Swirl Summer Wishlist: Guest Blog Post By Chantelle Malarkey

Another day at one of my favorite boutiques in Southern California! I had the most amazing time at Swirl Boutique to check out the new pieces she got for this spring and upcoming summer. Once again, I felt so welcomed and comfortable in her store!

Lisa has an eye for up and coming fashion and her picks are all amazing. You can’t go wrong stopping in to grab a few things before vacation, for summer beach dates, or spring date nights! Honestly, you had to drag me out of the store.

With the help of Lisa and her team we picked out some beautiful outfits perfect for summer time. I always like to put my own twist on outfits and do that when I’m at Swirl...bringing my favorite shoes and bags to pair with each outfit. I had so much fun exploring Carlsbad and finding cute locations around town to shoot some pictures in the outfits! 

I am headed to Costa Rica in a week and can’t wait to bring these outfits with me, especially the dresses! They all have such a vacation vibe to them. Swirl Boutique carries some of my favorite brands and I learned of some brands that are new to me that I absolutely love including Indah Clothing, Saltwater Lux, and Rollas.

If you live in the SoCal area, definitely go check out one of her shops! She has locations in Encinitas, Carlsbad, and San Clemente.
