The Bush Berry Place

There is a small valley just north of Healdsburg, CA that I love. With the ever popular Napa and Sonoma Valleys close by, Alexander Valley often can be overlooked. With Mount St. Helena high in the distance, and the Russian river that runs through,  Alexander Valley is the native home to two American tribes: the Wappo and Pomo people. In the now extinct Wappo language, this area is known as Unutsawaholmanoma, or "The bush berry place".

Mixing patterns is so much fun for me. Polka dots and florals might just be my favorite combination. I find that adding a couple of brightly colored accessories, such as shoes and a handbag complete the outfit in a fun and playful way (as opposed to say, black shoes and a black handbag).
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to share with you the surprise that Fermin gave me over the weekend!


  1. I love the back of your top!! And I can't keep my eyes off your shoes!! Love the last picture of yours :D

  2. Are you at a winery here? I loved wine tasting when I lived in the Finger Lakes. I'm sure it's amazing in CA!!

  3. You know, there’s something about the natural daylight in America that makes images look so good. California is full of great light, hence why your movies look so good. In fact, the great natural light was one of the main attractions for the film industry to shift there (plus trade unions were banned at that time in Hollywood, which was an added reason).

    These photographs are vivacious, and you’re wearing jeans, which, as you say, are great. However, I never knew that denim was stretchable material (I have a pair that I’ve worn, regularly, for the last 11 years cuz they're so darn cool). Also, don’t really understand what Laserblasting™ jeans actually mean, not that I care.

  4. ahh so pretty, I want to go there!

  5. wooow, can those shoes be even more amazing? love them :))

  6. Those shoes are HOT! I love the floral the blouse too, very pretty photos!

  7. I haven't heard of this place, but I haven't been in the bay that long, so thanks for the new find.

    I do like the colors in this post and that awesome mustard tunic.

  8. I love your style. Your blog is perfect! I follow you now :) Maybe we can follow each other ;) Let me know,
