This was definitely one of the highlights during my Californian adventure, I had been to the beaches in L.A before and driven across the Pacific Coast Highway but never stepped foot onto Malibu and when I did I stopped to ask myself, what exactly took me so long? Forget Venice or Santa Monica. They're great and special in their way but El Matador beach is definitely in a league of it's own. I feel like I nearly got taken by the waves and splashed over and over but it was an adventure. We left the beach scruffed from climbing up and down the large rocks and exploring the sea caves, soaked from the tumultuous waves. I didn't get dressed especially for this but it just seemed to all fit perfectly into place. I love that a jumpsuit like this was the perfect balance for casual and something a little more dressy with the right amount of accessories and the right footwear. I wore this with flats and a huge hat while exploring the Malibu beaches and it just was a lovely way to spend a Friday evening. I've never been a beach holiday person, I love fast-paced big cities, skyscrapers and the bright lights rather than a slow, relaxing holiday. Or maybe I have never had the right company to experience something like that but I've always had a very special relationship with the sea for as long as I've known it. The ocean not only gives me peace but a sense of adventure and wonder. It gives me clarity and has given me greater courage and resilience to go after the things I love and believe in because look at it- in all it's amazement, it is unimaginable how vast the oceans and beaches of this world are and what they are capable of. As cliche as it sounds, the sea truly is a force to be reckoned with and I love it whenever I am close to it. I guess being a city girl, it's the perfect balance for me when I do make the trip out to be with the ocean. What does the ocean mean to you?

 If you're in Los Angeles, make sure you make the trip down and watch the sun set from the upper cliffs of the beach, the view was definitely one I would never forget and the light, the light! It was amazing and left me at a loss for words. I love you, Malibu!
