A Moment with…Marlien of Le Catch

we caught up with the former fashion editor and stylish eye behind
the spot-on shopping blog Le Catch as she packed her weekend bag for
a little escape to Malibu.
What’s your style mantra?
Dress like yourself.

What’s the thing that you love most about living in Los Angeles?
Paddleboarding in Paradise Cove and eating lunch with my kids on the beach in January.

What’s your travel vice?
A huge stack of magazines, sappy movies, a New York Times best seller
and a glass of wine on the plane.

Malibu musts…
The new beachside Nobu for drinks and dinner—you’ll feel like you’ve checked into an
Aman resort in the Tropics.

For shopping, it’s the Malibu Lumber Yard (J.Crew is there!) and Hidden
Treasures, a vintage store in Topanga Canyon. Kate Moss is a rabid fan, which is
to say that it’s chock-full of amazing finds.

I am obsessed with the almond milk at the Pressed Juicery trailer stationed
outside the Malibu Lumber Yard. They serve up the tastiest, good-for-you
blended juices.

Malibu Country Mart for stellar celeb spotting. (There’s also a small playground
that my kids love.)

What’s in your bag?
Embroidered rope tunic: I love that I can throw this on over a bathing
suit and wear it post-beach. This lacy one has a bohemian-chic spirit.

Metallic Kira sandals: Gold metallic sandals are about as
beachy glam as you can get.

Scalloped hipster:The scalloped edging is a sweet detail on an
otherwise surf-worthy suit.

Amore Pacific lip balm: This is like the silk version of lip balm.
It’s the perfect antidote to sun-kissed lips. Goes on smooth, not at all goopy.

Mexican serape: When we go to the beach, we’re there for the whole day,
so a big blanket is essential.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Cheryl Strayed:
A tear-jerking page-turner that everyone I know is raving about.
