Today we’re dreaming of white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, and a lot of Vitamin D. The Maldive islands are a series of hot spots that make up twenty-six atolls in the middle of the Indian ocean. There’s also an island with a beach that illuminates at night called Vaadhoo Island. A great little escape for friends to enjoy water sports and couples to enjoy their honeymoon.

Soak up the sun this summer in Pura Vida!  We love these bright and flirty styles!

“These were taken at Cardiff near the cliffs.  It’s one of my favorite spots for all things fun in the sun!  I wanted the photos to be beachy, playful, and care-free especially for a SoCal summer.  I just happened to stumble across the purple flowers.  The color was so rad and insanely vibrant!  I’m actually the model in these photos.  They were done for my blog Braided Bliss; fashion blog featuring causes and organizations to help raise awareness.” – Ansley
