I'm fairly certain that each and every one of us—no matter how curmudgeonly we get about sand in our toes and wind in our eyes—has a soft spot deep in our soul for the beach. There's something magical about it in the autumn, especially. The crowds have gone home, a chill lingers in spite of the sun, and we have no choice but to build a bonfire and huddle with friends.
So the Planet Blue Fall video lookbook speaks directly to that part of me that cannot resist an October trip to the beach. It's set in Malibu, but for me it brings up fond memories of camping with my family along the Oregon coastline, or toasting marshmallows along the shores of Lake Superior in the Canadian north. Anywhere you have water, a good time is guaranteed, no?
And the clothes. Oh, the clothes! It's layering time, my friends! Planet Blue has perfected that Southern California bohemian beach vibe that I love to mix into my more reserved urban wardrobe. A leather jacket here, a drapey sweater there, then top it all off with some colorful bangles. Even if you don't have seaside fun in your future, the freedom of the surf is just an outfit away!
