Bells and Muscle Tees

July 23rd, 2014

Muscle tees are still all the rage it seems, and there is nothing I like more than a good muscle tee than bells and muscle tees. Still obsessing over my Novella Royale bells (I got another color too), I couldn’t wait to pair the two trends together. I wore this look a few months ago but just haven’t posted because I am a slacker! There is currently a gigantic hole in our backyard right by where I am standing in this photo since our renovation/addition has started. I promise to share some before and after pictures of the project.

Anyhoo – I love this outfit so much, I think I absolutely must wear it again soon. Are you still loving the muscle tee trend?

Project Juice

When Project Juice contacted me to come try some of their delicious juice made locally in San Francisco, I couldn’t resist. While I do not believe in juice cleanses or any sort of deprivation dieting, I am all for adding in fresh juices to an already healthy diet. Now that I am eating for two, I thought what better way to pack in key nutrients than trying out some top notch juices! I visited the Polk Street location in San Francisco last weekend and upon entering the quaint little shop, I was already obsessed with the decor. It was rustic and industrial – right up my alley.

The customer service is awesome and they have fresh samples to try daily. I was lucky enough to test out several of their yummy juices and definitely walked away with a few favorites that I will certainly be back for. I think my absolute favorite was the Turmeric Milk. It tasted like a nice iced chai tea – sooo delish! I also loved the Flu Shot, which is a powerful and spicy blend of ingredients including cayenne pepper. It clears your sinuses and can be added to other green juices to up the flavor (if you’re like me and can’t handle the taste of pure green veggie juice). You can find out more about Project Juice on their website, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. I highly recommend stopping by one of their bay area locations if you’re in the area!

Maximum Floral

July 15th, 2014

floral maxi 1

I adore maxi dresses and when you add in a big floral pattern, I love them even more. I scooped up this floral maxi dress on major sale at Urban Outfitters over a month ago and finally got around to wearing it recently. With the morning all day sickness, there hasn’t been much of anything except for pajamas in my life lately until just recently. I wore this out with simple studded flats for a trip to grab some ice cream the other weekend. It has been sweltering lately in Walnut Creek and this dress is the perfect, breezy staple that is just so easy to throw on and go. Gaston clearly agrees.

Big News

July 7th, 2014

gaston announcement

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know the news: I am pregnant! I made the announcement after my 12 week doctor’s appointment last week, but wanted to share more of the story with my lovely blog readers (since I have been kind of MIA the last few months).

We found out on Cinco de Mayo, so obviously our plans of tacos and margaritas quickly went out the window. Keeping the secret has been quite a challenge since I am usually one to blurt things out all over the place. It has been especially hard these last few months because I was keeping two secrets. No, not twins…but my older sister is pregnant as well! She is due in December and I am due in January. We are all over-the-moon excited.

The last few months have been spent in bed for me – literally. Whoever named it morning sickness obviously never had a bad case of it, because mine was all day sickness. I pretty much slept, ate, and worked from bed, getting up only to shower and use the bathroom from weeks 7 to 12. I feel like I lost the whole month of June! Thank God for my hubby and amazing mom for taking care of me and the house while I was out of commission. Luckily, I think the worst is over and I am looking forward to feeling like a normal human being again! Which will hopefully mean I will be able to peel myself out of bed and into a few outfits for le old blog.

That is the biggest news in our family at the moment! Although we did start construction this morning on our home addition, which I can’t wait to share with you all as it progresses. Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

Neon and Gold

Neon and Gold

 

Nothing is better in summer than neon, except maybe neon and gold. The pair is unexpected but refreshing. My first instinct would be to pair neon with subtle accents or even cool silver for the contrast, but something about neon and gold just works! I paired this gorgeous J. Crew dress here with fabulous gold leaf earrings and a chunky gold bangle, both from Burns Jewellers. The lucite clutch and nude heels are just the icing on the cake with this outfit. Will you pair neon and gold this summer?
