These are the last photos from our Northern Cali vacation and I am so sad it’s over! There will always be more travels, but I just love spending time with my husband and now he’s back in the grind of his work so I rarely get see him. Most of these photos were taken near our cabin in Manchester, however, the one’s near the beach were just a few miles down the road at the Point Arena Lighthouse. (Where they filmed the movie Forever Young with Mel Gibson!) I am obsessed with the coast and lighthouses, making this easily one of my favorites places. It’s also super green there and reminds me of Ireland so that doesn’t hurt either! We had the cutest little picnic in the forest outside of our cabin with some delicious bubbly. I have had that picnic basket for the past 7 years and I always forget about it so this was actually this first time I’ve used it. Its so cute and nostalgic from my childhood and gives me all the cabin feels.

I love this super cozy look that is still socially acceptable to wear in public. I usually shy away from wearing leggings out if I’m not going for a workout, but these one’s are so insanely comfortable and are great with hugging the hips, making me feel less self conscious. (You also cannot beat the price tag!) I literally wait for them to come out of the wash so I can put them on! I also really love a great Jean and plaid combo and this red plaid shirt is just so classic and goes great with this dark denim shearling collared Jacket! I love this one because its so much warmer than a traditional jean jacket and it has this smooth quilted layer on the inside that keeps you nice and toasty. The collar is super cute too! Looking forward to pairing this one with some denim skinnies for that jean on jean vibe. Wishing everyone an awesome weekend, they go by way too quickly!
