Irvine is consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live in, well known for safety, education and it’s strong job market.

Another great perk of living in Irvine is how close so many shopping centers are! One that always comes to mind is the Irvine Spectrum Center. I love knowing that I can get all my shopping done in one place. In a single trip, I can buy a gift for my friends’ birthday, get new clothes for my always growing boys, and pick up a little something for myself!

Anthropologie is one of our favorite stores, we love their cool and relaxed California vibe. The perfect spot for a curated mix of distinctive clothing, accessories, gifts, and home décor. We also love their Anthro living home which has fun and unique home decor and furniture. Everything you find at Anthropologie is unique, uncommon, and feels original.

Since the New Year has begun, I have really started focusing on my health and fitness (especially since summer is around the corner)! Like lots of other women, I’m absolutely obsessed with Lululemon’s athletic wear. All of their clothes last forever and wearing them makes me more motivated to work out! Their store at Irvine Spectrum has a great selection of leggings and running shorts to choose from. I’m always so tempted to buy everything in there!

Irvine Spectrum also has my go-to store for flowy sundresses and cute bikinis! Free People is the perfect boutique to stop by before a vacation to Cabo or for some colorful summer clothes. I love that I can easily wear one of their maxi dresses with sandals to walk around in at the beach, and then throw on some heels to dress it up for a nice dinner.

Since the Irvine Spectrum center is in the process of being renovated, lots of new stores have popped up! My favorite one that opens up over the summer is Vuori. Vuori draws inspiration from an active coastal California lifestyle. Integration of fitness, creative expression, and life. Their products are designed with a west-coast aesthetic that transitions effortlessly to life outside the gym.

A fun place to stop in the Spectrum is Lip Lab which has customizable lipsticks. Pop in and pull up a stop and capture your individuality with a hue that’s uniquely you. Create a lipstick you absolutely love and love wearing. One thing is for certain– you’ll leave with super happy lips and colorful memories.

We love making a stop for our furry friends at Woofpak, they have great treats and a large selection of fresh food.

In my spare time, I try to focus on finding new trends, decor pieces, and furniture for my clients when they want to move or remodel their homes.

A spot that I visit often for inspiration is Ambiance Home in Irvine. They have a chic collection of plush accent pillows, soft throw blankets and lots more. I like that the whole store is filled with elegant and timeless pieces. To add a pop of color to a simple room, I usually look for an accent chair or pillows that stand out in the store! When I went last week, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the perfect emerald green velvet chairs they had on the second level for my home.

One of the things I love most about Laguna Beach is the variety of quaint stores and the shops downtown.  There are many boutiques scattered throughout the town that sell everything from stunning jewelry and clothes, to surfboards and skim boards.

I absolutely adore the home store Tuvalu, which sells the most beautiful coastal home décor. From their beach styled plates and mugs to their furniture and artwork, the store truly embodies the Laguna Beach relaxed coastal lifestyle.  It’s one of my favorite home stores to pick up a closing gift for a client, of course when I am there I usually always find something for myself too.  If you need a new coffee table book or a decorative item for your home Tuvalu is a must visit.

Laguna Beach is home to one of my favorite jewelry stores, gorjana. Their jewelry is lightweight, delicate and designed to be layered and worn multiple ways. When I walk in gorjana I can’t help but pick up a new necklace or bracelet for myself or a gift for a friend.

Whether dressing for work, date-night or a trip to Disneyland I almost always slip on a piece from gorjana. In the photo the shortest necklace and longest necklace that I am wearing are both gorjana, I’m also wearing their stacking Amara ring set which I absolutely love!

When it comes to clothes, The Shop at Laguna is the place to go since their pieces are fashionable and unique. Many women obsess over their chic sunglasses, and variety of shoes and sun dresses that can be worn for almost any occasion. I found one of my favorite Levi’s jeans at The Shop, they have so many washes and styles that it’s difficult not to buy them all! This is definitely the place to shop and splurge on a few items for yourself or perhaps pick up a gift for the fashionista in your life.

Laguna Beach Shopping

Hobie is another one of my favorite stores to shop at downtown. I always find the most adorable bikinis and boardshorts at Hobie for me and my family. They also have a huge variety of clothing; they have so many graphic shirts to choose from that I often find myself picking up more than just a few tees for my boys. Not only do they have fashionable clothes, but they also have handcrafted surfboards and paddle boards as well. My boys love to admire the boards and dream of learning how to surf as soon as they get a little older.

Another home store that I love to stop at is Vertigo home.  They have the most unique home décor items that showcase a mix of mid-century, modern and European flair.  They offer everything from kitchen items to outdoor furniture to custom upholstery to Izipizi glasses. 

Their home décor items and furnishings are so unique and fun, you may feel as though you are walking through an art museum as you walk through the store. Vertigo is the perfect place to pop in for fun and unique home inspiration or to pick up a unique gift for that artist chic friend.

Like so many people, shopping is one of my favorite things to do when I have a day off. In Corona Del Mar, there are so many little stores and boutiques that line PCH to stop by.

Since I have a passion for staging homes, I am continually looking for new ways to decorate and find pieces that will go perfectly in my clients’ houses. Bliss Home and Design is one of the best places to find décor that will make any house feel like it is right on the sand. I love how so many of their accessories are naturally made from driftwood and shells.

Barclay Butera Interiors is another great boutique to visit since they have the most beautiful furniture and accessories. Their variety of sofas, bedding, lighting, and décor is suitable for any style. I’m absolutely obsessed with their accent pillows since they can add a pop of color or texture to a neutral couch. Every time I visit the store I am so tempted to buy all the pillows on display!

Something I enjoy about being a realtor is helping my clients organize their homes and condense their possessions so that they can get rid of any clutter. Whenever they are looking to have an aesthetic and organized space in their home I refer them to California Closets.

Several of my clients have designed spectacular closets and entertainment centers that are tailor-made to suit each of their lifestyles and budgets using quality materials. I love that the California Closets showroom in Corona Del Mar displays different styles and how each space can be personalized towards each client.

Since the holidays are approaching I’ve been in desperate need of a few new long sleeve tops and jeans. My go-to store for classic clothing pieces in Corona Del Mar is definitely the Laguna Supply. Some of the items in the store are one of a kind and have been found in different parts of the world. One charm I bought for a necklace chain I have, was actually bought at a market in Europe. I almost never walk out of Laguna Supply without a pair of earrings or shoes for myself.

I definitely consider myself lucky living where there are so many places to shop and find my favorite décor for myself and my clients. There are countless stores in Corona Del Mar that would have anything you could ever want. Next time you are in the area, you have to stop by some of these great stores!
