Does anyone else get a major Spring itch to travel right about this time of year?! Like, I just need a break from reality and an adventure! One of the things I love most about living is Southern California is how easy it is to escape on a quick getaway to so many amazing destinations and all just a few hours away. This weekend the bestie and I decided to visit one of my FAVORITE destinations, Bruma in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja Mexico for a little spring wine tasting. If you aren’t familiar with Valle de Guadalupe let me introduce you, Valle is Mexican wine and culinary country and one to not be missed! It’s just a little under 2 hours from San Diego and so perfect for a quick getaway!
We stayed at the beautiful Hotel Bruma Casa 8 — talk about an escape to paradise. Set in the Guadelupe valley, this boutique hotel doubled as a winery (double win!!) and we immediately fell in love with the breathtaking views, peaceful atmosphere and utter beauty that surrounded us. By day, we hit the wineries and explored the Mexican terrain and then by night we ate at some of the most amazing restaurants I’ve ever been to — one of our favorites Fauna, was even awarded the best restaurant in Mexico and we agree!! And OMG . you guys they have the cutest little mascot! Scroll down to see my new cutie friend!
With all of this traveling and beautiful excursions, I had to ensure I had the perfect fashion pieces to marry it to. That said, finding the perfect pieces that are in seasonal style AND cope with the weather wherever I travel is not the easiest task! One of the biggest trends this Spring is animal print, and I am SO here for it because you can find animal print in everything from shoes, bags, clothing and even headbands. Since springtime in Valle de Guadalupe is pretty chilly, I wanted to pair this trend with the cooler weather and turned to one of my favorite and go-to retailers, Intermix, to do just that. If you’ve been following me for a while or are new to my blog (hi hi new friends) you know Intermix is one of my go to places to shop for because I can always find something special that no other retailer carries! They have such a killer selection of exclusives and I LOVE their Intermix private label. I own this sweater and LOVE!
Ok, now back to the animal print… As I knew we’d be walking around in the rugged wine terrain, I went with these insanely cool Golden Goose Sneakers that I had been fawning over for months! They were the perfect chic-but-comfortable addition to every outfit during my trip. Even in my day to day life, I live in sneakers BUT I like them to have personality; case and point animal print sneaks for the win! I get a lot of questions if Golden Goose sneaks are worth the investment and let me just tell you YES! They look effortless with skirts, jeans, dresses and just add so much to a look. I wear them so much that it’s a no brainer investment and the fact that these are exclusive makes them extra special! I did a little pattern mix with this cozy zebra print cardigan that I’m totally going to pair with my leather pants and heels a date night in the city! I decide on a chic sleeveless bodysuit to give me shape and because I can easily wear this bodysuit all summer and spring.
Lastly you know I love my denim all day everyday and these FRAME jeans are so good! Loving the heavy distressing and light blue wash, so perfect for traveling everywhere this spring!
