Headed home to Arizona today with the kids. I haven’t been back in a couple month’s. Looking forward to seeing my family and friends. The girls are really excited to play with cousins for a few days. I love that California offers the entire week leading up to Thanksgiving off from school! Guess who took these pictures for me? My 9 year old, Poppy! We pulled off to the side of road, I handed her my Canon, she snapped a few and this was the result.  I’m pretty impressed with how turned out! Looks like I found my intern:).  Also the tops shown here are from Chicwish. Completely affordable fashion that’s on trend and fit’s really well. Thanks Chicwish!

  • St. Regis room service..delicious! The Mediterranean Omelet and banana pancakes were out of the this world!

Bundled in Plaid + Red Lips

I can’t believe it’s the week of Thanksgiving! I’m so excited to have family in town. Yesterday was the prettiest day in New York. If only we can have the sun shining on Thanksgiving day when we go to the Macy’s day parade. I’m crossing my fingers. I plan on wearing this PLAID JACKET on Thursday. It’s so warm and I’m loving the colors of it. While I was Thanksgiving shopping I spent an hour at the MAC counter searching for the perfect red lip color. I finally found one that is the perfect shade of red and it  lasts all day, It’s called –ALL FIRED UP

chicwish sweater

V -Black + White Sweater / Denim / UGGS / Beanie / Sunglasses / MAC lips, all fired up

This sweater looks exactly like the Rag and Bone sweater I have wanted all season! I’m so glad I found it for 1/4 of the price. It’s so comfy and the perfect sweater to throw on over anything. I wore my all time favorite UGGS all weekend. I LOVE the one button “Bailey Style” UGGS. They are the easiest to slip on and I love folding over the top a bit. They are so warm. I’ll live in them all winter.
