Postcard from Baja: Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch on Vacation

Last week, I jetted off to Baja for a friend’s wedding, and we stayed in the most unbelievable mansion, Hacienda Cerritos. There were pools everywhere you turned, a lush courtyard, and gorgeous tiles and columns. The Cerritos Beach Club and a good surf break were right below the Hacienda, and Todos Santos was just a short drive away. We spent the day surfing and exploring Todos Santos, and then attended the wedding at night. It was a gorgeous intimate affair, and the bride wore a tiered Rebecca Taylor dress from Shopbop.

I packed primarily Haute Hippie dresses, skirts, and knits for the trip. The fashion-forward items are great anchors for your vacation wardrobe, while casual pieces from the HHN line make the perfect wear-withs. I also threw two Theodora & Callum scarves in my bag—the most ideal travel wear! They work as scarves or skirts, and they come in such sublime prints. For the wedding, I wore a green floor-length Issa dress—effortless and elegant.

The best part of my trip: visiting THE Hotel California and eating plenty of shrimp tacos!
