Scott Hawaii is a footwear company with a long reputation for superior quality. Its founders, Elmer and Jean Scott, moved to the Hawaiian Islands back in 1932 where they crafted plantation boots for the sugarcane and pineapple field workers. After World War II, Scott Hawaii changed their direction towards making the best casual sandals- or as the local Hawaiians call them, “slippers”.

Today, Scott Hawaii still lives by the highest standards of quality and staying true to its island roots. These comfy and durable sandals give you a touch of laid-back island life every time you step into them.

There's a perpetual youthfulness and effortless cool that comes with the SoCal surfer girl look that we just simply can't get enough of. This laid-back beachy look can be seen on a slew of beach beauties everywhere, from Laguna Beach to Cocoa Beach. The aura around the surfer girl style is relaxed and simple; think wavy wash-and-wear hair, minimal makeup and a sunny year-round tan.

When going for the breezy surfer girl look, there are a few staple pieces that will surely be on heavy rotation in your wardrobe:  

1.      Summer dresses: A lightweight summer dress is definitely a beach essential. Picking a striped dress, like the Roxy Sequoia Halter Dress, is reminiscent of the classic ‘70s surfer girl.

2.      Lightweight tank tops and camis: Look for tank tops and camis with stripes or tropical florals for a summery look. The Volcom Cassie Cami Top is an excellent example of how versatile this look is. Wear it alone or layered under a light hoodie.

3.      Unstructured bags: Hobos and totes in lightweight fabrics are perfect for carrying to the beach. The adorable Roxy Dock Canvas Tote has a hint of nautical style and is just the right size to carry your daytime essentials.

4.      Comfy flip flop sandals: When you’re treading sand most of the day, a pair of comfy sandals like the Sanuk Yoga Rain Dance (complete with a real yoga mat footbed!) is a must.
