This past fall and winter, I had the honor of being an ambassador for cabi clothing! I’ve done many posts about them in the past because the quality of clothing, the mission behind the brand and the entire cabi team are phenomenal.


When they emailed me back in November with an invitation to attend the cabi fashion week in San Diego, it was a resounding yes yes yes!


Even better would be that I would be traveling with one of my dear friends, Annie from Blessings and Sass  also a cabi ambassador and meeting a couple more influencers I have come to know through social media!

Stacie from The Makeup Obsessed Mom  and Suzy from Empty Nest Blessed were just as precious in person as they are on Instagram. Make sure you check out their fabulous blogs as well. Real, down to earth women are becoming a rarity in today’s influencing world. What a blessing to get to know these lovelies, their compassionate hearts and of course, sweet style!!  

Now, keep in mind California has been plummeted with bomb cyclones and crazy weather so I was a little worried, but the location was San Diego, at the very bottom of the state. I always have a feeling about weather when I travel and I just had a feeling we would get a couple of good days, and we did! It was

also, my first time to California!

Welcome Bags were brought to our rooms, including this. cabi always makes you feel very welcomed!

What a view from my Hotel Room.

Thursday night we had a fun happy hour with the cabi digital marketing team! Such great people and we finally got to meet Boss Babe, Sedonah in person, who we email with all the time.


cabi Fashion Week is a gathering of an assortment of cabi stylists and colleagues who descend upon a designated city twice a year for training, bonding, awards and best of all: THE FASHION SHOW! How lucky were we influencers to be invited as ambassador guests and VIP’s of cabi with front row seats to the event!

Friends, the cabi Spring 23’ Collection will blow you away. I will have more detailed info on this collection in the next couple weeks, but can I just say I was smiling ear to ear with everything I saw! The colors, fabrics, textures, and styles are so happy and fun!

After the show we went up to the Director of Marketing’s suite for a fabulous brunch and a hands on with all the new pieces. The brunch spread and mimosas were fabulous and so was the view! Of course, we were trying on, swooning, and trying to decide what we would be sporting this Spring!

That afternoon Annie and I went sightseeing in San Diego heading out to Coronado Island to see the famous Hotel Del. Many stars stay at this Hotel, it is rich in history and Movies like "Some Like it Hot" with Marilyn Monroe were filmed here.

Then we visited Old Town San Diego and Little Italy before having yummy tacos and margaritas at the number one taco joint in the Gaslamp district. Sorry barely any pics! 

After this yumminess for breakfast at the Gaslamp Breakfast co, we were off to the airport. This Potato Rosti was the waiters favorite, and it was Phenomenal! Potato Pancakes with salmon, poached eggs, herb cream cheese and arugula! 

Almost didn’t make our 2nd flight home. Held the gate for us and then we ordered shoes to go with our cabi cuteness, lol. The next morning, Annie and her hubs took me to meet Mr. Nine in the middle of Indiana. Whew, what a whirlwind but what a blessing to see the cabi Spring line AND San Diego. As I continue my ambassadorship with cabi, I can’t wait to share more with you VERY soon!
