Kelly and Alex’s Trip to Carmel, California

  1. Michelle Hamric says:

    WOW! Both of you look so good for the trip and wedding in Carmel. Carmel is such a beautiful and fun destination for pleasure and a perfect place for a beach wedding. I hope you had some time to explore and shop in Carmel. Were you there just for the weekend? By the way, just wondering if your husband teaches at the university in Athens, GA.

    • Thanks so much, Michelle! Carmel is lovely, we were only there for a few days. We did enjoy walking around Carmel. A lot of shops were closed because it was Sunday, but we managed to pop into a few art galleries and consignment shops. No, Alex is not a professor at UGA. Thanks so much for stopping by! xo Kelly

    Can you share the size you wear in the sweater set? I usually wear a Small but I recently purchased a sweater from jcrew and had to downsize. I’m 5’ 118 lbs.
    Thank you. Debbie

    • Hi Debbie, I have the sweater set in xs. I could have sized up if I wanted a slightly looser fit in the sweater tank, but then I think the cardigan might have been a bit long in the sleeves. I would say it’s TTS, I certainly wouldn’t downsize for this sweater set though. Thank you so much for your question, Debbie! xo Kelly

    Kelly, thank you so much for sharing your trip to California! This New Yorker loves the Monterey area too! My favorite pic is of you and Alex and what you both wore to the wedding. Beautiful!

    Kelly, love that floral dress! You both look great. Carmel-by-the -Sea is on my to Travel list. Where did you stały? World you recommend it? Enjoy your posts! Robin

    • Hi Robin, Thank you for stopping by! We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa on Del Monte Golf Course. We stayed there because that’s where the wedding party stayed. It was nice, it’s a resort type of environment because of the golf course. It’s about 10-15 minutes to Carmel-by-the-Sea. I would recommend/consider staying in Carmel-by-the-Sea if you want to be within walking distance and in the center of things. Hope that helps and that you make the trip!! xo Kelly

    So glad you had such a fun weekend in CA, and what a cute couple you are! It’s nice to see some menswear showcased (many of us buy all or most of our husbands clothes for them). I especially like the RL Sweater Alex is wearing and the current one at Nordstrom’s is a good one as well

    • Thanks so much, AJ! You know it’s true, I do a fair bit of Alex’s clothes shopping, but he’s become quite the shopper for himself! I was really happy to find that similar cardigan because it’s such a great men’s cardigan for fall and winter – Alex wore it so much last year. Thanks so much for stopping by! I will let him know you appreciate the menswear, maybe he will be up for another post in the future! xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,
    You two are such a cute couple! I love going to Hog’s Breath Inn as well, even though Clint doesn’t own it anymore…still a fun place. Glad you had a nice time! I too enjoy you sharing some men’s clothes. Loving the Cardigan and would make a nice Christmas gift for my new boyfriend. Can you give me Alex’s size or stats if that’s not too much to ask please? Thanks, Melanie

    • Hi Melanie, that’s fun that you’ve been to Hog’s Breath Inn! The cardigan is a great Christmas gift; he is wearing a size large. Thanks so much for stopping by! xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,
    Carmel is a very special place and I have enjoyed my visits there—so glad you shared your lovely weekend with us! You and Alex looked super-sharp for the wedding and it was fun to see him featured. Thank Alex for being such a good sport! I absolutely love how you reply to your readers’ comments and answer their questions. I know it is time-consuming, but it makes your connection very special. They are always so warm and friendly—and appreciated. Thank you!
