Wide Open Spaces

Last week,  I posted about my recent trip to beautiful Santa Ynez.  While I started off in Los Olivos, I saved the best for the last.  And in my opinion, the “best” is  definitely the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail.  If you enjoy gorgeous views, great wine, and wide open spaces, it’s a must-do.  In the spirit of the romantic country scenery, I paired the flirty “Sadie” dress from ‘Laine by Lauren Elaine’ collection, with my favorite cowboy hat.  To take the western edge off, I finished the look off with a pair of combat boots — the perfect choice for stomping grapes, or just stomping around vineyards:)

While I could probably be content to just pull over and take in the scenery, it’s hard to pass up a visit to Firestone.  I’ve yet to even come close to visiting each vineyard along the wine trail, but I always go back to Firestone.  I love their Chardonnay, but more importantly, I love everything about their tasting room, and their sprawling vineyards.

Getting Lost in Los Olivos

At least once a year I take a trip to one of my favorite places in California for a little R & R.  Nestled in the valley just north of Santa Barbara, is the central coast wine region of Santa Ynez, made famous by Sideways.  Several little towns make up the Santa Ynez area- including Solvang, a surreal Danish village (you’d swear you were in Denmark), and my personal favorite, Los Olivos.  The real-life Mayberry (seriously!), Los Olivos is picturesque and perfect.  While enjoying my getaway to Santa Ynez last week, I spent the first day of the trip exploring Los Olivos, and tasting at the neighboring Bridlewood Vineyard (one of my absolute favorites!) It felt like springtime, and so I chose a bohemian look with the new “Medallion” skirt from Laine by Lauren Elaine, paired with a comfy, oversized sweater. SHOP “Medallion” here.

EPILOGUE: Trisha’s Romantic Chiffon

I’m always excited to receive images from brides who have chosen Lauren Elaine Bridal for their special day.  Recently, I received these beautiful pictures from Trisha, of Paris, France.  Trisha worked with one of our international sales reps and selected the “Bella” gown in Softest Ivory chiffon for her romantic wedding in Denmark.  A perfect choice! The rustic, serene location captures the ethereal, carefree spirit of the “Bella” wonderfully,  and I absolutely adore Trisha’s choice of styling with the floral hair accessories and pop of color in her bouquet.  A great example of effortlessly elegant bridal style. Take a look at some of the pictures below!
