Summer is right around the corner for us Orange County locals and I couldn’t be happier. I grew up by the beach so I was always the girl rockin’ jean shorts and flip flops whenever I could. Now that I’m a mom, I wanted to refine my style a little without losing the casual OC vibe.
I’m the kind of woman that wants “effortless.“ I want to be comfortable all day long. I don’t want to worry if my boob is gonna pop out if I’m picking Cash off the ground, worry that my hair is in my face, or kill my feet from the pain of uncomfortable shoes. I just want to be COMFY!
There are ways to be comfortable AND put together while running around town all day. Don’t mistake comfortable for “hot mess.” Just because I want to be comfortable doesn’t mean I’m going to grab my big ugly sweats and a baggy t-shirt. NO, just NO!
I have long, thick, curly hair that’s a dream when it’s blown dry but with the amount of working out I do, I can’t justify the hour long styling process of blowing it dry.
My solution: Braids + Buns. There are so many variations of braiding and buns that really refine messy bedhead in a snap.
I got my hair styled from Blown Away Beauty Bar in Laguna Niguel, CA. Susan gave me some upside down boxer braids with dual space buns on top. I got so many compliments on my hair that I’m definitely trying this style out at home!

As for my clothes, I want effortless. I want to know that if I ate too much food my belly won’t be showing, I’m not constantly checking to see if a boob is out, and I know that my shoes aren’t going to be killing my feet by the end of the day.
My solution: My favorite clothing company, prAna. Their clothes are consistently soft and stylish. I love knowing when I buy their products they are made with sustainable materials and last wash after wash.
My personal favorites are:
The sandals are Rainbow’s, which I’ve owned throughout my life and they last forever!
