If you follow me on Instagram (@vivianandviolet) you probably have seen that we are expecting! My husband and I are overjoyed along with feeling super blessed. We can’t wait to meet our little one but for now, I’m just learning how to dress this new changing body (I’m currently 17 weeks!!). My pants don’t fit me anymore so belly bands to the rescue!

One thing that has helped me still feel put together are sundresses and I’m super happy they are always a staple during the summer. Add a little denim, a strappy sandal and you are golden. Plus ivory/white is always a good idea in the hot sun.

I would love to hear from you if you’re a new mom or already one. Tell me all about it! I’m trying to soak it all in. Have a great day!!

It has been a while since I have posted, but I’m excited to be back bringing you some awesome content. To kick off my return I wanted to bring you something summery and super easy to throw on any day of the week. So here is my take on being put together and still super comfortable.

This past weekend I also had the pleasure of spending some time in the Misson in San Francisco. The weather was gorgeous and the Mexican food was to die for. This striped button down was perfect for the sun and the little bit of wind I had to contend with. I love the light and airiness about it. I have been living in these Levi 501

I have been living in these Levi 501 Skinnys since I purchased them a few months back. They are definitely my favorite now that I have broken them in. If you are on the hunt for jeans that have that vintage look but don’t want to pay the ridiculous price some of them are, I would recommend checking these out!

Have a great week!

Cozy, oversized, chunky are all the words I love to describe my favorite sweaters. You can pair them with everything from skinny jeans to over a long maxi cinched at the waist with a belt. They are a main stapled of mine for the cooler months.

You can never go wrong with a vintage sweater such as this Abercrombie (circa 2000) I stole from my hubby or a brand new one. They can easily be transitioned into the warmer months with your cut offs as well. I paired my chunky knit with ripped skinnys and patent leather booties.

Stay warm in your cozy sweaters and safe this holiday season!

There is nothing I love more than a fun, textured boot that gives your typical all denim look an added personality. Free People always brings top notch character out in each piece they have. This bootie is nothing short of amazing. It is unbelievably comfortable and has the cutest snaps that you can leave buttoned up or loose to show a little bit of skin. They would also pair great with cozy socks peeking now that the temps are dropping. You can bet I will be rocking these boots all year from cozy sweaters and denim to short shorts and skirts in the summer time.


I had the pleasure of visiting Jacuzzi Winery last week and I think it is a must if you are ever in Sonoma, CA. The house is a replica of the Jacuzzi Family House in Italy (at least that’s what I was told). It was absolutely stunning!!


I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful doors or the wine.


Open sitting area on the backside of the beautiful mansion.


Room filled with barrels of wine. It would be a beautiful area for a party with close friends and family.


This guy making a special appearance is my brother Dominic. We were having some fun while enjoying the beautiful weather and the view.


Walking out into the field of grapes. I didn’t want to leave. The wine was super tasty. Be sure to put this winery on your list of places to go in wine country, you won’t be disappointed!
