Shopping with the Girls

I tend to stay in my tennis whites most of the time, and when I’m not wearing those, I’m most likely found in sweats and a big t-shirt.  This weekend, however, my friends got the crazy idea that it was time for some more grown-up clothing. (What’s grown-up about clothing anyway?)

So, against my better judgment, we went off on a shopping spree.  Now, mind you, I don’t have tons of money to throw around, but I did actually end up enjoying myself and buying a few cute things (yes, mom, you would approve).

We started at Rains, which I understand has actually been in the village for more than 100 years. That’s pretty cool.  I got a cute sundress there and a great beach hat.  Then, we jutted into Serendipity Toys because it was just too tempting not to.  I picked up a few small toys for my nieces and nephews and had a great time looking around.

Ok…back to shopping. We hit a few more of the hot spots around Ojai and then collapsed for a great cup of coffee and some pastries.

And, of course, no trip to town is complete without popping into Bart’s Books.  Have I mentioned how much I love Bart’s?  I happen to love bookstores, no matter what the ambiance is, but this place is amazing.  It’s a local hotspot (if a bookstore can be a hotspot!) and it’s got the most eclectic mix of books, people and activity that you’ll ever find.

So, all in all it was a successful day.  Now I just have to get my tan going so that I can look cute in the sundress!
