From window shopping at The Point to hiking your favorite trail, this Nike Yoga Dri-Fit Luxe jumpsuit is perfect for any and all summer activities. It can be worn as athleisure or during actual workout classes, making it the ultimate go-to for gals looking to be cute and comfy all season long. The sweat-wick technology plus the sleek and smooth Infinalon fabric make the jumpsuit a quality piece that is well worth the $115 price tag. Best of all, its tight yet flattering fit looks great on any and all body types. 


Pause Studio 

Do This: Infrared Sauna Session 


Some of the biggest summer necessities aren’t things. That said, a detoxifying sweat sesh at Pause Studio is a must. Since summer is the season of beach parties and BBQs, it’s easy to overindulge in the boozy beverages. Thankfully, the infrared sauna at Pause helps to rid your body of toxins, purify your skin and even burn calories. A 60-minute session costs $70, but if you’re in a hurry, 30-minute appointments are also available for $50. This is the ideal Monday ritual following a summertime Sunday Funday!



Buy This: Wool Runners

If you’re looking to stay comfy in the South Bay during summer, stop by Allbirds at The Point. The simple yet stylish Wool Runners are the brand’s signature shoe that are known for being irresistibly soft. Since summer is all about spontaneity, being prepared is a must—especially when it comes to footwear. These shoes can be worn for almost any activity, and since they come in seven different designs and colors, you don’t have to sacrifice style. Keep it classic with the all-white runners or add a pop of blue with the limited-edition Hazy Indigo.



Buy This: Matching Set

Nothing says summer fashion like a matching set. This blue, geometric resort shirt and wide-leg pant combo can be worn at the beach, during a spa day or even during a shopping spree. The flowy design and soft-drape fabric feel great on the skin, and the breathable nature of the set is ideal for beating the heat on a hot summer day. One of the best things about investing in a matching set is having the option to mix and match with other pieces, and for only $88 each, this outfit is a steal.



Buy This: Beach Towel

No beach setup is complete without a big and beautiful beach towel. Whether you’re a swimmer, surfer or sunbather, this plush towel is the ideal accessory for your South Bay beach day. The Beach Towel is made with organic and recycled cotton and avoids harmful chemicals, ensuring safety for people and the planet. That said, the sustainable practices used in crafting this cozy beach towel make the $58 price tag much more acceptable. The Japanese-inspired print is artsy and abstract, setting the scene for a beautiful backdrop at the beach.



Do This: Grab a Beer and Listen to Live Music

Soak up the sun while sipping on a craft beer on the patio at Simmzy’s. The alfresco seating is complete with picturesque patio umbrellas and colorful furniture, and the rotating beer list always features the best brews. The restaurant’s deck also offers prime viewing of The Point’s Summer Concert series. Running from July to August, The Plaza at The Point will host free concerts every Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Grab a seat at Little Simmzy’s and enjoy the tunes, an ice cold IPA and some chicken tinga tacos.
