Nate and I spent last weekend in Carmel to unwind, check out some local shops, did a little wine tasting, dine at some of our favorite restaurants when he first moved out here from New York and we even tried to take a walk on the beach. Yeah, the latter was bad idea. It was very cold! Even though the sun was gorgeously shining, the temperature was nowhere near warm and I can feel the chilly breeze furiously blowing against my leggings. Luckily I was layered on top with a thermal tee, a chambray top and knit wool sweater that kept me pretty cozy for most of the day…

This weekend we’ll be staying in Vegas for business but I’m very excited to check out the shops and eat my heart out at all of our favorite restaurants. We typically like to stay on the strip but if you’re ever going on a busy weekend and want to stay in Vegas on a budget, two of my favorite off the strip hotels (but very close by) are the Orleans Casino Hotel and the Platinum Hotel & Suites which is a gorgeous boutique hotel with suites from 950 to 2,200 sq feet for a fraction of the price compared to most hotels on the strip.

I hope whatever you decide to do this weekend, you’re spending it with someone you love. Have a warm and wonderful long weekend!

The best thing about cleaning out your closet is:

1) the new found space (for your new additions)

2) money in forgotten pockets, and

3) something that was purchased years ago but happened to be trendy right now

This silky Bebe floral skirt was probably one of my all time favorite in 2010. It’s high-waisted (anyone who knows me know I love high-waisted anything), it’s floral (which I’m obsessed with), it has ruffles, drapes, pockets but best of all…it doesn’t “look” outdated one bit….I love to shop and buy new things but what’s important to me is being able to wear something more then once or twice, unique pieces that will last a long time.
