I have to admit. Christmas at the beach is different. Not having grown up here, it just doesn't feel very Christmas-ey without colder weather and snow. It does get a bit chilly in San Diego but when it's 60-70 degrees during the day it's pretty confusing this time of year. That being said, it is kind of neat to see a fully decorated Christmas tree right next to the palm trees and ocean and San Diego has it's own holiday style. I do enjoy not having to completely bundle up to walk around town and I never have to scrape ice off my windshield in the morning so no complaints here! So on this chilly afternoon I jumped at the opportunity to wrap up in my favorite holiday scarf. PS this is a Topman scarf so its a great gift for any guy or girl!

What do you like about your city's Christmas vibe/don't like?



Have a great Wednesday, thank you for stopping by!

Nothing gets me quite as excited about dressing up for Christmas like a full red skirt. I found this ultra affordable one here and am already planning a few different ways to style it for this holiday season. The day I wore this skirt was so windy with my hair flying in my face and the skirt flying up Marilyn Monroe style haha. I really got to test out the twirl of the skirt and I give it an A! Pair it with a chambray or denim shirt and some glittery accessories for a fun party look.





Hope you have a lovely Monday!

I brought this PIOL dress with me in case we wanted to have dinner somewhere fancy. I have really enjoyed designing my custom dresses, see my other one here, and notice a HUGE difference in quality and fit by having them made custom. You cannot buy pieces like this at the store. I designed this one to be a little more casual so I could wear it to work or dinner. I like it with white but could also see myself wearing it with black tights and heels. A big thank you to PIOL for giving me the opportunity to customize my dresses this year! 

Welcome to Monday! Make it a good week.

This is one of my favorite looks from Park City. It is so cozy and still looks fancy. When I take off my coat and scarf it instantly becomes a casual everyday look. This sweater is so flattering and keeps its shape all day long! I really wish it came in petite but I think I pulled it off. For those of you asking about these moto gloves, they are such a steal and are real leather! Scoop them up before someone else gets wind! 

On this day, Dave and I had coffee at Publik (again) and I tried the Lavender Pear Toast with Blue Cheese and followed that with their hot chocolate. I was talking about High West Distillery & Restaurant on Monday and I found a photo in my collection of vacation snaps that I am pretty proud of, as well as, Dave staring off into the mountain pondering important life things haha. It is such a luxury to spend time with no plans just doing whatever you feel like doing, I definitely think we needed the time together without the everyday distractions. Being launched back to the real world, I find myself struggling to get back into the swing of things. It's like time stood still for 5 days.

Day 2 in gorgeous Park City, Utah. I can't get over the snowy mountains and gorgeous scenery at the Stein Eriksen Lodge where we stayed. I wore this to dinner at High West a very cool distillery and restaurant that is a must when in town. It was so nice to wrap up in this soft blanket scarf all day. I find myself using it as a blanket more often than not because its quite big and cozy! Perfect for hot chocolate and a good book. What I loved about the town this time of year is that even though Christmas decorations were just starting to go up, the town was already Christmas-y. I loved the distressed building fronts and green full trees in unexpected places.






Have a great Monday!

I had such a great vacation in Park City over the holiday. It was fun to actually get to wear my winter clothing again! Our first day we had coffee and gourmet toast at Publik Coffee shop which was really delicious. I had the habenero jam with goat cheese toast (!). We then explored the stunning Stein Eriksen Lodge and ended up playing checkers while having a couple of beers. The picture of the mountains above was the view from our balcony and it was really breathtaking. We headed out to charming Main St. for dinner at 501 on Main.  I was so cozy in this emerald green buffalo plaid top, it is so soft and one of my favorites for the winter so I advise you to get it before its gone, it also comes in red!  





Hope you are having a great week. Have you ever visited Park City? What was your favorite restaurant?
