Monterey & Carmel

Folktale Winery

After staring at sea otters at the Monterey Aquarium, my mom and I drove out to Carmel to visit Folktale Winery and Vineyards. This was after we ate the most delicious breakfast earlier in Carmel at From Scratch. So much good food on this day of the road trip!

Day Drinking

There’s really nothing more delightful than a quiet afternoon of day drinking in the sun. I’m not a fan of loud noises, dark bars and usually drinking anything alcoholic, but this place was so beautiful. It resembled a french chateau with views of the mountains–and the sparkling rose and truffle oil fries were so tasty. I can enjoy a drink every so often when I can sit in the sun like a cat and unwind. Read More »

City Vibes

I’ve been on a Sex and the City kick lately. I’ve watched most of the censored episodes out of order in syndication as a teen, but I recently started binge watching them starting with season one and everything in my life I now immediately relate to the show. Like this outfit. I feel so Carrie. Read More »

Hats Everyday

With the heat and my laziness, hats have become even more a necessity for my everyday style. This one is a favorite from last summer and remains in #1 hat rank. I snagged it from Retail Therapy last summer (and she has more in!) but found it finally online, it’s called the spencer fedora.

I packed it for this weekend’s trip to Pittsburgh, as I anticipate some shitty hair due to this humidity along with sleeveless tunics and lots of denim cut offs.

Gladiator Sandal Styling

DSC_6704

Styling a Tricky Sandal

The gladiator sandal may be tricky to style, but there’s a perfect version for everyone. For me, I prefer a shorter gladiator that’s still bold in black leather, but wearable for everyday. I love this particular style by Harley Davidson Footwear because it’s the perfect mix of edgy and effortless. I balanced out the shoe with a black bohemian tunic, cut off shorts and a grey hat.
