August 3, 2016

After a few particularly busy weeks ( we're finalizing a big trip coming up in the next 2 weeks, getting ready for Fashion Month in September, and of course working on new content for VivaLuxury ), Emil and I reached a tipping point and decided that we needed to leave the hustle and bustle of LA for a little while.

We didn't want to travel somewhere far, and after considering a few of our all time favorites like Laguna Beach ( see our recent adventures here ) and Santa Barbara ( check out a recent post on our favorite SB wineries here ), we decided to try something new and headed to Ojai.

Just a quick drive from LA, we fell in love with Ojai the moment we saw it! The city is absolutely gorgeous, yet I think what we enjoyed about Ojai the most is the multitude of activities it offers like hiking, biking, dining, wine tasting and shopping of course! :) So, if you're considering a trip to Ojai, I definitely recommend it! There is so much to do and see, you won't be disappointed!

What a beautiful destination for a quick get away!

I also adore your gorgeous dress - the cut is so cool, it looks almost as though you are wearing a jacket over! Plus the way you've coordinated the colours of the dress and the shoe, beautiful!

I'm also in love with your earrings!! I love a good evil eye/eye motif in general!

Hope you had an amazing trip!
