West Coastin’ | Big Sur A Series On Sand + Sun with Guest Blogger Leah.

I can’t really complain about living in Southern California, but sometimes I do wish we were able to see the brilliant fall colors this season showcases. I decided a trip up north would take me to these falls colors and also give me an adventure fix.  So this past weekend I ventured up the coast headed north. With stops in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Cambria we made our way up the narrow roads to Big Sur! We decided to camp – which was chilly but so much fun. Once we pitched our tent we went out to explore what this amazing coastline has to offer. We stopped at McWay Falls, one of my favorite places to visit here and cruised all along the roads stopping in remote places that had the most spectacular views. One thing about going north is it is a little colder than I’m used to, so having some comfy jackets was a must.  Boyfriend jeans are also a perfect camping staple as they slip on easily and make a comfortable and stylish way to keep warm. Here are some snapshots from my adventures and the clothing essentials for a camping trip in Big Sur!

Open Road Style | Laguna Beach

This week’s open road adventure took me to a secluded beach in Laguna. There is nothing better than a little fall weather to provide crisp air, warm sun, and gorgeous, empty beaches. As much fun as summer is I prefer the quietness that comes with the cooler weather. As the vacationers have gone home and school and work take priority in our daily schedules, it is always good to make time to get down to the beach.

My life sometimes feels like one, big, long, ridiculously wonderful adventure—but there are times I feel almost guilty about it. Why is that I find myself sleeping under the stars by a campfire every weekend? How is it that I spend my weeknights running through a forest or rock climbing at sunset?
Ok, having a Sprinter helps. But here’s the thing: I’m no trust fund baby. I work full time. I have a house to clean, dogs to feed, bills to pay, and grass to mow. I think the secret is that I’ve mastered the art of the microadventure. (more…)
