Santa Ynez is known for its rolling hills, vineyards galore, and lots of history, shopping and delicious food, making it an excellent location for a date night. Depending on your activity of choice, your outfit can make or break how comfortable you feel. Whether a first date or a monthly date night with your spouse, your outfit is a key piece in constructing your perfect night.
Santa Ynez is known for some of the best vineyards and wineries to visit, so there's no doubt you'll end up at one for a date night. With so many choices, narrowing down which ones should make your list can be hard. Lavender Oak Vineyard, although reservation only, is a beautiful boutique winery. A long time dream of Dean and Christi Heck, Lavender Oak Vineyard was established in 2010 as a family run operation. This means all wines are made in small batches, on their estate, with particular attention to organic methods; no pesticides, herbicides or harmful chemicals. From harvest to bottling & labeling, each bottle is delicately and meticulously composed, a labor of L.O.V. For this excursion, you'll want something you'll feel comfortable moving around in, and what could be better than our Cody Dress? The sexy Cody Dress paired with the demure Front Knot Cardigan is oh-so elegant and the perfect outfit to pair with sneakers or sandals. Throw on some shades and our wide rimmed Joan Hat, and you are set for a day of wine tasting.
DINNER AND DESSERT
If you want to go classic with dinner, you can stop for a bite to eat at S.Y. Kitchen on Faraday Street, right around the corner from our store on Sagunto. They have rave reviews and offer the option to make a dish vegetarian or vegan at your request. Start with the OCTOPUS, and YELLOW BEET (MB's favorites), and then feast on the delicious GIGLI AL ROPETON.
Dress low-key luxe to this hip understated gem. And get this, you can wear the Cody Dress again, but this time reverse the Front Knot Cardigan so the drawstring is in the front, cinch it to exaggerate the bosom and tie it in the back! This unexpected combo gives a completely different look and looks like an entirely different dress. It beautifully highlights each part of the female form and is exquisitely sophisticated and elegant. When we say our designs are versatile, we mean it. We are redefining comfort and style with everyday casual glamour.
After dinner, skip over to the Red Barn for dessert and ask what today's special is. This place has the best homemade desserts, hands down. If you are lucky enough to come on a day when they are serving Strawberry Shortcake - it is worth every last calorie. Simply the BEST.
A sunset drive in Santa Ynez, California, is a romantic and unforgettable choice for a date night. As you and your significant other wind through the scenic roads, you'll be surrounded by stunning views of the rolling hills and vineyards (think Tuscany), illuminated by the warm colors of the setting sun. The serene atmosphere is perfect for intimate conversation, enjoying each other's company, and being inspired by gorgeous scenery. If you're up for it, you may even want to stop for a glass of wine at one of the dozens of vineyards you'll pass along the way.
When embarking on a sunset drive, it's essential to dress comfortably to enjoy the experience fully. Wearing comfortable clothes will allow you to move freely and relax while enjoying the scenic views. Throw some high tops on with the Cody Dress and take some photos.
