Chambray Shirts

My newest obsession is a great chambray shirt. I love how easy it is to throw on a denim button down and look put together within minutes. I know it can seem daunting to try and pair denim with denim, so for those of you who feel like you can't wear this trend, try wearing your chambray shirt with a pair of white skinnies. You will love how classic the look is, and not only will you look chic but you will be comfortable too!

I want that! Spring Flats

Spring is finally here and even though it was overcast and rainy all day yesterday, the new season has me thinking about what pieces I want to add to my closet in the next few months. One style that I can't seem to get enough of is Spring Flats. I am especially loving the cap toe and loafer styles that are so trendy right now. Below are some of my favorites that I have seen. What are some of your Spring must haves?

A Day in the Wine Country

This past weekend, my family and I drove up to the wine country for the famous barrel tasting weekend. Wineries all over the valley invite members to come taste their latest wines straight from the barrel. It is basically an excuse to socialize, eat great food, buy lots of wine and drink. Instead of going to the always crowded Napa Valley, we went to the less explored Dry Creek Valley to one of my favorite wineries, Dry Creek. Below are pictures from the area and the cutest general store I have every seen. This weekend we are headed to Lake Tahoe for a wedding so expect more travel pictures next week!

Pinterest Picks

My latest pins on Pinterest have had a very nautical vibe to them. I love the clean look of navy and white, especially when paired with gold jewelry and a brown leather tote. I always feel dressed up when wearing anything nautical inspired, like I should be stepping foot on a beautiful yacht instead of running to the grocery store. Below are some of my favorite nautical picks. To see even more follow me on Pinterest!

Girly Gold Stationary

I have been writing my last few wedding Thank You notes and it got me thinking about how fun stationary can be. We had cards made up with the logo we created for our wedding stationary, but after looking at it for so long I am ready to buy some other cards to have around. You never know when you will need to send a Thank You or just write someone a note to let them know you are thinking about them. I am loving the gold foil look right now, and check out the adorable pencils I found on Etsy, perfect for writing all of your new notes with.

Spring Jackets

Spring is almost upon us with warm sun and cool breezy days. I love seeing the turn of the seasons and transitioning my wardrobe with it. I find the best way to dress for spring is with layers, and what better way to layer then to top off your outfit with a fun lightweight jacket. I have been looking for a new coat myself and below are some of my favorites.

Sunglasses With a Cause

A few weekends ago I was in Los Angeles walking around Venice Beach when I spotted the coolest looking shop, a school bus full of great looking glasses. Warby Parker is the newest trend in the optical and sunglasses world, and like TOMS, for every pair sold a pair of glasses is donated to someone in need around the world. Oh and did I mention every pair is only $95! The Warby Parker school bus is traveling around the country to major cities like Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, and New York. If you missed the bus (literally) you can visit one of their showrooms in most major cities, or check them out online here.
