Santa Barbara, California | City Guide

Santa Barbara, California | City Guide

Date: September 28, 2015 | Location: Santa Barbara, California

This past weekend I helped photograph a wedding near Santa Barbara, so we chose to spend the whole weekend there, exploring uncharted California territory. Clayton and I found an Airbnb (Loved their house, especially that chair >>> ) near town and as I worked on Saturday, he found a place to watch the Auburn game. #wareagleanyway :(


On Sunday, a full day of exploring began. We only had a few hours to squeeze in all of the things on our list. (I actually hate traveling that way, but we couldn't leave Santa Barbara without experiencing a few long awaited locations). Our day looked something like this:   

Morning coffee: Handle Bar Coffee

Lunch: Lilac Patisserie

Ice Cream: McConnell's


After Ice Cream, (highly recommend the Eureka Lemon & Marionberries) we took a drive up to Montecito to view a couple of the missions and a market place! Pretty cool stuff. We did, however, save the best for last: Dinner at The Lark. Oh my. This place-- atmosphere + food… insanely good. You're going to want to hang out here all night, so bring your appetite.     


Hope you all had a great weekend! Links to a simple outfit combo below!
