Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I spent mine up on our rooftop with our neighbors and saw fireworks in the sky, on other people’s roof decks, in the street and across the horizon. Basically 360 degrees of fireworks. Total chaos, but in the best way.

Elie Tahari Francesca skirt, Asos bag, Ann Taylor blouse, Prada heels
Shiny gold, pleated skirt, gold shoes, a silk blouse and floral bag — nope, it doesn’t get much girlier.

It’s a total scarf print fest out there in stores right now, and I’m loving it. With the warm spell lately, it’s been great getting to wear scarves on my shirt instead of around my neck.

I spent yet another weekend back in Wine Country. It just never gets old. This time was Napa instead of Sonoma for a little R&R, and I even took a day off and made a mini vacay out of it. As always, the pool was more packed than I would have guessed in the middle of the day on Friday. My first instinct was to wonder “doesn’t anyone work anymore?”, but then I realized it would be ridiculous to think that way while sitting poolside with a piña colada.

I haven’t shared a tons of wedding-related tidbits (because that would get old), but I do spend a lot of time planning for the Big Day, especially now since it’s coming up so soon.
Looking at florals has been one of my favorite parts of the process. When I was putting together color palettes, I had fun pairing pretty flowers with fashion inspiration in similar hues.
Now if I were actually able to track down these dresses, my my bridal outfit hunt would have been a whole lot faster.

T by Alexander Wang is amazing at making jersey dresses that look sleek but feel like pajamas. And really, what more could you ask for when it comes to clothes? “No pain, no gain”? No fun. Now if only I could take that tack when it comes to shoes.

Are you guys on instagram? Ever since it became available on the Android, I’ve been ‘grammin’ it up.
Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) is following bloggers’ days from coast to coast, and I’m in the West Coast edition giving a visual peek into a pretty typical day for me.
Follow along with hashtag #DayintheLife on Twitter, and our instagram handles @_IFB and @nataliegoel. The full lineup’s all right here!
As for my weekend, it was totally indulgent. I made it up to Wine Country for more wedding-planning activities before heading out to see Cyndi Lauper, The Wallflowers and others at SF’s Black and White Ball. SF temps are always a little too chilly for comfort at outdoor events, but the fantastic food, music and booze more than made up for it. It was my first time attending, but it definitely won’t be my last.

Keeping it simple with brights and blacks. I don’t have many LBDs, but for me, little black jackets are a total wardrobe staple.

What I like about this little beige number: I get my crazy cutouts (and even a zipper!), yet it’s still a sleek, streamlined shirt.

This weekend we had a gluttonous and glorious time in Sonoma doing our wedding wine and cupcake tastings. Unfortunately our cow friends had no such luck. Half the herd came up to greet us, but then it felt like they tried to moo us away when they realized we weren’t going to feed them.
