Travel Blog: I Visit The Westlake Village Inn in Malibu and Showcase 2 Holiday Looks Featuring 1 Skirt

Anyone who really knows me knows that I can and will ride a bike with a sequin floor length skirt on! Easy! Love that The Westlake Village Inn Provides these adorable bikes with a basket to get around the grounds.

 

This year Jeff and I spent a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday in California at The Westlake Village Inn near Malibu. This resort holds a special place in my heart because its where Jeff and I stayed when I brought him home for the holidays to meet my family for the 1st time 4 years ago. Jeff was supposed to only stay 3 days with me in California, but ended up loving it so much he adjusted his schedule and stayed 7 days! Needless to say, our visit went well as we are now married with an 8-month-old baby!

So we are back at the Westlake Village Inn! The gorgeous scenery of the Resort grounds was the perfect backdrop to showcase one of my favorite items this holiday season,…the sequin maxi skirt! I have seen this skirt all over the blogs and I could not wait to give it a try with my own twist! Its the perfect item for all those upcoming holiday parties!

I wanted to showcase 2 looks. The first a more casual yet glam party look with a flat shoe and cozy feel. And for the second look, I wanted all-out holiday bombshell, inspired by the couture looks of the late Oscar De La Renta…but for under $100!
