Carry Me Back to California: Swish Suits Hikes Santa Monica


We might travel the globe and live all over the world, but the Swish Team feels like California Girls at heart.  We love the sand, surf, sun, and the easy breezy way of life that is endemic to the California Coast. Swish Tree Huggers


As all of you who read this blog or occasionally tune into our social media channels know, we recently participated in the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge for the Golden Globes.  Because we love California so much, we managed to stretch this into a two week trip complete with New Year's Eve in Beverly Hills.

While the Hills are all kind of swanky, the ocean and mountains will always have our heart so we quickly packed up post New Year's and headed to Santa Monica for some beach time and hiking.


One of our favorite hikes was the Temescal Canyon Loop which starts climbing upwards with stunning canyon views and ends with ocean and bluff views.  It is a moderately challenging hike and absolutely stunning!

Of course, being swishies, we had to stop off for some spontaneous yoga. . .


On the cliffs, on a bridge, in a field. . .  We just cannot help it!


Our little escape to Santa Monica was the perfect precursor to all the glitz and glamour of the Golden Globes Style Lounge.  Chelsea is back in snowy Chicago now while I am hanging out and blogging in New York.  Although we might be far away, we will keep rocking our pink swish crop tops and being California girls at heart!
