Leopard, Lace X Old Fisherman’s Wharf

June 8, 2016







Banana Republic dress, Stuart Weitzman Shoes, Louis Vuitton bag, Cabi belt

Dress: Banana Republic (on sale with code BRDAD) | Bag: Louis Vuitton-vintage | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Belt: Cabi-vintage | Foundation: YSL | BeccaXJaclyn Hill Face palette | Lips: Buxom

Fisherman’s Wharf is one of my favorite spots in Monterey. I did another post there a few months ago.  It has so many childhood memories for me.  I loved to feed the sea lions that hung out there when I was little.   Most of the spots I loved as a kid are long gone but I do still like to go down there and people watch on occasion!

This dress is so pretty in person.  Banana Republic has been off my radar for awhile now but lately every dress I see and want is from BR.  I love the little peek-a-boo vibe at the bottom.  It gives the feel of a mini dress but still feels classy.  I had to have this leopard Louis Vuitton bag a few years back when it first came out!  I was obsessed with it.  I paired it with my fave classic Stuart Weitzman Minx wedges and a cabi belt with a similar but smaller leopard print.

Thanks for stopping by!
