What Do I Bring: Santa Barbara & Montecito

I know, I know. It's been a hot minute since I've been on here. The last few days have been a flurry of me trying to prepare for a this holiday weekend. Charlesband and I are heading to Montecito (it's in the Santa Barbara area) this weekend for a little vaca & a friend's wedding.

It's been a year or so since our last real getaway and Mr. Merlin isn't coming with us this time, so there were tons of preparations that had to be done. That coupled with the stresses of work in general has left both of us in real need of some serious unplugging and poolside lounging.

There's been a heatwave here in LA, but much to my chagrin, it seems the Santa Barbara area is going to be a cool 75 degrees during our entire stay. So much for that fantasy of sitting poolside with a book and bobbing around in the water every few minutes, but I'm hoping the pool is heated and, if nothing else, we'll be bummin' around in the hot tub at some point.

So, what am I bringing with me on this 4 day excursion? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here's the rundown...


I'm keeping things SUPER simple. Items that I don't mind getting wet at the beach, are easily cleanable, easily packable, and won't wrinkle like crazy. The bikini is just my wishful thinking...or, perhaps, what I'll be wearing while I live in the hot tub. I had to make sure I had enough things to layer with too since the evenings get chilly and I'm a wimp against the cold.

That and turbans. My new love. The perfect thing to make it look like I have fancy hair when, in fact, it's just bedhead in a pretty package. Nothing beats that. I'll write more on these little beauties later.

We'll be 84 steps from the beach (or so the inn claims.) It's exactly what I've been craving...to sit by the sea. A little time away without any responsibilities...aside from rehearsal dinners and a wedding. Charlesband got a pretty snazzy suit too. Speaking of the wedding, I've purposely removed my wedding & rehearsal dinner attire from my collage. That'll be for Sunday Styles! And maybe I'll be able to get Charlesband to get in on it too.

Hope you're all getting ready for a wonderful, relaxing weekend full of nothing or everything or something in between. Whatever it is, I hope it's covered in BBQ sauce. Alright. Off to finish some last minute errands...just need to get through my work day tomorrow and then I'm home freeeeeee!

Have a great holiday! xo!
