We are officially in the single digits in this pregnancy countdown!  How time flies.  We had a cold front most of last week so I pulled out this cape to wear during a stroll in downtown San Francisco.  It was the perfect ‘coat’ keeping me warm the whole day and sure felt like I had a blanket on.  Capes have been a trend this fall and winter and I love how it’s a stylish alternative to a long winter coat.  As I grow bigger in the belly area, there are few things left that I feel comfortable in…this cape is a keeper!

After a long journey home (including one cancelled flight), we are back from Kauai!  Instead of a set schedule and itinerary, we decided to plan our trip day by day.  In the end, it was a very relaxing trip which was just what this mama-to-be ordered.  Almost every day you could find me lounging by the pool, snacking, taking a dip, rinse and repeat.  There were a lot of couples who had a similar idea and we made a few friends along the way!

Hope you’re having a great week so far!

I hope all of you are having a great week so far.  It’s ramping up to be a busy one for me – such is the holiday time crunch!  These photos were taken during our last days in LA in one of my favorite spots, Santa Monica.  There’s no trip to LA without a stop into one of my favorite cafes, Demitasse, and a walk down 3rd Street Promenade.  We usually end our day with a cocktail at the Huntley Hotel, but that will have to wait until next time.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by the blog!

Chambray Shirtdress

Some weekends just call for a simple and casual outfit.  The shirtdress is the perfect answer.  It takes you from running errands to lunch to a coffee date.  I love this chambray version because it is a great color for spring and easy to style.  My new Converse kicks gives the whole look that ‘California casual’ vibe.  You’ll definitely be seeing this dress often on the blog!  I can’t wait to pair it with some wedge heels for a bit of glamour.

Happy Monday!  xoxo

Fall Layers (at Half Moon Bay)

Remember how I wrote about my fall to-do list in this post?  Well, this past weekend I visited Bob’s Vegetable and Pumpkin Farm out in Half Moon Bay.  Pumpkin patch visit?  Check!  We picked a crisp, fall day and while a bit cool, the day turned out beautiful and golden with plenty of sun.  Half Moon Bay is a fun area to visit if you’re ever in the Bay Area.  From surfing to eating fresh seafood (try the clam chowder at Sam’s Chowder House) to biking and strolling along the beach, the area is a perfect weekend destination for locals and visitors alike.  We decided to spend an entire day in Half Moon Bay and also grabbed some coffee and dessert at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay hotel.

Hope you had a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Denim on Denim

Pairing denim with denim is just the perfect staple.  An almost neutral palette, it allows you to add color in many ways–in this case, a pair of orange patent pumps and some pink lips and accessories.  I would love to wear this again with a bright blazer and beige or black heels.  Also, this is one of the few times I put my hair up…had to, it was very warm outside!

What is your staple look?
