Over the holiday break, the boys and I spent a couple of days in Ojai. It really is such a cute and special place. Though it still has the same small-town charm I remembered from my last visit (several years ago), there are some really great new additions to the area. Here's a look inside of our little winter getaway.
We started our trip off with a bang, eating this completely delicious brunch at Knead Baking Company in town. This artisan, family-run bakery serves house-made bagels, super fresh salads, organic eggs and fresh-squeezed OJ. We truly loved it and will definitely be going back.
Knead's cute and quaint setting.
I have officially named deKor & Co. Ojai's best and most stylish one-stop-shop. They have everything from furniture, to clothing, to cosmetics, to homewares, (in addition to a tea bar!) and so much more. I could've stayed and explored the store all afternoon.
The shop exclusively carries cult cosmetic brand Face Stockholm and offers in-store and at-home make-up application and tutorials.
So many gorgeous treasures. Heart eyes all the way.
Walking through the town under its beautiful Spanish archways.
Another major point for Ojai is their health food store (and the fact that they have one!), Rainbow Bridge.
Cute country vibes in Rainbow Bridge.
And here's another major point-score for the town of Ojai - their huge park and playground, Libbey Park. This place was Brixton's dream.
The park comes complete with a turf hill, for all of your box sledding needs!
The park is also home to The Libbey Bowl, a beautiful 973-seat outdoor amphitheater.
We arrived at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa as the sun was going down. It gets pretty chilly there on winter nights, so we were ready for a warm dinner and our cozy room.
These handmade baskets at the entrance of their gift shop caught my eye.
We ate dinner at the resort's Oak Restaurant. I had their "Green & Spicy" signature cocktail with a kick.
Brixton had to make a few calls before bedtime.
Good morning from the golf course.
Brekky was the California Scramble, bacon and berries. All food groups covered! ;)
Their newly renovated (adult only) Indigo Pool.
You sure are beautiful, Ojai! Thanks for the lovely getaway! xx
