The Perfect Angeleno Escape — And The Outfit To Match

I love L.A. (if you don't believe me, just check out all my favorite city haunts here), but even a diehard Angeleno like me has to get out of the city once in awhile. Having a nice little town to escape to for the weekend could be just what you need to find L.A.'s traffic endearing again.

Cambria has been one of my family's favorite travel destinations for years. It’s a sleepy, little beach town off the Pacific Coast Highway with the temperature always hovering in the mid-60s. It’s the local joke that it’s always sweater weather here, and it's totally true. For my jaunt around town, I chose a loose, black-and-white, polka-dot sweater for my crazy packed itinerary of crafting and antiquing.
Once a year, Cambria hosts its Spring Arts and Crafts Fair, but even if you don't make it here then, there are great antique shops, coffee cafes for days, and delicious restaurants all year round. It’s the perfect place for relaxing and unplugging from that crazy L.A. life. For the Mara-approved To Do list in this sleepy town, read on.

Where to stay: Whenever my family and I go to Cambria, we stay at the Cambria Pines Lodge — it looks as quaint as it sounds.
What to eat: Linn's Easy As Pie Café is famous for its Olallieberry Pie — and rightfully so! Robin's has an incredible salmon bisque or go to The Sow’s Ear if you're feeling something fancy.

What to do: Buy cheese from Indigo Moon and a baguette from French Corner Bakery and take a walk along Moonstone Beach. Go to the antique stores along Main Street, drive up to Hearst Castle in San Simeon, and go to Harmony, a tiny town of 18 people that has a pretty glass-blowing studio.
