Brief Relief - Santa Barbara


In an attempt to escape the heat we headed up the coast to Santa Barbara for a few hours. We browsed the farmer's market on State Street, ate delicious Mexican, and grabbed ice cream cones on our way out...

Tell me friends, do you have elaborate ways to escape the heat? 

I'm off to the beach again... August and September are our hottest months! 
One more to go and then we're in the clear!

Love the dress! And no.. in the Netherlands it is getting quite cold again. Well, not really cold but cold compared to Thailand and Spain. I was wearing a scarf..

Love your dress... and all the pictures.
No real summer in Paris this year. Alleluia ! It was the perfect weather for reinterpreting "Vacances Romaines" behind my lover on the Vespa, wind in the hair... Loved it !
Hope you've got enough ice creams to stay fresh and lovely for the next month ;)
