A friend took me to the cutest coffee shop in Costa Mesa, CA the other day and it was like finding treasure! I had been eying this little spot for a while, driving past it for several years, but I had never stopped. I'm glad I know about it now, because I will be a frequent visitor!

YUM!!Since moving from Oregon in 2002 I've been searching for a quaint little coffee shop like this one!If you live in Orange County or you're passing by - you should definitely stop and visit this OC sweet spot!milk …
I love this time of year; the crisp air, the leaves changing colors, and the fall fashion! I love the hats, the boots, the jackets, and the scarves! Isn't that funny? I look forward to this time of year partly for my wardrobe, but I know that I'm not alone!
Here are a few of my favorite looks that I've been wearing lately that are just perfect for the fall...
even in California!
This dress is darling. It is so feminine and flirty. I love the pleats in the bottom half of the dress, and the leather detailing on the the shoulders. I think this dress would be adorable with some dark tights or knee highs and boots!
I'm absolutely loving this black dress. Flattering, comfortable, and simple! You can dress thisÂ one up or down, and accessorize in several different ways. I loved this dress with my favorite pair of fall boots, and …
Every summer the Del Mar Horse racing season begins, kicking it off with "Opening Day". People come from all over to Del Mar (in San Diego County) to attend this big day of flashy dresses and big hats... oh, and horses! The day is a pretty big deal... actually, really big deal! I started planning my Opening Day outfit probably a month in advance, but I bet you that is nothing to what most of the women put into what they will be wearing. I mean, really, you should see the hats and the rest of the ensemble on some of these women!
This year was my second year attending the Opening Day festivities, I chose a coral dress, gold open toed heels, and a simple black hat with accessories to bring the look together! The accessories were really my favorite part, so I thought I'd share them with you!

Recently I made a very special discovery, Amy Cornwell Jewelry. Amy designs and creates each piece of jewelry with her own hands making every piece unique and meaningful to the one that will be wearing it! ***
I have two very special treasures of my own that Amy made for me that I cherish and wear everyday (well, almost). I have a ring that is so delicate and a necklace that can have charms added to it in the future. For my boyfriendâ€™s birthday I gave him a leather band with a simple â€œk&tâ€ (matching my ring) that he could wear. All of the Amy Cornwell jewelry makes very precious gifts and Iâ€™m so excited for this discovery and am happy to share with all of you!
