Lanvin and Denim


I was recently gifted a few boxes of gorgeous clothing from a woman with a very discerning taste and among the items was this precious Lanvin jacket you see above — the balloon sleeves and decorative broach are to-die-for. It came with a matching pencil skirt but I wore it as a shirt in the images above to dress it down. I paired my new fabulous jacket with skinny denim, and my recent splurge --- the 
I R O boots you see above. 

I loved rocking this look, I felt very chic and grownup, it could have been the Lanvin, it could have been the I R O, hell it could have been me feeling my hairstyle at the moment, either way, this is most definitely an outfit repeater.

This is my second time staying at the lovely Sandman hotel in Santa Rosa. The first time around it was all sunshine and hanging at the pool sipping beverages in the midst of Summer. This time we had much less time to enjoy the pool but since the temperature had dropped, we didn't miss it too much. We were in town for the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival and were so thankful to have a place to stay close to the show! Besides the pool, some of my favorite attributes of the hotel are the hip ambiance, decor, the staff -- who are always so helpful-- and the waffles at breakfast. 

A continental breakfast is included in your stay with all sorts of goodies like fresh fruit, bagels, and cereals but the waffles are the real MVP in my opinion. This trip I decided to make it a breakfast-in-bed kind of morning, I made my waffle and brought it back to our room to enjoy in bed with a spread of magazines making it the perfect lazy Sunday start. Our room came equipt with the cutest little nook next to our sun-filled room, so I decided to catch up on a library book since I was on "holiday."

If you are heading to wine country this Fall for Harvest I'd highly recommend a stay at The Sandman -- the prices are reasonable, the location is only one hour from San Francisco, and the cinnamon flax waffles are divine. Trust me, you'll want to eat one in the dining hall, and one to go for your own luxe breakfast-in-bed experience. 

Thanks to The Sandman for sponsoring this post, and Kim + Ono for the kimono samples!
