‘Tis the season for road trips. And while Santa Barbara and Palm Springs both have their charms, for an absolute bohemian immersion experience, Ojai is the place to be.
Creative locals Channon and Bianca Roe have just this year opened an Ojai shop filled with luxe essentials they themselves rely on, and, from the look of the shop, we love these people. Sticking true to their local roots and keeping things beyond well-styled, In The Field is a Chalkboard wonderland. Below, Bianca shares a few highlight from the shop’s shelves and life tending to one of the town’s sweetest new spots…

We’re always drinking…
Ventura Spirits, keep it local and spread the word. The California vodka that’s made out of strawberries, not flavored of strawberries. Made out of strawberries (not potatoes). Strawberry fields forever!!!
Dasien Spring, Ojai visitor’s walking map, raw almonds, sparkling water, half eaten children’s burrito from The Farmer & The Cook.
Nova Radio Paris, Stones, Dylan, Gillian Welch, but on Sundays, it’s always Breakfast With The Beatles.
Candle always burning:
Incense is the new black; we burn copal in the store. Bodha is our recent exciting discovery, producing incredible incense. We’re burning ‘Ground’ right now at home.
