I absolutely love juxtapositions especially when old meets new. In this case, I’m referring to my modern day spring outfit in comparison to the Mission San Francisco Solano behind me founded in 1823 by Spanish-Mexican Monks. It’s remarkable to see that we’ve gone through several eras of fashion and the mission is still standing, as well as several fashion trends. So what era am I? I’m a combination of a few and I consider my style everyday colorful Bohemian Chic. I love combining dresses with a variety of patterns and colors which express my love of fashion and the ability to combine old styles with new trends.

Shooting at this historic landmark was pretty special for two reasons: in 4th grade I selected this mission for my California history fourth grade report. Who else remembers this project? Secondly, my family is in the process of constructing our own mission/hacienda style winery paying homage to how wine was introduced to California via the missions. Stay tuned for more winery updates!

Sonoma Plaza has always captured my heart for it's rural charm, historic significance and eclectic mix of tasting rooms, restaurants, hotels, cafes and galleries. With its winding alleyways, timeworn adobe storefronts, and historic landmarks the square boasts vast stretches of lawn that creates a lush setting for picnics, cultural activities and weekly farmers markets. Definitely one of my favorite local scenes in Sonoma's beautiful wine country! Who else agrees?

Spring Fashion Trend: Color Blocking

One of the hottest fashion trends this spring is color blocking. Pairing bold, solid color pieces together can make a look glamorous and sophisticated. If you’re adventurous enough to wear more than black and white, you're ready to rock this look! I recommend sticking to three colors max to avoid looking like a hot mess.

A few weekends ago I was browsing at H&M and came across this bright blazer and dress. I was immediately smitten with the color combo and thought this would make a perfect outfit for a night out on the town. I wore this Sunday evening for dinner and drinks and found that it was undeniably comfortable to wear and fashionably chic.

Not ready to sport brightly colored pieces in your wardrobe? Incorporate some color blocked accessories into your outfits. They're a great way to add a pop of color without a serious commitment. Shoes, clutches, bracelets and necklaces are all part of this trend and are an affordable way to maximize your look.
