Like I mentioned in my last post, getting caught up from vacation has been less than easy. I never realize how many projects I am involved in, until I take off work and don’t do any of them. I am happy to be back and already gearing up for another trip coming very soon. While on the East coast, we made it a point to visit as many states as we could. When you’re from California you have to maximize your time. That being said, throughout the vacation we visited 6 states! Can you believe that?? I’ve always wanted to visit Rhode Island and finally I was able to. While we were there we went to Newport to visit the Breakers.

If you aren’t sure what the Breakers are, they are a group of mansions that sit directly on the Atlantic Ocean. They are huge, gorgeous and truly impressive. What I didn’t know is that a college sits right in the neighborhood and used a lot of these mansions as meeting halls. It was truly remarkable to see the Vanderbilt mansion among so many others. Also, it was FREEZING. So if I look incredibly cold, I was. I decided to take the casual approach since I was on vacation and all. I paired my favorite skinny jeans with some knee high boots and a very warm coat. I added an orange scarf and was really glad I did. When we started walking around the mansions I was completely numb. Thank goodness for scarves. So glad I was able to see so many beautiful places.

I hope you all have a great day! God bless!Cursive Signature

Who is ready for Fall? This girl sure is. I feel like this summer has been here way too long and i’m ready for way cooler weather. It has been a rough one this summer that’s for sure. There has been so much going on in my personal and professional life that I feel like I haven’t really had time to stop and take a breather. Thankfully I see light at the end of the tunnel and will hopefully be back to a routine shortly.

When chaos strikes sadly, my blog is what takes the hardest hit. I greatly appreciate you all that you continue to read it and still follow my crazy journey called life. For today’s outfit my love for blue really shows through. I did not own any blue dresses at the beginning of the summer and now own three. This blue Cynthia Rowley dress has been a staple this summer. This color is so beautiful and stands out but not too much. I added my favorite black wedges and borrowed my moms Michael Kors bag to add a little extra to this look. What really finishes it off is this gorgeous statement necklace from BaubleBar. If you haven’t heard of BaubleBar before I highly recommend you check it out. They are my one stop shop for all things jewelry. I am obsessed will all their designs and they really some beautiful and unique pieces. If you order anything be sure to use my unique code (21433874) when signing up or use the link here.

Hope you all are enjoying the last days of summer vacation. God bless!

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!
