Niner Wine Estates

 photo IMG_0109.jpg

If you're traveling on Hwy 101 in California and you see signs for Paso Robles, STOP THERE!  I can't tell you how many trips I have taken on 101 and just flew by this place and finally I realized what I had been missing all of these years!

We traveled to a cute little beach town a couple of weeks ago and on the drive there we passed by Paso Robles.  It was lined with vineyard after vineyard and after being in the car for a few hours on our way to the beach we decided to stop and do a quick tasting.  It was hard to choose where to stop as every place was just gorgeous so we randomly picked Niner Wine Estates.

It was gorgeous and the wine was delicious!  We actually took a few bottles with us (my favorite was the sauvignon blanc!).  I wish I would have taken more pictures but I was more focused on drinking the wine at the moment!  We loved it so much we actually stopped there again the next day to have a delicious lunch at their restaurant before the long drive home.

Galavanting Around Paris With Jeanne Damas

 photo 819b18d83b5f87b04b92a64d583c721d-1.jpg

What fashion loving girl doesn't dream of living in Paris at some point?  Having your cute little Parisian apartment surrounded by gorgeous architecture, cafe's, and couture.  Well, I have to thank The Coveteur who introduced me to the fabulous Jeanne Damas a while back.  Ever since reading their story on her I have been absolutely girl crushing and living vicariously through her on her instagram account where she always posts photos of her sensational life.  She also has a personal blog where she will do a monthly post with photos of what she has been up to.  Trust me francophiles, you won't be disappointed!

What is Jeanne's go to beauty product?  Red lipstick!  But of course!  :)

Fall In Napa Valley

 photo IMG_0100.jpg

When you live near Napa Valley taking the time to go out and visit the vineyards in the Fall is just a must. As my friends are filling up my Facebook feed with photos of their kids at pumpkin patches I thought I'd do a little session of my own in the vineyards at Charles Krug, one of my favorite wineries.  The vines may have the magical fall colors upon them but the weather is nothing like fall as it was in the upper 80's this day and a perfect sunny California day!

Song Obsession: "Paris (Aeroplane Remix)" by Friendly Fires

 While going through my instagram one day this Flipagram on Olivia Palermo's account popped up of her Paris fashion week roundup.  I fell in love with the song she used and I think any Francophile/Paris lover is going to become obsessed with it like I have!  The song is by Friendly Fires and it is called "Paris (Aeroplane Remix).

Leopard & Orange

 photo unnamed-1.jpg

 Here I am on another scorching hot Palm Springs day!  We hit about 110 degrees on this day and were heading out for the evening.  I decided to wear this leopard print midi dress out to dinner.  Even though it's more material than a shorter dress the flowy-ness of it kept me pretty cool, even though in that temperature it's almost impossible to completely cool down while you're outside.  The good thing is the restaurants and stores in Palm Springs really crank up the AC so if your'e inside you're always comfortable!

Dress - Asos

Bag - Zara

Shoes - Zigisoho
