I think Santa Barbara might be one of the most beautiful places in California. Nikko and I found ourselves incredibly inspired by the clean white buildings accented with beautiful tilework and sculptural plantwork. Some of this inspiration found its way into my wardrobe - bright colors, dimensional pleats, and breezy, graphic patterns feel so right in a place like this.
I can't help fantasizing about what my alternate universe self's life would be like if I lived here. One thing I know for sure is that most days would involve a trip to the Public Market, which is filled with every possible handcrafted, regionally sourced and sustainable edible delight your heart could desire. Truth be told, I'm already having withdrawals..
