Gingham Vest

Last weekend my best friend A and I went to the mall, officially looking for bathing suits for Maui. I had my mind on another piece of clothing that I wanted to try on to see if I loved it in person as much as I loved it online. I was thinking, no dreaming of a J.Crew vest that I had spied on their website a few days earlier. I usually like to look at my purchases online and consider them for a few days before making the purchase to make sure I will use it and love it.

We tried on a few things (ok, really we just tried on hats, see above photos) at Nordstroms before making our way over to J.Crew. I tried on the vest and promptly fell in love. I seem to love all things navy, and gingham, and this jacket had pockets! It was in short, the golden trifecta!

 

I took it home and am now thinking about naming it. Any suggestions?  Have you ever had a piece of clothing that you just had to have?

Love,

Sunsets, Sparklers and a Night in SF

A week ago Friday, a few of my friends helped me knock off another item on my 101 list. We gathered at my parents house, lit some sparklers and tried to draw out hearts, stars and names. We were more or less successful, but we also had a lot of fun!

We have another box of sparklers left so we will do them again sometime soon! There was lots of laughing during this photo shoot (that may have hindered our ability to take clear photos!), and it was a great evening overall.


 

From there we went up to the city and hit up the Starlight Room at the Drake Hotel. Annie’s friend Dereck is a manager there, and always makes us feel so welcomed. This was my second time there and I swear he is ruining all other clubs for me!

I know I had a busy but awesome weekend! How was everyone’s weekend?

Did you get to do some fun things but also take a break?

Love,

Sandy and Maryah’s Stella and Dot Trunk Show!

The Roomie and I had decorated our tree earlier last week and I think it looks adorable, but most importantly it also makes our little house feel very Christmas-y!

It was perfect because on Saturday the Roomie and I hosted our very own first Stella and Dot Party with Christina Saur Papoulias! It was such a blast to look at some beautiful jewels and have some girl time. Our kitchen has never looked so classy!

Christina made our place look so beautiful! She had so many cute things, it was hard to pick what I was going to order, because I liked everything. But, I’m in love with their poufs! I want one in every color! How cute are these two?!

The Roomie got the Tech Wallet in the Striped at a friend’s Stella and Dot Party last month, and I am super jealous how cute AND organized it is! It holds her phone, wallet and clips her keys!

It was a fantastic opportunity to do some Christmas shopping for my friends and family. I also got to use my cute new glasses that I picked up during Thanksgiving holiday break.

We had a whole lot of fun, and even dressed the pups up in some sparkly jewels! While they were patient for their treats, they were also very wiggly!

I ordered a few things, as did the roomie (including this super cute purse!!). Here is some good news: even if you weren’t able to make it on Saturday, you can still order  some fabulous jewelry!

If you use our link before Deceember 28th, and spend more than 50$ you will get free shipping! How awesome is that?! Normally shipping can be an extra few dollars that I would much rather spend on an extra something for myself! Now, you can do that for sure! I know I have my eye on a few more cute things!

Shop now at Sandy and Maryah’s Stella and Dot Trunk Show!

Happy Shopping ladies! (And gents, there are some great gift ideas there!)
