Stevie Nicks, Mama Cass and Me

My wonderful husband surprised me with three days in Ojai, California!  Just a little getaway, but a lovely treat!  For those of you, like me, who have never been to Ojai, it's a beautiful, quaint, picturesque town with its own style.  The vibe here is very bohemian-think Stevie Nicks crossed with Mama Cass.( and anybody who has to say "Who's Mama Cass"  is off my Christmas card list!).

I'm really enjoying wearing my jeans and sweaters here.  It's a great place for hand knit sweaters in bright colors and long scarves that can cover your ears on chilly nights.  I wore a black velvet bomber over a burgundy sweater last night and felt right , but the previous night I wore a maxi dress with boots and felt equally comfortable.  Then, at night I sat in front of the fire in our room, wearing a cashmere track suit and bright lilac Uggs slippers and felt comfy/cozy.  Comfort is more important than appearance but the style of the place is undeniable, proving yet again that "trend is today, but style is forever"!
