As we dream of escaping to tropical locales and warm weather getaways during these colder months, we can’t help but notice a major holiday vacation swimwear trend that’s happening pretty much everywhere we look: stripes. Classically cool, always, who doesn’t love stripes!?

It seems every blogger and celeb is rocking the trend on the beach and who can blame them? Stripes are that perfect in between pattern for when you want something more than a solid color bikini, and yet you’re still not quite ready to bring the florals back out. Stripes will keep your swimwear on trend all winter long, and season over season.

The brand of the moment doing it right? Vitamin A. The effortless designs will always make you look so chic (without even having to try) and will hug your body just right. The seams lie flat against the skin to create figure-flattering perfection! Vitamin A is a favorite around here and once you make your first purchase you might never go back!

Happy Holidays!

As we get into the swing of the holiday season, we’re looking to one of our favorite brands (and some bloggers we adore) to give us that summer feeling in the midst of winter {and} to give us constant inspiration from their travels all around the world. Nothing makes us crave summer more than seeing photos of the sandy beaches in Tulum, poolsides in Malibu, deep blue waters of Thailand, and beautiful palms of the Yucatán. How many of you out there have island getaway plans for Christmas and New Years? (We want in!) 

L*Space is forever a hit around here, and here’s why: the minimal yet chic designs suit every girl, every occasion, and every travel situation too! We love the resort season’s retro flair, high waist options, pullover bandeaus and the variety of seaside-ready silhouettes. L*Space is truly that sun-kissed California lifestyle brand. You’ll definitely want to put an L*Space bikini at the top of your holiday travel packing list!

Click here to shop our favorite L*Space styles and don’t forget to show us photos from your tropical getaway this holiday season (tag us on instagram and use our #OpheliatheLove hashtag too)!

{we’re already jealous, btw}

With the holiday season coming in hot, we’ve been busy preparing the shops with new arrivals and trendspotting fresh, new looks as we head into all things merry and bright. One brand we can’t get enough of is Acacia and their newly-launched Resort collection. ? Think dreamy pieces with unexpected details, flattering cuts, jewel-toned neutrals, and bold florals that are reviving our love of the already-trending (like this one we’re currently loving) print itself.

We’re giving all of YOU, our Ophelia girls, an exclusive look at the Acacia Resortwear line that will be available soon here in Ophelia HQ, just in time for the holiday season.

p.s. Looking for something today, love? Shop some of our current favorite florals, stripes, and neutrals available online!


As we transition into the cool and crisp evenings filled with jewel-toned leaves, a glass of red wine vs rose, and a sweater for good measure, we’re still finding a place for eternal summer and balmy beach days. The new season has been a natural style evolution with fall’s best looks sporting pretty, neutral basics (marshmallow tans, burnt oranges, earthy reds) with classic, minimal silhouettes and autumn-toned dainty floral prints with high waist bottoms. These looks are taking us from our morning yoga sesh, coffee with our favorites, nights out dancing, and of course, back to the endless days of summer on 30A.


If you’re looking for something that will take your look into fall we’ve rounded up, we’ve put together looks that embody all our favorite fall trends as of late…

Hi there! The best of fall days are upon us, the smell of the farmer’s market berries, relaxing in the sun reading your new favorite book, long evenings laughing with your best girlfriends, chilled wine, and lush patios. Does it get any better? Yep- when it comes to what we’re wearing, naturally! From ocean-inspired hues (Slated Glass!) to retro it-girl vibes, we’re soaking up the sun in the best way we know how – in style.

It’s the first day of Fall, and doesn’t September feel like a breath of fresh air? The days feel a little more magical caught between the two seasons and everyone is floating from the glow of summer. We’ve embraced this month in all ways, especially celebrating our end of summer sale here and on @opheliathelove insta that will bring your fall wardrobe some extra happiness (this night-shirt-turned-your-favorite-new-basic-black-blouse is on sale and we can’t get enough!).

 In the meantime, we’re gearing up for some fun ways to relax here in 30A and have been dreaming about bonfires and lazy nights. What are some ways you’re planning to make the most of September’s chill and relaxed vibes?

