Wine Country in my new red dress

thumb image

Living 20 minutes away from Napa never gets old. It is one of my favorite day trips. Exploring vineyards, trying new eateries and taking in the fabulous views is a great way to spend a Saturday. There is something peaceful about sharing a bottle of wine between friends, having good conversation and being surrounded by endless rows of vines. This past weekend we did exactly that. We stopped at Twomey Cellars for a quick taste then headed to V. Sattui for a picnic.

“Get lost in the right direction”

I’ve finally decided to add some bright pieces to my closet. This catch all red tote and these yellow pumps are two of my latest purchases. I’ve been favoring this tote during the weekends while running errands since it is so big it pretty much carries anything I need. Because the bay area charges for shopping bags now it has come in handy to throw all my purchases in this tote saving me a pretty penny or two. Whether I’m going to the gym or the farmers market this is my go to weekend bag. (more…)

Black and White is always in Style

I have been eyeing this skirt now for a while which has been replicated by many designers. Finally, I caved.  The fitted waist and flared cut of the skirt make it super flattering for all shapes. The contrast of the black and white is bold but still classic. I’ve paired it with a simple black long sleeve tee and a pair of my favorite go to Michael Kors Sandals to make it a perfect outfit for date night with R in the city. (more…)

Earring Jackets

Here is a trend that I am definitely excited to hope on board with. The new and improved earring isn’t just about the front design, rather its all about the jacket (the back end of your earring). This new trend allows you to mix and match earrings giving you twice the amount of options you would normally have and who doesn’t like more options. ( Image three doesn’t have jackets but it was too pretty not to include!) (more…)

White on white for Spring/Summer

When thinking of spring/summer fashion, it usually stirs up images of bright colors such as greens, yellows, blues and various hues of pinks. I mean, after a winter season when our wardrobes are full of sleek black and dusty grays, it only makes sense. For me, spring reminds me of how fresh linens are supposed to smell when just washed and dried by the sun. I think of crisp whites or pretty pastels that are lighter than your average.

Every season I find myself needing a bit of inspiration and like most women, I browse through pinterest to see what our fellow fashionista are loving. Here are some I pins I found myself coveting their style.  (more…)

The Fifth Label

Ok I’ll admit, I get overly excited when I discover a new brand I love. I will spend hours online adding all the pieces I’m obsessed with to my cart and then “X”ing out of the page when I see the total. The Fifth Label is an Australian brand created only about a year ago by Amy Hicks. (more…)

My Wedding Dress

My dream wedding dress was created by Paolo Sebastian, an Australian designer. The dress was light and airy and absolutely perfect for our destination wedding. Unfortunately it also came with a hefty price tag. I knew after seeing this dress that no other would compare. When showing my trusted group of ladies a photo of the dress, they agreed, the dress screamed my name. I then decided that my mother and I were going to try to replicate the dress. Okay, let’s be honest, I begged my mom to recreate the dress herself. I am not nearly as talented with a needle and thread. Though she still says “I did what I could”, I could not have imagined a more perfect dress for my wedding day. It’s what every girl dreams of, feeling like an absolute princess. But it was extra special to me because it wasn’t a dress I bought off the rack, rather a dress my talented mother created for my special day. Thank you, Mom. (more…)
