Personal Style Post: My Visit to Catalina Island

On Sunday, I celebrated by birthday on Catalina Island. I wanted to do something relaxing yet enjoyable so based on a friend's recommendation and my own research, I felt that Catalina Island would be a great fit. I was right!

I took the Catalina Express boat over from Long Beach, CA. The island offers a range of activities like snorkeling, parasailing, shopping, rock climbing, sight seeing  and more! I decided on a chic but comfortable outfit just so I would be comfortable, relaxed and ready to have a great time.

Dress: Topshop
Leggings: American Apparel liquid leggings (old)
Bag: Melie Bianco 
Boots: Random Brand
Jacket: Random Brand

Along with all the activities, there are a number of great dining options on the island. If you visit on your birthday, you get to take the boat over to the island free of charge! Additionally, you will get to choose from a number of birthday discounts/freebies.

I highly recommend a visit. It's truly a beautiful place and a great day/overnight getaway option.

I had a fantastic time!

Obviously I don't meet too many other Jamaican's my age interested in the same types of things that I'm interested in lol. Loving the content you post! You look great! Looks like so much fun, what a wonderful place to spend a birthday! :) :)
