Malibu Mondays with @getlostwithjackie

For this installment of Malibu Mondays, we accompanied world traveler and NYC blogger, Jackie, of @getlostwithjackie on her day in Malibu. 

We are always excited to see where in the world you are wearing your Blowfish Malibu shoes. We love seeing photos of you all rockin’ your fave styles all over the globe. @getlostwithjackie is one of our favorite travel bloggers and Instagram accounts, so we were beyond thrilled to see where she would be taking her Blowfish Malibu shoes next.

Read her story below!

My friends at Blowfish Shoes sent me a few pairs of shoes for my upcoming trips. My adventures started in LA so it felt fitting to break in my new kicks in Blowfish’s hometown of Malibu.

Malibu is famous for its beautiful beaches, big homes and upscale zip-code. While the lifestyle of the rich and famous is always intriguing, I wanted to find a more laid-back vibe with my Blowfish shoes. I did just that when I stumbled upon the popular El Matador Beach State Park.

There were a few picnic tables a short walk from the unpaved, parking lot. The no-frills locale was right up my alley and the perfect spot to stop and take some photos! I started the day wearing my favorite Blowfish Granola sandals in the beautiful hues of nude-steel and grey dye-cut.

These are my second pair of Blowfish Granola sandals (they come in heaps of colors!). My first pair has successfully made it with me to SEVEN countries! These are my favorite sandals because they are fashionable, yet super comfy. I can walk miles in them without feeling any pain!

While my pose in the photo above may say “cool, calm, collective,” I was actually a bit freaked out. The heights of the cliffs overlooking El Matador Beach were crazy! I love the glimmer of the nude-steel color of the Blowfish Granola sandals shining pretty in the California sunshine.

I was actually a little surprised by how chilly it was! Maybe it was the ocean breeze or perhaps my bones were still chilled from the rough New York winter.

Either way, I felt like a closed-toe shoe was necessary for the rest of my exploring.

If you know me, you know I have a thing for rose gold, so it was only appropriate that I slid my feet into the Blowfish Play Sneakers that come in a beautiful hue of rose gold! I love these sneaks because they’re perfect for travel. Who wants to deal with  laces before you head out?! Just slip your foot in and go!

It was hard not to admire my own shoes! El Matador beach was the perfect backdrop for a ‘shoe-fie’ (a shoe-selfie LOL).

Even this little seagull came to check out my Blowfish shoes when he heard, “rose gold sneakers.”

Just south of El Matador are a few vistas where you can stop to see the beautiful views of Malibu. From the beaches to the homes to the palm trees – the whole area is as pretty as a picture! The perfect place to end my Malibu explorations for the day.

If you’re lucky like I was, you’ll get a perfect Pacific Coast gust of wind to blow your hair beautifully for the perfect photo-op.

Thanks for letting us tag along,  Jackie! We’ll catch up with you soon.
