Have you ever been excited to be on the road without knowing the destination? Last weekend, Tom and I hit the road towards Santa Barbara as part 2 of my birthday celebration. Since Tom plans almost all of our shorter road trips, I didn’t know what to expect when we hit the road, but half the fun is not knowing what little surprises will pop up along the way.
We started off in Old Town Santa Barbara. Strolling through the small alleys off the main street brought back beautiful memories of our trip to Spain. Santa Barbara has its own sense of wonderful Spanish charm, and the beautiful homes are just one of many of them.
When I first wore off the shoulder, Spain was the first country I thought of. After all, they are famous for Flamenco, a beautiful style of dance. I have been so obsessed with the off the shoulder trend this season. I had worn them the year before, but with so many great options now, I’m always gravitating towards these ultra feminine pieces. The large frill on this one made me apprehensive when I first tried it on, but when styled with a great pair of distressed denim and a nice pair of heels, I instantly fell in love. It’s so girly and so effortless.
After much exploration for the day, we ended the evening at the Four Seasons Hotel. We dined on the patio facing the beach as the sun went down and finished with a really nice chocolate molten cake.
While I didn’t travel out of country this year for a long celebration, it was as perfect as any other one I had. It’s more important to live in the moment and enjoy all the special surprises life brings us. I hope you all have an incredible adventure this week. One that brings pleasant surprises and lots of laughter!
