PACIFIC COAST

It's our last hurrah for the summer.  We are off this week, emulating Jack Kerouac and his Beat buddies' bohemian travels down the Pacific Coast.  Well, a less depraved version of their travels anyway.

Carmel and Big Sur summon up coastal California beauty.  Redwoods, cypress trees, rocky beaches, artist colonies.  Especially with Clint Eastwood's stamp in Carmel, I know I'll be packing rugged.  Time for spaghetti western glamor.

Wedges: Miu Miu
Steps: antique
Pottery: Yukari Art

These Miu Miu wedges always make me think of the Pacific Coast -- denim, rivets, leather.  Wild west ingredients.  The only thing missing is a horse.

I hope to be able to catch up on everyone's blogs this week.  It all depends on wi-fi conditions and time not spent in forests or beaches.  Let's all enjoy this last week of summer!

"There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars."

  14. Last week of summer? I wish! We won't see "Fall" until Halloween down here! So envious of your trip... Jack Kerouac is one of my favorite authors. "On the Road", "Desolation Angels"... "The Dharma Bums"... "Satori in Paris"... I could go on and on. Enjoy the life (or diluted version - less bohemian, more bourgeois!) Have a fantastic time and take lots of pics!!

  27. I LOVE all Miu Miu shoes. Just recently discovered that, for some reason I thought that I thought that Miu Miu was weird. Well, now I know that that is NOT the case, and will need to do some serious money saving. After I buy that camera...
