Extremely sad to say goodbye to October but super excited to celebrate my mama for a whole week. She turned 75 next Saturday and we’re heading out on a jet plane then a family dinner on her birthday. Some of you may know every 5 years we take a trip for her milestone birthdays. 


1. Headed to Paradise with Mama
Here we are 5 years ago in Naples.
Any guesses where this year?

2. What I Wore on Our Trip

3. Aventura!

I intended to take this darling Paragon Sweater from Aventura along but it didn’t arrive in time. That didn’t stop my from putting on the cute softness asap when I got home. I love it! So pretty to dress up or down like I did here with the joggers and sneaks.

Just love that Aventura is a long loved family owned business and committed to sustainability.
