This post is less about the outfit and more about the moment. Carmel, California has carved itself a clear path toward the top of my list of favorite cities in the United States. After enjoying a dreamy breakfast in an alleyway coffee shop and strolling the picturesque streets and hidden passages of its small downtown area, we spent the afternoon cruising Carmel Valley and enjoying a flight at Folktale Winery. Leaving just as the sky was turning pink, we knew we'd be right on time for a memorable sunset and headed west. We found ourselves at the beach as the sun was setting directly between the two trees that framed the beach. All of the locals were out enjoying the sight just as much as we were, and that was one of the most beautiful parts of it all.
