I absolutely love Turkish towels (aka Pestemals) and have several that I use as scarves/wraps and beach blankets. But when I spotted this Turkish towel poncho at a local artisan’s market in Venice, it was so unique I just had to have it! The Handloom is a local company that “blends traditional Turkish culture and the Southern California sun.”

I wore it on an afternoon outing to Malibu Wines and it was the perfect layer — not too warm for the daytime, but for when the sun started to go down. It comes in other colors, but I loved the creamy light color. And I can see it looking great with a long sleeve white tee later in the fall!

Malibu Wines

After my work trip in California I spent the weekend in Los Angeles with my friend Kristen. I had a super long bucket list of all the things I wanted to do and amazingly we hit everything on the list! One of the things I wanted to do was go wine tasting in Malibu. Even though it was a little overcast, we packed a picnic and headed over to Malibu Wines.

Was super excited to spend some QT with these lovebirds! Kristen and Lyman got engaged in April in Napa Valley, just like Doug and I!

It was fun to meet some of Kristen and Lyman’s friends, David and Cathy. We also hung out with them on Sunday at the Hermosa Beach Festival.

The table next to us left a pretty impressive wine glass sculpture when they headed out. You can’t see from this angle, but all of the adirondack chairs had wine glass holders carved into the arms!
