My New Lunch Spot

momlikethat CIAatCopia Pork Ramen.jpg

If you want to scape from the crowd at Oxbow Market, walk over to CIA at Copia and visit the Food Hall right in the main lobby. Choose from wood-fired pizzas, fresh salads, gourmet cheeses, dim sum, and ramen. You can also purchase seasonal produce grown on the CIA’s Napa Valley farms and gardens. Currently I’m obsessed with their pork ramen. Seriously it’s the best in town! Go try it yourself.

Blazer And Feminine Dress

I’ve been all over this blazer and feminine dress look lately and so happy it is back in a big way for fall. It’s the perfect mix of classic and chic.

Long weekends always sneak up on me specially after back to school and I always forget to make plans ahead of time. We'll be relaxing at home all weekend but in my mind we'll be at our imaginary lake house living up the last of summer. Feel free to bring wine and meet us there or mi casa.

Kimonos are the perfect piece of outerwear for the warmer months. They’re lightweight and come in every combination of material, color, and pattern, which makes them perfect for any occasion. This whole outfit would be perfect for Bottlerock this weekend. Hope to see some of you out there!

One of my favorite brands to wear for spring is Anthropologie, hands down. I like the brand throughout the year as well, but their spring line is always what my dreams are made of. I found this beautiful embroidered dress a few weeks ago at my local store and immediately knew it was for me. I love when I find a piece like this. I don't see it online, but found similar options below. Happy Monday!

Acacia House

To celebrate my husband's birthday, we went to Acacia House by Chris Cosentino located inside Las Alcobas Hotel. The food was excellent and their one-of-a-kind- margarita was exceptional! t was nice to be able to relax and catch up with friends after two stressful weeks from the Napa fires. Acacia House had a special menu item called the Napa Valley Spirit Menu whereby $10 was donated to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund in support of the victims of the fire. The food on that special was delicious and for a great cause. Cheers to great company and happiest birthday to mi amor!
