Hope you are ready for this... I will be posting all of my Cabo content from now til forever! Ok, not forever, just two weeks straight! They are great, I promise! Anyways, these photos were shot at sunset literally ten minutes after checking into our hotel, which means this is also the outfit I flew in. I kept it fairly simple in a casual shirtdress, woven leather huaraches (c'mon I HAD to wear these going to Mexico), fedora, saddle leather bag and sassed it up with a neck scarf! This is how I travel in style, what about you?
When I visited Farmhouse Inn up in Forestville (see post here), I took a little detour to the other side of wine country to St. Helena and had an amazing dinner at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch. We ordered so many appetizers because we couldn't decide, they all sounded so good. So we ended up with deviled eggs, artichokes, steak tartare and butter biscuits! For entree, we had the salmon with summer squash and the BBQ ribs. We had rosé and pinot noir from the Long Meadow Ranch winery and they paired perfectly with our meal! And last but not least, we had beignets with a caramel sauce for dessert (sadly it was too dark to photograph by that time) and they were so so so delicious! The restaurant setting was beautiful as well with a lovely outdoor seating area. We had such a wonderful time, thank you Long Meadow Ranch for hosting us!
People say third time's the charm and I believe it! I returned to Farmhouse Inn for the third time and it was more amazing than ever! I was here last Fall and Winter (you can check out the posts here, here and here) but Summer at Farmhouse is something else! I even got an upgrade from my previous King Deluxe room to a King Luxury room which is oh-so-spacious! As always, I am a fan of the incredible marbled bathroom (equipped with a jetted tub, steam room, and heated floor), the vaulted ceiling, the double sided fireplace, the beautiful patio, the comfiest bed, and the lovely decor. And of course, I can't forget the amazing 3-course breakfast, welcome treats, and the turn-down cookies! Needless to say, I had a marvelous time! Thank you Farmhouse for having me once again!
It's been awhile since I have posted, I was busy with work and then took a 10-day long staycation (Sonoma) and vacation (Cabo). I have so much content which I cannot wait to start posting! Let's start with a couple of weeks ago when I was down in Santa Cruz for an editorial shoot for work. My job is pretty sweet especially when I get to work with awesome models whom I become friends with. You know how once in awhile you meet someone for the first time but you click instantly and cannot stop talking? That was the case with Jelena. She was such a pleasure to work with and we shared many common interests such as photography and blogging. She even took these photos for me while we were down there! And in case you are wondering... I am rocking Madewell (see details below) from head to toe (minus the scarf and sunglasses)...
I have been trying this new thing where I am drastically minimizing my wardrobe (and things in general). I downsized my apartment from a two-bedroom to a one-bedroom which means I no longer have a master-bedroom-turned-closet. It's been a real struggle getting rid of things I love (but don't need), there are days where I am literally moving things from one corner to another corner because I have no room to store them. It is a work in progress but I am getting there! I am focusing on keeping classic pieces that will last a long time... like this cotton poplin shirt by Everlane. The square silhouette gives it a modern twist without looking too boxy, it actually looks quite flattering. I paired it with some vintage denim shorts and simple leather sandals also by Everlane. Keeping it simple and classic this summer!
