On the Road Again- Summer Style

Taking the road less traveled again! Recently, Amber and I (of Ambersnotebook), went off the beaten path for a weekend excursion to Rincon, CA just outside of San Diego.
It was odd driving through windy country roads lined with palm trees, lemon groves and tumble weed. Amber and I stopped off at one of the groves to shoot the perfect road trip style featuring Lucky Brand Jeans and scarf and my Summer Zara top.

Sometimes, you just need to get the heck out of dodge to experience a bit of adventure.

Running Down to the Riptide

Rachael Dickhute in Oye Swimwear- 'Stella'

Oye Swimwear 'Stella' One Piece

It's time to surf! Surfing has been something on my list for many years since moving from the East Coast to California of 'things to do'. (Also on the list is learn to bake, but that's not happening anytime soon)
Surfing seems like such a disciplinary act- wake up at the crack of dawn to squeeze into and uncomfortable body glove and then jump into freezing cold shark infested waters to then exert your entire body to the max. Amazing! You have to be truly dedicated to the process to repeat more than once a year, in my opinion, and people do it daily!
I was originally inspired by a photo shoot I found a few years back from Vogue (see below) with Blake Lively. I thought, if she can do it, so can I! (the photo shoot, not the surfing)
I found the perfect one piece by Oye Swimwear, an amazingly innovative brand from Turkey, and they even have one named 'Rachael'! 

So I went running down to the riptide!
