Staycation // The Monarch Beach Resort

If you follow along on instagram you probably saw we had a little stay cation a few weeks ago. I have a huge OC guide in the works for you girls but today I wanted to share one of my favorite hotels that will definitely be on my guide, The Monarch Beach Resort!

We are fortunate enough to have several  great resorts in SoCal and over Father’s Day weekend we surprised my hubby with an overnight stay at The Monarch Beach Resort. We love this place so much (we actually got married there a million years ago!) and I hadn’t been since they remodeled. We couldn’t wait to get checked in and just dominate the pool all day with the kids.  So here are some random shots from out stay there a couple weeks ago….

The views here are seriously breathtaking!

not a bad view either 😉 xo

The newly renovated pool and cabanas were so charming and i’m obsessed with these chairs!

Luca  “living his best life” ( I die every time I see this pic hahaha)

The beautiful tile accents everywhere were definitely my favorite!

Our little fish!

Ava couldn’t wait to get checked in and into her swimsuit!

If you’re looking for a super kid friendly property, this one is it! Ava and Luca especially loved the main lawn that is the perfect space for the kids to run around and play. They even had kites and some other pretty awesome lawn toys available for the kids to use.

Seriously how stunning is this place? Brings back SO many memories!

Bout’ that pool life 😉

Swimsuit //  Skirt Cover Up // Sunglasses // Beach Tote //

Let’s just say my normal pool attire at home and swim practice is not this fab;) …. so when I get to stay cation somewhere fun I always love to get a little more decked out. I’m obsessed with this One Shouder One Piece (the back detail is amazing and it actually has pretty good bum coverage compared to some of the other one pieces i’ve tried) I also immediately fell in love with this Swim Skirt Cover Up. It’s gives you that “gone with the wind fabulous” 😉 when you walk.

Here are a few more of my current favorite one pieces…

andddd I may be biased but this Moet cart could have been my favorite part of their new decor 😉 Seriously how amazing is this?!

7 a.m. “mom can we go to the pool”?  (without fail everytime 😉

They loved the  kids pool (especially the water fountains)

 I mean is there anything sweeter than a mini baby eating a mini burger!? 😉

These are the moments! So dang grateful for this guy xo

As previously mentioned I am in the process of putting together a MAJOR OC guide. If there are any questions or places you want suggestions for please feel free to leave them below and ill try to include them! Hope you girls all have a great week!
