A Pop of Plaid


Sorry for the late post this morning, I went out to dinner with my girlfriends last night.  Isn’t it crazy how sometimes Monday night is the only night where everyone is free?  We went to Delarosa, which is always a winner!  It is getting cold around here so the layers are coming out!  I am obsessed with these pants Pixie pants from J.Crew.  They are really thick leggings and when I saw this pair with the leather paneling I just had to have them!!  For some reason these pants don’t count for the sale but the regular Pixie ones do and are totally worth it because you will be wearing them all year long!

J.Crew is having 25% off MOST things in store if you spend over $150. Click here and use the code SHOPNOW.DSC_0038 DSC_0020 DSC_0032J.Crew pants and shirt (love this one)~~Madewell sweater~~Parris handbag~~Maiden Lane shoes via Gilt (similar here or here)~~Bauble Bar earrings


Plaid and Tweed


What a busy weekend, I am sad it is already over.  We had friends in town from Colorado this weekend.  On Friday we went to dinner and then out to celebrate our friends recent engagement.  Saturday we headed down to Carmel for a relaxing night of catching up with old friends.

It is starting to cool down around here so my scarfs are coming out.  Last Friday for work I wore this outfit and bundled up with this cozy scarf from my in-laws.  I think the little pom poms on the bottom are just so cute!!  I also really liked the way the tweed and plaid played off each other.

Happy Monday y’all!DSC_0080 DSC_0086 DSC_0105 DSC_0109Paige jeans~~Anthropologie blouse (also seen here)~~Banana Republic tweed blazer (similar here and here for $60)~~plaid scarf (similar here)~~Ava & Adien pumps via Gilt (similar here on sale)~~J.Crew belt (on sale!)~~Prada wallet~~Michael Kors watch~~Kate Spade earrings

Longing For…

We have almost made it to the weekend!! Here are a few items I am coveting at the moment… Wish List1. Studded Clutch, add some spice to your weekend outfit! 2. Silk Shirt, can never have too many of these for work. 3. Bracelet, the perfect mix of gold and silver. 4. Moto Jacket, enough said. 5. Necklace, this will go with everything this fall. 6. Pixie Leggings, the perfect pant with booties. 7. Black Dress, a classic with a twist. 8. Earrings, be matchy matchy with #5. 9. Plaid Pumps, I die. 10. Satchel, you basically don’t even need another bag.

Travel Diaries…Positano, Italy

PositanoPositano was so beautiful once we finally arrived!  Coming from the Cinque Terra it took us almost a full day of trains (big and small) to reach the Almalfi Coast.  But boy was it worth it!  We arrived at night so waking up the next day to this beautiful place was such a treat.   This town is small and primarily on a hill, so if you don’t like stairs I would not visit here.  After many days of site seeing and bouncing around towns we just hung out on the beach for the day, which was nice and relaxing!  The other full day we took a boat ride to Capri which was also beautiful.  We made some friends on the boat ride and actually just spent most of our day over indulging in Aperol spritzers and wine!  If you are looking for a mini-vacation within your sight seeing European vacation.. Positano is the perfect destination!J.Crew Factory dressWhile cruising around town I wore this light weight dress from J.Crew Factory (everything 30% off right now with the code SALE30) with my Sam Edelman sandals so I could make sure to be comfortable while hiking up all those stairs!  As you can see my Banana Republic cross body (on sale now!) and J.Crew necklace got a lot of use on my Italian trip!

J.Crew dress in ItalyWhen buying dresses at the end of the summer for vacation, I always think of how I could use them in fall.  I plan on throwing a sweater over this one and adding brown booties like these ones.

Sweater Weather

There is nothing like a new sweater when the weather starts to cool down.  I really love looking at Anthropologie for sweaters, they have such a variety and I they typically have a good price range.  For sweaters for work, I like J.Crew and they are currently having 25% off if you spend $150 with the code SHOPNOW.  So go ahead and stock up!Sweater Weather

Wine Country in the Fall

IMG_4273This past weekend my brothers were visiting from out of town so I took them up to wine country to one of my favorite spots, Michel-Schlumberger.  As a group we did the 5-course wine tasting and food pairing.  They chef prepares foods that pair perfectly with the wines they make on their property.  It truly is a fantastic experience.

IMG_4282 IMG_4275It is hard to choose a favorite course, they were all so delicious!

The weather is still beautiful out here in California, it was 80 degrees this past weekend!  I chose to wear this Tucker maxi dress.  I love the print on this dress because it looks fall-ish but kept me cool in the warm weather.  I paired it with my favorite DVF wedges!IMG_4293 IMG_4307Tucker dress (similar here)~~DVF wedges~~Banana Republic belt~~Parris handbag~~Kate Spade necklace
