It’s a beautiful day in Kennett Square, PA and you can’t think of a better way to spend it than a stroll through the pristine Longwood Gardens. With over 1,000 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows you are able to fully lose yourself in the beauty around you. When the sun starts to set you make your way through the fountain gardens and back to the parking lot so you can take a short drive to Portabello’s to enjoy the creative dinner using the locally-grown mushrooms Kennett Square is known for.
If you’re spending a day in San Antonio, TX you need an outfit that will take you through the day in style and comfort and our Outfit of the Day featuring our River Walk Palazzo Pants, Perfect Crop Top, and Rainbow Rock Necklace.
After a day at The Alamo you head over to the San Antoino River Walk to take advantage of all the activities walking along the river has to offer. So, maybe between meandering through La Villita and a good night’s rest at Hotel Contessa you could grab the best burger of your life at the Lone Star Cafe 😉
Asheville, NC is absolutely beautiful this time of year! It’s a great time of year to get out and about to try something new… Maybe stop by Asheville Yoga Center for a “Slow Flow” class before you grab some brunch at the famous Tupelo Honey Cafe! Best part is, in this OOTD from Wild Souls you’ll be able to go straight from class to brunch without a wardrobe change 😉
After stepping off the plane in Tampa all you want is a burger and a cold beer, but first you have to check into your room at the Postcard Inn – St. Pete Beach. So, after throwing your suitcase down in your “Surfer Chic” room you take the recommendation of the local at the front desk and head over to The Sloppy Pelican. You sit on the back patio overlooking the beautiful water and you enjoy an ice cold beer as you watch pelicans diving for dinner. When the waitress sets down a perfectly cooked burger and fries and you take the first bite, you think, “It doesn’t get much better than this.”
Invoke a bit of 60s magic with our Outfit of the Day featuring our “Perfect Crop Top” in navy, “Haight-Ashbury Palazzo Pants“, and “Druzy Crystal Necklace” in gold. Picture yourself strolling down Haight Street in San Francisco – maybe you stop by “Gallery 683” to check out some tribal art or “The Booksmith” to pick up some literature on Hippie History before you grab a beer and appetizer from “Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery.” No matter where your day takes you – this comfortable and cute outfit will help take you there.
Today’s Outfit was inspired by my trip to Big Sur, CA. Not only because I was wearing these pants on the drive there , but because the colors of the palazzo pants were reminiscent of all the brilliant and beautiful scenery of Highway 1: the wildflowers growing on the hillside, the purple sand in the beaches, and the brilliant blues and greens of the ocean. We saw so many beautiful scenes as we whirled up the Pacific Highway… and I was super comfortable in my Palazzo Pants for the whole drive.

After waking up in lovely Santa Barbara, CA we continued our journey up Highway 1. As we took in all the amazing scenery, our bellies began to growl so we stopped in Morro Bay for lunch… Morro Bay was a very cute little town with some great shops and places to eat, but we decided to dine at Blue Skye Bistro “On the Bay”. The view of the bay was nice and we could hear seals playing in the harbor (though we never caught a glimpse of one) while we we waited on lunch. I had Shrimp Tacos with grilled potatoes and it was all very good (I couldn’t get enough of the avocados in California).
With food in our bellies we drove further north towards San Simeon and Hearst Castle – this is where the view from Highway 1 really becomes truly breathtaking. We stopped once to take it all in and to pose for a couple of pictures in the disagreeable wind 😉
We made our way to Hearst Castle which was a truly unique and amazing experience! If you ever find yourself on the West Coast I strongly suggest this tour. We learned a lot and it was really fun to tour the grounds afterward on our own. The stories about William Randolph Hearst were very interesting, but I was amazed by the architect, Julia Morgan, who was not only the first female architect in California but who was just king of a badass in general… I very much look forward to reading her biography in the near future.
After Hearst Castle we continued the 90 minute winding, twisting, beautiful drive to Big Sur, CA via Highway 1… to our 2-night home in beautiful Big Sur, CA.
Hotel: Big Sur River Inn – I can’t begin to express my love for this hotel! It’s a truly wonderful place to escape. The rooms were cozy and clean and on the premises there is a nice restaurant, a pub, a pool, a general store, gas pumps, gift shops, and a lovely place to enjoy a meal on the river. The cost is about $150/ a night , but that’s pretty good for Big Sur.
For dinner we had dinner at the River Inn Restaurant and it was absolutely delicious! We started with the Calamari which was some of the best I’ve ever had – caught locally in Monterey 😉 After deliberating over the mouth-watering menu I decided on the “Pasta Castroville” which consisted of chicken and artichokes in a creamy pesto sauce over pasta. Gary had the “Smoked Beef Brisket” both were superb!
What I Wore: I received so many compliments on this outfit! The tank top fit perfectly and these Palazzo Pants are excellent for travel! They don’t wrinkle, so you can just throw them in your suitcase and the waistband was very comfortable for sitting in the car for a large chunk of the day.
