Here, There and Everywhere

The winter blues are real and I caught a really bad case of them in February. I was cold and tired of being cold. As a result, I neglected writing. All I wanted to do was get out of town, and get out of town I did. In the matter of five weeks I went to New York, Chicago, Austin and Naples, Florida. It was exactly what I needed. Once I got home I was refreshed and ready to hit the ground running. My focus is back 100% and I can’t wait to share amazing new content with you.

For now, I am going to share some travel pictures. Enjoy!

Until next time (I PROMISE it won’t be another two and a half months!)

Ski Trip Packing List

We are going on a ski trip in a few weeks and all I can think about are the clothes!

I am LOVING this Canada Goose jacket. This jacket is on my total wish list. Swoon.

Faux fur is a must in the mountains.


The French Connection vest is from Bloomingdales and the Kenneth Cole coat is from Nordstrom and is ON SALE!

Winter boots are obviously a necessity on a ski trip.

Both of these Sorel boots are, again, on sale!! Find the tan ones here and black ones here.

These adorable Coach rain boots would be so perfect in the snow. You can find them, again ON SALE, at Nordstrom.

How cute is this H&M wool hat?!                        This UGG hat is perfect for the slopes.

Lastly, at the end of a long day in the cold I can’t wait to get in my flannel pajamas. Call me a grandma but I seriously love wearing flannel pajamas. These two are perfect options (I actually have the set from Target and it is SO comfortable.)

Weekend Getaway in Naples, Florida

Is there anything better than a weekend getaway?! It’s just enough time away to recharge your batteries and come back to reality feeling refreshed. This past weekend, my getaway location of choice was Naples, Florida. My husband was on a boys golf trip in Arizona so there was no way I was going to stay in the subzero Minnesota temperatures while he was in the warm sun. So- Naples here I come! Also, not only did I get a weekend away but my sister flew down to meet me from New York, which was amazing.

IMG_3068 I started the trip off with a row to myself!! It was so nice to stretch out my whole 5′ 2″ self 🙂

The first day we were in Florida we had lunch at Barbatella, which was so cute. There is an amazing fountain in the middle of the outdoor patio that we sat by, drank some prosecco and ate Italian food. I highly recommend going to this restaurant. After lunch we went to the beach to enjoy the gorgeous crystal clear blue sky day!

The next day we went to Stage Deli for breakfast. This is our go-to place for breakfast. It is in the Mercato which is a cute outdoor mall with great little shops. So, you eat a great deli breakfast and then go shopping, what could be better!?

IMG_3117It was already our last night in Naples so we got drinks at Caffe Milano to cheers to our last night in paradise and ate dinner at bha! bha! Persian Bistro. GO TO bha! bha! if you are in Naples! It is SO good!!

I am already daydreaming about my next vacation! Can’t wait to share it with you!

Until next time!
