A Day At Paradise Cove Beach Malibu–moncler hat


A Day At Paradise Cove Beach Malibu

One of the biggest advantages of living in Los Angeles is the fact that it is surrounded by beautiful beaches along the Pacific Ocean.  Even though we do not live right next to the beach,moncler pet we are only about an hour drive away from beautiful beach cities like Malibu and Santa Monica.  On the flip side,outlet moncler since a lot of our beach areas are world famous,veste moncler they get extremely busy especially on the weekends during summer months.  During the week,moncler hats it gets more manageable,moncler usa so every now and then,cheap moncler jackets we will try and take a day off and head out to the beach.

Last week was our ten year anniversary.  We had planned different things throughout the week and one of the things involved treating ourselves to a day at Paradise Cove beach Malibu.  This is a private beach located in Malibu.  Malibu is the “brand name” of all the beaches in the Los Angeles area.  One of the reasons for this is the 21 mile strip of prime Pacific coastline which is home to many Hollywood movie stars and executives,moncler jakker making it one of the most expensive areas to live in Southern California.  Malibu has many different public beaches,moncler trainers but we like Paradise Cove because it’s secluded and has all the amenities you need right there. It can also get very busy on weekends which is why we decided to go midweek to miss the crowds.  It has its own seafood restaurant called Paradise Cove Café,moncler men which serves breakfast,moncler cap lunch and dinner all day. You can also bring your own picnic and cooler with drinks onto the beach which is great.  Additionally, the beach offers cabanas and beds that you can rent, which are very convenient.  Parking is $40.00 a day which is expensive but if you only stay four hours and eat at the restaurant, you only pay $6.00.  Some people also park on the side of Pacific Coast Highway and walk in for $20.  It is a little expensive but once you are settled in, it feels like you are away on vacation somewhere and it is all worth it.

We had planned to get there for brunch and walk around a bit before changing into our bathing suits and relaxing for the rest of the day. For my outfit in the morning, I decided to wear another one of my all time favorite jackets,  I decided to wear it over my tank top and shorts because it was still a little chilly in the morning.  This white eyelet summer jacket was part of my clothing line I had many years ago called “Nora Minas”, this cute lightwewight jacket never goes out of style and every summer I keep wearing it because I love it so much.  I am wearing it here with my denim shorts, white tank top and my new black gladiator sandals.  Throw on some cute jewelry and a fabulous hat and you are good to go to the beach in style.

After our brunch and taking the blog pictures, I turned off all electronics (except for my music) and enjoyed my day off in the sun at the beach.

How about you, are you taking some valuable time off to spend at the beach?
