Old-school California in La Jolla

La ValenciaI love the look of vintage California — the sun-washed pastel colors that are soaked with history, accented by those palm trees that only Cali can grow. During my recent trip to La Jolla, I stayed at the fabulous La Valencia, which opened back in 1926. I couldn’t have loved it more! I’m going to share with you all of the info on my La Valencia villa, but I couldn’t resist a sneak peak via this amazing hot tub, which Christy and I jumped right into after our amazing day drinking wine by the ocean. After two years living in the desert of Las Vegas, I don’t take any time near the ocean for granted! And jumping into a hot tub before dinner felt like an extra-special treat.

I was a guest of La Valencia, but all opinions are my own.

  1. What a beautiful little escape! 🙂 So glad you were able to get away. 🙂

  2. I’m surprised you don’t go to the ocean more often. It’s so close to you! And you have those super-sweet, super-cheap Southwest airfares!

  3. Looks amazing! I love all things vintage & Californian.
