We spent a weekend in Mendocino about two weeks ago, and explored the beautiful downtown and other local attractions on Saturday. If you missed the first part of my trip recap yesterday, you can see the post here. The town of Mendocino is so charming and picturesque ; the whole village is pretty much walkable and is filled with quaint cafes, boutiques and tons of art galleries. The architecture is of Victorian style, and it was such a pleasure to walk down these cute little streets and alleys on a beautiful spring afternoon.
While you are in town definitely check out GoodLife Bakery and Cafe, the food was absolutely delicious! After the meal we walked along the gorgeous rugged coastline of the Mendocino headlands right by the town. The views are nothing short of incredible, but we warned of crazy strong winds! It was quite the challenge to snap photos there , but nonetheless we had such a lovely time exploring the area.
Other local attractions that we visited and that I highly recommend you add to your list while visiting Mendocino are Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, Jughandle State park and vineyard hopping in Mendocino county if you are an avid wine connoisseur. We skipped the latter since we don’t drink that much, so we just wanted to stick to being out and about in nature.
I wore this stunning striped Faithfull the brand maxi from Lulus for the day when we were in town (below). I love the off the shoulder fit and the leg slit detail in the dress. The adjustible waist tie made it perfect for a day of exploring, paired with these beaded flats also from Lulus.
For dinner later on in the resort I changed to another rust red striped Faithfull the brand number from Lulus. The flouncy off the shoulder ruffle and the waist sash are such adorable details. I wore it with these raffia lace up heels that are such a fun pair for spring/summer that you can pair with so many looks. Make sure to swing by Lulus to check out other amazing spring/summer styles for everyday wear or a weekend getaway.
