On the Docks

 photo IMG_7468_zpsf24b9033.jpg

Right around the corner of Fisherman’s Wharf, the fam and decided to walk the docks and enjoy the view. From our little local we could hear the sounds of the sea lions from one direction and the hustle and bustle of tourists entering and exiting the small shops along the dock from the other. From afar we could catch a pretty good view of Alcatraz and could smell a hint of clam chowder in the air. Remy was having a grand old time pushing her stroller and running after the pigeons so the fella and I took advantage and snaped some outfit pics. I gotta say, I’m a sucker for a good back drop;)

Wardrobe Remix Vol.10

It was just the other day that I was talking about how my denim vest has become a great go-to since its purchase a couple months ago. I’m thinking of getting a dark wash one for Fall! In this installment of the Wardrobe Remix we’re going to be taking a stroll down memory lane with the summer workhorse, the denim vest!

East Valley Local Food Guide

 photo phx_zpsc1834731.jpg

As a final farewell to the place I’ve grown to call home, I thought today I would share some of my favorite eateries in the East Valley, because y’all know I’m a self-proclaimed foodie. Although I’m obviously a little biased to the locale since this is the side of the valley I’ve called my ‘hood, I went ahead and also shared some restaurants based in Phoenix.

Of course this is just a small slice of the amazing restaurants in the East Valley (and again, some gems in Phoenix), but hopefully it will be helpful if you’re ever in the area. I would love to hear some of your favorite spots from both the East and West valleys! Please feel free to share some of your most loved spots in the comments below for others to use as a great reference!

Golden Gate

photo IMG_7401_zps5c091ce5.jpg

So it’s rather obvious where these photos were taken, the Golden Gate Bridge! This was by far not only one of my favorite spots that we got to visit during our time in San Francisco but it was also one of my favorite days as a tourist. My MIL had offered to stay with Remy so the boy and I took full advantage and crossed many tourists’ spots off our list. It was a mighty fine day, my friends. Mighty fine.

For the day sans baby, I went with white denim, some major layering action with the addition of the my trusty chambray and a little faux leather, and I topped off the look with an urban twist – booties, cross-body bag, a fedora and some mirrored sunnies. I totally felt cooler than I looked, that’s for damn sure;)
