Though we've gone wine tasting in California a few times, and Napa is certainly one of our favorite places, when you're looking for a quick getaway, Santa Barbara is definitely the place to go. About an hour and a half away from LA, Santa Barbara wineries are charming, the wine is delicious and dining is fantastic! So, basically best, best in all possible ways:)!
One of our favorite wineries in Santa Barbara is Sunstone. A big Rose fan, their 14's ROSE is absolutely delicious, so if you ever go, I highly recommend trying it! Aside from their wine selection, I think what we love about Sunstone the most, is how beautiful the grounds are and how relaxed the atmosphere is! A great place to have an outdoor picnic, whenever we go, we make sure to bring a basket of goodies with us! Normally, I prefer Parmesan above all other cheeses, but Emil and I just discovered the creamiest brie, which tastes amazing paired with apricot marmalade, toasted crackers and a glass of white wine or sparkling rose! In fact, it tastes so amazing, we are down right addicted at the moment!:)
Since I can't pack light to save my life, I brought two suitcases full of clothing with me ( Hey, you never know what you might feel like wearing, right? Sometimes it's a dress kinda day and sometimes, it is most definitely not ) but ended up practically living in the outfit I'm wearing in today's post. First, and I am not afraid to say it, I am obsessed with high-waisted shorts! Incredibly comfortable and uber flattering, I love the way they elongate the silhouette and accentuate the waist! Second, bodysuits are the greatest thing that happened to fitted tops ever! What I love about the one I'm wearing today from Express, is the lace up detailing! Well, obviously, since I love details so much! Though to be completely honest with you, I am pretty obsessed with bodysuits at the moment in general and keep being them obsessively in every color imaginable! So, I hope you don't mind seeing quite a bit of them this summer!:)
