I spent last weekend in Vegas and if you've been to Vegas once you've been a million times. No matter how many new restaurants, hotels, clubs etc pop up, Vegas is still the same at it's core. I had planned on trying to do Vegas the un-Vegas way i.e. no gambling, no partying but it rained the whole time I was there (hence the blog photos in the hotel hallway) and made navigation a bit tricky, but it was nice to getaway nonetheless.
Random question of the day...what do you wear when you run errands? Are you the girl in leggings and sneakers, heels and skinny jeans or somewhere in between?
You will rarely find me in sneakers and you definitely won't find me running around Target in stilettos, so I guess I am somewhat in between. I like to be comfortable but I always like to be presentable.
As I mentioned on INSTAGRAM I got a chance to see an early screening of the Best Man Holiday last week, and it far, far exceeded my expectations. I hope everyone went out and supported it this weekend, but I will reluctantly bite my tongue and not say anything more and ruin it for those who haven't. Man o man...we will leave it at that.
This J. Crew bejeweled color block sweater was love at first sight as were these Jean Michel Cazabat pumps. Thanks to a 30TH BIRTHDAY back in August, I was able to cross both of them off my wish list. And as much as I wear both of them, I can't believe they are just making their blog debut.
Happy Monday! Bonus pic of the beautiful California sky.
My not so secret love affair with Anthropologie has been going on for over 10 years. We took a few breaks because of money issues (grad school) and distance (no stores close to my house) and we had a little disagreement earlier this summer because of THIS DRESS (completely sold out in my size). But now we are back at it and stronger than ever.
On my final night in Greece I wore this OLD NAVY MAXI DRESSthat I scored for the low-low..$4 to be exact. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have even gotten it that cheap as a hand me down in Goodwill, so basically I got the deal of the decade week.
I think the ethnic inspired print paired nicely with my twists and extra sun kissed skin. Everyone thought I was from the Caribbean or Africa while I was there anyway, so WHY NOT play it up and not crush anyone's dream when I tell them "nope I'm from California" Ha!
I hope you enjoyed all of my outfits and photos from Greece as much as I enjoyed reliving the trip with you! I have some pretty gorgeous shots on my INSTAGRAM that I might share on the blog also, but in the meantime make sure you follow me HERE.
And, at last I leave you with one final, but extra important tip and some more amazing photos!

No need to get the international data plan or whatever it's called for your phone. If staying connected is important to you book a hotel with Wifi and most restaurants, whether they advertise it or not, have Wifi. You just have to ask for the password. To be on the safe side, put your phone in airplane mode as soon as you land so you won't get hit with any random charges, and you're all set.
