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!

Behind the Scenes: FW20 Kids Photoshoot

We’re super excited to share some Behind the Scenes from our Fall  / Winter 2020 Kids photoshoot! 

We took a slightly different direction this season and decided to shoot in a studio to tell our fall and winter kids stories. It was the first time we met with our awesome crew since Covid-19 so we took all of the necessary precautions. Our aim was to create some fun looks for the rest of the year while staying safe. We wore masks, took the crew’s temperature, and had a maximum capacity of the crew who were allowed in the studio.

We are so excited to share with you our photographer’s images! Plus, we had a separate team creating fun video content to help bring our vision to life! (Scroll to the bottom to see the video!)

Check out some fun behind the scenes below.

5 Rules We Swear By When Getting Dressed for Work

Remember these five rules next time you are getting dressed for work. 

Do you ever stumble out of bed on a workday only to stare into your closet and moan, “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!” Well, my friend, you are not alone. I take part in that predicament almost every day. For me, it is important that I am dressed appropriately for work and comfortable. Who can get any work done when their pants are too tight or their shirt keeps riding? I sure can’t. So I like using the following rules when I get dressed for work:

1. Wear comfortable shoes!

There is nothing better than a cute pair of shoes with all-day comfort. We all have things to stress about throughout the workday and having uncomfortable shoes should not be one of them! I personally recommend Ozone for a cute sandal or Leeds, if you are looking for a bit of a lift.

2. Practice safe lengths!

Remember: you are at work! Wearing short skirts or low cut tops might have you tugging at your clothes all day so might as well keep them in your closet. I’m not saying to cover up from head to toe, but keep things at an appropriate length. When in doubt, I use the arm’s length rule: make sure your skirt or dress rests lower than your fingertips when your arms are resting straight down.

3. Dress the part!

It’s important to dress appropriately for your industry and role. If you work at a startup where it’s ok to be more casual, go for it! Work at a fashion brand? Feel free to take risks and trend it up. If you work at a law firm, go a bit more professional. Whatever the case, make sure you are dressed for the job. (And for the job that you want!)

4. Care, even if casual!

Trust me, I love a casual look more than most, but I always make sure to put thought into my outfit. For example, I like pairing a tee-shirt and denim skirt with a cute pair of heels. I wear my Hapuku’s with almost every casual look I own! Remember that accessorizing a casual outfit goes a long way.

5. Embrace what makes you unique!

YOU DO YOU! Show your style and personality at work! Spice up your work-appropriate look with something that makes your individuality stand out.

We would love to hear how you dress up your Blowfish Malibu shoes for work! Tag us @blowfishmalibu for a chance to be featured!

Sandal Season: A Round Up Of Our Favorite Picks For 2019

Sandal season is finally here, my friends!

I am so excited to announce that it’s finally that time of the year again – sandal (and pedicure) season! We can finally bring our sandals and wedges back into the mix to pair with slip dresses, cut off shorts, and summer jumpers. We love how versatile our sandals are – ranging from strappy to full coverage and micro-wedge to super wedge. Dress them up, dress them down, wear them all over town. Check out a few of our favorite sandal picks so far this year for outfit inspiration from some Blowfish Malibu babes. 

Blumoon

This sandal features a unique silhouette, a micro-wedge heel, inside zipper, and accent ankle straps. Don’t forget about Blowfish Malibu’s signature slightly cushioned footbed, too. With this style and comfort, you won’t want to take Blumoon off for the entire season! Wear them while romping around the beach, or strutting your stuff in Hollywood.

@meganraeoflight, Rosemary Kunigan

Bungalow

Stride all day in this ultra strappy sandal! The Blowfish Malibu Bungalow is the perfect sandal to pair with a casual summer dress or shorts and a tank! The double ankle strap accent and slightly-cushioned footbed that is signature to all of Blowfish’s sandals make this sandal not only chic but comfortable. Plus, the heel zipper lets you get in and out of these super quick. Take these babies to your next destination vacation for the ultimate combination of cool and comfort!

@kimguevaraaa,@natdaddieco,@laurenvalliaz

Leeds

Need an extra boost in the height department? Don’t worry, me too! That’s why Leeds is my go-to wedge for occasions when I need to be comfortable and dressed to kill. These sandals effortlessly pair with denim jeans or your favorite summer dress. Leeds features a faux-leather upper and buckle detailing at the ankle. Added bonus? This style is registered vegan by the Vegan Society!

@ginasobelman,@ootd.alma.style,@sequinsandsales,@theangelajones,@lifewcasey_,@shaylee_lane

Makara

Ensure your summer looks are California-cool with Makara from Blowfish Malibu. This platform sandal features a faux stacked sole with a molded footbed and faux leather upper. Don’t forget the cute details like the dented studs, branded buckle, and O-ring detail. These beauties are perfect for your casual lazy days, but also when you still want to look cute. Pair Makara with your favorite maxi dress or boyfriend jeans and a vintage top for that ultra Cali look.

48 Hours in the Vex Sneaker

We put the new Vex sneaker to the ultimate test. 

Have you ever owned a pair of shoes that you just never wanted to take off? So much so that you refused any other shoe in your closet? I remember when I was young, my little sister was obsessed with her cowboy boots. She had a pair of white, calf-high boots with pink fringe. They had a little heel and silver buckles. She wore them incessantly. The only time she ever took them off was for soccer practice. She would wear them to the field (picture her in her soccer shorts and jersey) before changing into her cleats. And when soccer practice was finished, she would immediately throw her boots back on. Now, that is love!

I’m looking for that type of unconditional love. I’m searching for a shoe that is durable, comfortable, stylish, and that I can wear nonstop.

The new Vex sneaker is just what I’m looking for.

I put Vex to the test and wore the sneaker from 9am – 9pm for two days. Learn about my findings below!

Comfortability

The first thing I look for in a shoe is comfortability. I want to make sure I am comfy and that the shoe is easeful. Vex’s appeal is in its comfort. This ultra-lightweight sneaker features a canvas upper with elastic on the vamp so putting the shoe on and taking it off is super easy. It’s light weight so the shoe easily bends and moves with your foot, and I have to say it felt really nice! I wore them with and without socks and not once did I get a blister.

Durability

These cuties are light weight but they pack a punch! I took mine out for a spin (hike) at Griffith Park, and though they did get a little dusty, they stayed strong and supportive. However, if you need extra support for your arches, I recommend getting inserts.

Style

I absolutely love the look of the newest silhouette from Blowfish Malibu. Vex features an upper with distressed edges and contrast stitching for a subtle pop. This sneaker goes with everything which made getting dressed each morning a breeze. On day one, I paired them with a mini sundress and denim jacket for a California-cool look. And on the next day I wore them with ankle tapered jeans and a mens white button-down long sleeve shirt. I felt totally put together and polished, yet casual and laid back.

So, it’s official. These sneakers go with everything and are super comfortable. I absolutely adore the new Vex sneakers and think I just may have found the love I was looking for.
