Let me preface by saying I hope the above situation improves before the wedding… For the sake of my wedding dress and the fabulous lingerie my girls showered me with!! And shoutout to my flamingo friend for hiding all that Chanel cake and champagne!!
But… Saturday we spent the day by the über-chic Viceroy pool. It's not one of the day clubs, but instead has a very relaxed yet glamorous atmosphere. Soft music, fruit-infused ice water, and a waiter to bring any cold drinks or dining you may want. It was the perfect atmosphere for some girl talk and our "How Well Do You Know the Bride?" game.
Instead of the typical white bridal bikini, I had to break out my latest palm print one from Target (similar here). I paired it with my favorite Lilly Pulitzer coverup (on SALE right now!!) and bright Ray-Ban sunnies. I don't mind wearing wedges when we're at a nice pool and I want to feel pretty, but I always bring my trusty Jack Rogers along for something comfortable. I got this veil-and-tutu combo on Etsy.
In the late afternoon, we slipped on maxi dresses and skirts and walked to the outdoor retail haven, Third Street Promenade. Live music greeted us and we had a late lunch at the healthy-and-fresh little spot called The Curious Palate. I cannot get enough fresh salads, seafood, and fruit when I'm in California.
I came back to a beautiful bouquet from J waiting for me, which absolutely melted my heart. I wish I could have hauled it home with me on the plane!!
