My family and I are just returning from a long weekend in Santa Barbara. We stayed at the Rosewood Miramar Hotel which was amazing! The hotel is nestled into the Montecito coastline with beautiful ocean views. It’s modern traditional decor creates a cozy and intimate boutique feel. It has everything you need on property. Paddle boards, kayaks, and boogie boards are all provided at the beach. You can eat and drink beachside while sitting under their iconic turquoise and white stripe umbrellas. If you need to do a bit of shopping both Goop & James Perse have boutiques on site. We ate at Malibu Farm and Caruso’s and the food was excellent. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious, we had a Grand Bungalow which was perfect for a family of four.
We left the property to have breakfast at Helena Avenue Bakery, Hook & Press for donuts, and Lucky Penny for lunch (recommended by my friend Mandy). We rented Mokes from Wheel Fun Adventures and rode them around town. It was the perfect weekend getaway, and an amazing place to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday. We can’t wait to go back!
Now onto what I packed, here are some highlights….
There are so many things I love about the above outfit Emma Roberts is wearing. First, her belted Topshop mini dress ($55)! Second, her mock turtleneck which has been in heavy rotation in my wardrobe lately. My favorites being this Amo (also like this one), Splendid (above pic), and Madewell. Third, her opaque tights mixed with boots and a mini dress! Emma’s boots are By Far, but you can also get the look with these, these, and these. Outfit done!
AMO Camo Army Jacket Shopbop, $375 look for less Topshop Camo Jacket Nordstrom, $95 (not pictured above) I like the juxtaposition of a casual camo jacket being thrown over something dressy with a shimmer or a sparkle.
It’s been freezing in LA these past couple of day. I haven’t taken off my Moncler Lans Puffer Coat (Black and Navy finally in stock at Nordstrom). Here’s a cute outfit you can layer that will keep you warm in these Kule winter temps.
KULE Sinclair Cardigan Shopbop, $348 Catch the cardigan trend with this preppy Kule Cardigan.
Frame Parisian Straight Leg Jeans Nordstrom, $275 Great trouser jeans with stretch, straight leg, and high-rise waist.
Sandy Liang Neon Fleece Jacket Net-A-Porter, $525 also like the leopard color way. Parsons school graduate Sandy Liang’s New York based label designs casual yet sophisticated pieces for the everyday girl on the street.
Fila Original Chaira Sneaker Shopbop, $80 Classic sporty sneaker by Fila.
