Little Boy Bedroom

Well my son’s bedroom is finally complete. He just turned one a couple weeks ago and I am so in love with his room and so ecstatic that it is finished. Whether we had finished this up before he was born or a year into his life like we did, his room would have always had this end result. I knew early on that I didn’t want a “baby-ish” nursery for him. I wanted something that would be cute and fun but also that he could grow into as a little boy. One day, my mom and I were talking and starting discussing vintage National Park posters that one of us had seen. Thus, the theme for my son’s room was born.

The basic colors are taupe, navy and chocolate. I gained inspiration from one of my favorite Instagram stores, Barn Owl Primitives for that sign. They had one like it, but I knew I wanted an orange one so I just freehanded it myself.

The wood wall is Barn Shake Redwood that is super thin. We had already done crown and molding in this room and didn’t want the wood to stick out too far and make it look awkward. My husband combined a couple different stains to achieve this look.

These are my posters that started it all. My husband and I both love to travel so it was important to use to use vintage themed National Park posters of parks we had actually been to together. Also, my husband BUILT those frames. I knew what I wanted and he delivered! I love how rustic they look and how they match my son’s wood wall.

Did I mention how amazing the weather was the whole time I was in Napa? It was cloudy in the morning then gorgeous and sunny in the afternoons. Talk about perfect. It was so great to spend quality time with my family and get to relax. Living in California, I tend to forget how lucky we are that we have tons of vacation spots within hours of where I live. We have Napa Valley, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and so many more. It is always nice to take extended weekend trips to see the sights that we often forget about.

There is just something about Napa that truly inspires me. Maybe it is the fact that this whole place has come to life because of grapes. That’s pretty inspiring right? I think so! I have been blessed to travel all over the country and see some pretty incredible places but truth be told, Napa will always be one of my favorites. There is an element of class here and that is what I love them most. I’ll take Napa over Vegas any day!

Now about the outfit. I found these navy blue shorts at the J.Crew Factory Store in the bay area a couple of weeks ago. I am OBSESSED with them. Their pattern is so distracting yet subtle. They are navy blue and white so they go with everything. I decided to wear this outfit into town the other day and it was perfect for walking the streets and shopping. It was so peaceful and beautiful.

Hope you all have a great weekend. God bless!

 Alright time to get nostalgic, Napa Valley will always hold a special place in my heart for many reasons. This is actually where I was vacationing when I first thought about starting this blog. I was walking through some vineyards with my mom and she said I just had to post this somewhere because my outfit was adorable with the vineyards. Fast forward a year or two and here we go. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Another reason this is one of my favorite places is because, like I mentioned in another post, I work in the wine industry. There is just something about Napa Valley that intrigues me, so I guess I picked a great line of work.

Now about this outfit, first off, can we just take in the breathtaking view in the first photo? That was taken from the resort I was staying at. Can you say gorgeous? This past week was all about wine tasting attire and this outfit was no different. The weather was perfect during the day but a little chilly in the morning and at night. I was excited that it wasn’t too hot to wear jeans. Where I live, has been way too hot for jeans lately, so I couldn’t wait to pull these out.

I found this top at Kohls a few months ago and love how it can take a pair of jeans and class them up a bit. I wear it to work all the time with black pants and love how professional it looks. I bought these jeans at my favorite store in my hometown, Helen & Louise and found these shoes at Macy’s. So happy I was able to take a few days off and truly unplug. It was great to spend time with family and take it all in.

Have a great day. God bless!
