Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of my favorite places to walk and shop.  Clint Eastwood was once the mayor!  Yep, the movie star Clint.  The shops are cute and have an artsy posh vibe.  There is a bit of everything from stationary, clothes, art and more art to window shop.  All the stores are uber expensive so window shopping there is a fun time.  The streets are tough on heals but great on the glutes!  And, all the main streets lead to a stunning beach.  I found myself in Carmel-by-the-Sea (just Carmel for us locals) last week for a cooking lesson and I thought why not do a quick photo op while I was there.

This top is really a dress!  I posted about it last month here.  It is so comfy and tucks into a pair of jeans for a perfect casual look.

    I love the top, the food, the sunglasses, the shoes, the sunshine – I love everything about that I see, but most of all the look of relaxation being at this place seemed to have given you! Thanks for sharing such bliss. 🙂

    Love the pics! It really is a great place for a photo op! I’ve never been there and I didn’t know Clint Eastwood was ever a mayor of a town. I learn new things everyday! Thanks for sharing.

    Really cute outfit. I have never been to Carmel, but will add it to my To Visit list :). Taking a cooking lesson looks like fun, but my eggs would probably not look at pretty. Ok, I am hungry now. Thank you for the great visuals.

    I adore little towns like that. They are so cute, and quant, and there’s always the best little shops. That outfit is cute as a bug, and looks super comfy for a day off sight seeing.
