Sunshiny Day.

I think it's pretty apparent I'm a sucker for a sunny day, even if I have to layer it up to enjoy - I just throw on all of my favorites. Speaking of favorite, check out the ipad case my favorite picked for me. Besides being cute with its red self, the keyboard inside makes blogging life on the road soo much easier. Always thinking, that one.

And these booties. I'm loving them something fierce.

Eagle Eye.

Eagle Eye.

Lanvin / Lanvin chain necklace, $1,435 / Zara gemstone necklace

Something has definitely caught my eye. And that is BIG eagle statement necklaces. Tucked under the collar of a simple white blouse adds a certain patriotic edge. I swoon.

3 Things.

There's nothing like spending the holiday with my two favorite gals. This year my mom and I took the show on the road and visited my Grandmother in Texas for Thanksgiving. The trip itself wasn’t all too eventful, but the time spent together was priceless. As I get older, I find more and more it’s the simple things that matter most.

1.      My mom & Gammy enjoying after dinner warmers

2.      Shopping for accessories and sparkly baubles at Charming Charlie

3.      Coming home to my sweet boy

From my mom and dad, to my gorgeous grandmothers, to my fantastic godfather, to my best friends, my favorite, my little Ziggy and everyone those who support this blog, I'm so grateful for the guidance, support, honest and love you give my life. I truly have so much to be thankful for.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! xo

Wild Child.

Betsey Johnson Rese wedge

Suede pop of color with a glittery wedge - what more can a girl ask for? These shoes make me smile. They make me so happy I just want to do a cartwheels...Betsey Johnson-style that is.

3 Things.

Another great weekend with some of the best people I know and tons of time with little Ziggy. What can I say, I'm a lucky girl and have so much to be thankful for.

1. Ziggy looking handsome in his holiday sweater.

2. Carolina-style pulled pork sliders from Cin Cin (almost as good as the ones made by my favorite)

3. Pure brilliance - my latest addiction

Whether a mini, a-line, or pencil a leather skirt is a necessity for Fall and Winter. I'm obsessed with pretty much everything leather - the softer, the better. I'm currently looking for my perfect leather silhouette.

Oldie But Goodie.

Missoni for Target dress//Julie Collection bracelet

I just love a simple shift dress with a fun pattern, especially when its an iconic print like Missoni. And I jump at the chance to wear one whenever it's warm since San Francisco's weather doesn't always allow for this - honestly is there anything easier to wear than a dress? Just add a fun accessory and neutral sandals (or the reverse) and you're set....pending the weather report, of course.

J Crew x Vogue.

Just last week I posted here about my search for the perfect little brown boots.  Last Thursday I found the booties of my dreams at a J Crew x Vogue cocktail party celebrating the Holiday Collection. With each collection, I fall more in love with JCrew more and more. How is that even possible?!

Three Things.

This last week was more hectic and stressful than weeks past so a trip to North Carolina was exactly what I needed. From breakfasts at home to a stroll down the main drag in Southern Pines to cozy naps on the couch I couldn't ask for more, especially because it was time all spent with my favorite. While it's a joke amongst my friends that I always seem to find myself in long distance relationships, I've never felt so close to someone and he's all the way across the country. Lucky for me, in just a few months this will all change as he packs up and moves out West. I couldn't be more thrilled to begin this chapter of my life with someone so special. And of course, the cross country roadtrip we're planning just add to all the excitement of the adventures ahead.

1. Feeling Fall in North Carolina

2. Listening to my favorite play the guitar on a Saturday night

3. Wagon Wheel, by Old Crow Medicine Show - you just can't go anywhere without hearing this song. I love that.

Crab Dip Do-Over.

During happy hour at Virginia's on the Bay* in Texas, the table shared crab dip. Honestly, the appetizer was so-so and found myself craving something so much better. So as soon as I got home, I couldn't wait to try a new version and this time I wasn't left disappointed.

*While Virginia's crab dip left little to be desired it's  the perfect spot for drinks while watching the sunset.

11oz softened cream cheese
1 small finely chopped onion
5 tbsp mayonnaise
1lb fresh crab meat
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion, mayonnaise, crab meat, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Spread mixture into a 1 quart baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove crab dip from the oven and stir well and spoon into hollowed out bread bowl. Place bread bowl and chunks of bread on a medium baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot (I like to add a little cocktail sauce too)

3 Things.

After a quick weekend away at the beach in North Padre Island, I'm beyond thrilled to return home to gorgeous weather - hello, 80 degrees in November; in San Francisco. Although I do still wish I was walking the beach and eating fresh seafood daily with my mom, grandmother and aunt. A girls weekend with three generations was nothing short of fun and constant laughter. Mustang Island never saw all the trouble coming its way ;)

1. I heart the beach forever and always

2. Streets lined in Texas flags. Only in Texas would you see this....

3. Walking the footsteps of the best gal I know - my mom.
