Dinner and Sunset in Montecito

Our end of the Summer mini-vacation included an amazing meal at Plow and Angel at the San Ysidro Ranch.  It is just so beautiful there.  I wore a J. Crew dress that I featured in Stripes and Paisley on the Vineyard.  This time swapping the pops of pink for my favorite leopard print.  The dress is so easy to wear and is a great neutral shirting stripe that can be styled so many ways.

Enjoying the beautiful grounds after dinner.

Dinner at or absolute favorite restaurant.  It is rare to find a place with such amazing food for adults and healthy options that are appealing to kids too.

Then we headed back to Butterfly Beach and The Biltmore for sunset.

Crazy for Leopard

It is no secret that I love leopard print, so I naturally “leopardize”.  I am fluent in speaking J. Crew.  I featured this Drake’s silk shirt a couple of weeks ago with a white skirt in Pinking into Fall.  I love how different it looks with the leopard cardigan and black jeans.

Lofty Leopard

I discovered a new coffee place during our recent visit to San Diego.  Lofty Coffee Company is amazing.  I first visited their Solana Beach cafe.  They roast their own coffee nearby in Encinitas as well as bake their own pasties from scratch.  They have house made almond milk and hazelnut milk, which makes all the difference for me.  I had an iced salted caramel latte with almond milk and I had to go back the next day for another.  They also have great healthy, natural food options.  We stopped by the Encinitas location on our way home (it is an easy stop from Interstate 5).

I took a little break from pink and decided to leopardize (read more on how to “speakjcrew”here)  since leopard print goes so well with coffee.  I am loving this new leopard print blouse.  It goes so well with my J. Crew Ryan sunglasses, black toothpick jeans and cashmere cardigan.
