What do you do when you have a $500 airline credit to burn? Well you book three weekend trips of course. This weekend I'm heading to Miami but a couple of weekends ago we spent an amazing 48 hours in Sonoma. We visited a total of 7 wineries over the weekend. (I was suffering come Monday). The first day we did a wine trolley which I would definitely recommend. We had the opportunity to visit four wineries. All were beautiful. I of course have my faves. The weather was perfect and we had such a great time that we feel asleep as soon as we got back to our cottage and missed our dinner reservation. Oops.
Why do I look so angry? Because it's hot and I don't like when it is hot. Haha. At least I don't like having to dress up for work when it is 9 million degrees. When it is hot I like to go to the beach or the pool or maybe just curl up in my pjs with the AC on blast. So let's talk about the fact that I am pretty sure I bought this dress almost 15 years ago. I paid about 10 bucks for it and it is still going strong. I LOOOVEE this dress. It is great for a hot summer day, throw on a blazer and you are work ready.

To say I am obsessed with rompers, onsies and jumpsuits is an understatement. The minute the weather cooperates it is my item of choice. Just like dresses they are soo easy. You just throw it on with some accessories and keep it moving. I especially love wearing rompers when I go on vacation and am lounging by the pool. What is your favorite go to outfit when the weather starts to warm up.

While we continue to try to make it through this bitter winter I cannot help but be in a bit of a fashion rut. Also posing for outfit pics in my living room are not really that inspiring which is why I have been slacking on the outfit posts. I am also dreaming about my next trip which as of right now will be in April to Cancun. I am not one to complain about the cold since I love the winter but this ice is making it difficult for me to wear what I want. That being said I have been noticing a lot of walking friendly styles everywhere and thought I would take a look at this slip on sneaker trend. I am not sure I am ready to give up my heels (even if it means slipping and sliding on ice) but I may or may not give this trend a try. Here are some options all under $50. What do you think about the Slip On Sneaker trend?
Most of the Northeast is current snowed in or in the process of about to be snowed in and although we should all have our winter gear by now it doesn't hurt to do a little bit of online window shopping for a new pair of snow boots. I actually do not have a dedicated pair of snow boots since I usually just wear my rainboots. With about a foot of snow on the ground I think it may be time to invest in a pair of snow boots. Here are some I am looking at and the best part they are all under $100.
I am slowly getting back to my active lifestyle which is always a difficult task in the dead of winter when it is too cold to workout outdoors and the gyms are packed with people trying to kick start their new years resolution. Today I am taking it back to San Francisco where we had an opportunity to take a day trip out to Muir Woods for some hiking. I not a big hiker or so I thought. Initially I thought it would be a fun walk in the woods. That walk turned out to be much more of a work out than I anticipated. Thank god for the jetted tub back in my hotel room. If you have never been to Muir Woods you must go. It is absolutely beautiful. These pictures do it no justice. I have been to a lot of cool places in my lifetime but I have to say Muir Woods definitely is up there on my list of faves. I am hoping to try this hiking thing again once the weather warms up. I am a fan of a cold but I am not a fan of getting lost in the woods in the cold so I will reserve my hiking adventures for warm sunny days.

The temperatures in NYC are nearing the single digits which usually means that people start to sacrifice fashion for warmth. I am not one of those people. I think it is possible to stay warm without sacrificing fashion. My go to look when it is nothing short of freezing out is the sweater dress. Paired with a pair of thick sweater tights and boots it is fashionable and warm at the same time. The best part is that now is a great time to find sweater dresses at half the price. Add a blazer for an extra layer and you are ready to go. Here are some ways that I style my go to Winter Uniform.

In the meantime the pics I am sharing today are a #TBT from two years ago. To this day I still own all the pieces in this post. The dress is from Asos and I bought it on sale for about $20 bucks. This specific dress is no longer available however Asos has a ton of dresses on clearance now and it will only get better during their after Christmas sales so be sure to check them out. Happy Holidays everyone and be sure to following me on Instagram to see what I am up to between posts.
Here are some options that are currently on sale at Asos right now.
This season cozy chunky knits are really in which means that this fashion hoarder was really excited to find that I had a few pieces stashed away from winters past. For a brisk Saturday in San Francisco I decided to bring out my cozy knit and pair it with a pair of leopard print flats for a cozy and casual look. We started out a day at the Ferry Building and made our way on foot up Embarcadero until we ended in Ghiradelli Square. When the sun is out in SF you definitely have to take advantage. By the way this is proof that I do not always wear heels. What weekend trend are you loving this season?
