Stanford University is the backdrop of this lovely day. It was a perfect California winter day, sunny and warm in the high 60s. W had a day off to celebrate MLK’s life (and he is a reason why we live in a society where many different cultures get along and everyone has the same rights).
We picked up some WOW-meee-zing French macarons from Chantal Guillon, located in downtown Palo Alto, to indulge as an afternoon snack, as we soaked up some Vitamin D from the sun.
I am in love with red lately, especially red lace. This new find from ModCloth, which I received last week, made a perfect outfit for my casual romantic date with Chantal Guillon. It just screams Valentine.
i love this outfit. The red top is just too beautiful. You know how to pull it off!
Love Stanford campus. I wish I had more time to roam around the last time I was there…erhh, that was 13 years ago.
Thanks! This red top is one of my greatest find. I didn’t hesitate to snag it. I can’t wait to wear it again for Valentine’s.
Stanford is beautiful. I was glad this day I went was not crowded with people to get a quiet moment of two with the place and my husband and some macarons 🙂
Woowww, you are looking really great, very beautiful and … sweet, sweeter than the sweet macarons 😉
Thanks, Romano! The last part made me burst in laughter 🙂
Lovely and yet sad; I am not sure why? The world is not our own; one exist and yet don’t truly ever fit in. Still a lovely day!
When one can’t find a place to fit in, one creates one’s own place and stands up for it. Conformity is overrated.
Super cute outfit! And although I’m not a huge fan of macrons, your photos make me want them!
These are really good macarons, one of the best from my area. But why not like them?
Thank you so much such so a beautiful pictures I really enjoy it so much
No they’re my macarons! You temptress you have no idea how difficult it is to find nice macarons where I am right now. But visually I’m full, lovely pictures! Physically i need a macaron!
I am sorry, Morgan. Wish I could share a macaron with you but I ate them all 😦 Hope you will get time to find some over the weekend 🙂
Actually I know a few places, but they are at 5 star hotels. It would be much better to pop down a local shop and try several brands ^^
What an adorable date to have…everything about it was divine…kudos to you for the creativity.
Thanks! After I start blogging, I realize how important every moment of life is. Working on to collect more beautiful moments in life by capturing it. Date is one of them 🙂
Wow, looked like a spread from a fashion magazine. Love Stanford. Did you get some Pluto’s before the macarons?
Is that your bike? That is a classic Love the aquamarine rims.
Aww…that’s very sweet of you to say. Word of encouragement is the greatest motivation.
I didn’t go to Pluto’s this time. I love Pluto’s, as it was one of the very first date places I went with my husband (boyfriend at that time). Sweet memories 🙂
After I bought my road bike, I couldn’t afford to get a cruiser. This bike happened to be there and I “borrowed” (hop on and off) it for the shot. I hope the owner does not find out 🙂
I love Modcloth! You wear red beautifully! And what a gorgeous shot of the macarons in a box…nice work!
Hi Lesley! Thanks for the kind word. I adore ModCloth. I tried to control myself very much to stop going to the site very so often. It’s like a drug.
Like a good drug…at least until I get my credit card bill! 🙂
Gorgeous photos…love your style!
Thanks for kind words 🙂
Beautiful photos Irene! Looks like a famous magazine and you are the famous model!
Hello Irene! How would you compare these macarons with Laduree or Pierre Hermes?
As a matter of fact, I have never try Laduree or Pierre Hermes macarons so I can’t comment on that question. But in April, I will be able to get back to you as I will be going to Paris for the very 1st time 🙂
Awesome! Let me know if you want suggestions for places to eat or what not. 🙂
Thanks! Oh…do you have a recommended b&b chateau in the Lordes Valley? Looking for a 4 night/5 day trip there.
I have been to the campus several times. I wish I would have applied myself in high school, I would have loved to attended. Cal State Stanislaus would have missed me though:)
Gorgeous shots! I love your top and the shoes. I can’t believe this is in California, it looks like it could be in Europe.
Thanks! Stanford campus is pretty and some part reminds me of Spain because of its Mission structure. Except without the crowd of people, at least on the day I went 🙂
Cool and informative post !
That top is gaga-gorgeous! You’re my fashion inspiration today. I just started blogging and am a bit all over the place because I’m wiring about food, fashion travel, etc. Your blog shows me that there’s no harm in doing a little bit of everything :). Thanks lady!
Thanks for the kind words. I felt in love with the top the moment I saw it. It’s just too unique and the red is just screams “hot”.
Keep blogging what you passion about and it will all come together eventually.
The red lace is very nice, the macaroons look pretty good but… that bike is truly awesome!
Wow macarons! I want that haha!
I am a sucker to macarons…not so much of the taste but the beautiful colors 🙂
Haha..:D I agree!
