Being a style and travel blogger who is constantly on the go, the clothes I wear change all the time. However, there are certain looks I go back to every summer, which create a big part of my signature style—boho-chic and Cali beach-babe being some of my favorites. One of my favorite neighborhoods in San Diego, the charming and adorable Encinitas, has the best boutiques in town.

 

Do it for the Culture

Salt Culture

Located in the cutest beach cottage in the heart of Encinitas, Salt Culture is your one-stop shop for all your boho-chic looks! They have a great selection of pieces from preppy, polka dot dresses to Beyoncé-worthy striped jumpsuits and relaxed, flowy styles. Don’t forget to check out their secret patio and the butterfly mural for some Instagram-worthy shots!

Designer Dreams

Design 4 Corners

This is one of the most charming home decor boutiques I’ve ever seen—I want to buy every single piece there. If I had a boutique of my own, it would be very similar to Design 4 Corners. Every bit is a photo opportunity!

All Aboard!

Caravan West

I can’t wait to visit Morocco one day, but in the meantime, I love stopping by this boutique to check out their unique, bohemian-inspired pieces—especially their rugs and pillows. They carry an exquisite selection of home goods, coffee table books and some of my favorite Aussie brands as well.

Let’s Hear it for the Boys

UNIV

With their goodies influenced by the coast, your man will be ready to create his own style blog after a shopping spree at UNIV. There are not many male style bloggers out there, so a visit to UNIV is encouraged.

Local Beaches Only

Local Beach

For those of you that prefer online shopping, Local Beach is a website that carries cute and relaxed clothing and beach accessories. If you live in San Diego, you know you gotta have a towel that matches your effortless beach look: your beach bag, straw hat and bikini.
