Dillon Beach

This Thanksgiving we discovered a wonderful place called Dillon Beach.  My family came to California to be with us for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We had originally planned to stay in Healdsburg, but we had to change our plans last minute due to a rental house snafu.  It wound up being a blessing in disguise, as we found a wonderful house to settle into for the long weekend in this tiny coastal town on a beautiful beach!  

These pictures are taken literally in the backyard of the house we stayed in.  The house itself had floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the coastline and beach. It was pretty spectacular. There is something very peaceful about being on the ocean in the winter months.  It really was a perfect setting to spend time together as a family and really relax for a few days.

I have been doing a lot of layering recently.  I have also opted for more leggings with tunic like tops or dresses.  Sometimes it really is all about comfort.  I know I have said this before, but I am limiting my maternity specific clothing purchases.  For this outfit, the only maternity item is the leggings, that I bought from the Gap on sale.  

Also, I have to take a moment to rave a little bit about this cape/scarf from Madewell.  I bought this particular buffalo check one last winter and wore it all of the time!  I pulled it out for the first time this year a few weeks ago, and was reminded of how perfect it is.  It is a great wrap for cool weather and the perfect warm scarf under a coat for colder weather.  They don't have the buffalo check this year, but they do have a similar windowpane check option Here and Here. And they also have these super cute options Here and my personal favorite Here. The best part is they are all currently an additional 25% off.  Honestly I might have to buy another one!
