This World is a Jungle of Fashion

What do you all look for in a fashion staple to last you through the different seasons ? Each new season, I always try to find fun, key pieces that can go with anything. As I was trying to pick out what new pieces for Spring, I realized I wanted the key pieces I got to last me though Summer. For being a Cali girl my Spring and Summer fashion pieces pretty much go hand and hand. So when I got gifted this amazing, beautiful monogrammed clutch from Gigi New York‘s Spring line in the mail, I knew I found my key clutch/accessory for Spring and Summer.

The Azure All in One Bag is not only gorgeous, stunning color ( my new favorite), but it also is high quality, fits a lot and is versatile for any event you may have coming up from a baseball game to a charity event to a fun brunch day with friends. Versatility is always so important for me when it comes to a purse because I need it to transition not only from work to fun, but from sporting events to fashion shows as well. When I don’t have to always change my purse, I am sold. I am a girl who loves sports and fashion so when a purse fits those to sides of me, I fall head over heels. The Azure All in One Bag by Gigi New York fits all of those things I just mentioned, which is probably why I have been seen with it a lot already.

What I think you all will love to about it is that you can pair it with a casual on the go look to the ball park or for a night out on the town. When a clutch speaks to so many different facets, it is a trend that will last throughout multiple seasons, yay to the Azure Bag 🙂

Oh did I mention I am a sucker for anything monogrammed, thanks again for that added touch Gigi New York !

I have simply fallen in love with this clutch and will be rocking it for a very long time. It will be one that is on trend with its color, texture, monogram detail and tassels for years to come, it is classic ! I know you will all fall in love with it too and all the many colors it comes in. Don’t forget to go pick up an Azure All in One Bag for yourself in all the colors they have to offer, you won’t regret it 🙂

Redefining Relaxation Through a Staycation at Farmer’s Daughter Hotel

A tradition I have started in the last year was one of having a staycation as often as I can. It was something that started with wanting to be near work one week when I had a lot going on. A light bulb went off, “why don’t I have a staycation every so often?” The tradition of staycations were born right then and there for me.

So the time came again this past February for me to have another staycation and exploring adventure in my amazing city. Where this next staycation was going to be was not hard, Farmer’s Daughter Hotel and the surrounding area that I had been wanting to stay in for awhile. It’s a hotel I passed a bunch of times and an area I have been to before and have just fallen in love with it all. An added bonus too is one of my favorite outdoor shopping spots, The Grove, is a quick walk from the hotel along with Coffee Commissary within 5 minutes or so, which I was so excited to finally try).

The reservation was made and my staycation was here, yay ! Luckily the bad weather subsided long enough for me to have an amazing staycation. I checked in to Farmer’s Daughter Hotel, which has one of the cutest lobbies and my room wasn’t ready, but it was perfect because I had the perfect chance to walk on over to The Grove for a shopping adventure before dinner.

Where to start now at The Grove ? Topshop caught my eye immediately I was overwhelmed with excitement on all the great pieces, but the ones I ended up with was this amazing leather floral pleated skirt and fun, fuzzy socks for Valentine’s Day that I now where all the time. Now that I have added some amazing new pieces to my wardrobe, it is time for a refreshing beverage and a tasty snack. Whenever I am at the Grove my go to is Nordstrom Cafe. I ordered an iced tea (my obsession) with a smoked salmon platter (always my go to) and I was able to enjoy it all outside in the cute court yard surrounding the cafe.

My room was ready and it was a nice surprise because they upgraded me to the main building to makeup for me waiting, which highlighted their amazing customer service even more. Walking into the room, I got a warm, cozy feeling and I knew I was in a space of pure relaxation, which was needed with the amazing king bed and breakfast nook bench all with fantastic accents everywhere. I officially need a king bed in my life because I was spoiled by this one, absolutely loved.

Being able to plop down on the amazing bed with my magazaine and book before dinner at Tart (the restaturant connected directly to the hotel). Dinner was here my outfit was fun and fabulous and my book & notebook were in hand. With the essentials in tow, I walked over and got a gorgeous seat on their deck near the fireplace, simply fantastic (I highly recommend making a reservation like I did to guarantee a gorgeous spot, which is anywhere at this amazing place). I ordered jasmine green tea, brussel sprouts with a fried egg and fried pickles as an appetizer (a suggestion from Bread and Butter PR) and for the main course, one of the best cheeseburger (mmm, delicious).

Let me tell you this meal was stupendous ! I can’t forget the delicious, decadent dessert, which they delivered to my room after I got back up (they seriously spoiled me). I ordered italian sugar donuts with a delicious filling, one of the bests. Eating the dessert at my nook in my room was the perfect end to a perfect day and night.

It was morning and after being well rested and re-energized, I lounged and wrote in my room before heading out. I ended the trip with a stop at Coffee Commissary for breakfast, which is one of my new favorites.

To say I will be back is an understatement, I will be back in ten fold to each spot especially because I have to be sure to ride around on the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel adorable bikes 🙂 .
