Editorial » Carmel By The Sea
My husband and .I recently went on a long weekend getaway to the breathtakingly beautiful Carmel by the Sea. We stayed in a boutique hotel at the top of the hill overlooking the small city, cliff-sides, and ocean. It was a relaxing and romantic break from the daily grind that was so needed for us. We spent a Saturday exploring the quaint downtown area complete with a plethora of local boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants and even small cobblestone passageways reminiscent of an adorable European village.

We started our morning with a casual breakfast in a local coffee shop. I am passionate about supporting local small businesses and Carmel was the perfect place to do so. Roaming the streets and shops with a coffee in hand and my sweet husband by my side made for the perfect Saturday morning. We treated ourselves to lunch alfresco and an afternoon of wine tastings.
The weather in Carmel can vary from chilly to a slight breeze to a beautiful sunny afternoon. We certainly experienced a bit of each during our stay. I dressed for our outing by layering one of the Worthington Corners lightweight collection scarves over a light blouse with flared jeans and wedges. Some of the streets are cobble and paver stone and the flat bottom of a wedge was much easier and comfortable on the uneven surfaces.
