May SF Beach Attire.

I love going to the beach all year round but sunsets in San Francisco at the beach aren’t those warm summer nights you might hope for.  I still like to walk bare foot in the sand but I make sure to bundle up with a really good wind resistant jacket and a hat to keep my hair from whipping all over the place.

Of course I wear shoes to the beach but take them off the minute my feet can hit the sand.

My go to outerwear is my Helly Hansen jacket and Big Truck hat.  Some of the most beautiful sunsets are the cold ones.  The colors tend to splay a lot more vibrantly.

After being at work all day, I love to go outside and be silly.  There’s something about being at the beach that makes me want to play like a kid again.

Hoping to catch a few more good ones this weekend while away in Paso Robles!

Hawaiian Skies.

Last week I got to spend time in Hawaii with family just soaking in the good weather and relaxing.  I love nothing more than a good sunset or sunrise and I made sure to park it right near the beach whenever the sun was on the horizon.

Each day brought unique skies and tranquil days.  I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos this week!

Pedal Power.

imageAs you saw in this post, Chelsea and I really enjoyed the town of Lucca in Italy.  It was the smallest piece of perfect located inside the city walls.  It was also unbelievably awesome that we could ride around the entire wall on bikes.  I love riding bikes and in Europe it is so much easier and safer to ride around cities.

My preferred transportation is bike (or obviously horse if that were possible :D) so it was great to be able to rent bikes and cruise around.  The path was also canopied by tall, beautiful trees that left splattered shadows.  Lucca was very quaint and had a few incredibly unique stores that we discovered.  There is also a very large market that consumes the outside streets of the city.  It’s definitely a wonderful day trip destination.

Spain Update.

IMG_3066OK, the most beautiful place I’ve ever encountered has hit my radar…  The Mediterranean rendered me speechless.  Spending the past week there was the absolute BEST way to end an almost 2 months in Europe.  The water, the weather, and the time spent their with my friend, Shannon, was priceless.  I thought I’d leave you with these photos while I work on organizing the rest of my photos from all over Europe.  I have so many places to share with you about great food, fun things to do, and of course fashion 🙂

Italian Hide Out

Starting the trip in Italy was amazing.  I’m still on an incredible adventure but wanted to share wine of the most beautiful places we found in Italy.  Up tucked away in the Italian mountains was a very, very small village (no more than 20 residents max) and the plus side of this was enjoying some of the most phenomenal views while relaxing in the afternoons after a long day of wandering.
