the town, its beautiful scenery and all the culture it has to offer.

AEO Laguna Beach Travel Guide

We started with a short hike to Table Rock, a beach with a beautiful little cove. The weather was amazing and we explored the area and had some fun before we headed to The Montage Resort. Just below the resort was another beach cove and we took the opportunity to snap some photos before we grabbed lunch at La Sirena.

Next up was a fun little flower shop named Browne’s Flowers. One of the best things about California is the abundance of fresh flowers and flower shops. After snagging a few bouquets we headed down the road to Main Beach. With amazing views including a Gazebo perched on top of one of the many sea cliffs it’s no wonder this is one of the most popular beaches in Laguna.

We rinsed the sand off our feet and were off to our third beach of the day, Crescent Bay. This is one of my favorite areas in Laguna. Perched up on the cliffs we took in the majestic views of turquoise colored water, white beach sand, and countless tall palm trees making it one of the most amazing photo spots.

We drove along the coastline to Newport Coast for ice cream at B.Candy. With its bright and vibrant exterior you can’t miss it! With ice cream cones in hand, we continued along the coast and had to stop when we saw a gorgeous bright orange old school VW bus. We chatted up the owner as he talked about the hard work he had put into restoring it. Talk about the ultimate road trip vehicle!

Our day was coming to a close but we couldn’t leave Laguna without having dinner at Brussels Bistro.

How To Wear The Cross Front Pullover Sweater With That Girl Gick

Late winter and early spring temperatures often times leave us scratching our heads as to how we’re going to get dressed in the am. Mornings are often cold and afternoons can quickly become warm depending on where you live, plus you never know when a snowfall will hit. That’s why we’re thankful for layers! Thida from That Girl Gick masters the layering technique with our super soft and comfortable Cross Front Pullover Sweater. With a mock neck silhouette and edgy detailing, this sweater is your go-to for transitioning your #AEOSTYLE from winter to spring. Get to know Thida and the inspiration behind her look below.

How To Wear The Cross Front Pullover Sweater With That Girl Gick

Meet Thida: “Hi, my name is Thida (pronounced TEE-da), a fashion blogger from www.ThatGirlGick.com. Where does the name, Gick, come from? Well, it’s my Thai nickname. Most Thais have very long names and nicknames just make everyone’s life easier.

I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I believe anyone can ‘look like a million bucks’ without having to break the bank. Pairing high fashion with inexpensive items is one of my styling methods. Thankfully, the Internet and social media have given me the opportunity to express myself and connect with you all.”

How To Wear The Cross Front Pullover Sweater With That Girl Gick

What Inspired Thida’s Look: “When I wear any sweater I think of comfort. I wanted this look to be fun, cute, and comfy, yet versatile enough for a night out. Here I layered up by wearing the sweater over a light-colored turtleneck and accessorized with a beanie for the casual look. The mustard boots in turn compliment the deep-plum sweater.”
