Dress: For Love & Lemons

While this week is my anniversary with my boyfriend, we celebrated it early with a trip to the central coast. I anticipated a pretty low key anniversary this year, but I was thoroughly surprised that my boyfriend booked a wonderful oceanview room at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands last weekend.

It’s still a decent drive to make it feel like we are actually on vacation. We love Carmel so much that we have talked about possibly retiring here.

I couldn’t think of a better time than to bring it out for the occasion. I wore it for dinner but before that we did the 17-mile drive and took some amazing photos before sunset. If you haven’t driven down the 17-mile, make it a point if you’re ever in the central coast.

I will tell you this much, it’s not easy and glamorous as I have tried to portray here. California beaches are pretty chilly and the winds are so strong that my hair is literally whipping around everywhere. However, I’m truly happy about the end result despite the obstacles. Next time I’ll experiment with golden hour photos in a warmer area!
