Well, it's that time of year again. We know you must be busy with holiday season festivities and last-minute gift shopping, so we decided to do some wishlist work for you -- keep reading for our picks for each Sundry girl in your life.
The best of Thanksgiving: Pumpkin pie, laughing with the family, sleeping in late. The worst of Thanksgiving: long lines at the airport, holiday-shopping mayhem, fighting with said family. We know the holidays can be both wonderful and stressful. That's why we're thinking ahead for you. Keep reading for the perfect long-weekend packing list.
Thursday: Quality time with the family. The Lean On Me Boy Tee is perfectly comfy and cute for lounging around and assisting in meal-prep.
Thursday Night: Slip into the Stripe Rib Midi Dress for dinner: chic, sleek, and lots of stretch.
Friday: Emerge from your food coma and hit the stores for some holiday shopping. The La Parisienne Long Sleeve is perfect for layering and cozy enough for all-day wear.
Saturday: Throw on the Striped Pocket Long Sleeve for a day of kicking back and enjoying those leftovers while they last.
Sunday: Keep calm and head to the airport. The Striped Side Zip Tunic will keep you warm on the long flight back.

The new season is in full swing, which means it's time to plan that perfect Fall trip. This year, we were craving a road trip up the beautiful coast of California, and so we did just that. It turned out to be the perfect cool-weather getaway - the shoreline is beautiful all year long but starts to feel magical as the sky turns a shade darker and the air starts to chill.
As our Fall '16 collection is built around the notion of this trip, we didn't take these travel plans lightly. We planned each stop diligently and scouted the most beautiful spots in each destination. We ultimately mastered the ultimate California-Coast adventure, so we figure it's only right to share with you here. Enjoy!
As every Sundry girl knows, each of our collections is designed to be worn on the go, and Fall 2016 is no different. This season, Matthieu (the man behind the brand) wanted to create a capsule wardrobe based on the idea of a trip up the California coast. For inspiration, he turned to vintage photographs and elements of the landscape surrounding us – images of desert plants and wide sandy beaches went up on the wall, and the collection moved forward.
If you’re in LA this weekend, we’d love to see you! Come join us at our Culver City pop-up store on Saturday for Underpass, a monthly celebration of music, art, and fashion at Platform LA. Sundry will be open and serving refreshments from 6pm – 10pm (oh, and the entire store will be 30% off). RSVP here to attend.

Our dear friend and Sundry ambassador Paola Lopez recently surprised us with some amazing photos of her taken by surf photographer Nik West. Sayulita-based West is known for unique, vibrant portraits of surf culture and beach life. As fans of his work, we were thrilled to see these photos of Paola taking up waves in her Sundry favorites.
