No matter how deep your affection for our city runs, don't pretend you don't need a break from L.A. sometimes. The only downside? Picking where to go.
If you're after a quick beach getaway, we've made it easy. Our advice: Pack a few essentials (sandals, sunnies, and a light jacket) and take the 101 north to the quaint seaside town of Santa Barbara. It's only two hours from downtown proper, but a world away in spirit. To get the scoop on how to fill your day, we sent YouTuber Evelina Barry to visit Samantha Wennerstrom, the Santa Barbara-based blogger behind Could I Have That. Push play for your expert S.B. itinerary.
On Evelina: American Apparel sweater and skirt, ASOS sandals, Persol sunglasses. On Samantha: Apiece Apart dress, Luv AJ ring, Samantha's own shoes and hat, Miu Miu sunglasses.
