the days of going to summer camp may be over for us 30-somethings, but you know what’s better than camp (ok, maybe a lot of things)? girls weekends. especially when they involve wine, shopping and hipster hotels. let’s go to ojai, k?
plus there’s a store called summer camp (stalk them on insta, seriously), where you can buy trinkets like pretty little pyramids that “rid bad vibes,” which are way better than those braided bracelets you used to take home from camp.
here’s the low down on where to eat/drink/sleep/shop:
- eat: do as the vegans do and eat at The Farmer and The Cook. i also think about the breakfast sandwich i ate at Knead Baking Company, like, often.
- drink: like the locals and head to Chief’s Peak. They have a charcoal-infused kombucha beer. Couldn’t make this stuff up if i tried.
- sleep: at the Ojai Rancho Inn. Cause the photo opps are endless (just wait until you see the pool).
- shop: at Summer Camp and buy everything with the word “vibes” on it. we also just about died when we walked into Tipple & Ramble.
and don’t forget to bring the babes (and like 2 hats, several sunnies and 6 pairs of shoes because you just never know). until next time, ojai. xo, mo.
