Folk Festival

This is what I wore to our big horseback riding and wine tasting trip on Sunday!

The inspiration was from the H&M Catalog:

Funny how I purchased two kimonos including the one I am wearing here 2 years ago and now they are totally in fashion and popping up all over….

Wore booties for horseback riding and switched to wooden platforms afterwards…

Kimono Blouse - Shop Ruche
Top - Forever 21
Jeans - Victoria's Secret
Necklaces - one is a gift, the other one Zapata
Booties - Betsey Johnson
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

Had an amazing trip with friends on Sunday. Started ridiculously early and my wonderful husband volunteered to be the designated driver and picked up our 3 other couple friends from their houses and we headed to Temecula for our 9 AM horseback riding….
If you can believe it 4 of our friends (including my husband) had never been on a horse before! Me, the girl from Turkey that lead a city life had been on it 3 other times, always on some adventure tour in a foreign country. So I was less nervous and smart enough to ask for a well behaved horse as I had my moments with horses that loved to lead and ran ahead of guides.
The ride was nice and peaceful. And even though it sucked to get up so early we were happy we were doing the early ride before the weather got super hot and dusty.
Unfortunately though the ride was not as pleasant as it was for us for one of our friends. His saddle was not buckled in correctly and he slid off of his horse. We were too ahead to see it but heard about it. He was a trooper and got back on it but we could see that horse was at war with herself during the whole ride trying to turn and bite him and whipping her head and tail constantly. We all kept our horses at a distance to avoid him spooking ours.

After the ride and after we cleaned up our friends wounds we headed to our scheduled champagne brunch at a winery nearby. We took our time and enjoyed the food and company for quite a while.

That was followed by two tastings and time just flew by.

The trip ended with a very classy trip to 'Del Taco' before heading back to San Diego back to our kids and family responsibilities.

What a great escape….
