When I really start to think about it, there are probably about a thousand reasons why I love where we live. Obviously, living a couple of blocks from the beach is a crazy perk that I never really expected in my life and ranks somewhere around number one. Getting my exercise along the Pacific Ocean is something that never gets old. Other favorites would be the beautiful SoCal weather, palm trees everywhere, and Massimo’s Pizza a neighborhood away. Seriously, I could always go for a slice, and this place is dee-lish.
I recently realized yet another reason I love this place though. We seriously have some of the cutest little shops and boutiques around, and great new stores are popping up all the time. It’s greaaat for my wardrobe, not so much for my wallet. Sometime around Christmas I seriously fell for the shops and restaurants and overall cuteness at Lido Marina Village, and recently, I found a new favorite, favorite shop there.
Holy moly, have you guys been into Amour Vert? Well if you haven’t, then this is a PSA to get your butt into that store. It’s seriously the cutest. The name means “green love” and they’re devoted to creating beautiful, sustainable fashion using American manufacturing, non-toxic dyes, and a zero waste mentality. For every tee sold, Amour Vert plants a tree, and so far, they’ve planted over 130,000 of them. Not bad, right? Oh, and those tees? The softest, comfiest, best tees that you’ll want to live in.
Besides the beyond yummy tees and this denim dress that I’ve just added to my cart, I love love all of Amour Vert’s silk pieces. The fabric is a bit thicker than the average Joe’s silk which means that when I packed this dress recently for a trip to Palm Springs, it didn’t arrive like a crumpled, wrinkled mess. Always a win in my book. If you live in the Orange County area, then GO to this store, and if you don’t, allow me to direct you right over here to get your online shop on. Have a great rest of your week, y’all!
