Last week I was invited to a Friendsgiving soiree hosted by Melissa of Best Friends for Frosting. Melissa was the hostess with the mostess, creating a simple and elegant tablescape with beautiful dishes, lots of laughs, and goodies to take home from Kettle Brand.
I love wine tasting in Lodi. It’s not far from Sacramento, it’s casual and the region produces lots of great wine. What’s not to love? After learning that friends of mine took over the Lodi Vintners Tasting Room with a few others, I decided I had to go and see (and taste) what was up and enlisted my friend Meredith to accompany me. Boy, were we in for a treat!
This post is a few weeks too late, but it’s finally cooled off enough to wear I can wear sweaters and boots. As soon as I saw this crane sweater from the Altuzarra for Target collection, I knew I had to have it. And it was made in two of my favorite combinations of all time: black and gold.
Denim on denim is fun. When I wear bare legs and sandals around Sac these days, I’m totally chancing it. One day it’s fall, the next it feels like summer. But one thing that is a staple no matter the season is denim.
Me and my hair. Well, we’ve got a thing going on and have for a few years. My naturalista came to fruition one night in July of 2011 when I mustered the courage to cut off my chemically straightened hair in the bathroom and came out with a baby fro. Over the past few years, I’ve played with different shapes of my shorter coif and with that has come the trial and error of many products. Of course when the chance to try the new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil system came around, I gladly accepted. Read more
I’m mad about mustard.
I own a pair of mustard trouser pants, but these skinnies up the ante quite a bit. Mustard is such a rich hue for fall and I just love it with reds and greens and other jewel tones.
Neutrals should totally be part of your rotation this fall! The look is something you may not even have to shop for, and just need to spend some time pairing some of your favorite neutral color combinations.
When LUNA bar reached out to me about this year’s LUNAFEST and a woman game changer in my life, I thought it would be easy to write but it actually proved rather difficult. My mother Theresa is the woman game changer of my life no contest and I wasn’t sure I wanted to talk about her on the blog again. But then I thought if she were still alive, I would probably talk about her even more. She might’ve actually co-blogged with me, so then I put my hesitation to the side and started to write this post.
It’s not just me out there!
While Sacramento is no stranger to the blogging world, the landscape has changed a bit. Over the years, I’ve become friends with a group of other fashion blogger gals in town and it’s my pleasure to introduce you to some of them!
Hope you’re enjoying your Tuesday. It’s still pretty warm here in Sacramento, and there’s nothing better than sitting on a patio, enjoying a cool beverage, doing a little work and people watching, too. This time, I chose the Chocolate Fish Coffee patio. The East Sac one is in my neighborhood and is a great place to read, gather and enjoy some killer coffee and teas. There are two locations and both have super friendly staff. This location was closing as Christie and I took pictures on the patio, but they didn’t rush us out, which was very nice.
