Good morning from Monterey! Patrick surprised me with a night stay in Monterey for my Birthday! He spoils me, I don’t know how I got so lucky!! We have been wanting to come back here so bad since we watched Bid Little Lies (if you haven’t watched this show you NEED TO). Yesterday we pulled off the road to walk along the beach because the waves were huge! There was also huge swarm of birds about 100 yards out in the ocean which seemed odd, and then a FREAKING WHALE was right there! This happened right as we walked up to the water! The birds went where the whale went, so we would watch where they went and see the whale come up for air every few minutes. It was crazy!!!

Last night we had my birthday dinner at Cultura Comida y Bebida in Carmel. It is a mexican restaurant and was seriously out of this world. They have fresh handmade tortillas and give you tiny little hot chocolates after dinner. It was perfect.

Today we are doing a hike near Big Sur. I couldn’t picture a more perfect Birthday weekend. I feel so incredibly blessed!!

Anyways – the reason you are probably here is because of this dress!! I got so many questions about it when I posted it on my Instagram a couple weeks ago. I am so excited that it is finally in stock!! And how perfectly does it pair with my Ego flats?!

Dress: Modern Vintage Boutique | Shoes: EGO | Hat: Lack of Color

I also wanted to say thank you for all the sweet and thoughtful birthday wishes. They heave meant the world to me! Enjoy your Sunday!
