Orange County Surf Day

Roxy dress.

Billabong bikini.

Ray Ban sunglasses.

Yesterday I went surfing with a friend at Huntington Beach.  Southern California is experiencing a heat wave at the moment so it was nice to surf in the cool water.  Later in the day we headed down to Newport Beach.  The sunset there was just incredible.

Runaways


My friends and I went hiking in Malibu yesterday.  Although it was bit hazy, the view from the top was incredible.  I definitely recommend hiking the Zuma Canyon trail.

One of my favorite brands, Free People, has created a surf collection.  The collection is full of colorful prints and great silhouettes perfect for the California surfer girl.  With rash guards, bikinis, one-pieces, shoes, accessories, and even surfboards, there's no way you could go wrong!  Check out my favorite pieces below!

Imagine Dragons - San Francisco, CA

The view of the Bay Bridge from the line getting into the venue.


The venue, America's Cup Pavilion, was located on Pier 27 in San Francisco, CA.  It had a great view of the bay and the skyline.  But since it was right on the bay, as soon as the sun set, it became freezing!


The first opening act was the X Ambassadors.  Their music involved synths and cool harmonies.  Their keyboard player was also rocking out like crazy the whole time.


After their set, their lead singer, Sam Harris, was seated a few rows behind us.  As he was trying to enjoy the next band, a few fans found him.  After a few girls started gathering, many more noticed.  Eventually, there was a line of people waiting for pictures with him.  He was polite and obliged for a few, but then went backstage.


Nico Vega was the second opening band.  Their songs were slightly similar to Kate Nash.  The lead singer loved climbing on top of their pyramid prop during the set.  At one point she even laid down on it and started waving her hands and legs in the air.  That part was just a little weird.


Imagine Dragons was amazing!


Their backdrop looked amazing!




During "Radioactive", their lead singer, Dan Reynolds, was hoisted up into the air by wires.  He then started doing some flips.  There was even a drum at the top of the stage that he started playing.  


Overall, it was one of the best concerts I've attended.
