As many of you know I recently traveled to Hawaii for my honeymoon! Hawaii was absolutely breathtaking and one of my favorite parts was waking up to see the sunrise and watching the sunset each night. We decided to do some photos with an amazingly talented photographer Love + Water. They do some really cool stuff with their shoots and I loved their work because it was so different then most of the other stuff you see out there. They specialize in Land and water shoots. So basically at our shoot we were able to take some photos in the water as well as on the sand. I was so happy with the way they came out!
I just wanted to share some of the images with you guys! I would highly recommend doing a shoot at sunrise if you plan on honeymooning in Hawaii! It is such a great way to remember your trip and the sunrises are are so light and amazing nothing like we ever see here on the East Coast. I will be posting my Hawaii travel guide next week so stay tuned and see below for some of my favorite images from our shoot!
It’s me again talking about our trip to Napa! I can’t stop because it was seriously SO amazing.
While I was packing for Napa I was really confused about the weather there. When I would look at the forecast the temperatures ranged from the 40’s to the mid 80’s so it was’nt very easy to know exactly what to pack! I tried to pack pretty versatile things- this Leith dress from Nordstrom and Jean Shirt ended up being PERFECT for the weather in Napa. I also paired this outfit with some booties. I ended up wearing the jean shirt in the morning and when we went to lunch but by time 2pm hit it was 80 degrees out and I tied it around my waist and it still looked super cute. This look is really easy to replicate too with any type of bodycon dress and a jean shirt. You can even pair it with a checkered flannel and solid dress or the other way around! I love super easy to copy, cute and comfortable outfits and this is definitely one for you! This dress also comes in sooo many different colors and is only $55. It also comes in a long sleeve option which I love for the colder months. I will link it for you guys below!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I just returned from my honeymoon and one of the stops was in Napa Valley! It was absolutely amazing there to say the least.
To start of, we flew direct into San Francisco and rented a car through the on site Enterprise at the airport. From there we drove to Napa. It’s about and hour and a half drive from the airport but we decided to go out of our way a little and stop over at the Golden Gate Bridge which I defiantly recommend if you haven’t been to San Francisco before.
Once we arrived in Napa at our hotel, Hotel Yountville they told us our room was immediately ready for us which was amazing so we would get to change and get out to the vineyards ASAP! I will touch on our hotel a little- it was so nice and very quaint and cute exactly how I picture a hotel in Napa to me. They had an amazing pool and the Spa staff was incredible we went for massages our first full day there and the staff was great. Our room had an extra large king bed, a huge bathroom and each room had a very large patio. At no time did I feel the hotel was over crowded even though I believe the hotel was almost fully booked during our stay. The hotel also had a car that would drive you to dinner each night which was very convenient. The hotel had a pool, fire pits and a bar which we would visit each day after we were done at the vineyards we toured. I will post some pictures below!
This was our huge king bed at the hotel!
The pool and Fire pit at the hotel- the bar was also right near here as well
Every room had a fire place in it! We ended up using it most nights after dinner when the temperatures would drop down to the mid 40’s
We went to 6 different Vineyards and each had something different to offer. My Favorites were Joseph Phelps and Stags’ Leap. They Tour at Joseph Phelps took place on the terrace and you got to look out over onto the beautiful Vineyards. Stags’ Leap was also very different because the tasting included an interactive 90 minutes tour with some pretty generous wine pours along the way LOL! It was very interesting to hear what happened to Napa during prohibition and the history of the estate in which has stood there for over 100 years. We also visited some othr Vineyards which included Cakebread Cellars, Caymus, Chandon, and Darioush. Check with your hotel before hand too because a lot of hotel have deals with the vineyards for a free tasting or some type of discount.
Some Dinner and Lunch places I would highly recommend are Farmstead at Longmeadow Ranch, PRESS Steakhouse and if you are looking to splurge on an AMAZING dinner one night I highly recommend the Restaurant at Auberge Du Soleil. the menu is price fixed and on the expensive side but its worth it! If anyone has any questions about Napa I would love to hear from you just leave a comment or email me!
Aloha from Maui Everyone! I just wanted to get on here quick and post about this jumpsuit that I wore to my rehearsal dinner for our wedding last week. It was soo flattering and super comfortable. Not to mention it is only $88 from Revolve from one of my new recently found favorite brands By the Way. They have some of the cutest clothing items from shirts and dress to pants and skirts. I have found that there brand has super affordable looks that are very similar to a lot of higher end designer clothing! So I think thats a win!
The fit of this jumpsuit was pretty good- I am pretty short (5’3) so I did have to get it hemmed slightly so the bottoms didn’t drag on the ground. I sized up in this to a size 2. I did try my normal size 0 as well in this but I felt that the size 2 was a little more comfortable. If you are going for a more tight jumpsuit look though I would stick to your normal size.
As for shoes- paired this with my Christina Louboutin Platform Pigalle pumps in Nude. They made the outfit a little more dressy but you could totally pair this with a pair of wedges to dress it down slightly. I also wore my white Marmount Studded Gucci Bag. I will link everything with the below photos!
October is my absolute favorite time of year! I love waking up to the crisp fall air and all of the fun activities that come along with the season. We went to a cute outdoor party the other day and it was pretty warm when we left our house but I knew that as soon as the sun goes down during the fall the temperature drop as well. So I opted to wear really cute Frame Denim jeans and a white J Crew t-shirt and this really cute dark green plaid button up which I had tied around my waist until the temps dropped down. I also paired these with my platform converse sneakers (soo obsessed) and my gold round Gucci sunglasses. I linked most of the stuff I am wearing for you guys!
