Big Sur, Day Three: Jade Cove Beach

On our last day in Big Sur we decided to visit Jade Cove Beach at Willow Creek. Jade Cove was windy and cool so I put on my Reverie mint green windbreaker over a mint green All Saints cashmere sweater and threw on my M.Dot head scarf. Mint green is one my favorite colors, it's a surprisingly versatile neutral that works great in both warm and chilly weather. The color was particularly fitting for Jade Cove Beach and blended perfectly with the serene background.

Jade Cove is a popular adventure sport destination that draws both hang gliders and surfers to its rocky shore. The rugged beauty of the serpentine boulders is incredible.

The beach is famous for jade diving. We hiked down a rocky path and made it to the sand and, although we didn't find any of our own jade, we did find a new friend! Justin Barrett is local jade hunter and artist that handcrafts elegant statement pieces, working exclusively in jade. Justin even gave us a piece to take home!

Directly across from the shoreline are beautiful fields of brightly colored wild flowers that stand in stark contrast to the blue and gray hues of the beach. 

After three scenic and restorative days enjoying all Big Sur has to offer, it was time to head back to the city. Special thanks to my friend and photographer, Liz Brown, for being my travel companion. We had a great time collaborating on this project. Liz loves to travel and shoot portraits, fashion and culture all over the world. Check out more of her work at and on Instagram at
