Tribal Threads.

IMG_7101I’ve been digging Top Shop’s trends lately and when I saw THIS thick threaded tribal skirt, I knew it was right up my alley.  It’s comfortable and fits like a glove.  Also, since it’s a thicker material I can wear it with a tank top in the summertime and a long sleeve in the winter.  A perfect addition to a capsule closet.

IMG_7106I add my fringe heels here and call it a day.  They are super comfortable as well and go with pretty much everything.

LBD.

A little black dress is a great investment because you will have so many purposes for this one piece of clothing.  Whenever I’m stumped over what to wear that is dressy enough but not too much, I throw on this dress from Top Shop (sold out but similar here).

I add this Madewell gold necklace to add some flare to the high neckline.

These fringe heels are the perfect way to add some fun to a simple black dress.

The back also has a long slit that I liven up by wearing a bright neon soft bra.  This way you can still wear a bra but have it be fun that it’s showing.

Voila!  This is my way of dressing subtle but adding my own style.

National Park Summer.

This past weekend I made my first trip to Yosemite/Tuolumne Meadows and was in complete awe of the beauty.  I can’t believe it’s taken so long to get there and I can’t wait to get back.  Here are a few photo reasons to go.  Above is a more eastern view of half dome.

More photos to come.  What’s your favorite national park?

Barn Daze.

Since we have finally received some rain, it’s so nice to see the hills so green!  I put Maz in this plush, beautiful and green pasture to play with his brother Phillip (the white horse in the photos).  They were having a great time so I brought my camera and snapped some pics of them.  As much as I love winter, there’s nothing like a sunny barn day to relax and hang out.

Maz was really loving running around!

After they’d run around for a while, they’d stop and pluck some grass.

Then I let them join their other horse friend, Joia, and the birds came swooping in.  I wish there was such a thing as a professional horse photographer, I’d be all over that 🙂

Biking in Napa.

 Rob and I spent last weekend in Napa hanging out after I won a free night’s stay at the Carneros Inn.  I know!  I used to be one of those people that said “I never win anything” until I won this great stay :).  The resort is beautiful and posh so if you’re looking for a fancy weekend away in Napa, this is definitely the spot.  We took the property bikes out for the day when we got there and spent some time pedaling around the back roads.  It was beautiful and it felt great to be cruising around the orange and red vineyards.

Making sure we were following the back roads map 🙂

Snapping pics along the way.

Goodbye Fall, It’s Been Nice.

This weekend we walked through downtown Petaluma and you could have sworn we were in Boston by the color of the trees. I had to stop and take pictures of these gorgeous maples turning from green to red.

Lastly, these gorgeous yellow leaves against the brilliant blue sky.

It was a beautiful day for primary colors! Now the trees will be leafless and the rain will come, I do love that too!
