    your wine tasting outfit looks beautiful friend!! And I’m totally jealous that you can use those cute headbands to keep your hair back. I have an odd shaped head and they always slide out.

    Speaking of wine tasting, I’m going to be back in Santa Maria in September for the crushing at my in-laws vineyard, would love to have you down for a bbq and glass of wine.

    For some reason, this week’s outfits totally speak to me! And I won’t judge the cardigan usage, but with rather envy it. Where I’m living, you don’t even LOOk at cardigans until October. Jeans? Yeah, those are a four letter word..and I miss them. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Every week I try to pick out an outfit as my favorite, but they are all so darn cute! I really love the navy and white striped cardigan outfit…so cute and casual. And I’ve been wearing A LOT of ponytails with headbands too. I need to get some embellished ones to jazz it up a bit. :)

I love your chic, laid back everyday style and your inspiration for sharing it with others. Love that last outfit… the blouse and necklace really stood out for me. Thanks providing this great opportunity for a link up to meet other great fashion bloggers.
