Over the weekend I was doing some holiday shopping at Century City. I walked by the Kate Spade boutique and saw a cute jacket in the window that pulled me into the store.

Saturday evening we were out celebrating my husband’s birthday. We had an amazing dinner at Petit Trois Valley. They make one of the best martinis! The escargot, steak frites, and chocolate soufflé were out of this world. My outfit for the evening consisted of an H&M fluffy sweater, (also love this sweatshirt and sweater) faux leather pants (also love these Levi’s similar to above), and black heels (I covet these ever so classic Manolo’s and Aquazzura’s). After dinner I changed into my platform Vans for post dinner miniature golf. It was the perfect outfit to transition from the restaurant to the golf course.

My friend invited a group of us to her beautiful home in Sun Valley this past weekend. The weather was mid 50’s during the day and 20’s at night. What to pack?? Our hostess informed us to leave our Uggs at home (too LA) and pack flannels, boots, down jackets, and a hat. Shoes are always the hardest for me. I want to bring so many but I’m limited to what I can fit into my carry-on. I have the Hershell duffle and you would be surprised what you can squeeze in there. I ended up packing 3 pairs of boots, 1 pair of sneakers, 1 down vest, 1 down jacket, a peacoat, 3 pairs of jeans, and 3 sweaters. My complete packing list below.
My friend had two action packed days planned for us. First it was dinner Friday evening at The Covey. A beautiful restaurant that serves gourmet food with excellent service. Saturday we had brunch at Cristina’s which is a charming and intimate restaurant (check out the chef Cristina Ceccatelli’s cookbook Cristina’s Tuscan Table). After Cristina’s we walked around Sun Valley resort and stopped into Panache for a little retail therapy. Then it was iceskating at Sun Valley Lodge and cocktails at the hotel lounge. In the evening we had dinner at The Pioneer Saloon. The Saloon is a landmark restaurant that serves up hearty meals in a western style setting. We finished the night at Whisky Jacques for music, dancing, and pool. On Sunday morning we took a hike along the beautiful Big Wood River. Then it was time to catch our flight home. Sun Valley is a special town surrounded by scenic beauty. I can’t wait to go back!
