Good morning, guys! I am so excited because in a few hours I will be in total vacation mode when my girlfriends arrive in San Francisco for a little Napa Getaway. I love playing host to friends that have never been to Napa. I feel like I am going to forever change their life by introducing them to it. Haha! I am taking them to a few of my favorite wineries, including Domaine Carneros, Regusci and Flora Springs and made reservations for dinner at PRESS in St. Helena. I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to wear this dress from VICI this weekend when I saw the weather forecast for rain, but I just rechecked it and now it shows some sun! So into the luggage it goes! It’s Thirsty Thursday and this girl needs some wine. Have a great weekend!!
Some midweek blush for a bright and sunny day in SF! I’m running around doing errands all day getting ready to host my friends that are coming into town for a girls trip to Napa tomorrow. I’ve posted about this look before and got so many questions about specific outfit details so i’ve linked them down below! This is a perfect look for Spring getaways and will definitely be packed this weekend for Napa. Sorry for the short and sweet post, i’m off for a quick workout before the day starts! xx
I’m headed up to wine country this afternoon to shoot a few blog looks, as well as work with and see my girlfriend Andrea Lowry Photography who recently announced her third pregnancy (so excited!!)!! Honestly, i’ll use just about any excuse to head across the bridge and wine country is so beautiful this time of year. I have a thing for bodysuits and it is so hard to find a white one that isn’t see-through or too tight. I LOVE this lace up one from Modern Vintage Boutique. It is the perfect weight and light enough to be worn even on sunnier days. I have also fully adhered to the tassel earring trend. They seriously make an outfit and I always get so many compliments on them while i’m out! The ones I’m wearing in this post are from Bauble Bar and come in so many different style and color variations!
I don’t think I will ever get over how magical my trip to NYC was. I grew up going to NYC every year, but that ended when I went off to college and I hadn’t been back since. The city holds a certain nostalgia, and on this trip my nostalgia collided with the passion of my current world. The hustle gave a certain high that I cannot even begin to put into words. I kept thinking to myself: the little girl that used to look at this city with wide eyes wouldn’t believe this would be her life one day. I don’t think I slept more than a couple hours the entire trip. I didn’t need it. The city was my breath and and the people I met were my lungs. There is a quote that I repeat in my head often and it is this:
“I fall in love with people’s passion. The way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love and the way they fill with light.”
Every person I met, ran into and worked with on this trip displayed this quote most perfectly. The fire they had was contagious. Maybe that it just what New York does to you. It allows you to be unapologetically yourself and urges you to follow your dreams.
Happy Sunday, beautiful people! It is days like today that make me pinch myself that I get to live in San Francisco. The sun has been shining all weekend long, and has actually been hot enough to head to the beach! Now that I have been here for over a year, I have discovered so many secret local spots that you wouldn’t know how to find unless someone told you how. For example, The Black Sands Beach in the Marin Headlands is an almost untouched beach that few people know how to get to. Lucky for you, I am totally willing to spill the location deets to my readers. It is located right between Kirby Cove Camp and the Bonita Point Lighthouse. There is a tiny parking lot on the lefthand side with a little stairway that will lead you all the way down to the beach. I swear you will be instantly transported to a remote island oasis. 3 out of 4 times we have gone, we have been the only ones on the beach and it is equally as magical on a foggy day as it is on a sunny day. I recently got this dress from Modern Vintage Boutique because I thought it would be the perfect vacation dress! It can be worn as a swimsuit coverup, but can also be dressed up for dinner at the resort. I always look for pieces that can serve multiple purposes when traveling!
