Behind the Scenes: SS21 Palm Springs Photoshoot

Go behind the scenes of our spring and summer photoshoot in sunny Palm Springs!

Another season, another photoshoot! The Blowfish Malibu team headed out to the legendary Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs, California, for a colorful shoot for our Spring/Summer 2021 collection. The hotel is full of vibrant pops of color, flashy hues and ultra saturated tones. Our new spring and summer 2021 collection follows suit. It is super bright and colorful, and filled with tie dye and hot hues. So, obviously the Saguaro made perfect sense! (Want to see some of the new product? Keep scrolling for a little peek!)

Our team spent two days there shooting for both Womens and Kids back in November, 2020. So, that gave us a ton of time to prep and get assets ready for the upcoming season. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to – so take a look!

Seeing Spots: The Pixi Leopard Print

All eyes on the Pixi Leopard print.

Okay, we admit it – we’re obsessed with all things SPOTTED. In this case, specifically our Pixi Leopard print, which found its way onto a large number of our favorite sandals this season.

There’s just something about leopard. Over the last few years, leopard print has gone from a trend to print that is here to stay. It’s quickly becoming a popular go-to neutral print, and we’ll honestly never be able to get over how effortless it looks with jeans and tee. It’s a print that screams rock n roll, glamour, and edge – all wrapped up in one confident, fun package. What’s not to love about this versatile print?

Scroll through for some seriously cute sandals, in the seriously cute Pixi Leopard print. You’ll probablyyyyy need these your feet ASAP:

How to Wear our Spring Sandals

Spring sandals for the win. 

Springtime is here! …and, if you couldn’t tell, we’re very excited about it. There’s nothing we love more than warm weather, especially when that means we can dust off our spring wardrobe and stock up on some fresh sandals for the season.

We sent out some of our favorite spring sandals to some lovely ladies to shoot, and we are (very much) obsessed with how they styled them for spring. We love all of the casual, California-cool looks styled with our Blowfish Malibu shapes, prints, metallics and all-time strappy faves. But we’re warning you… you may very well want every single pair on this list after reading!

Check them out!

All About Rioo

All eyes on the Rioo shoe. 

Summer is just around the corner! And with that in mind, Blowfish Malibu Kids is excited to introduce you and your little one to the Rioo shoe. Available for Toddlers and Kids, this sweet sneaker is made of a lightweight EVA material.  Its feather-weight and flexibility will allow your little one to adventure through the season with ease. And the best part of Rioo? These shoes are hand-washable, meaning there’s absolutely nothing she can’t do in these summer shoes.  Plus, it makes keeping these kicks clean a breeze.

Scroll through for some cute ways we’ve been seeing Rioo worn in the wild:

4Earth 4 Spring

4Earth 4 spring – second edition!

In March of 2020, we officially launched our 4Earth collection, our first line of shoes EVER with an upper composed of recycled plastic. The collection consisted of two of our most popular styles, and despite everything that happened in 2020, we were incredibly proud of this accomplishment.

The best part of 4Earth? One dollar for every pair sold is donated to Oceana, an organization dedicated to cleaning up the world’s oceans. We can definitely get behind that.

4Earth is BACK for Spring 2021, this time with an additional style, Play4Earth. Our Balla4Earth also gets a chic update with a fun leopard print upper that goes with everything and anything in your closet.

Scroll through for a look at how some girls are wearing these fresh additions to the collection for Spring, and head over to our website to learn more about the 4Earth project.

Sweet Kicks: Spring Sneakers We’re Obsessed With

Take a look at the sneakers that we’re dying over this spring.

Springtime calls for sneakers. When you’re ready to break out of boots and booties, but can’t quite commit to sandals (or maybe the sun hasn’t got his hat on yet)  – sneakers are the go-to.

This spring things have been quite different, and maybe not as adventurous as we intended, but we wanted to share our top picks for the season – plus we’ve loved seeing how our community styles our faves.

Play in Tie-Dye; currently available at Famous Footwear

Tie-Dye is everywhere this season, and we aren’t the exception. Style Play comes in multiple colors, but we’re in love with the pop of color from the tie-dye this spring!

Marley in Sweet Grey; currently available at Gliks

Marley is a fan fave. This sweet grey color  is so versatile and perfect for spring. Pair with denim and a simple tee for an effortless California look.

Fruit in White Canvas; currently available at Shoe Carnival

If in doubt, a plain white sneaker goes with everything. Including casual dresses! We’re in love with style Fruit – they are so versatile. We’re convinced it goes with everything in our wardrobe!

At Home Easter Style Inspiration

We won’t let “shelter in place” keep us from rockin’ our Easter style.

With Easter falling right smack dab in the middle of the “stay at home” order in Southern California, it’s going to be tough to get into the spirit of the holiday. Especially since we’ve been loving living in our comfy leggings. But that said, we’re going to try to get ourselves together, if anything, to maintain some sort of semblance of normalcy during this time. Easter is a holiday we look forward to each year so we’re pulling out all the stops when it comes to our Easter style.

Scroll through for some serious inspiration for getting dressed this Easter Sunday.

Helm

The HELM wedge, pictured above, has quickly become a fan favorite after being introduced last season. Pair this lightweight wedge with an easy-breezy spring dress for a look that’s just as comfortable as your favorite pair of Lulus.

Leeds

We need to take a second to talk about our obsession with the LEEDS platform sandal. Introduced last season, this flatform wedge is at the top of our list, even selling out across the US last year. However, this year, we made sure to have plenty available. Our favorite is leopard print (so cute!) so grab this epic sandal while you still can!

Embrace the feeling of Easter by pairing Leeds with your favorite springtime dress – and then change back into leggings after dinner.

Leoh

We are suckers for a heeled mule (when we’re actually in the office, it’s pretty much all we wear). So the LEOH mule is a great option to slip on for effortless Easter style. Throw on some vintage Levi’s (though we know denim is everyone’s least favorite things these days), and a tee and enjoy the afternoon with your family.

Leigh

If you ask anyone who works on the marketing team what their favorite shoe is for SS2020, it’s LEIGH. Can you blame us? The mule silhouette? The espadrille detailing? I’d personally wear these every chance I get, so I’ll slip them on Easter Sunday with a pair of vintage Levi shorts and a cute top, and enjoy the holiday in my backyard with my family.

Hirosha

easter style

The HIROSHA wedge is back, and better than ever! A pop of leopard and contrasting faux-leather ankle straps make this lightweight wedge a serious winner for the season. Plus it will make you feel a little more jazzed up when you’re at home this Easter Sunday.

Leelee

easter style

The LEELEE wedge is a great choice for someone who wants a little height, but can’t typically wear shoes that are too high. Featuring a velcro closure at the ankle, these lightweight wedges are a total breeze to wear, whether you’re running around outside or enjoying a nice dinner indoors with your family.

Goya

Talk about our perfect at-home Easter outfit! Slip into your favorite linen jumpsuit for maximum comfort, and strap on the forever wonderful GOYA vegan sandal. We promise you’ll feel as though you’re basking in the sunshine all day.

easter style

Ultimately, even though the current circumstances are challenging, the situation is what you make of it! Spend some quality time with your family/quarantine-mates, and try to find joy throughout the day. We’re all in this together, and we’ll get through this together.

Happy Easter, from the Blowfish Malibu family to yours!
