Yes, a sequin blazer for new years is not groundbreaking, but it works and this is a good one. If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught my Something Navy November drop try on at Nordstrom. I tried on almost the entire collection and only walked away with this blazer. Why? It is a real stunner. The blazer is covered with black dazzling sequins with a hint of gold for irresistible, eye-catching allure.
Last week I hit the road with my girls from San Francisco to Yountville for the ultimate ladies who lunch adventure at the new Restoration Hardware Yountville.
On a Thursday morning it took us about an hour and a half to get there (after a quick stop at Rustic Bakery in the Marin Country Mart <- worth the stop). Yountville is about twenty minutes north of downtown Napa and my new favorite stop when exploring wine country. If you love wine and luxury then you will love Yountville.
RH Yountville features a standalone full-service restaurant and wine tasting room with parking in the middle of the two structures. You can snag food, wine, coffee, and shop the latest Restoration Hardware designs in one spot. Restoration Hardware Yountville is also right in the heart of town and just steps away from some of my favorite tasting rooms in Yountville.
I made a reservation for five for lunch about a week before we dined there without a problem. There was a bit of a wait when we got there giving us plenty of time to snap some photos. The lighting is AMAZING so charge your phone and be prepared to take a photo of pretty much everything. The entire space is an Instagram Restoration Hardware dream!
After about a twenty minute wait we were seated and shortly greeted by our lovely server. Everything from the place settings to the champagne flutes had a Restoration Hardware special touch. The food was solid and priced accordingly for the neighborhood. I shared the burger and shrimp cocktail with a friend and it was perfect for an afternoon in wine country. The entire experience was opulent + excellent and I will 100% be back.
What I Ate:
RH Burger – Sharp American Cheddar Cheese, Pickles, Onions, Dijonnaise, Lettuce, and Tomato $22
Shrimp Cocktail – Lemon, Dijonnaise, and Cocktail Sauce $20
Restoration Hardware Yountville is open daily, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The restaurant serves brunch until about 3:30 p.m. and then transitions into dinner service.
Raise your hand if you sleep in an old t-shirt and boxer shorts from your ex?
If you just raised your hand you are me and you should keep reading this blog post. If you did not raise your hand you can keep reading, but you probably don’t need my fancy pajama lifestyle tips and tricks.
So if you are like me you sleep in whatever you can get your paws on before you hit the sack. I used to be the girl who sometimes slept with her makeup on and almost always slept in a random t-shirt and ratty old shorts from my college boyfriend. Well now at the ripe old age of 32 things have changed my sleepytime routine over here. I ALWAYS wash my face. I’m talking facewash (not just wipes) and after that, I have a nighttime facial routine. Yep, I’ve got lotions and potions just for nighttime…but that’s another blog post. Today we are talking about that fancy pajama lifestyle.
Now introducing a fancy pajama lifestyle into your nighttime routine does NOT have to be expensive. I’ve managed to round-up six affordable options that can instantly up your pajama game. I own them, I wear them and I love them!
I love a little loungewear in my life and these sweater leggings are premium. I’ve only worn them around the house, but I am going to figure out a way to style them outside of the house.
That Kimono Lifestyle
I’m HERE for a kimono, especially when both of these kimonos come from local San Francisco shop Kim + Ono. Snag my exact kimono here. Wear it around the house, wear it as a bathing suit coverup or wear it with a tank and jeans.
Because nothing says fancy like a top and shorts that match! Yes, these shorts are from Abercrombie and YES I know that I am 32. I’m wearing a medium on top, a large on bottom and holding onto that coffee for dear life.
The best $58 I’ve spent in a long time. This little number from Topshop instantly ups your loungewear game. This short, flirty satin robe patterned in smart stripes is easy to pack and even easier to wear.
The Abercrombie shorts make another appearance this time with this super soft top. I’m not sure if this top is even considered to be a pajama top – I just know that I slept in it last night, I’m still wearing it and I really really like it,
If you are going to buy anything buy this sleepshirt. The contrast piping outlines this classic menswear-inspired nightshirt and it is styled to flatter the feminine figure with its low-cut neckline and short shirttail hem. Hello, sexytime!

I spend a ton of time prepping and packing for travel…but almost always end up overpacking – especially when I am going on a road trip. Why do I always end up throwing in an extra reusable tote filled with random crap right before we drive away? I am usually only going away for a night or two and have managed to throw everything from my apartment into my tiny mini cooper -leaving zero room for me or Benji!
While I’d like to report that those days are completely over…
They are almost over thanks to the perfect weekender in these photos. There are so many things that I love about this $79 bag from my friends over at Sole Society I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to it!
Why I Love the Mason Weekend Bag from Sole Society:
The price! How is the magical bag only $79?
The bottom shoe compartment. This is a MAJOR game changer. I’ve managed to fit one pair of boots and two pairs of flats into the shoe compartment. This is a MAJOR space saver and one of the key benefits to this bag!
The top handles and removable crossbody strap make it so easy to carry (it won’t break your back).
It’s faux leather and wears really nicely. I’ve taken this weekender on many trips and it still looks brand new.
The lining! I will update this post with a photo of the inside, but the lining is leopard and very on trend for fall!
The color options. It comes in three classic colors at Nordstrom and seven more adventurous colors on the Sole Society site.
The size and shape of the bag! The top compartment is perfectly shaped. I can throw my cosmetic bag, hair products and clothes all into it and everything is facing up and stays in place thanks to the shape of the bag. I’ve also folded up my tote purse and used this bag as a carryon on an airplane no problem!

My holiday blazer (that just got marked down to 40% off here) from WAYF features a sharply tailored menswear silhouette and daisy jacquard texture – perfect for the holidays or hell year round. I paired the blazer with an oversized jumpsuit from ASOS. The tailored silhouette of the blazer the look adds some shape to the jumpsuit with just the right amount of glitz and glamour for the holiday season.
