Warby Parker WishlistI have been wearing glasses since I was in the 5th grade. I have had hot pink ones, light pink ones, wired ones, red ones and currently I am wearing black ones. BUT, when I stumbled across Warby Parker through Carly on The College Prepster Blog, I finally fell in love with buying glasses. You see, glasses are a pain in the butt: I need them to see but they are that thing you really don’t want to spend money on. Warby Parker are affordable, modern and cute. Plus, they will send you a trial frame set that you can try on and then send back when you figured out which one you look your absolute best in. These are the 5 I have picked to try on and even though I would love all of them, my budget is set for one. I’m thinking the Crane frame will be the most versatile and adorable; what do you think?

Oh, sister! A little throwback…

Oh, sister 2

This time last year, we were in Mendocino for Wine and Crab Week. It is honestly one of the best weekends I have ever had. I am so excited that we are making the trip again next weekend with the same friends we went with last year. As we start to prepare for the trip, I went through some of my old photos and wanted to share a few just to get me even more excited. We have the same itinerary as last year which is to wine taste through Napa and Anderson Valley on our way even farther north. Oh, sister 9
Oh, sister 1

The weather started out cold, rainy and wet but Zach and I were able to make the most of it by picking out wineries we had never been to before. Have you ever been to Coppola Winery? It is like a little museum filled with memorabilia from the Coppola family.

Oh, sister 8

Once we made it to Mendocino though, the skies cleared up and we had the most epic time. We rode the Skunk Train, played darts at at a local bar, listened to an amazing, impromptu concert and finished the most annoying puzzle I have ever tried. I literally cannot wait for next Thursday to be here to make it happen all over again.

Oh, sister 3

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Bundling up in my favorite flannel never gets old to me. It is comfortable, warm and always on trend. Here are a few images to inspire you.

J. Crew Headline

J Crew Wishlist
For Christmas I received a gift card to J. Crew and was pretty ecstatic about it. The only problem is I want almost everything and I have an extreme fear of spending a gift card on the wrong item. I also want to get the most bang for my buck so I tend to stick to the factory store (which just so happens to have amazing sales almost everytime I visit the site) and can spend hours trying to pick out which piece I actually want. I have narrowed it down and hopefully will decide by the end of the week:

1. Collection Embellished Raglan Sweatshirt

2. Classic Crewneck Cardigan in Stripe

3. Polka-dot Popover

4. Chambray Tunic

5. Winnie Pant in Stretch Twill

6. 3″ Embroidered Chino Short

7. Stripe Sleeveless Popover Blouse

8. Whittier Purse

9. Suede Lace Up Wedge
