Weekend Recap: Getty Villa & C.Wonder

This was a very busy weekend! Friday night I was supposed to go to dinner with a friend but she had to cancel so I stayed over at my sister's. I will take any extra time I can get with Baby Nautical! There was actually a small plane crash pretty close to my apartment so staying at my sister's was the best way to avoid traffic too.

Saturday I met up with Leeann, Lauren, and Meg at the Getty Villa in Malibu. I hadn't been since it reopened so I was excited to finally check it out (years later)!

The weather was PERFECT, the grounds are gorgeous, and you can't beat an ocean view!

The girls doing a craft: we made our own mummies!

Our finished mummies! We still need to paint/decorate

Sunday my dc sister (who is here for a month) and I went to Fashion Island in Newport Beach to check out the newly opened C. Wonder. Seriously amazing store!! I could have spent hours browsing! They will monogram any of their clothing/accessories that you buy in store. I got a cardigan and oxford monogrammed. I'll be posting more about those when I pick them up.

I also popped into Vineyard Vines and found the cutest whale cutting board!

Today I am back at work after almost two weeks of vacation. Always tough to get back into the routine but I missed my little guy!

Linking up with Leeann for the Weekend Update!


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. C Wonder has so many fantastic items.

  2. I just recently heard about C. Wonder and am now obsessed!! Its a great store! I would love to go to one. Looks like you had shopping success :)

  4. I am so jealous of your trip to Getty Villa (beautiful!) and C.Wonder. I've never been to C.Wonder but hope to soon!

  5. love checking out new shops! sounds like a fun weekend :)

  6. I've been to the C Wonder store in New York, it was the #1 thing I wanted to do the last time I was there in March. If the new store in SoCal is anything like the one in SOHO it's gotta be amazing! They're also building one out at Tyson's Corner mall, I think it opens in the fall.
    Glad you finally got to the Villa! It's such a pretty place!

  7. Glad you got the extra baby time on Friday! I have a C. Wonder store right near me but have only ever window shopped it. I keep meaning to head back.

    Have a marvolous Monday with H.!

  8. Oooh looks like such a fun weekend for you! So happy you had a much needed long vaca break. And I love your header. Perhaps it's been a while but I am just noticing it today. So cute!


  9. SO glad you could join us! It was fun and I can't wait to paint our mummies ;)
