It's one of those items that go really well with everything; great for an added pop of color, dressed up with black skinnies or with jeans and a tank as I did today for my casual business meeting. &nbsp;For some odd reason, I'm not your average blue jeans type gal. Jeans in general just aren't my thing. &nbsp;I've always felt restricted and confined; until I met these AG Jeans. 100% the most comfortable jeans I own {</span><i style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; text-align: center;">which is A LOT!</i><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; text-align: center;">}, side note: also the reason they've been on repeat. They're not too high or low and they have just enough stretch to be comfortable but not lose their shape after a couple wears.

On our way there we drove past this bluff with such a breathtaking view of the ocean that we just had to stop and snap a few shots. It was a perfect 78 degrees and the color and style of this skirt paired with the offset of the neutral crochet top felt just right for the occasion. The skater style skirts and dresses have really become a staple in my wardrobe since they accentuate the waist yet are flattering and feminine. If you guys are ever in Santa Barbara, you absolutely <u>must</u> get drinks or have a bite at our new favorite spot!

I think the last time skorts were popular was probably the early 90's {<i>OG 90210, anyone?</i>}, and I'm not sure why they ever went out of style. Easy enough to move and sit freely but still chic and practical. Everything about the&nbsp;architectural&nbsp;lines, the flattering shape and the overall silhouette...they was such an instant winner, I purchased them in all 3 colors. Skorts are definitely making a comeback this season, and you should probably hop on the bandwagon.

I hadn't been there in years but a friend insisted that we go because she recently found some cute and inexpensive items down there. It's hard to justify spending a ton of money on such trendy items like these shorts, which I've seen sold for six times the price at Planet Blue and LF stores, so I was thrilled when I came across them. The key to shopping and editing your wardrobe is knowing when to splurge on investment items and when not to. Personally, I tend to invest in classic pieces and items I will wear for many years to come. The booties are another inexpensive find at none other than Target! The shorts and booties combo was quite the perfect pairing and I know I'm going to get a ton of use out of both of them this summer.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that you are welcome to purchase a bottle of wine from the Cornell Winery and bring it over with you to enjoy while dining at The Old Place. There are over 50 independent vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains and Cornell Winery is able to offer their customers the emerging vintage wines from&nbsp;local growers and wineries. We chose a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from the Bodegas Gomez de Malibu. The staff was extremely&nbsp;knowledgeable&nbsp;and eager to help us with our selection. They suggested pairing the wine with scrumptious coffee flavored&nbsp;Mexican dark&nbsp;chocolate by Taza. Talk about <em>decadent! </em>We were in heaven!

Usually these salads are a breeze, combining unconventional flavors with elements of fruits and cheeses with various herbs. One of my favorites is the Watermelon, basil and feta salad. &nbsp;Three simple ingredients create a refreshing and fulfilling meal for lunch or dinner. &nbsp;Thanks to the composition of watermelon being 91% water, you'll quickly slim down just in &nbsp;time for bikini season!&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">For the dressing: combine 3/4 cup lemon juice;

I have used the infamous Armani Silk Luminous foundation which is nice but this one trumps it. It is so lightweight and leaves a luxurious feeling on your skin! The formula is water-based and is made to be applied with the fingers. If you apply it with&nbsp;a brush, the brush will absorb the product and you will end up using more unnecessarily. &nbsp;One layer will give a light tinted-moisturizer glow, but if you apply two to three layers you will get a full coverage look. I also love that there is SPF 15 infused as well. I recently learned that some foundations that contain SPF have titanium dioxide which gives you the white-ish mask/bounce back effect when taking pictures that have a flash. &nbsp;The Maestro foundation doesn't have titanium dioxide in the SPF, so thankfully, you can wave goodbye to that pale-faced Twilight look that used to ruin your pictures. &nbsp;I also really loved the <a href="http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/giorgio-armani-maestro-eraser-dark-circle-concealer/3379899" target="_blank">Maestro Concealer</a>. &nbsp;I used to be a <a href="http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/cle-de-peau-beaute-concealer/3076452" target="_blank">Clea De Peau</a>&nbsp;{the infamous "best" concealer in the world} devotee but I am finding the thick consistency of their formula accumulates in any fine lines around my eyes...not cute! I know the price of these products is a little steep but I suggest going to your local Nordstrom's and asking for a sample of the foundation and concealer and see if it's a right fit for you. It's so important to create the perfect canvas to a flawless face.</span></div>http://www.vogueandvino.com/2013/04/create-your-canvas.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (vogue + vino)2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2012822538755369283.post-8357357571284162938Thu, 25 Apr 2013 18:27:00 +00002013-04-25T11:31:47.306-07:00OutfitsIn the Trenches<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bEkzaY0k5-4/UXjc12PpM-I/AAAAAAAAEUQ/xqjLRPCG3-0/s1600/13122.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bEkzaY0k5-4/UXjc12PpM-I/AAAAAAAAEUQ/xqjLRPCG3-0/s1600/13122.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">{Walter Baker <a href="http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446578563&amp;CAWELAID=1894589790&amp;cagpspn=pla&amp;site_refer=GGLPRADS001" target="_blank">Trench</a>&nbsp;{sale!!}; ALC Blouse; Zara <a href="http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/us/en/zara-nam-S2013/358006/1110512/PRINTED+MINI+SKIRT+WITH+FRILL" target="_blank">Skirt</a>; Zara <a href="http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/us/en/zara-nam-S2013/358009/1197475/SANDAL+WITH+BUCKLE" target="_blank">Sandals</a>; Topshop <a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogNavigationSearchResultCmd?catalogId=33060&amp;storeId=13052&amp;langId=-1&amp;viewAllFlag=false&amp;sort_field=Relevance&amp;categoryId=208714&amp;parent_categoryId=208582&amp;beginIndex=1&amp;pageSize=20#catalogId=33060&amp;storeId=13052&amp;langId=-1&amp;viewAllFlag=false&amp;sort_field=Relevance&amp;categoryId=208714&amp;parent_categoryId=208582&amp;beginIndex=1&amp;pageSize=200&amp;refinements=category~[210064|208714]&amp;noOfRefinements=1" target="_blank">Necklace</a>; Vintage bracelets; Club Monaco Clutch (old, similar <a href="http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446548351&amp;R=819935010509&amp;P_name=CLARE+VIVIER&amp;sid=13E4085ED719&amp;Ntt=claire+vivier&amp;N=0&amp;FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374306418050&amp;bmUID=jV2aR4t" target="_blank">here</a>}</td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;">With the sporadic rain and fog these past few weeks, this trench has literally saved me. &nbsp;I loved the versatility of taking something so staple like a trench in its classic&nbsp;neutral&nbsp;khaki&nbsp;and adding the edge of the black leather sleeves. &nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">Granted, So.
