Monterey
Friday, July 08, 2016 38 Comments Images


Hello lovelies and a very happy Friday to all of you! Today is a beautiful day and I hope this finds you all doing well, being kind to your neighbor, and in good spirits. Today's post comes to you from Monterey, California. Brod and I spent a day and half there last week for a work project we were there on, and had a few hours the first day to explore the Monterey Penisula and Carmel area. It was our first time in that area of California and let me tell you that it was dreamy. What a gorgeous place, we drove downtown Monterey and ate some lunch, then took off on the 17-mile drive and stopped along the coast and at Pebble Beach and just took it all in. Of course Brod was in heaven because the place is practically a golfer's heaven, but I must admit that I thought it was quite amazing as well. The fog mixed with the coastline and tree-lined roads kind of took you to another world. There were times when we were driving that I thought are we in Scotland? Then at other times I thought are we on the Oregon Coast, and then I thought, is this San Franscisco? Or is Monterey just a combination of all those places and what makes them cool. After walking the shops in Carmel, we headed back north towards San Jose and had some car ride jam sessions and long chats. I love being on a little road trip with Brod because we always have the best chats and laughs. Sometimes in life, all I need is a good chat and a good laugh. Simple things, but they really mean a lot to me. Any how, I hope you enjoy these pics from our little trip to Monterey and may you all have a wonderful weekend! Be safe and love all you can!

  5. Hi Cara! Looking gorgeous as ever! I loved your post - I live in Scotland, and think it's so funny that you compared it to California - although my country is so beautiful, we have so much rain and today is a chilly 15 degrees C! Two years ago my husband and I made our first Cali trip and visited Carmel and Monterey which was lovely. I especially loved quaint Carmel. Have you ever been to Scotland? You mentioned your husband is a bit of a golf fanatic - the British Open is just down the road from us in Troon next week. Love your stunning photos so much, especially the one of you spinning around with your back to camera- so natural and full of the joy of life!

    1. Yes we went a few years ago to Edinburgh and we both loved it! It's definitely on our list of places to visit again, we need more time there. I think we lucked out though when we were there because it was fairly warm and sunny. My husband was able to golf Saint Andrews and was in heaven! Thanks so much for your sweet comment!

  7. I don't ever comment on posts really but I follow several fashion bloggers and I love that you actually write about things that you do and ideas about the world and perspective, etc. Most people will just say here's what I wore! But I really enjoy reading your blog because the sentiment is so refreshing, uplifting and interesting.

  9. Hi Cara, my husband's sister lives in Monterey/Pacific Grove so my husband and I are lucky, we get to spend so much time there! I recognize one of the streets in your pics and I'm hoping you guys dined at Victorian Corner (amaaazing breakfast)? Check out Restaurant 1833 too sometime if you get the chance, such a cool dinner spot! The food, meh, but the ambiance is worth it!

    1. You are so lucky you get to spend so much time in Monterey! We didn't dine at that restaurant, I wish I would have known about it sooner. There's always next time:) Thanks for the recommendation!

  10. Your style is so cute and I love how you added a leather jacket over this dress. It gave you an extra sense of edginess that I love! You are so lucky you are still able to wear one because it is so hot here in Arizona I am jealous! Also, I am still in love with that Louis Vuitton backpack and have been really wanting one lately. I hope you have a great time in Monterey!
