Blending in at the Aquarium

“Pack like it’s winter” I told my Los Angeles based travel mates for our week on the Monterey Peninsula. When I lived in New York City and traveled home in the summer I had to remind myself of the fog and cold despite having grown up there.

The weather was a refreshing change and a chance to start wearing a few of the recent fall items from J.Crew. I love this camo sweater and it’s the perfect weight for late summer and into fall. I styled it with a gingham shirt, navy denim and pops of pink with my shoes and sunglasses.

The fog lifted our second day and we had a sunny afternoon at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was fun to see it through my seven year old’s eyes. I vividly remember when it opened when I was in high school and I even had a chance to work there one summer during college. 

For more fall style inspiration stop by The Grove in Los Angeles on August 26, 2017 from 11 am – 2 pm. I’m co-hosting an event with Amy (@howtojcrew). Details to follow.

Tigers and Green Juice

My son and I kicked off our twelve day mother and son road trip with a week in my old stomping grounds, the Monterey Peninsula.  He attended camp with a few of his school friends and it was so fun to bring him back to where I grew up.  A childhood friend showed me Earthbound Farms the first day and got me hooked on her favorite fresh pressed green juice (kale, spinach, parsley, cucumber).  It became my daily afternoon pick me up and I have now found it at home in Los Angeles.  She was happy to oblige and be my photographer in this beautiful setting.

I styled a new favorite tee with my vintage cropped jeans, gingham cardigan, sunglasses, leopard print pouch and my brand new navy and rose gold kicks.
