I usually don't like to share bits of personal information, however this is not only fun but can be beneficial to you if your'e ever in the area.  My boyfriend and I decided to go on a new trip every week to places around the Bay Area.  We've obviously been to pretty much every city here but this time it's a bit different.  We decided to try something new and try out restaurants that offer healthy alternatives rather than something quick.  The main reason for these new dates of ours was to spend time elsewhere for a whole day for some relaxing time...that's it.  But now I've added the extra challenge of finding restaurants and groceries that offer organic food.

For this post, we stopped at Petaluma.  We usually don't get to spend time here because it's usually a pitt stop before Bodega Bay.  So we never actually get to enjoy this charming little town.  We were surprised to find that we had a few choices for organic food.  But we cheated and had lunch at Whole Foods instead...LOL!

After walking around the plaza, we found some restaurants offering organic meals:
Central Market
Petaluma Pie
... of course Whole Foods.

Another place I should mention is G and G Market.  They offer organic food and if you ever go there, you MUST try their duck!  I have their duck for Thanksgiving (and sometimes other holidays) every year.  It is the best duck I've ever had!

I'm sure there are more places here that offer organic food, but those are a few we checked out.  I'll write a thorough review next time I go to either Central Market or Petaluma Pie.  Both places have stellar reviews!  I can't wait to actually eat there...hahaha.

Oh, and it was kind of windy during the later part of the day.  That would explain the slightly messy hair I have.

Ok, that's all for now!  Happy Wednesday :)

Sky Blue Gingham

Sky Blue Gingham_1 Sky Blue Gingham_2 Wearing:
Asos gingham dress
Seychelles peep toe oxford pumps
Vintage bag
Vintage pearl necklace
Vintage bracelet
Chanel lipstick "Desire"
Essie nail polish "Master Plan"

I wore this outfit about 5-6 months ago.  The only difference was my hair;  I wore it with less volume at the top and with a faux-pearl headband from the Dollar Store.  I never had a chance to take a good picture of it and these are the best I could take when I wore it again last week.

This dress is just so lady-like and adorable that I want to wear it at least once a week!  I first saw it on Blaire from Atlantic-Pacific.  At the time I had my eye on the two-piece version of this dress (which was totally cute) and I was thinking of buying it.  But once I saw the dress on Blaire, I realized that it's so much more practical than a cropped top and matching pencil skirt.  And I'm a sucker for vintage inspired dresses.

I wish I had taken better pictures!  The dress looks so much better in person.  Maybe next time when I wear it I'll do a new post.  Better yet, I'll style it differently for a whole new look :)

Talk to you soon!

Hi everyone!  You guys have no idea how much I missed blogging and commenting.  I have been so busy...I barely have time for anything.  So that means I'm going to have to keep this post super short.  I hope you guys are doing good.  And if I haven't commented on your blog...I will!  As soon as I get a break today I'll comment back as soon as I can.

Have a safe & wonderful Monday!
