Hiiii!!! Happy almost Halloween! I LOVE Fall and all things pumpkin so have been busy this October😉. Our house is decorated with a lot of beautiful pumpkins (see pic with those beauties in the back of the car) as we took a family trip to Spina Farms Pumpkin Patch in the beginning of October with my twin nieces, who just turned 2!

We’ve made it a family tradition to go every October which I’m loving as it’s so fun to go with little ones as everything is exciting to them! We rode the train, made baby friends (they’re very popular everywhere they go) ooh-ed and ah-ed at the animals…especially the ponies, played in a baby hay maze and checked out all the pumpkins! It was a grand time :)!

October has been crazy busy with work and life in general, but we’re really excited to be hosting our first Halloween Party in our house this weekend (p.s. we bought a house a few months ago!)!!

So what did I wear to the pumpkin patch? A dark green floral dress with bell sleeves and a lace up neckline, paired with dark denim (70’s inspired). I knew I would be running after my nieces and didn’t want to flash everyone when squatting down/bending over to pick one of them up…real things you have to think of when hanging out with little ones.

A dress over pants is a Fall 2016 fashion trend but honestly it’s not so trendy to me as practical. It makes sense and looks great when done correctly. My boho chic look was completed with a black floppy hat and cognac boots that were perfect for walking around the dusty and hay filled pumpkin patch in.

Ok I’m off to do some party prep! What are your plans for this weekend/Halloween??? Hope you get to dress up and/or do something fun and festive!

Pajama Pants vs. Trousers

Pajama Pants: Nordstrom 

Striped Trousers: Zara

Sandals: Tory Burch

Hi all! Hope everyone had a lovely long Labor Day weekend. I wish we had another day off, but work has to get done I suppose😉.

Talking comfy pants tonight. I live in dresses but do like wearing some pants every now and then. The first photo is in our living room and the second is at work. One pair is a pajama pant and one is a trouser pant.

These pajama pants by ‘In Bloom by Jonquil’ are so cute! I got them recently at Nordy’s and am loving them as they’re a pretty print, stretchy, soft and super comfy.

Also, sharing these striped ‘culottes’ trousers I found at Zara, which are super chic! So Parisian no? The best part is that it feels like you’re wearing pajama pants out in public but you’re totally not! The big difference is that wearing them out and about is completely acceptable (unlike pj’s) as they are real pants, even if the extreme comfort makes you second guess if they truly are…;)

xoxo “Stay chic and comfy my friends” Sera🙂

Hey friends hey!!! It’s been way too long. I’ve been crazy busy at work and life has been go go go so haven’t been posting here in a while which makes me sad😦. The good news is I’m back and will be getting back to posting more consistently :)!

How’s your weekend going?! I hope splendidly! We were in Napa for one of my best friend’s weddings a few weeks ago and it was a fabulous weekend! The weather, the wedding, everything was perfect.

The day after the wedding we decided to do some wine tasting (because Napa duh!). We visited two wineries: Domain Carneros and Artesa. Domain is an impressive property and insta-worthy, but the star of the afternoon was definitely Artesa.

Not only is it super modern and beautiful but the wine is really tasty and the views are beautiful as it’s located on a hill, off the beaten path. It’s a super cool winery and I recommend stopping by if you’re planning a Napa trip soon. I liked that it felt like we were going to a museum and not a winery. It’s not your usual winery aesthetically which for me is a plus. I enjoy unique places, what can I say😉.

You always want to be comfy when wine tasting so I chose to wear a summery maxi dress, lace kimono and sandals. Paired with my Bridesmaid grecian goddess inspired hair it made for a very boho chic look. Also, can I have my hair be like all the time?! You know when you get your hair done for a wedding/event/just because and it’s so good? Like you just love everything about it? That’s what I feel for this hairstyle.

In other life happenings it’s K’s birthday tomorrow so I’m taking him to a nice birthday dinner tonight (insert jazz hands emoji here)! Really excited about it as it’s a new restaurant for both of us that we’ve been wanting to try. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!

There’s something so fresh about a white linen dress in the summer. I got this one from Nordstrom last year for our honeymoon to Cambodia and Thailand and still love wearing it as it’s super lightweight and easy for this warm weather.

Also, these Sam & Libby gladiator sandals are so comfy and cute! I got them in black and orange because they’re $30…quite the steal!

Wishing you a wonderful week :)!

Hello hello! This is a late post but as it’s one of my favorite holidays wanted to share my 4th of July looks with you.

What’s better than red, white, blue, stripes, metallic sunnies and a pretty star necklace? All completely festive and appropriate for celebrating America!!!

We had a wonderful long weekend. I baked a cake, hung out with family, bbq-ed, took our twin nieces to a kids parade (their 1st baby parade!), watched fireworks and finished painting our house! All very exciting things🙂.

What’s your favorite holiday???

Just beachy over here! Get it? It’s a pun on ‘just peachy’😉. So we went to Santa Barbara last month for a family vacation and got to stay at a beach house. We ate, drank and explored!

For our little getaway I lived in bohemian looking tops, denim pants and pretty summer dresses. It wasn’t quite warm enough to be in a bikini at the beach while we were there (hence this outfit) but of course I put my feet in the water and we did get to see dolphins and a whale from this exact spot which was very exciting!!

Also, how good have Target’s summer dresses been? I just can’t get enough and need to order this yellow prettiness ASAP!

Happy Monday! Just got back from Vegas for one of my best friend’s Bachelorette party and it was too much fun!! Will do a post on that soon🙂. But for today I’m sharing this look.

Really into this yellow floral print off the shoulder top. Paired with a pretty statement necklace it can be casual or dressed up a bit and bonus it’s perfect for summer.

I wore this outfit to work the other day so opted to keep it casual with cropped denim and fringe sandals.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!
