Stripes are so much fun! I have always loved stripes, but after seeing them splashed all over the spring 2017 runways, I becameĀ more enamored with the pattern than ever before.

This black and white striped dress from SheIn is perfect for rocking the horizontal stripes trend right now, and into next year. The fabric is lightweight, and easy to care for. So for cold days, it can be warmed up with booties, a scarf, and a jacket. I love how this dress also looks topped off with a moto jacket; or any leather jacket!

If you want to wear a striped dress casually, this particular dress can easily be paired with sneakers or slip-on sneakers for a casual, street style look. You can top the look off with a bucket bag or backpack. Voila! Instant street cred šŸ˜‰

When the warm spring months hit, this striped dress from SheIn will look amazing with block heel slides and a statement necklace. I love owning pieces which are fun to style, and easily transition between seasons.

Since stripes are a hot trend right now, you can’t wrong with a striped dress to take you from now into next year! See below for all my favorite striped dresses from SheIn; all under $50! Love that!

Do you have a fall go-to outfit? This is my current, fall go-to outfit. When I want to be cozy and comfortable, I reach for this pair of jeans, this long-sleeve tee, these cozy booties, and this blanket scarf in order to stay warm, comfortable, and to appear put together.

These photos were taken during a recent vacation to the Lake Tahoe area. I wore this outfit on Veteran’s Day. We took the kids into Nevada to Virginia City in order to visit the Silver Mine. You can read about fun things to do during the off-season in Lake Tahoe in my travel guide online here.

Virginia City was really fun on Veteran’s Day. They had a parade, and the town was decked out with patriotic decorations. There were a lot of people in town for the parade and events, so it was crowded with a festive vibe. It was so much fun!

After the parade, we took the kids to DanCin Crystal Company where they enjoyed panning for crystals that had been mined throughout Nevada. The owner of the store was extremely knowledgeable and told us about the crystals, as well as several fossils she had on display, and in stock. The kids loved it, and I learned quite a bit too!

My kids loved visiting the Silver Mine last time we were in Virginia City, so after panning for crystals, we took them over to the Ponderosa Mine Tour. This is a great silver mine tour which is interesting, entertaining, and educational. Love that!

Of course we enjoyed pizza for lunch, and ended the day with ice cream cones. If you are looking for a fun day trip, definitely head over to Virginia City in Nevada. You will enjoy it!

The San Francisco Bay Area has been unusually warm this month. So, in order to cool off, and feel some fall weather, we headed up to Truckee for Veteran’s Day Weekend.

If you are not familiar with the Lake Tahoe area, Truckee is a town right off highway 80 in California. We love Truckee because we can avoid the crowds around the lake during the summer months, and we can easily get to the ski resort of our choice during the winter months. During the off-season, which is right now, we can hop on highway 80 and explore the area.

I purchased this chevron, faux fur jacket about a month ago and have been itching to wear it. The cool morning temperatures, and evening temperatures in the Lake Tahoe area this past weekend were perfect for the jacket since they hovered in the 30’s and 40’s. During the middle of the day, when temperatures reached the high 60’s, I just wore the tee shirt.

This chevron faux fur jacket is so much fun to wear! It has a 1970s vibe which is why I paired it with flare jeans. Although it was a little too “city” for the Tahoe area, where people wear ski jackets and casual outerwear, it was fun to wear anyway. No-one gave me side-eye, so I think it was OK. haha

I am looking forward to wearing it as temperatures drop in the Bay Area at the end of the fall season, and into the winter season.
