Topshop Top (patterned version) // Topshop Skirt (last worn here) // Clare Vivier Clutch // Stella McCartney Sunglasses (on sale!!)

Hello!
I brought this outfit with me to Mexico but didn’t get a chance to wear it but jumped on the change to wear it the second we got back home! I clearly am having a moment with anything off the shoulder so when this crop top from Topshop caught my eye, I knew I’d love it. While it may be fall-like everywhere in the country except the southwest (it’s 80+ in San Diego!!) I can’t quite get in the mood for fall or dressing for fall. So, I will be sticking with summer for a bit longer and that means you’ll be seeing no shortage of short skirts, shorter shorts, tank tops and lots of dresses from me! I’ll try to incorporate more autumnal colors but you won’t find me in a sweater or layers and sadly the boots will have to wait!

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Sharing a few snapshots from my trip to Cabo. I always love jetting off to Mexico and because it is such an easy flight from San Diego, we tend to go quite often! We had a wonderfully relaxing week staying at Flora Farm with plenty of time spent at the pool and the beach. I’ve only been home a couple days but I’m missing Mexico already!
Have a great day!

This trip to Mexico has been one of my favorite yet (aside from the time Marc proposed!). It’s been the perfect combination of relaxing and exploring, I wouldn’t change a thing, except maybe extend the trip! Luckily, we have a few more days left to take in as much as possible. Yesterday, we woke up early to hike to the top of a mountain behind Flora Farm. The view from the top was spectacular; not only did we have an ariel view of the farm but we could see all the way to the marina in San Jose del Cabo and a decent amount of the beach. We spent the rest of the day reading by the pool with a little break to enjoy the amazing Cucumber Almond Gazpacho from Flora Farm…one of my favorite dishes! This off the shoulder top from Pink Blush was perfect for a day spent trotting from the pool to the restaurant to the cottage and then back to the restaurant for live music and dinner! I paired it with crisp white linen shorts and lace up sandals for a perfect summer/ vacation outfit!
Happy Thursday!
Salud!

Cabo Nights

Before I left for Cabo, I was browsing eShakti.com in search of a new dress to wear while on vacation. I stumbled upon this dress and was instantly in love with the embroidery detail and knew it would be the perfect piece to bring to Mexico. One of the things  that sold me about eShakti is the fact that each of their pieces are made specifically for you, based on your individual measurements. How cool is that?! Not only that, but the quality of their products and the fabrics that they use is beautiful! Because I’m near 6 feet tall, I have a hard time finding maxi dresses that are long enough so I was beyond excited when I was able to order a maxi dress customized to the exact length I like.  Not only does eShakti have dresses, but they have a great selection of jackets ( I’m obsessed with this one) skirts and tops. You can find eShakti on Facebook, instagram and twitter!

Hola!
Wrapping up our second day at Flora Farm in San Jose del Cabo and I’ve decided I never want to leave!! We started our day with a relaxing morning on the farm including a walk around the property and an outdoor yoga class. We then made our way into town with a quick stop at the beach for fresh coconut juice. We spent our afternoon strolling through the streets of San Jose del Cabo, popping into the shops and trying the local margaritas and cervezas. Two thumbs up! We then headed back to the farm to harvest produce for our dinner and took a dip in the pool. A perfect day!
To keep cool I paired a favorite pair of shorts with an easy tube top and gladiator sandals, the perfect combo for walking around town!

Happy Monday!
I’m spending the week in Cabo enjoying the beautiful Flora Farm, sipping farmaritas and laying by the pool! Traveling to Cabo from San Diego is a breeze but being comfortable on the flight is always a top priority; sandals, layers and a big bag are always a must of me. Wearing a loose pair of distressed shorts with easy Birkenstock inspired sandals from Call It Spring along with an easy button up to complete my travel style. The perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall! I’ll be posting all week but if you want a closer look at my Mexican getaway follow along on Instagram!

Inspiring Tablescapes

One of the things I love so much about entertaining is creating a beautiful tablescape for the event. I am always on the lookout for new ways to layer dinnerware, napkin and table cloth sets and creative menus and place cards. The options are endless and while I think the most important aspect of entertaining is ensuring your guest have a blast, a stunning table sure doesn’t hurt! Sharing a few tablescapes that have me  inspired…hope you find some inspiration in them too!

While summer may have unofficially ended yesterday, I don’t see myself trading in my rompers and dresses for jeans anytime soon. This bright floral romper from Topshop was the perfect Labor Day outfit and was so easy to throw on for dinner after a day playing at the beach. I kept things bright with yellow rock studs and a hot pink Stella McCartney clutch! I’ve started packing for a trip to Mexico next week so don’t be surprised if you see a lot of color over the next couple of weeks! I’ve got bright colors on the mind! Oh, and margaritas!

Happy Tuesday!
