LOOK OF THE DAY: RANCHO SANTA FE CASUAL WEEKEND GETAWAY


Happy Monday, Fashionable Friends!

Last weekend, I spent a casual, comfy and relaxing time at some very good family friend's, whom I consider my 2nd parents, home in Rancho Santa Fe before the heavy rains rolled into LA LA Land. It was one of the best, most genuinely happy couple of days I have had in a while and left me feeling truly refreshed and inspired.

They insisted that I do a little photo shoot of my Look of the Day for my fashion blog that they enjoy reading, which is so sweet, and so we did just that! Aren't you excited to see me in a different and pretty background instead of in my apt. against a boring white wall?!? ;)

My getaway was filled with love, support, positivity, smiles, laughs, some of the best conversation, an amazing homemade lunch, my favorite brie cheese and crackers appetizer before a nice, yummy dinner out in a super cute village with my beloved twinkle lights out front, followed by some of my favorite wine and a gorgeous evening fire.

Then, it was off to bed where I slept better than I have in a long, long time and woke up to the most delicious latte made to perfection for me and a homemade breakfast complete with freshly squeezed orange juice made from the oranges we picked off some nearby orange trees earlier that morning.
