Jewelry has the power to completely transform a look. Whether you are going out for a chic date night, wearing a swimsuit on a tropical getaway or getting cozy at a snowy cabin, your jewelry can make a statement all on it’s own. I discovered Raven & Riley last year, and since then have added several of her statement pieces into to my jewelry collection. The pieces are all so beautiful and unique. Each piece compliments my outfit and where I am wearing the outfit. I get SO many questions about these items, so I have conveniently listed my entire collection below!
When Bliss Tulle announced that they would be making tops, I knew it was going to be a total game changer. One of my most frequently asked questions prior to this was where to get pretty tops to pair with a tulle skirt, so this makes everything SO much easier! Each delicate little top is made to pair perfectly with any one of the skirts, making the combinations endless. We are officially in the holidays (what? when? how?) and Bliss Tulle is such a beautifully feminine look for Holiday cards and engagement photos this time of year!!
A couple of weeks ago I got to personally experience one of the most beautiful locations I have every seen in my life. At Sorensen’s Resort in Hope Valley, a blanket of yellow Aspen leaves covered the forest floor and stripped Aspen tree’s went for miles and miles. I imagine if I got there a few days earlier the scene would have been flipped and it would have been an Autumn wonderland when looking up at the sky. I know it is a year away, but I would set a reminder to make a trip up to Sorensen’s Resort in October of next year. I promise you it will be worth it!! With vibrant yellow hues and a statement jacket, this look was made for cool Autumn days in charming places.
There is nothing I love more than when the temperatures start to drop and we start opting for cozy nights in around the holidays. It is so easy to make a regular movie night at home feel extra special by creating the right ambiance and pouring a glass or two of your favorite wine. We always have a stock of our favorite Chloe Wines for date night, and we have been especially loving their newest varietal, Chloe Merlot, this time of year. The grapes are grown exclusively from the San Lucas Estate Vineyard in Monterey County California, one of our favorite vacation spots, which makes the wine extra special to us. It is a more full-bodied Merlot filled with abundant and well-balanced flavors of fresh picked blackberries, black cherry and ripe plum with notes of vanilla, mocha and spice. Just add some dark chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn, and I swear you’ll be cherishing the sweet memories you are able to create at home with friends or loved ones.
Last week I had the opportunity to not only work with one of my favorite designers, Rachel Allan, but also work with one of my all-time favorite photographers, Liz Franco, in one of my favorite places. It was a sunny day in San Francisco during our unusual heat wave and we had the most incredible golden lighting over the Pacific Ocean. The delicate, airy sleeves, low back and beaded details make this one of the most incredible gowns i’ve ever worn. I love this gown as an alternative wedding dress, prom dress or for engagement photos. The incredible floral arrangement is by the cute little flower shop on my street, Le Bouquet. This day and this gown was an absolute dream.
