Santa Barbara outfit ideas

July 28, 2015

Hey guys! I’m finally back from a whirlwind month of travel and sitting in my office for the first time in a very long time. Even though my work domain is essentially an oversized closet with no windows, I’ve got a nice candle burning and am pretty happy to be sitting here with only the sound of my fingers tapping the keyboard. Finding time to blog has been impossible and totally rushed lately, so I’m pumped to have a few weeks of calm before another burst of travel later next month. I really should be catching up on paying bills, but first things first, let’s talk fashion.

I wanted to share a few outfits I wore in Santa Barbara over the past few weeks because well, that’s what us bloggers do. And also I’m working on birthing (yes that’s what these endeavors feel like at times) another section of L. Avenue very soon. In September, I’m launching an area of the blog entirely dedicated to travel; where to go, what to pack where to stay and what to do once you get there. If I could have chosen any career in the world for myself it would be to write travel reviews for a legit magazine. Sadly, schlepping around two babies 24/7 isn’t exactly practical for this gig. Actually, that would fall into the insanity box. But I still squeeze in as much travel as possible mostly with and occasionally without the kids. Some people think I’m a total loon for packing in as much as I do, but it’s what makes me tick. Luckily, I have a hubby who’s pretty supportive of my can’t sit still mentality too. I digress.

So here are a few of my go-to looks from my time in Santa Barbara. One of the things I love the most about this beyond fabulous Cali town is that it’s super laid back and causal. Lots of denim and neutrals filled my suitcase for this trip. And SB is a flats town too. Wearing heels in SB feels like lunching at In-N-Out burger in sequins, so I stuck to this pair most days. And for cool Cali nights a jean jacket or cardigan are perfect layering pieces. Oversized sweaters are my jam right now and this one is so soft and perfect for cool evenings. In the words of the Grease cast (omg, blast from the past!), “bu-ut oh, those suuuummer niiiiights!”
