For our big summer trip this year, we decided to take the kids down south to Universal Studios, Disneyland, and Legoland. On our drive down, we stopped at the beautiful Mission Santa Barbara  for a little bit of California history. What kid doesn’t need a little summer history lesson?!

When we left the Bay Area, temperatures hovered in the 90’s, so I chose to wear this flowing, breezy skirt with a lightweight, cotton cropped top. It was the perfect ensemble for beating the heat while on the road! The flowing silhouette, and lightweight fabrics, kept me cool all the way from NorCal to SoCal. Love that!

This skirt is really fun to wear too. I have worn it with a high, stacked heel, for a dressier look, as well as with the flats shown above for comfort. The shoes really make a difference; making the skirt fabulous for day into evening this summer! Love that!

My new Chloe flats were perfect for walking around the mission; and they were also comfortable for driving down the coast! I’m addicted to these flats 😉

The Santa Barbara Mission was a great place to stop with the kids on the drive south. Not only did we get to stretch our legs, and get out of the car, the kids learned about a small part of California history! Who says you can’t mix education and fun?! 

Thanks for stopping by,
