Fall Wedding





Happy Tuesday!  Sorry, it has been quiet over here at Morning Espresso.  I’ve been juggling a bunch of activities this past week and a half, mostly a busy work schedule and also travels to the east coast on the weekends.  Fall is in the air!  Above I’m attending the wedding rehearsal of one of my good friends from graduate school.  I was in New Jersey and the air turned crisp in the evenings.  I decided to wear a bold fall color — mustard yellow — for the occasion.  As you can see, I’m still in love with my Proenza Schouler clutch and have been carrying it around with me everywhere.  I have to say that while it has been a whirlwind September with all my travels, I am happy to be home for the next several weeks!

Hope you are having a great week!

Took advantage of the warm weather we’ve been having and a long weekend to head out for a dinner and movie in San Francisco.  It was a triple date sort of night where we met some friends in the city to watch Her and then grabbed dinner close by.  Have you seen the movie?  It’s basically a love story set in futuristic Los Angeles and was quite good!  All of us had a great movie analysis discussion during dinner.

I’m hoping to get some reading and rest today (day off!) in preparation for a short, but busy 4-day week coming up!  Have a wonderful Monday!

Santa Cruz Wine Tasting




Happy December!  (Crazy, right?)

I took a much needed break from work and the blog this past long weekend.  It felt refreshing to disconnect from email and the laptop and spend some quality time with family and friends.  There definitely was a lot of eating going on this weekend.  How was your Thanksgiving?  I hope it was full of good food, love and laughter.

On Saturday, one of hubby’s friends joined us on a wine tasting trip down to Santa Cruz.  We visited three wineries and our first stop was David Bruce Winery (seen in these photos as the backdrop).  The other wineries we visited were Loma Prieta and Cinnabar Winery.  We had an amazing time drinking wine and learning about pairing wine and food.  As expected, I bought several bottles to take home!

I hope you have a great Monday and a wonderful week!  Thanks for visiting.  xoxo

Sky-high Heels


So excited that some new heels came in this week!  It’s been crazy how many sales events happened in the last week.  I mean, Black Friday discounts are already underway and we still have over a week until Thanksgiving!  Well, in times like these, this fashionista gets busy shopping.  I jumped on the Piperlime sale where already discounted shoes received another 15% off.  Finally have coveted leopard pumps in the closet (yay)!  Check back to see how I style these new beauties.  For now, any of these heels would go well with this trench coat, no?
