It kind of blows my mind that this blog is 3 years old today and what really blows my mind is how many people read, follow, comment and support it. When I started with my little point and shoot camera, taking pictures of myself in the mirror, I never would have assumed so many people would actually care about what I have to say or what I wear day to day. But I am so glad you guys do care and I really appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
This weekend, I am headed to LA for Lucky FABB, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate 3 years! Make sure you follow me on TWITTER. I will try my best to live tweet while simultaneously paying close attention to all the speakers ;)

I was so against these heels because every blogger has them, but they were too comfortable and inexpensive to pass up. So, not only did I initially buy them in black, when I saw the red/purple combo I had to have them  too :)

casual fridays

Yes, I'm aware that it's Wednesday, but this is what I threw on a few Fridays ago to shop and lunch in San Fran. I enjoy getting dolled up like the next lady, but the California girl in me also really appreciates a laid back casual look. 

On another note, I DO wish it was Friday already because the weather is supposed to be gorgeous this weekend and I plan to be out and about and enjoying every minute of it, because I am officially DONE WITH SCHOOL :):)

wearing: french connection dress (SIMILAR), h&m trench, steve madden shoes, f21 necklace (SIMILAR)

easter skirt

I wore this last Sunday to church for Easter and I absolutely adore this skirt. It's a great basic, but the pockets and the buttons make it just little bit more interesting. I could have worn it with almost anything on top, but I decided to go bright :) Speaking of bright, have you checked out OLD NAVY lately? I'm really loving all their great button downs in fun prints and colors. The one I'm wearing is on sale now for 14 bucks, so I think I'm going to pick it up in THIS pretty blue. It would have gone well with my nails :) 

wearing: old navy blouse (PURCHASE), f21 skirt (SIMILAR,SIMILAR), nine west pumps (PURCHASE), michael kors watch (PURCHASE), nordstrom necklace, opi polish in thanks a windmillion
worn to: church and brunch

As I told you in my previous post, and as you can see from my last two, I literally wore stripes all weekend in Napa. It totally wasn't planned that way, but I guess I'm more of stripes lover than I thought. I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter. My day consisted of church, really good food, and lots and lots of work. Grad school is the worst :-/

wearing: old navy oversized button down, f21 jeggings and necklace (SIMILAR), michael kors watch (PURCHASE), CARLOS SANTANA HEELS
worn to: clos du val winery

On another note, I'm beyond excited to be attending the Lucky FABB conference this month in Santa Monica!!! If you're going to be there PLEASE let me know :) CAN.NOT.WAIT.

just relax

One of the best things about this trip to Napa was that it was all about good old R&R. It wasn't jam packed with stuff to do...just eat good food, drink good wine, get massaged, do some yoga and CHILL. The laid back theme for the weekend made it incredibly easy to pack. I kept it simple and chic and wore stripes all weekend, and on this day, I even managed to match the wine barrels :) Ha!

wearing: gap cardigan, ny & co denim shirt (SIMILAR), f21 jeggings, SAM EDELMAN LOAFERS (SIMILAR), nordstrom necklace (SIMILAR)
worn to: HESS WINERY

If you're ever in Napa stop by HESS WINERY. They offer free tours of their gorgeous premises, they have a VERY cool art gallery, and of course great wine.

rainy napa & the boon fly cafe

I had a nice little weekend getaway to Napa a few weeks ago and I think my tweet "Having champagne 4 breakfast. Not a champagne breakfast...literally just champagne for breakfast :)"  pretty much sums up the trip. On this particular day it rained from sunup to sundown but it made the trip that much more relaxing and brunch at the BOON FLY CAFE that much more charming. It's such a cute little restaurant, with cute little condiments and cute little donuts. I'd go back to Napa just for the donuts ;)
