Because it’s that time of the year! Because 20% off goes a long way! Because…why not. Here’s what’s currently on my wish list from the Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family Sale. (Code FRIENDS for 20% off)
Get ready for lots of business casual posts. I am officially a working girl! While my office is technically casual (some people wear jeans), my mom always says, “Dress for success”. So I keep it professional and sophisticated. I love these pants because they are a trouser material, but skinny fit. What’s your favorite business casual look?
It’s Friday and I’m celebrating tonight with this sequin number from Lulus.com. Being on the shy side, I’m not usually one to seek out attention by wearing head to toe sequins. But as a girly girl in NYC, the glamorous side is bound to come out once in a while, whether in the form of sequins or sparkles. If you’re too shy to try a silver sequin dress, try something a little more subtle like champagne sequins, or sparkle just on the bodice, or on a bow. I also love this sequin clutch!
When in wine country we spent our weekend on wine tours, visiting 6 vineyards in all. My favorites were Gemstone Vineyards and Domaine Chandon. We wanted to try a mix of small, exclusive wineries and big, beautiful vineyards with views, and those two vineyards were the ultimate of both. At Gemstone I discovered a new found love for cabernet sauvignon. At Domaine Chandon we were treated like royalty, with “sparkling stars” in our wines. Will definitely be using Gemstone for our future dinner parties, and Domaine Chandon for festive holiday parties!
If you follow along on Instagram you’ve probably had a glimpse into my fleeting adventure this past weekend in Sonoma and Napa Valley (#wineweekend, with love). Josh planned a 48 hour getaway to wine country, which topped the list of the places we’ve always wanted to go. You know when you have high expectations of something, really don’t want to psyche yourself out, and are so nervous you’re just going to be let down? This was definitely not the case. I’ve been begging Josh to move out there with me ever since our red eye back yesterday morning.
We started off our trip arriving at our beautiful hotel MacArthur Place. I honestly could not say enough good things about it. We stepped into our room, which was complete with a fireplace (see below), king sized bed, bath the size of our NYC apartment (practically), and a bottle of one of our new favorite sparkling wines (Domaine Chandon, more on that tomorrow). We started and ended our days at the hotel, with evenings spent tired and tipsy before the fire, and mornings with a complimentary breakfast at the hotels restaurant, which catered to both my and Josh’s differing and picky tastebuds.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing our day of tastings and tours.