For the weekend, we’re looking forward to a relaxing girls night out, probably Netflix and the softest t-shirt ever will also be involved. We’ll also be scouting our favorite instagram shots for some fall style inspo. We’ve been absolutely loving all our Ophelia girls out there making the most of summer’s last days in-style both near and far!

This summer was packed with the awe of the Universe – the Solar Eclipse, especially, made for some serious magic we’re still day-dreaming about. It’s the kind of magic that’s making us want to throw a suitcase of our favorite pieces of the summer, jump in the car (preferably, no top, wind in our hair, please), and start driving West. A beach indefinitely. Ring a bell? Shoutout to all our wandering spirits out there! Speaking of, we loved this Four Seasons Hualalai blogpost featuring L*Space and Vitamin A, their trip looked like a dream. We highly suggest giving it a look over for trip inspiration!

Sooner than later, speaking of, fall will be upon us so that road-trip might be right around the corner. Until then we’ve seen so many amazing textures, styles, cuts, and colors from our favorite brands that we’re looking to rock during those weekend nights. We must say it’s truly been hard for us to pick just one of our ‘favorite styles of summer’ (we’ve come pretty close, though!).

We had a hard time choosing which Ophelia girls would be featured this week – all of you are styles muses in our Universe- to the moon and the stars loves! We hope the magic of the summer keeps shining into your week.

Hey beach babes! We hope you’ve had a magical week as we raced through the indian summer days of August. Can you even believe it’s the first of September?! These end of summer days have been flying by for us for sure! We’ve just returned from Palm Beach for another trip to Market, and we’re reminiscing over our collab shoot with wanderlust style maven and blogger, Oui We Girl along with the amazing stylists at Paris Parker

For our New Orleans adventure we arrived at the newly-opened Drifter Hotel which is officially one of our favorite must-sees of NOLA if you’re visiting anytime soon! As we set up for the photoshoot we had some time in-between to sip coffee and nibble on croissants while checking out the amazing 1960’s Art Deco vibes of the space. Think 60s-style green flapper draped lightening, pop-art murals, bright prints of unexpected colors mixed with pearly-hued pastels and some wonderfully tacky wood paneling for good measure. The shoot was set to roll after the models threw in a pink, sprinkled donut float in the pool, naturally. We’ve got our own Unicorn FLOATY here if you don’t have one yet!

If you’d like to see some of the amazingness that came out of the shoot, make sure to check out  Paris Parker’s behind the scenes recap on their blog and the lookbook as well! After wrapping the shoot we came back to 30A with so much style inspo which carried over into this week’s Ophelia girl’s blog features. Thanks for sharing so many magical style moments of your own. Til’ next week!

BTW! We’ll be out on the Sidewalk for the Seaside Sale all weekend, come by and shop our sale bins and say hello!

Hi Ophelia babes!

How are you all living out there?! After the magic of Monday’s Solar Eclipse we’re still feeling pretty mystical over here. As we’re heading into the last weeks of August we’ve been busy in the shops getting ready for some new styles arriving (hint: hello, fall!) whilst still planning end of summer gatherings.

Speaking of, any fun plans for Labor Day? We know what we’re wearing (this retro number from L*Space that we – and every cute insta girl out there – can’t stop obsessing over) and we’re already picking the playlists too. Our watermelon and rose cocktails are already accounted for!

For this week’s Ophelia girl features we welcomed back one of 30A’s finest home after her year in Malibu, Paige – heyyyy!! Plus Alden is back from Australia too, so cheers to that and cheers to summer, forever.

If there’s one thing we know for sure is that it’s been a hot, hot summer and we’re seriously looking forward to fall days. We’ve been keeping things cool by mixing up all our favorite mocktails (that can easily be non-virgin!) and wearing our favorite new white two-piece from Frankie’s Bikinis. We’ve managed to swing some end of summer beach days and stock some new arrivals as we prepared for one of our favorite events of the year, Miami Swim Week. Major style inspiration down on those beaches by the way! Make sure to check out this Instagram in the moment feed to remember all the amazing looks from swim week.

Even though our schedules are filling up with back to school activities, we’re still checking out this weekend’s 30A events, maybe we’ll see you out? Enjoy this week’s #OpheliaTheLove features and we’ll be back with more insider updates next week! Happy weekend, beach babes!
