a midweek break.

jeans {gap}
booties {report}
"t" ring {lou lou}
elephant earrings {gift}

it was a rainy and cold wednesday
so to escape the home we decided to go out to dinner
at one of our favorite restaurants across the street,

i picked up this phillip lim for target sweater 
after all the craze calmed down a couple weeks ago.
it's super silky and stretchy -
a perfect combination if you ask me.
these are also my first pair of jeans from gap, ever.
they fit like a dream and i'm never buying jeans from anywhere else again.
plus, they go perfect with my new report booties.
i've been eyeing these puppies for months 
and when i saw them at nordstrom rack for only $45 i scooped them up
and never looked back. 
i have a feeling booties and skinny jeans will be big staples in my fall wardrobe.
oh, and can we talk about these earrings i got for my birthday?!
it's hard to tell in the picture but they're elephants!

what fall pieces of clothing are you loving right now?

one step closer.

first time using google hangout
and having fun with the props :)

making a bed on our living room floor,
watching movies,
surrounded by fall sented candles
and eating way too much chili on a friday night.

we just got back from the courthouse
where we picked up our marriage license!
only 10 more days.
happy wednesday!

cheers to 28.

someone asked me my age the other day
and i blurted out 26.
"oh, just kidding. i'm 28."
what just happened?
i feel like the last couple of years
have flown by.
wasn't i just in college?
wasn't i just packing up my life and moving to dc?
wasn't i just 10 and 
playing capture the flag in my backyard!?

even though i'm getting older
i don't feel old. 
but 28 sure sounds old. 

to celebrate my birthday a couple of weeks ago
my man made it a two day affair.
my birthday fell on a monday
so on sunday he took me on a wine tour 
(i love virginia wine country)
and then we got to spend the rest of the day 
with our families and had dinner at the diner - of course!
the following day i was off to the spa 
because i took the day off 
and what else do you do but go to the spa and pamper yourself.
then it was off to dinner 
where we had one of the best meals ever.

in my birthday suit
dress {jcrew - old}
necklace {the limited}
blazer {lc for lauren conrad}

at dinner i only took pictures of our wine and dessert
because really, 
those are the only things you need to document in life.
the wedding diet was obviously ignored.

the lioco pinot noir was the best wine i've ever tasted.

we ordered the zuppa inglese to share -
mascarpone custard with limencello -
and then this chocolate treat surprised me
alongside a note from chef and owner, fabio trabacchi.
no big deal.

for an appetizer we shared the
burrata of buffalo mozzarella and oysters
and our main meal consisted of
maine lobster ravioli and the duo of veal ribeye and veal cheek.
you guys, the lobster was unreal. 
like huge chunks of lobster meat on the side
in addition to the lobster that's already stuffed in your ravioli!!
we definitely left full, fat, and happy.
every single course was amazing
and you'll rarely hear me say that 
because i have such high standard 
when it comes to an italian restaurant.

i highly recommend this place.
it aint cheap. but it's worth it.

cheers to 28!

don't be shy
