Try this Trend: Surfs Up

For me, surf and beach culture has been more about a way of life than a fashion trend. From high end surf shops to boutique hotels and designers inspired by surfer girls- lately it's been embraced by the fashion industry more than ever. Though I'm thousands of miles from the nearest ocean, I'm still a surfer girl at heart!
These are a few of my fave occurrences of surf & fashion colliding:

I also stumbled upon this island-y MGMT x Bob Marley mashup that I wanted to share; it's the perfect tune for driving around the causeway with windows rolled down and wind in your hair.



Have you ever been surfing?

I used to surf in high school but haven't in a long time. One of my New Year resolutions is to surf again.

I think the surfer trend looks interesting! Teen Vogue was talking about not to long ago on their site! I'm not sure if I could pull of a surfer-inspired look.

I'm a surfer girl at heart, too! The Roxy collection is my favorite, it's so bright and fun.

I LOVE this post! I have a surf board, and I've attempted to surf, but I wouldn't really call myself a surfer haha.
