I love a good cargo jacket... but often times I worry that it is too oversized/baggy and perhaps a bit boyish. The trick is to balance the masculine style with a feminine touch when it comes to styling the piece. I absolutely adore this utility jacket by REDValentino. I love that it is cinched at the waist to create a less boxy silhouette and how the patches give it an overall playful vibe. I paired the jacket with a lace babydoll dress, suede booties, and this adorable circle leather crossbody bag by Madewell.

REDValentino recently collaborated with artist Walky Land and created a limited edition capsule collection. Think classic pieces with feminine and whimsical graphics like hearts and floral. Normally I don't gravitate toward sweatshirts or even graphics, but for some reasons I am fond of this particular one I am wearing. The heart print, the embroidered floral, and the subtle touches of sequins against the bold black make a really great contrast. I decided to rock an all black ensemble with black denim, black booties with glittery stars, and a pink suede bag to bring out the girliness of the graphic.

What a treat Timber Cove was! A couple weeks ago, we had a wonderful getaway up in Sonoma Coast (Jenner By The Sea to be specific) with a few other Bay Area influencers. Despite the dreadful weekend traffic, the drive up the coast was so beautiful that Jeremy had a hard time keeping his eyes on the road! We checked into our room upon arrival and I literally gasped the moment I stepped into our ocean view suite. Rustic yet modern aesthetic, mid-century decor, vaulted ceiling with skylight, fireplace, record player and a spacious balcony with an endless ocean view gazing into the sunset. It was everything I could ever dream of!

It was a weekend full of exploring, fine dining, wine tasting, gallery viewing, and making new friends and memories. The highlight of my weekend though had to be sleeping underneath the stars. Having lived in urban cities all my life, I rarely (almost never) get to experience the sky being so black that you can see every little stars. We slept with the curtains open with the moonlight reflecting on the dark ocean water while the stars sparkled in the sky... it was purely magical.

If you are looking for an amazing coastal getaway, I highly recommend Timber Cove! For a limited time, Timber Cove is offering a midweek Spring special. My readers will enjoy 30% off ocean view suites and 15% off ocean cove view and ocean view rooms and two garden mule cocktails upon arrival. Book by 4/15 for stays through 5/31. Use promo code GARDENFAM15 for rooms or GARDENFAM30 for suites!

Style is key but functionality is also crucial. Not gonna lie, occasionally I would go for a bag simply for its look when in reality it can't even hold my wallet. I am not one to keep a million things in my bag but it would be nice if my essentials (wallet, phone, keys, camera, lens, glasses) can all fit. This Cuyana leather backpack is the answer. It is roomy without being bulky, the blush tone is absolutely darling, and it is convertible! It can be a purse or a backpack or both, you decide! I paired it with an all white ensemble. A dotted blouse, white denim, matching blush mules and blush marble watch.

Another wonderful meal we had in Portland was at Mother's Bistro & Bar. When I think of the word "mother" when associated with food, I think of home cooked meals. And that is exactly what chef and owner Lisa Schroeder has prepared at her restaurant... taking traditional homemade favorites and refining them with classical cooking techniques. We started off with a couple of appetizers -- $15,000 Dungeness crab cake and Pierogi. Why $15,000 you asked? Lisa told us that the crab cake was of the two dishes she mastered at culinary school in which the tuition was $30,000. I say it was worth the money, so delicious! And Pierogi is a potato-filled dumpling, one of my favorite thing ever! As for entrées, I had the chicken and dumplings and the meatloaf and gravy. Jeremy had mac and cheese and the pulled pork. You must be wondering why we had two entrées each... luckily you can order half sized portion, that way you can try more dishes if you have a hard time deciding! Everything was so hearty and comforting, needless to say we were stuffed! Thank you Lisa for having us at Mother's! We shall be back!
