Weekend Update

1. For those looking for a great simple slide sandal for summer – I’d like to suggest these Bottega Venetas.

Bottega Veneta, $620 (also here on Matches if your size is sold out on NAP, plus no tax)

These have been my go to slumming around sandals since the weather got warmer, and they’re perfect for the whole slides trend going on right now, without being so trendy that they’ll look out of date. I love the clean lines, and the leather is soft but sturdy.

1. A very pretty, Anthropologie-ish dress I’ve been eyeing from ASTR. If only I had a waist! I’m a huge sucker for these sorts of peasanty type dresses you can just slip over your head in the summer, but…

The Poetry Inn – Napa, CA

This past week my husband and I decided to take a little break through the weekend. Originally this was a trip we were supposed to take with our little one (because I’ve become one of this annoying parents who…
