SLO to Snow // China Peak

On March 29, 2017, in Wanderlove :: SLO, Wanderlust, by Kerry Cushman

One of the magics of living on the central coast of California is having beaches, mountains and vineyards all at our fingertips on any given day. Beach in the morning and ski in the afternoon. With this winter’s epic snow, I have no idea why it took us until March to find our way to the slopes {I think we were enjoying the vineyards, lol}… Thankfully before the season ended we joined some friends in an awesome RV ski road trip (aka SNOW FAM JAM!). Just over 3.5 hours from San Luis Obispo is China Peak ski resort and wow, it did not disappoint!


Fresh snowfall! Only 3.5 hours from SLO, kiddos woke up to a winter wonderland. By noon it was shorts and major sunscreen kind of weather. Love spring skiing in California!


Unplugged… cell service is pretty spotty at the mountain, which was amazing when you have this view. And family. And friends. And a slope-side General Sherman IPA.


Littles loving it! Great beginner slope with moving carpet for the kiddos {and 5 & under ski free!}. These three amigos rocked the bunny hill from open to close!


This is the LIFE… apre-ski West-coast style // China Peak is one of the few ski resorts to have RV parking on site! Did I mention just how cool this is? Ski all day and walk back to your home on wheels and soak it all in. So.Good.


We are all stoked to go back!! Such good family time. They have some pretty good specials happening and {as of last weekend} still have tons of snow. Passes for their 2017/2018 60th anniversary season are now on sale and if you buy now you can spring ski the rest of the year for free! Cant wait for our next SLO to snow adventure! xx

Summer is here! Time to pack up the beach bag and hit the sand. I gave The Fashion Spot the inside scoop on my beach bag essentials. Check ’em out and tell me… what’s in your bag?

I live on the West coast, but my monogrammed L.L. Bean beach tote reminds me of my summers spent in Maine. What’s inside? Take a peek!

1). Coola sunscreen, organic and smells amazing.

2). I almost always have at least two Kushcush swimsuits on hand. The Coquette in Blush Lace is one of my go-to faves.

3). Evian mist for hot days.

4). Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco spray, reminds me of being on vacation and is the only scent I wear.

5). Always my sketchbook.

6). Matchbox cars and healthy snacks for my son, Jax.

7). California Baby Hair De-tangler (which I originally bought for Jax, but it’s fantastic on my long hair!).

8). I’m obsessed with the Next Issue iPad app. It’s like carrying 20 magazines in one.

9). Kushcush printed scarves. They’re a major multi-tasker: from beach cover-up to blanket to scarf… and a lovely pop of style!

10). Miu Miu cross-body purse so I can easily downsize from the beach to a seaside lunch without carrying my entire beach bag.


See you at the beach!





Eeeek! I couldnt be more excited to share that Kushcush made it into the Superbowl of Swimwear…the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue!! And to boot featured in the cover-story with the gorgeous Kate Upton shot in Antarctica. Check it!

So hot & so cold! Kate Upton wearing Kushcush in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. The bikini bottom was made in a custom cream mohair + gold lurex fabric for Kate, but is available in a more water-friendly nylon/spandex version called the ‘Emily’ style, shop here.


Genevieve Morton also wearing a Kushcush by Kerry Cushman bikini on SI.com!


Getting my copy, so excited! xx



Welcome to the islands! I adore these photos of Solange Knowles spotted wearing my Kushcush Lovey one-piece in Ikat while on holiday in Jamaica. She looks modern and hip while epitomizing vibrant island style. British Vogue captured the look for Day 24 of her style diary. Loveeeee it.


The candid shots Instagram style (photos Solange Knowles via Twitter):

The Lovey romper one-piece (with a built in support bra!) has a vintage vibe and can easily go from day to night. Available in bold ikat print as seen on Solange at Saks.com ($167). Or go understated chic in solid navy, available at Anthropologie.com ($158).


How cute is she! The vibrant Ikat print with tones of fuschia, orange and purple is perfectly at home on a tropical getaway or an inspiration that spring is soon to come! For a little less is more, try the Bali string bikini in the same bold print, available at Kushcush.com ($145).
