One of the afternoons we had free, my mom and I drove up the coast to spend a few brief hours in Laguna Beach! We had lunch at a yummy place called 230 Forest, where we shared a fried shrimp app and each ordered a salad. After lunch we walked along the beach and explored a few of the little shops (I hopped into this candy shop, obvi) in the area. Where we spent most of our time that afternoon was not on the beach, but at the Gorjana + Griffin headquarters just up the road in Laguna Canyon. After being given a quick tour throughout the facility, Gorjana was kind enough to sit down and chat with us for about an hour. It’s always so refreshing to meet a designer that’s real and down to earth – she’s just about as cool as it gets!
This fall, Gorjana is celebrating their 10th anniversary since they launched the line, which is such an accomplishment! If you’ve been reading my blog since day one, you may remember that my first ever giveaway was for a pair of Gorjana earrings. I’ve been a longtime fan of her pieces and you can always find me layering her rings and necklaces! One of Gorjana’s big campaigns right now is called Laws of Layering – should you find yourself wearing a few Gorjana pieces around your neck, wrist or fingers, be sure to share it on Instagram tagging #LiveLoveLayer for the chance to be regrammed by Gorjana’s Instagram account! Click here to check out Gorjana’s Laws of Layering and be sure to stock up on layering essentials like this Tori midi ring set (on sale!!), this Mia teardrop cuff, or this Mave bar necklace. My mom and I were lucky enough to walk out of our visit with these cuffs. So pretty! A big thank you to Gorjana and her team for having us!!
