Old Town San Juan … and the Ramos Cafe

Sunday was a drizzly day here 
in Socal
so it was the perfect opportunity
to wear one of my favorite outfits to
Old Town San Juan Capistrano
for lunch at the iconic Ramos Cafe.

I love everything about this outfit
down to my cowboy boots 
that were a perfect fit for Old Town.

I have been collecting the pieces for this outfit for years
the ultra wide legged pants by Walter
are still one of my favorites.

I look for every opportunity when it's chilly
to wear my
Alpaca fedora
from my favorite hat store in Napa
The Montetcristi Panama Hat Shop
It's a favorite of mine
because I can get a hat in the right size
the right size is where
hat attitude can come in!

My Persol works as well for rain
as it does sun protection
 is always such a beautiful accessory to pull out!

We went for brunch at the iconic 
where every detail is styled to perfection!
Sitting right up against the train tracks in San Juan Capistrano
it is one of my top brunch picks for South Orange County
this time not only for the ambiance
but definitely for the food as well!

We were lucky enough to wait for our table on the porch
with drinks.
The Ramos House bloody Mary
is almost urban legend by now
my pomegranate orange mimosa
was mixed perfectly!

Fresh citrus salad
with baratta and cinnamon.

Beef stew on
bleu cheese mash and root vegetables.

I was out still hoping for rain …
 by nightfall it finally poured
 was the perfect backdrop
for a cozy night in
watching the Oscars!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

    Is that a bangle you have around your umbrella to hold it together?
    I saw this post today and thought of you:

    writes about the Panama Hat Plant.

  7. Tamera there's nothing cooler than those cowboy boots. I used to have red ones that expressed a certain mood of mine. :)
    wish I could've had a Margarita there with you. (don't Margaritas go well with cowboy boots?) It looks like such a fun way to spend a drizzly weather day.

  8. Tamera this looks like another gem in San Juan. Love that area. Your outfit is beautiful and reminds me of Ralph Lauren, but with a Tamera twist! The hat is so perfect on you too. Thanks for all the kind notes lately. xo Kim
