We Recommend: Going West For Summer

Ready for a summer getaway? This post is (made especially) for you! We often find ourselves discussing destinations, where to say and what to shop during weekend trips and staycations. So we gathered a few Fossil insiders and asked them to give us a little summary about the places they recently visited, including happy hour spots and best-kept secrets—the things that really matter, if you ask us.

Which city did you visit?

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

 

What’s the most curious thing about this town?

One of my favorite things about Cabo is...[that] the landscape is so beautiful; you get everything from desert mountains to a beautiful blue sea.

 

What Fossil pieces did you bring with you?

I brought the Jules Crossbody with the fringe tassel; it's the perfect throw-on-and-go crossbody for any trip into town! I couldn't decide between sporty and classic, so I brought both the Vintage Muse watch (in the brightest blue) and the Modern Pursuit. The Modern Pursuit was the perfect travel watch and Vintage Muse matched the blue [of the] ocean. My favorite piece (which screamed Mexican fiesta) was the Fringe Bracelet. The colorful fringe tassels added color to all of my outfits.

 

Where to stay:

I stayed at an all-inclusive resort and LOVED it! The staff is always friendly, and the included food and drinks are hard to beat! A sushi bar that overlooks the beach? Sold!

 

What to eat:

The Office, it's located right on the beach. It has bright and festive decor, delicious pineapple drinks and guac that can't be beat.

 

Best happy hour spot:

The beach! My friends and I loved grabbing drinks at our resort then lounging on the beach to take in the sunset.

 

Don’t leave Cabo without…

Taking a Catamaran snorkeling cruise! They're the best way to take in the beautiful blue ocean and landscapes.

If you were a kid in the ‘80s, you’ve probably heard of  Walla Walla because it was a stop on the Oregon Trail video game.

My Estate Backpack and the Q Founder smartwatch. The Estate is perfect for packing my laptop and reading material on the plane and the Q Founder keeps me up to date on my flight info.

Marcus Whitman Hotel

 

What to eat:

John’s Wheatland Bakery: they have the best chocolate éclair ever!

Marcy’s Bar and Lounge

 

Don’t leave Walla Walla without….

Going wine tasting. There are so many wineries to choose from, and if you go to the ones outside of town, you’ll be catch amazing views of the Blue Mountains and rolling wheat fields.

What’s the most curious thing about this town?

The weather goes from 80º to 50º in one day. I love the unique local shops around Hayes Valley and the Mission.

 

What Fossil pieces did you bring with you?

I brought the classic Harper bag in brown because it goes perfectly with everything I own. I hung my (adorable) bird coin bag charm to it. I also brought the Abilene watch in indigo. It looks great with jeans and adds a pop of color to any look without being too loud.

 

Where to stay:

Book with Airbnb for an authentic take on the city. Fave Neighborhoods: North Beach, Nob Hill, Hayes Valley.

 

What to eat:

Pizza at Delfina in the Mission

 

Best happy hour spot:

Gaspar Brasserie for an afternoon break close to Union Square.

 

Don’t leave SF without….

Going to The Haight and looking through the vintage shops. Wasteland in particular is one of my favorites! Also, the farmer's market at the ferry building is one of the best lunch spots, no matter if you're buying produce or not.
