Malibu, CA, USA

Winter Heat Wave

This past weekend we made the drive out to Malibu to get some bone-in ribeye from our favorite steak restaurant, Mastro's. We've gone to the Beverly Hills location before (which is super dark and kind of cramped) but figured we would check out the ambiance at the Ocean Club location which we've always driven past whenever we drive up Pacific Coast Highway. I thought that there might be a chilly breeze by the ocean and brought along a chunky sweater, but the weather was unseasonably warm. So, we spent some time by the beach watching surfers catch some waves.

I kept my outfit very simple by reaching for the classics that never let me down. I haven't been shopping much lately so sometimes it's hard to come up with a new outfit without a particular piece to build around. I've had this denim shirt from Madewell forever and it still gets a lot of love from me. Also my favorite black skinnies from Gap, which considering that I probably have at least 5 pairs of black skinny jeans, is kind of saying something. And if I ever feel like my outfit is a bit too plain, topping it off with a wool fedora usually does the trick. I also forgot about these nude ballerina flats ever since my Chicago trip where they hurt my feet kinda badly. But now I've got some shoe rub tape on them and they are good to go again!

Denim shirt, Madewell. White tank top, Fabletics. Black skinny jeans, Gap. Nude lace-up flats, Zara. Mini bucket bag, Mansur Gavriel. Wool fedora, Zara.

My favorite steak!! We also tried the lobster mashed potatoes for the first time, which a lot of people rave about, but I thought it was just ok.

  19. Great finding your blog,xx BING.

  20. I could do with a winter heat wave right about now. We have blue skies in England at the moment, but it's really cold... Cool outfit, I've been relying a lot on classic pieces lately and also haven't been shopping much but I think it's good to recycle old reliable favourites and get the most out of the pieces we own. :)


  21. Beautiful shots, love the ocean! The food looks so good, I'm in Malibu alot but I've never eaten here. A must do!


  22. You're absolutely right about those classics never letting you down!

  23. nice outfit!

  24. I am glad that I finally got a chance to check out this place. Great views, food is nice. The quality of service at the party venues was great, and the environment were pretty comfortable. I’ll say I will look forward to visit again.
