Vegan coconut ice cream, pineapples, surfing, new freckles, long walks on the beach and mangos. These are just a few of our favorite summer time things. Our minds have been on the beach for quite some time, especially as a West Coast-based team. Coming from Brazil, spring temperatures haven’t quite been swim worthy, but California summer time rays definitely do the trick. Although we are a home-based team, getting out to the beach isn’t always as easy as you think. Between ordering and receiving new ethical product, to marketing, fulfilling orders and content, we’ve got quite the busy work day Monday to Friday (sometimes Monday to Monday!). That being said, there’s always time for planning out beach weekend getaways. Whether just a day trip or a weekend-long road trip, the excitement can certainly motivate us to get to the weekend as fast as possible.
As we all start to plan out each weekend getaway, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite places to cruise to on the West Coast, styled head-to-toe in eco-friendly fashion. Check out our list below!
Favorite West Coast Beach Getaways
Renata - Co, Founder, Financial Hero
Favorite Beach Getaway: Huntington Dog Beach
"As a Pet Mom, it’s perfect for spending all day long with my two girls, Mandi and Inca. They can have so much fun, and I love to see them running and playing with their friends!”
Felipe - Co, Founder, Marketing Master
Favorite Beach Getaway: Leo Carrilo, El Matador, County Line & El Pescador
“I love the beaches of the Malibu area! They are the wildest here in greater LA and I like that. Always empty with great waves, perfect for a recharge from the craziness of the city.”
Jazzmine Raine - Social Media & Blog Guru
Favorite Beach Getaway: Venice Beach
“As a Canadian, I’m always up for Venice beach! Even if it’s just for a weekend. There’s nothing better than landing in LAX, stepping out to smell the fresh California air, knowing at all times, you’re just minutes from a beach. Venice has so much to offer, and 101 ice cream flavours between Ben and Jerry’s and the local finds along the strip. Sitting for hours sprawled out with a good book, some tunes, and goodies - priceless”.
Styling your Getaway
Our collection from Guilla Brazil comes from the beach country itself, known for scandalous bikinis, golden sand and blue waters. Guilla is all about keeping your body and the ocean fresh. Each piece is made using Neopower, a hot water system using 100% solar energy, lined with aloe vera moisturizer and UV 50+ protection to keep you safe in the sun. Regardless of your beautiful body shape, each sports bra-styled top keeps you well supported, both top and bottom made with high elasticity.
As West Coasters, we love a good road trip, and Savidge’s Head West hat says it perfectly. Savidge goes miles beyond just a purchase as well, empowering those in need, from providing meals to those who have for far too long gone hungry, to bike relief and national park conservation programs.

This American vintage piece by Trixie Fix is decorated with upcycled Thai Hmong textiles handmade here in the USA! Available in black, brown and camo.
You can never go wrong with vegan leather and cork - stylish, sustainable and strong. We love our Pixie Mood and Artelusa tote bags for beach days. All products are PETA approved cruelty-free and the perfect size for carrying your beach needs - sunnies, towels, goodies and more!
Our trendy, round Fair Seas Supply Co. towels are made from 100% GOTS certified organic Turkish cotton and couldn’t be cuter for spreading out on the beach for the day. The Nantucket is our pastel pink, while The Newport is our pastel blue and San Francisco, our pastel grey.
