Tasting Fall in Wine Country

L'Aventure Tasting_4 L'Aventure Tasting_1 L'Aventure Tasting_2 L'Aventure Tasting_3 L'Aventure Tasting_5 L'Aventure Tasting_6 We got our first taste of fall recently. I thought I wasn't ready to let go of long summer days, but now I find myself craving all things fall. I want to go apple picking, carve pumpkins, wrap myself in plaid throws, and sip apple cider in front of a fire. The white blazer is a staple in my wardrobe. No matter how sloppy I feel, I know I can throw it on with jeans and a pair of heels and my day will instantly become brighter. I don't buy into the whole no white after Labor Day rule, so you can be sure to see this many more times as summer fades and fall really gets underway. Jacket: J.

This works great for him but creates a balancing act for me when getting ready for one of his work events. Tonight, for example, the company is hosting an open house cocktail party to celebrate the completion of their new headquarters complex. ...

A Splash of Color

After long winter months filled with navy, maroon, black, and grey, I always get so excited for the punches of color ushered in by spring and summer. The long days and warm nights that define these seasons beg for bright yellows, punchy pastels, hot pinks, and the most vibrant shades of every other color you can dream up. There is something about blending, mixing, and pairing these fun hues that makes getting dressed that much more exciting. Honestly, I am smiling just thinking about it. Spring Colors_Close Up ...

Out With the Girls

Last Saturday I was getting ready to go over to my friends' place following the vague directions to "dress cute casual" so we can "either go out or stay in." Not the easiest of challenges as my original plan was to pajama-party-it with a movie and a bottle of wine. But, no big, jeans and a halter should do (though I did toss a cute romper in my purse just in case). After a hug and kiss from the little one ...
