California Coastal Look

Location: Montage Laguna Beach

This is my first, true “mom style” blog post! And I’m a little nervous about it 😉 When I started La Petite Plum, my plan was to solely focus on baby and child style, and for the most part, keep myself out of the pictures… but after looking at my site analytics and getting feedback from my followers, I’m finally listening! You asked for more of my “mom style,” so here is my first post that doesn’t include my children or products for children. Let me know what you think and if you want to see more!!

The nice thing about this look is that you can get it all from Nordstrom.  Growing up in the Seattle area (where Nordstrom was founded), I learned to shop at Nordstrom from an early age. Thank you, mom! I love their return policy/customer service, find there stores easy to navigate, and really appreciate the free shipping. It’s probably the only reason I have clothes, since I rarely find time to shop for myself and try items on in store. What did moms do before online shopping?

Okay, back to this ensemble… I wore it for a date night with my husband to the stunning Montage resort in Laguna Beach, while we we were there on a family vacation a couple weeks ago. The outfit is really a daytime look, but when it’s summer and you are at a resort, I think these light colors can carry over to the evening just fine. Also, I’m four months pregnant in these photos, and I have to say, the ruffled hem definitely helps hide the growing belly. I was in that awkward phase where people couldn’t quite tell I’m pregnant. With it only being $49 and so forgiving on the figure, I may need to buy it in more colors to wear after our baby boy arrives in December!

    AMAZING!!! You are so beautiful and your kids, too. Peter isn’t too bad . . . just kidding. I have a good friend who lives in New York that is obsessed with your blog. She follows you and loves looking at everything. Good job, Marina.

    This is a super cure too! I am wondering if the top has lycra. I note on the Nordstrom website it says some colors have lycra and others don’t and of course they don’t tell you!

        Wish I could help with the other colors too! Maybe try calling Nordstrom if you see that you can pick up the color you are looking for in your local store and they should be able to go read the tag.
