The Great Escape

Shorts - Tommy Hilfiger, Top - Vince Camuto, Jacket - Very, Flats - Target, Backpack - Mojo, Jewelry - Chloe + Isabel

Last weekend Justin and I got out of LA for a few days and spent some time playing tourist in Ojai, Ca. Since relocating to the west coast, we've been on a perpetual quest to uncover new hidden getaways. Weekend trips are one of our favorite ways to clear our heads and with Justin waste deep in developing two TV shows, escaping from the city was needed more than ever. While searching for the perfect picnic location we spotted this charming lake, which felt like a fresh bite of the east coast. The stunning silhouette of Cali mountains lingering in the distance never fails to give me goose bumps, while simultaneously pushing all of life's nonsense to the back burner. 

What's your favorite way to escape?

  26. Love the classic trench! We are fans of the overnight trip as well, its long enough to feel like you have been somewhere, but not so long that packing is a chore (it is harder when you're packing for kids too)!

  35. That shirt is so pretty and I love those shorts paired with it! At first glance they look like polka dots, but what a pleasant surprise to see those super cute anchors. Impeccable style, as always.

  36. Love the texture and detail of that top! And paired with the printed short is so cute!

  37. Those are the cutest shorts, and I love how unexpected the anchors are. That sounds like a lovely way to escape... When I desperately need to escape, I tend to go for a walk around campus. Since my campus is a giant almost two mile sprawl in the middle of the city, it takes a while, so it's pretty good for escaping to deal with whatever's going on. The downside is that I'm kind of out of luck if I need anything longer than the hour that takes.
