if we had to choose a favorite restaurant -or at least one that has been tied to some of our favorite memories together as a couple, it would be vintana wine + dine in escondido. it was one of the first restaurants we went to on a double date night with my parents and it’s also the site of at least two birthday celebrations. it’s one of those places that is a guaranteed great night -delicious cocktails, great ambiance, complimentary popovers, and don’t even get me started on their brussels sprouts. so naturally when S and i wanted to commemorate the first anniversary of our engagement (technically on the 23rd), vintana was the obvious choice.
i opted to wear another of my new pieces from jenni kayne, a new-to-me designer that specializes in classic high-quality minimalist pieces. you may remember this pattern from the dress i wore on easter, my step-mom also included this cute little tie-front cami in the gift box she sent my way. normally i don’t gravitate toward the camisole silhouette, i loved the fact that this one a) had polka dots (duh) and b) had the tie-front detail. the latter added an element of playfulness that i was immediately attracted to. i opted to pair it with my wide-leg trousers and simple black pumps. the weather was warm enough to forgot a jacket, but i brought one along just in case. if you feel like you’ve been seeing this jean jacket a lot lately, you’re right. i can’t stop wearing it! i can’t help but feel it adds a bit of polish to every outfit -even one on the dressier side like this one.
