This past week my husband and I flew to Cali for my spring break and spent it with family just in time for Easter. It was such a refreshing change to get in some sun and be without a coat! It's amazing what a little vitamin D can do for my mood and motivation! So over the winter blues. I'm so ready for shorts weather, now if only it would start feeling like spring in NYC!

While on our trip we made a bunch of day trips and we traveled back to Carmel by the Sea and Monterey to spend the night on the coast. This is one of my favorite spots, I just love the boutiques and quaint homes leading the way to the beach! I was smitten with all of the galleries and shops throughout the small beach town and this time of year it wasn't crowded so it felt relaxing and was quiet. The different climates in Cali can be so confusing and by evening on the water it would get cool. Before dinner we walked to the beach for the sunset then had some delicious gnocchi at an amazing Italian spot that felt like your grandmother's old home. It was called Casanova's and came highly recommended. If you're ever in the area, make a dinner reservation and enjoy the wine from the region! Monterey has some of the best around and there's plenty of places to stop in for tastings. 

My top has been selling out super fast since it was marked down so I've got a roundup or similar options in the widget below you can click through. I've also found similar bags to my sold out option here and this one is on sale for an additional 25% off! 

Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

🍀 St. Patty’s Casual with a Twist

I am in LOVE with this super comfortable and stylish twist back sweater. It's a sweatshirt material and had sold out recently so I found a similar one that I love just as much and have ordered. It's perfect because you can wear a regular bra with it and it would be great for a cooler beach day to throw on top of your swim top with denim cut offs. I've been looking forward to spring as this weather continues to play tricks on us New Yorkers. 

I'm loving the boyfriend/girlfriend denim trend right now with distressing and there's so many options at different price points. I've been into Express's denim lately because the quality has gotten SO good AND I can order in a tall length so I don't have to worry about everything looking cropped. But hey- I'm so glad that trend is making it's comeback! My denim are actually an older pair that I can't give up. My slides are perfect for spring and sheek enough to dress up a bit without needing a heel. 

Does anyone do anything to celebrate St. Patricks Day? As an Irish girl I do love to celebrate it and have the most non traditional Irish food impulse- I love to have a green bagel that morning for breakfast! I think I've been doing that since my dad used to grab em for me as a kid, since I was never a fan of the corn beef, potatoes, and carrots. Though I LOVE that , I can't handle the smell of  sauerkraut (the smell makes me sick) 

However you celebrate in green, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
