Carmel Weekend Getaway

17 December

As mentioned, my guy and I spent this past weekend in Carmel and gosh did we luck out with some unbelievable weather! The sky was an incredible bright blue, the sun was out, and I really didn’t even need a jacket at times. It was almost hard to believe it’s the middle of December. 

Carmel will always be a special place for me. My parents spend most of their anniversaries here and started bringing my sister and I along when we were little. It was also the perfect beach escape during my college years and the first stop my guy and I made along our honeymoon-road-trip. Needless to say, I love this charming beach town. When in Carmel we always start our days with a walk along the beach. Watching the surfers, happy dogs and cute families always makes me smile. Next we head up Ocean Avenue, and hit up a few of our favorites:

Breakfast/Brunch: Katy’s Place
Lunch: Forge in the Forest (sit outside)
Glass of Wine: Mission Ranch
Dinner: La Bicyclette / Casanova
Shopping: GBG* / Paloosh

Here are a few snaps from our sun-shine filled weekend! Sure feelin’ lucky to be in California right now.

* By the way, I went with the black pair–thanks for weighing in! Although I’m still dreaming of owning both as the blue is too fun… oh and this pair. Vince is really bringing the shoe game these days.
