Oh, Ojai. Where do I start? Really, it’s a tiny little town. Village-y, if you will. But it’s like the perfect little snack of a place to go for a few days to recharge. It’s like a vacay appetizer.

We took off on a Tuesday from LA, and would have been there in an hour flat if we didn’t stop at the J.Crew Factory store on the way. (Duh.) After we rolled into the Ojai Rancho Inn I pretty much dropped all of our bags and ran off with a camera, leaving Mr. Lovely to fend for himself. This place is too cool for school. I felt like I was definitely in the cool kids club for a couple of days. It’s got a throwback summer camp vibe (somebody asked on my Instagram if we were on the set of the Dirty Dancing movie!) with updated touches — indigo tie-dye curtains, woven leather lawn chairs, and cruiser bikes that you can borrow on the honor system. You can chill out by the pool, roast in the sauna, build yourself a fire in the evening, hang out in a teepee (!!!), and admire the crazy collection of cacti on the property. The owners, Chris and Kenny, are so sweet and kind. I’m on team Rancho all the way, if you ever need a spot to stay in Ojai. See photos of the Ojai Rancho Inn and read about the rest of our trip!

Oh haaayyyy, Ojai! I know, I know, a super original joke. I just can’t help it. I’m taking off today for a teeny mini-vacay with Mr. Lovely, and we’re heading just a bit outside the city to Ojai. Can’t wait for some time to relax, chill out, get recharged, and have a little belated birthday celebration.

If you’ve ever been to Ojai I’d love to hear your tips! We’re looking for great spots to eat, pretty hikes, fun shops, and everything in between. So let me know if you have any recommendations. Stay tuned this week, though, because I have some killer stuff coming up that you won’t want to miss (here’s a hint: Palm Springs peeks, giveaways, DIYs, and more!). xoxo
