I've been noticing a trend lately...super, cute things from American Apparel! I mean, what?! I haven't been to a store in quite a while, but after noticing some nice stuff that my coworkers were sporting, I decided to peruse the website. Here's what I found...

patent leather clutch, LOVE

monogram ring, $18...MUST have this.

amazing color, great size, AND outside pocket so phone/keys are easily accessible

this looks super comfy AND is reversible

a la Mode

Denim jackets are ALWAYS in style, have ALWAYS been stylish, and ones with fur collars are ALWAYS a this one that I came across at another new, favorite website ( And it's ONLY $100...and they give you 20% off your first purchase for creating a profile... LOVE!

not to are in my shopping cart, cute, denim and fur love of my life. 
I'm thinking I'll wear a cashmere cable-knit sweater paired with brightly colored JCrew "minnie" pants...pull on some leather boots and add sunglasses for perfect, lunch-date attire. Who's hungry?

Thursday Travels

Spontaneous, all-day adventures/travels with great people makes for a profoundly superb experience to share. Let the day take you where it may, and create your own adventure!

We started out on a nature hike in sandborn/skyline county park. This turned into..."hey, let's go to my uncle's cabin!" Which lead us to Boulder Creek, CA where we had a beer with the locals at Boulder Creek Brewery and ate fried pickles (which I HIGHLY recommend trying).

 Next, the idea of..."let's go to Santa Cruz!" and off we were. Nothing could stop us, not even rain...I even think it made things a bit more romantic. Through winding, 2-lane mountain roads we talked, listened to music and pondered how awesome the day had been/was going to be.

Finally, ocean views, fish n'chips, corn chowder, surf boards and taffy made long-lasting impressions that I will NEVER forget. WHAT a day?!

This is where we ended up...Santa Cruz. AMAZING even if it's a rainy, cold evening.  WOW. Thanks Chris for taking such a beautiful picture!

I needed these things! My Alexandra Cassaniti carry-all backpack and old-school 35 mm camera, but sadly, left them at home :(

again, our final destination. 

fish n' chips on the pier, YUM

GOOD beer at local brewery in boulder creek (santa cruz mountains)

the locals. 

seriously, boulder creek??...i WANT TO LIVE HERE!

the cabin we visited..greeted by majestic stone sculptures protecting the gorgeous stream and trees behind us. 

the beginning of our journey...making our way down the path less traveled in the redwood forrest.

seriously? AMAZING!

there's really nothing better than logs with moss, streams, redwood trees, ferns and friends.
