A December Day in Newport Beach



A perfect day, just me and him...hot chocolate and a bite to eat at Zinc Cafe in Corona del Mar, then picking out the perfect tree for our first Newport Beach Christmas.

I love these days with you.

Travel Pretty: Bergdorf Goodman Christmas windows...and a few more!



The last of my Fifth Avenue window picks this year, a hodge podge from up and down the avenue that struck my fancy, including the glittery, colorful Bergdorf Goodman windows...New York did not disappoint this year, as you can see. Until next year, NYC!

Travel Pretty: Saks Fifth Avenue Christmas Windows 2015



And we can't forget Saks Fifth Avenue's display this year, featuring tableaus of holiday opulence in glittery shades of white. My favorite was the three lounging divas, which may or may not remind me of me and my two sisters...in our dreams. And doesn't that ice princess look like Gaga?? Stay tuned for the next post, featuring the last of my favorite Fifth Avenue holiday windows!

Travel Pretty: Tiffany & Co. Christmas Windows 2015



A last minute trip to New York with my sister last week to get into the holiday spirit (it's harder here in Newport Beach with the skies blue and the weather warm)... Stayed at the impeccable as always St. Regis just off Fifth Avenue, perfect for morning and nighttime strolls along the street's colorful Christmas window displays. Tiffany & Co., of course, was my favorite this year...elaborate, yet delicate vignettes featuring white winter wonderlands accented with the signature Tiffany Blue. ...And the pièce de résistance of the entire street itself, that last window, with that ring set against the tree, just inside those pearly gates...a true glimpse of holiday heaven.

Wedding Pretty: A Preppy Winter Dream in New England



It's a rare wedding photo that prompts an actual audible squeal....but this is that. These snaps of Sarah and Kiel's perfect Christmas tree farm wedding are the stuff of every preppy girl's dreams... What a beautiful venue, so simple and event ready! Right now we only have what the couple has shared on their Instagram accounts, and I'm dying for more, but these are enough for now.



Just as lovely as their photos, the bride's beautiful words summing up what every brand new wife feels in those dreamy moments just after her wedding:
We ran from the wedding. Kiel lifted me off my feet and carried me into our wagon. We drove away from the farm, the cheering family, the gorgeous ceremony. We were in complete silence. So many feeling and thoughts. At the exact same moment after 7 minutes of silence we both looked at each other and exclaimed "we're married!". Kiel hit the brakes. We sat on the side of road eyes full of tears and came to the realization of what just happened. Our lives were now one life and everything was more beautiful because of it.
