Weekend Getaway: Ojai
|K's Rebecca Taylor dress & B's Theodosia Jewelry necklace are from Hampden Clothing – mom won Lucky Magazine's #LuckyBreaks contest and let us pick out some designer items using her $3,000 gift card!!|
Last weekend we headed to Ojai for a little break from the city. Mom has been talking about the little town for awhile now (Reese Witherspoon has a home there!), so she joined us on our adventure!
Once we arrived, our first stop was olive oil tasting at Ojai Olive Oil Company. After sampling some amazing olive oils and trying out their face and lip products, we dropped off our weekender bags and headed to downtown Ojai! We explored the shops and art galleries, searched through the humorous and mystery sections of the famous outdoor bookstore Bart's Books, and quenched our thirst by wine tasting at Casa Barranca. For dinner, we enjoyed the gorgeous weather by dining alfresco at Agave Maria's (AMAZING mexican food & margaritas!).
The next day, we headed to Meditation Mount for some R&R. The view was spectacular & it was surprisingly hard to follow their rule of silence. On our way out of town, we went to lunch at Farmer and the Cook – a delicious vegetarian restaurant featuring organic ingredients harvested from the owner's farm – and then stopped in Malibu on the way home for some gelato at Grom.
We will definitely be going back when we need a break from the city & beach (did I really just say that? Haha).
Where do you like to get away?
